    I've booked our condo in Hawaii, and reserved the reception hall for our AHR. Oh, and I've bought my dress and my FI's outfit. That's about it. I'm going to start working on my diy invites (for AHR) next week. Mostly I've just researched everything. I'm not worried at all.

      So what are you girls doing for makeup for the big day? Since we're going on a cruise, they ships salon doesn't offer make up service. So my aunt (that sounds weird since she's 3 years older then me and I never call her that!) is going to do my makeup, since we're not having a wedding party so I wanted to give her something special to do.

      I normally wear Bare Minerals. I was thinking of going like 2 weeks before we leave and taking her with me to Mac since everyone raves about there makeup. Atleast to get some foundation and eye makeup.

      What do you girls suggest?

          Oh my goodness! You ladies are on the ball! I thought I was on track with everything until I just saw these threads! :-) I have been doing so much research on this forum and looking for certain things on-line that I can't check certain things off yet because I'm still searching but...

          Here's what we have done:
          Chose our date for Aruba Wedding
          Aruba Marriott Beach Ceremony & Reception- deposit pd
          Booked date & location for Welcome Reception
          Booked date & location for Thank You Reception (this will include guests who couldnt' make the trip as well)
          Booked FI & I's flights and room
          BM Dresses
          Engagement Pics

              I haven't decided on make up yet. I did my own for my sister's wedding, but I will probably have them do it for me at the salon.

                I haven't even thought about makeup yet... I've been slacking and haven't done a whole lot more. But my mom and her best friend are coming up the first weekend in December to help me register and look at invites. Next on my list are my STD's.

                  Invitations Sent: We wanted to get them out early
                  Wedding Registry Done: Although I have to go online and take a few things off...Like the Wii my Fiance ran off and added
                  Passorts Done: Well both my FI and I have them, but his expires 5 months after the wedding so he needs to get it renewed

                      Mel your invites are to cute.

                      We're in the process of getting ours printed for our AHR. They'll go out in March. Right now alot is on hold till after the holidays, then its full steam ahead on wedding stuff.

                      I looked at my ticker today and nearly had a heart attack. Time is flying by!!!
