I am in the same boat with the makeup situation. Though I have already payed for makeup application (part of our wedding package) I will be passing on that appointment to my mom. My mom thinks I'm crazy not to have my makeup done by someone, but I have been using makeup since I was 15 and I know I can pull it off.
I'm planning on going to Macy's department store in the next few weeks and buying eyeshadow from MAC, I think that they have the most saturated colors when it comes to eyeshadow. I have been using their concealer and mascara for a few years now and really love it. The only thing that I am unsure of is foundation, I have had so many different recommendations for foundation, some people swear by Bobbi Brown, my mom just bought Armani foundation she says is amazing, I don't know. I guess I'll just walk the counters and see what feels best on my skin.
Bee- What foundation did you use? You look absolutely flawless in your pictures, so perfect.
NanC- what dates will you be at DLR? We are flying in on November 22, will you still be there?
I'm so glad you brought up MAC mascara...I've been having a hard time finding one that doesn't flake or clump, so I will be sure to try that one when I go get my makeup done by them. We're havign our legal ceremony on November 5th, so I will probably have it done on that day.
I too, would love to know what type of foundation you used Bee...uninspired is right, you did look flawless!
We'll be at DLR from November 11th til November 25th. Our flight home from La Romana Airport is at @ 3:30 pm. What time do you arrive on the 22nd? All of our guests will have gone by then (they leave on the 18th), so my husband and I would love to meet you and your fianc© after you arrive. Let me know what works for you...and we will try to meet in person! When is your wedding? Are you bringing decorations down with you, or do you need any? I'm not sure what your color scheme is, but I'll be bringing down paper lanterns, table runners, linen napkins, etc...in fuchsia and orange and wasn't planning on bringing them home. If you need any of them, just let me know and I will make sure to have them there for you. Can't believe in a little over 3 weeks, I will acutally be there and getting the final details of the wedding organized! It's all happening so fast...
I hope to meet you in person at DLR...happy planning and packing.

I take it before I go away becasue I have a sensitive stomach, and don't want to risk getting sick or having an "accident" lol. I do not have any children so can't advise you about giving it to them.
I've had no problems with it, have not been sick while away (thank goodness, knock on wood!), and will also take it when it's my time to travel to DLR for my wedding
Thanks for the concurrence on taking Dukoral...my fianc© and I will be taking it and I spoke with a couple of doctors and pharmacists and have managed to convince my children's father that it is a good thing for them to take it, so I have the green light to give it to them too. I just don't want them to have their first trip to a resort end up with one or both of them getting sick. If there is any way for me to prevent that, then I will and so far, I have heard of no adverse side effects from taking it, both for adults and children. I feel very reassured. Thanks for the advice!
