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.
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!
We should be arriving at the resort on November 22nd at around 3-4pm, we land at 1:30, and have the long bus ride, so I'm assuming around 3:00pm. Would really like to get together that evening for a drink so you can fill us in on how your wedding was and what we should expect. So exciting, I can't believe that it's our turn next. Before you go we should choose a spot where we can meet in the evening.
Makeup- Couldn't get too a MAC this week and really needed mascara, so I bought Mabelline Falsies mascara at my local drugstore, just needed something to hold me over. I already have long lashes, but this made them crazy long, like I was wearing fake eyelashes. What I really like about it is that it doesn't dry fast so you had the opportunity to put a few coats on without rushing, big plus. I might try to do a combo, Mabelline to lengthen, than the MAC to thicken, will see if it works:)
We are getting marrried on Saturday the 27th. It is so nice of you to offer to leave me your decorations, but our colors are totally different, ours are Turquoise and Purple:( If you were really just planning on trashing everything maybe when we meet up you can show me what you have left and I can see if I can use anything. I might be able to use a few Fuchsia things for an extra pop of color.
This week I really can't believe that it is so close now. FI and I really need to buckle down and start getting ourselves organized. I hate to admit, but I haven't taken my dress to the seamstress yet, well I did a few months back, but I was hoping to gain some weight so I didn't leave it to get done (yes I said gain, you will see when we meet I am insanely petite). But yes, it will all get done, even if I have to corral every last person I know and bribe them to help, lol.
Happy planning Nancy, I really do look forward to meeting you and your soon to be hubby!
