I dont remember false eyelashes being present in the salon, but I also wasnt looking for them. Perhaps you can email or call EDR to ask if they have them. I went to the tanning bed (I know i hate them too, but I knew i needed some sessions in the tanning bed before being subjected to the Mexico sun!) prior to the wedding and then used Banana Boat SPF 30. After being outside for 4 days before the wedding, I started using spf 70, not because I was burning, but because I was getting so tan and didnt want to look too tan for the wedding LOL. I know they actually prefer you to use this super expensive sunscreen that doesnt have specific chemicals in it that can ruin the wildlife in the water??? I didnt hear any of this at the hotel but was told when we went scuba diving that we couldnt use our sunscreen... I had to sneak putting it on in the bathroom because I was not about to spend the day on a boat and not wear sunscreen before our wedding! Sorry fishes!!! I heard that the sunscreen at the resort in teh gift shop is so expensive mainly because its the kind of sunscreen without the chemicals.

And even better, it was listed for $100 less than David's price and even included free shipping! That was my sign, so I'm anxiously awaiting it's arrival to my door! The dress isn't real big so taking two down and using the old one for a TTD session would work out good. Maybe I can get it cleaned up good enough to sell when we get home too! Thanks for the suggestions ladies
Jillsepher - Any unexpected illness would be incredibly tough to deal with so close to your big trip, but I can't imagine how much harder it is when it's your vision! We take it for granted and never think of how tough it would be without it. Thank goodness for the timing! I'm glad to hear you are doing better...keep us updated!
TheWolferts - Did they have false eyelahes at the salon when you got your wedding makeup done? I'm not sure wether to bring some from home or not. Also, what kind of sunscreen did you take and did you think it was enough? I've read reviews where people say only zinc oxide works in the Mexican sun but also have heard that regular SPF 30 is enough protection. I've bought both but I don't want to risk getting fried before the wedding !!
We're down to three weeks before take off ! I think I can honestly say I've never been more excited for anything in my life! My FI and I have been on TripAdvisor.com reading people's reviews of the resort and looking at pictures they have posted. Some people really dog the resort but it makes you wonder if they're the kind of people who can never be pleased in life, and others offer really good tips and advice (like packing floats or rafts if you're staying in a swim up).
