    I'm pretty much all ready for the big day. I need to order our chair sashes and pick up my dress on 5/15. Other than that, it's time to sit back & relax.... Countdown is 37 days until we leave!

      Ladies I have a question if any of you have time. I don't wear much makeup at all and have no idea what to buy. Would it be better for me to make an appt with Mac or with Sephora to help with wedding day makeup?

        Got our wedding bands tonight! He said he wanted something "cheap", I went in with a loose budget wanting to see what looked best with my ring (three stone round brilliant). Well what do you know, what I liked best with my bling was a simple thin white gold band which was inexpensive and I. The end his cost much more then mine! He will not live this down for quite a while haha!

            Hey Everyone, Just back from Eleuthera!  It was my MOH's wedding (she's also my MOH).

             

            It was beautiful and I learned a few things...

             

            1)  They kept the ceremony very short and sweet.. no readings, no programs, no sand ceremony.. it was actually beautiful!

            2)  All inclusive is key!  The wedding was in Eleuthera and guests stayed in apartments.  Since most didn't have cars, they had limited access to the supermarket and food was extremely expensive.  A case of beer was $45, a gallon of milk as $8!  Entrees at the 2 restaurants were also expensive.  However, Bride and Groom hosted a cocktail party (Fri) and a rehearsal dinner bonfire (Sat) before the wedding (Sun).  Food was awesome!

            3)  I didn't want Matt to see me before the ceremony but now I will surprise him at the courtyard of the hotel so we can take some pictures before the wedding.  It was so wonderful to see the groom's reaction when he saw the bride for the first time!

            4) Couple didn't do a rehearsal the day before.  There was no need for it because the ceremony was very simple.. we were just told where to go minutes before the ceremony and it was so easy... I'm considering that.

            5) My MOH was so calm during the entire weekend.. she just had fun and went with the flow.  If something went wrong, we didn't see it.. so I will be packing that same positive attitude with me when I pack my bags to Mexico!

             

            Fun Fact - she got married on Mother's day weekend and I'm getting married on Father's day weekend!  We must share a brain.. lol
