@perianjay Thank you! Is this the one: http://www.sephora.com/translucent-loose-setting-powder-P109908?skuId=1635176? I assume it goes on after all make-up has been applied?

 

@deecol So true. When the guys are away, the girls get productive. Haha

 

@snswedding2016 Yeah, make-up is not my thing either! I mean, I wear make-up and I think I do okay for day-to-day, but I don't get fancy with it. And forget hair. I have always been useless at anything other than a ponytail. 

 

P.S. Escort card & table number files just came in and appear to be correct and functional. Phew!

That's the one! and yes, it is one of the last steps of your makeup. It should go on 2nd last. The last step should be a setting spray. :)

@perianjay. Oh my, a setting spray? I'd never heard of this until @yycbride2016 mentioned it. Should I get some of that, too, and what product do you recommend?

Honesty all I brought was my colored lip gloss and just used what the resort offered which was MAC products. They sprayed my face after to set the makeup.

Sounds like your shower was great. I totally understand not wanting to be the center of attention.

Love the swim suits. Especially the flowered one. You will rock them. April 7 will be here in NO time. Yay!!!!

Hope you get the last of your stationary soon!

Glad you had a great shower :) I anticipate feeling awkward being the center of attention too, but it's good preparation for what's to come at our weddings.

Sexy bathing suits! Show off how hard you've worked :)

I popped into Sephora yesterday and asked about the powder because I couldn't find the travel sized one in the Laura Mercier section. The lady found it for me in the que line. Your store may have it up there as well. I purchased too - @perianjay should get commission.

You're in great shape. Soon we'll be sending you Happy Wedding Day messages! :)

@calgarybride2015, @ashhtayy Thanks for the support on the swimsuits! I'm always so self-conscious baring my tummy, even when it's looking alright. But heck, why not?

 

@krystalball When do you leave? Are you doing okay?

 

OMG we leave in a week! :o We had a nice weekend. I had 3 days off, Jeff had his usual weekend. His birthday was last Thursday, so we went out Saturday for a nice dinner. Actually, we went back to the restaurant where we went after our legal ceremony a few weeks ago. I also was able to knock some stuff off my list, including table numbers & escort cards. Here are some pix:

Sample escort card

Card box and sign. In addition to any wedding cards that guests might bring, we are also doing mad libs cards as our guest book, so we needed a place to collect those as well.

 

Also, I don't know if I posted the completed program fans from a few weeks ago:

Oh Erin, I'm so sorry I've missed so much. First off, congratulations on your legal ceremony, you looked so beautiful.

Everything has come along so well for you and the 18lbs weight loss is amazing! Way to go!!!

For the makeup, I'm like @snswedding2016 and I'm not the best when it comes to makeup tips. That's why I hired styling trio right away, I knew I'd need help for my wedding day lol. I'm glad @perianjay has you covered :)

@vancouverpetunia everything looks so good!  And your to-do list is getting smaller and smaller!  Can't believe March is almost over and you leave so soon!!!
