Also, there was a page labeled garnishing, is it one garnishing or two?
i was wondering this too, i'm not crazy about some of the menu options for the luxury pkg either, and i would like to possibly get some of the other options from the other menus, but haven't heard if we can do that or not?
also, i would like to know how many choices for garnishes we get with the luxury package?

Hey I just noticed your post about being from Dallas. I'm sooo slow haha! But yey! I'm actually from a really little town just east. You know how everyone always pictures Texas as open pastures of cows and horses and all that junk? That's my town to a T!

 

And let me tell you I'm sick of this weather we're having today! Come on summer!! :)

can some of you ask your WCs about the legal ceremony outline? i need to email my WC again to clarify that we can personalize our legal ceremony. Krisswim said we can't change anything if we have a legal ceremony.
HI - yeah i was told you couldn't change anything for the legal ceremony. But the day of my wedding as i am waiting with my bridesmaids for the ceremony to begin the judge asked me if we had written out our own vows! I was like "uh no we were told we couldn't"....not that i wanted to though....but still!!! Talk about giving me some notice!! So who knows. I think vows are ok, but sand stuff and readings are a no ( unless this has changed since the beginning of May).
One word of advice though for all brides: I was really stressed about silly things like programs and decorations, table cards etc...but really when you get there they treat you SO WELL and are SOO attentive towards you. EVERYTHING is taken care of right away. All my worries were immediately eased. I was able to call my WC anytime while i was there OR go see her in her office. It was terrific! (Michelle was my WC) She ROCKED - actually even before the wedding i never had trouble hearing back from her.

The legal ceremony went like this:
Judge does an introduction - she said a nice reading from a Mexican poet or something like that. then she did vows. Then we did rings ( kinda similar vows) then we signed the marriage certificate and did our thumbprints. Then we kissed. And it was over!
Its really quick but really nice. I ended up not doing programs ( mainly b.c i ran out of time and realized that I was getting married in Mexico - so who really cares?!) But then b/c of the swine flu half our guests canceled the day before we were leaving and half of the wedding party had to cancel too. So i
am SO glad i didn't waste my time with them. LOL.
If anyone wants the name of that Mexican poet i can watch my video and try to get his name. PM if you want more info too!
Thanks!
Shannon (Kriswim)

Yes they do offer steaming, they need the dress 2 days in advance. I do not know the cost though, it is included in many of the packages.

Oh, I bet! FI is from Canada and he always tells me I have no idea what cold is (when I say i'm freezing lol), so I bet you feel the same :-). We just had a record snow fall here two weeks ago (snow is rare here) and it also snowed over Christmas (when the day before it was mid 70's and i was in shorts). Crazy stuff!

Thanks Stephanie and dianep! I have the Eternal Romance package so it's not included in mine. But if it's really $30 that isn't bad.

 

And dianep all of my family lives up north - Minn, Chicago, Penn... they always tell me my blood is too thin. Haha. I was in Chicago over Christmas when it was -10 degrees and I thought I was going to die. And yes as Lisa said we had about 12 inches of snow a few weeks ago. It was so pretty!! :)

This is exactly what I thought, too. Remember when they said they had a "big meeting" a few weeks ago? I mean, I HOPE they are, but we shall see.





Was this for luxury package? If so, I didn't get that one lol
We did not get a package, we decided to do a la carte. We are having a three hour private reception, though. She told me that this included a four course meal.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
