No problem!! good luck with your planning!

Regarding Del Sol Photography, yes their work is excellent!!! I couldn't afford to hire Sol or Matt, but their associate Vincent was in my budget, so we hired him. Matt and Sol both edit the pictures, so no matter what the "Del Sol signature" quality is there! I'm sooo excited to work with Vincent and I know he's going to do an excellent job as well!!

Definitely let me know how everything goes. I am really leaning towards RPLA for my wedding location. I have read several reviews on here and looked at lots of pictures and I just really like it. Where are you having your ceremony? On the beach or the gazebo? I really like the beach idea and while I know there are nicer beaches outside the hotel zone in Cancun, I really love how central the hotel is and I'm more familiar with that area. Anyway, I'm sure I will have more questions for you. I hope you don't mind!

I don't mind the questions, I'm glad to help!! To be really honest, the main reason I chose this hotel from the rest is because when my FI and I stayed there last year, we were so impressed with the hotel and their service. We wanted to make sure that if our guests were going to be spending $$ on staying at a hotel, that they will be getting their $$'s worth. Although there are pleny of other beautiful hotels in Cancun, it was important to us to be able to trust the hotel on what it actually looked like beside pics online, what the food tasted like, the location (which is walking distance from all the bars/clubs) and the customer service they had and they truely met all those expections.

To answer your question,we are getting married at the gazebo and it overlooks the ocean (I believe I added a pic of it previously). Feel free to ask anything else...

OK, I just put in my wedding request for RPLA! smile29.gif

 

I though I would explain why I chose this hotel but first, I really want to give a shout out to this website. It has been sooo helpful in gathering information on different resorts. I have spent the past month just reading reviews (and learning to navigate the forum) and I really appreciate all the resort details and awesome wedding ideas! I'm so happy to have found it!

 

Reasons I picked Riu Palace Las Americas:

 

1. Did you see Mrs. Martin's pictures? Gorgeous!

 

2. Central location. Resort is close to the clubs, shopping, ferry to Isla Mujeres, etc. (I have a wide age group coming and lots of partiers so I need options)

 

3. Cost. Its not the most expensive resort but not the cheapest ~$330/night

 

4. Access to all Riu resorts. This may not seem like a big deal but I found it to be really useful when I went to Cancun before. Plus, I think RPLA is more for adults (although I do have two younger kids coming) so I would rather stay there. However, we can walk next door to hang out at Riu Cancun (where the club is).

 

5. The wedding package. I chose the Riu Royal wedding package, which is good for up to 50 guests. I'm not going to be very picky about extras at my wedding so this package has pretty much everything I need.

 

6. Beach wedding! I really want a wedding in the sand and this resort has that option.

 

7. No private reception. This isn't really a reason why I picked this resort, but I don't really care about a private reception so I didn't pick something else.

 

So, those are my reasons. I'm excited for the wedding, but I'm also excited to hang out with my guests and just have a good time. And do a lot of this! shots.gif

Congrats on picking your resort cheer2.gif

 

Have you heard back from the coordinator yet to confirm your date? It took almost a week for them to reply to me.

 

Your guests sound like mine, all they want to do is party! The location is perfect for that because I already know our friends are going to be drinking at the hotel, walking to every bar downtown and drinking there, then when the sun starts coming up they will walk back to the hotel and drink some more!

 

Good luck with your planning and again, I will keep you posted on all the info I start receiving from the coordinator these next few weeks!

I haven't been contacted by the WC yet but I did recieve an email saying they received my request. I put it in on Friday afternoon and the email says it could take up to 10 days for them to send a confirmation code. Unfortunately, they didn't have the Saturday available I was hoping for so I booked for Friday.

Oh man, I just realized our wedding date is 9/11! I hope that's not bad luck! Well, I definitely won't forget our anniversary. doh.gif

 

Yeah, I think my guests are mostly going to be friends so it will probably be a little crazy. I'm considering that Booze Cruise to Isla Mujeres friday.gif

Mrs. Martin,

 

I do have a quick question for you. Do you know the name of the WC? I'm working on booking Vanessa Vargas as my photographer. (I'm so excited she is available because I love her work!) Anyway, Vanessa needs the name, phone # and email of the WC, but I don't even know who that is. I can email the hotel too but I thought I would just ask you.

 

Thanks!

 

Amy

    • 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!
