Recommended Posts

I believe you have to bring your own

which is probably best anyway as you can have the exact colors of sand you want

Megz- for our wedding, we are just choosing one of the bars to meet at and have some drinks to fill in our time, its free cuz your just taking advantage of the all inclusive! After the ceremony and champagne toast, i'm having all my guests meet at the beach bar for drinks while we do photos, then by that time it's time for dinner (our ceremony is at 3 and was told the ceremony, signing amd toast will take me til almost 4ish) then after dinner til the disco opens were all going to the piano bar (ya they have one!! woo) for drinks til the disco opens. just an idea! congrats and good luck!

We are getting married December 8th, 2011 (date has been confirmed with the wedding planner).


The wedding is set for the palapas beach location for 2pm. I was hoping for some advice on how the rest of the afternoon should go after the ceremony. I want to have a reception for a few hours, but not till a bit later in the evening.


I am assuming the wedding with take half an hour, then probably photos for an hour.... We are getting the unforgettable package, which I think includes a dinner... and then I would like a reception after that. How would you fill the time between the photos and the dinner/reception?


Any other advice would be extremely appreciated!!!

cdlillad- that is a freakin adorable cake topper! and funny cuz my fiance is wearing that exact outfit! lol


Wcook- i remember seeing somewhere on this thread that this one bride brought 12-13 yards of fabric but it didn't touch the ground. I'm bringing 15 yards down just in case, and if there is extra their just gonna make bows for the chairs out of it :)

Just over 5 weeks for us too!!!!!  Sooooooe excited!!


I just found that out about the Blissful love package only being a consultation, a bit annoyed really as it clearly says in my documents from First Choice....'Free trial hairstlye for the bride'.....not free consultation.


We are doing a sand ceremony.....have written the words out myself from bits & pieces off of the internet & Jazmin has said she will read out for us.  We are lucky in that my cousin lives in LA so I I have ordered a set to go to them & they will bring down to Mexico for us.


I wonder how babyshaws is getting on!!  Can't wait to hear all about her wedding.......come on ladies we want reviews!! :) :)

Waybuloo- I know i bet Babyshaws is having an amazing time :0)-not long for us now either! 


Lucky that you have a cousin in LA to send the sand ceremony kit to-good thinking - i have seen a few options around Ikea is surprisingly good for the vase's so think i'll be able to DIY a kit form a few different sources- however the future husband is constantly reminding how much we are already taking so we will see :0} doesn't help that i'm taking two dresses lol!!


Yes it is disappointing about the 'Blissful love' package stating free hair styling-when in fact it a consultation-glad i found out when i did as i quickly realised and did not have my heart set on a 'practice run' think it also helps that my 'look' is fairly relaxed- in terms of how i want my hair and make up there are the two things if i'm completely honest i have not spent much time mulling over i know i dont want my hair 'perfect' looking as in not a strand out of place-would just be impossible on the beach with a breeze! and my make-up i'm hoping to have a natural glow with the Mexico suntan i hopefully will develop with the week and 2 days b4 wedding lol,


Having said that my dress is still dressy and the FH is wearing beige suit and Grooms men wearing suit trousers and white shirts so still fairly formal -but beach worthy lol 

ooooooooooooo exciting xx

    • 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.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
