Recommended Posts

Have any past Bahia brides had their wedding dinner at the Don Pablo?  :)  How many guests were seated at each table?  My fiance and I are trying to figure out how many centerpieces we will need.

Hi Ladies!! Were back from our wedding, and everything was just gorgeous! The staff and wedding coordinators are amazing and will do everything to make your day special. If any of you guys have any questions, just ask or pm me :)

Here's a few tips:

1) private poolside reception definitely a MUST! Jumping in the pool at night was definitely memorable. We hired the resort Dj and he was great!! I was a bit scared at first after reading all the reviewsY&N-10.jpg, but he was honestly amazing. He had most of the songs we requested, but if he didn't he would quickly download it.

2) At the end of the night make sure you pack up all your center pieces and chair sashes or else its your loss.  

3) I wanted flower lillies for my hair and for the bridesmaid, but when I got them they were HUGH... so we didn't end up using them. My advice is to get fake ones or orchids.

4) We got married at the beach in Akumal (Hammock location), it was so beautiful but breezy as well.... so make sure your hair is tied up ;). Luckily we had an engagement shoot the night before the wedding, so I quickly changed my hairstyle so it wouldn't get it the way.

5) TTD- Initially wanted to do it at the cenote, but ran out of time. HOWEVER, the paradise beach is goooorgeous ... white sand, palm trees, turquoise water, and fishing boats. Definitely the postcard look. Oh, and get the resort to call the cab for you so you don't get ripped off. We asked for prices before hand too. We also paid our cab to $10 USD an hour to wait for us while we did our photo shoot so that we didn't have to grab another cab.

    • 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.
