We leave for Dreams resort 5 weeks from today!  Can't believe it is so close.  I had my bridal shower yesterday and I received so many beautiful things.  My bachelorette party is in 3 weeks and then the wedding.  Down to just a few details to handle.  The sand ceremony, still need to finalize the wording and make sure I have all correct vases for it.  We are actually having all of our guests participate in the sand ceremony also to make it a little more special.  I still need to work on the music for the ceremony to make sure it times out correctly.  I did get a call from the DJ last week and he was very cool and helpful.  I'm still debating about the time also.  We are not having an actual cocktail party because I traded it for 10 more guests (we are having 30 total) but from what everyone says on here , the guests can just hang out at the bar while we are getting pictures done.  The DJ did say that by the time we eat and everything, if dinner started at 6:00, we wouldn't get dancing etc, till after 7:30.  I only have reserved the DJ for 3 hours, and with taxes etc, that is pretty pricey.  I guess if we are having fun I think I can actually try to get him to stay an extra hour??  Any suggestions here?  I'm also trying to work on our program and the wedding starts at 4:00, and I'm guessing 45 min. tops, just because we are doing extra for the sand ceremony, pictures for a little over an hour?  I thought 6:00 for the dinner, reception to start so the guests can stay and have a drink and wait, or go to the room to freshen up before coming back.  Does that time line make sense to you guys?  You are my experts here.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.  By the way who are the other November b rides on here right now?  I'm 11-11-10 and I know I've talked to a few of you that are that same week.  We found out the resort is sold out that week, mainly on our actual wedding day.  I had 6 people that were not able to book rooms that were planning to come, but they waited to long.  Wondered what was going on that it sold out.  I didn't think November was a big wedding month?  thanks for any advice....11-11-10 bride.

Tori,  I am working on my music right now.  I talked to my DJ (I'm paying for them to set up the sound system for the ceremony) and he told me to have it all on a disc.  I actually have it pretty detailed.  Here is my order so far, I just have a couple questions still on the witness portions of the ceremony, I thought someone said that took up time so if anyhone know if that is after the ceremony or during that would be helpful.1. 3-4 songs while guests are being seated, etc. 2. One song for the seating of the parents. 3. Song my bridesmaids walk in to 4. my processional song, 5.3-4 songs for the Sanc Ceremony or Witness portion if that is in the ceremony 6. Recessional song  7. Then a couple songs to play while guests are walking out.  Hope this helps you.

I did the same thing.  My wedding is next june and I did my site visit this past june.  I talked with Claudia, Juan, and Mike.  Juan did my engagement photos only (hired my own photographer), and Mike will do our video.  I set up a highlights reel, blu ray, and an extra hour.  Very excited for you!  2012 will come sooner than you think!
 

Meldal!!!!!!  OMG have fun!  Safe trip!

Hi Ladies!

 

I am 99% sure that I am a Dreams Cancun bride!  I have signed a contract for November 5, 2011 and they just charged my credit card for the wedding deposit.  I am just waiting to get a copy of the contract signed by Claudia before I feel 100% confident that I have a wedding date.

 

I have been active on this site since June and I have been lurking around this thread while 1) deciding  between Dreams Cancun & Dreams Puerto Aventuras and then 2) working on securing a date with TA Jill.

 

Congrats to all the brides that are nearing their special days!

 

Courtney

    • 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.
