I am having it on the club terrace. I have it written in my contract and they honored it with several phone calls by my travel agent.

Yes I got my hair and my make-up done at the spa and so did all of my bridesmaids. I don't remember the lady's name that did my hair but I personally thought they all did a great job (I think there is only 3 of them that work in there anyways). I did book a trial hair appointment two days before the wedding so that took some of the anxiety away too; I would suggest doing that. I would also bring a picture of what you have in mind so they have something to reference and because their english is not that great. I would also watch your timing- My appointment was at 1 and my ceremony was at 4; however I was supposed to be ready to go at 3:30 and I definately was not! My hair took probably an hour and a bit for them to do and then make-up was probably 30-40 mins. I would have liked to have time to get back to my room and have a glass of champagne with my bridesmaids and just chill for a few minutes but I was a bit rushed. My photographer was waiting for me at my room when I got there and so it was a rush to take pictures of me getting ready and get my dress on, etc. So my advice is to give yourself plenty of time; they sprayed the crap out of my hair so it definately wasn't going to fall out lol! And its nice just to have time to soak in the moment, make adjustments, have a drink!! :)

Dear Michelle: They are super friendly , Iam sure  they will help you with that but you can get the glue in Michaels  I dont think they have it available , the hotel is very limited in decor and items for decor....the glue is in Spray  and it is not very expensive ...in worst case escenario  let me know when is your wedding and I can drop a bottle for you, my designer can get it easily and it is unexpensive.

 

The aisle is pretty  large but  I would say 15 meters would look nice .

 

My Pleasure

Also, would I need to provide some sort of glue or would they already have materials like that on-hand?

 

Also, any idea on the size of the runner?

 

Thanks so much!!!

Hello Ladies: I wanted to make a quick note about  the cakes that we produce , all the orders should be done thorugh Claudia your WC , we bake the special wedding cakes for Dreams  because they know  our procedures and quality  and how clean our chef works....I didnt mean  that you can bring  any cakes with no vendor fee , or directly with me , all the cakes that we have done were order through Claudia. I am sorry ladies for any confusion!

 

I can give you general information in terms of flavors or design  etc...but the order by itself should be through Claudia or Ceci please.

 

I just wanted to help..Thank you!!

 

Sandy

Thank you so much! I just wanted to say I didn't have any issues with bugs either and I would highly recommend Himitsu beach for your reception; it is smaller and more intimate and it is sheltered from the wind unlike the other beach. At Himitsu your reception will be quite close to the restaurant and just a few steps from the walking path so your grandma won't have to walk far at all. The beach is also close to the pyramid so if your guests are staying in that part of the hotel,they won't have far to go.

    • 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.
