Glad my planning thread has helped - that thing took forever cheesy.gif  I decided to do the menus because I had left-over card stock.  They certainly aren't a necessity.  Hmmm...the lighting was not an additional cost, but I am not sure if it was part of the reception package or with the DJ.  I am guessing it comes with the reception for safety sake.  However, the light-up dance floor did cost extra.  That is certainly not a necessity, but it was a lot of fun - so if you have room in your budget I recommend it.  I did have to rent the sound system and then have the DJ separate.  The sound system for the ceremony comes with a technician that will play the ceremony music from a CD.  If I am not mistaken, this is considerably cheaper than paying for the DJ for an extra hour for the ceremony.

First and foremost let me say THANK YOU.  I forwarded your preparation thread to my MOH.  You really penned the sentiments and visons for my own day.  Since joining and reading this forum I have emailed Cecilia to reserve the  Himitsu Beach and also requested a list of DJ's.  So far we have 17 confirmed traveling with us with a possible 8 more so I'm preparring for 25 guest.  Not sure aobut the formal menu's and formal table settings.  From the resort pictures that appear to do a decent job.  Can you elaborate?  Also could you tell me; the lighting on the beach, was that an additional cost?  And was you DJ used for the ceremony ie music while your guest waited and the reception the same, or is the ala carte, e.g. rent the sound system for the ceremony and then hire the DJ.

 

I really appreciate your time.

 

Kind Regards

Did anyone have their Reception on Caribe Beach? If so, what was your experience? Did it work out OK or was it too windy, etc.? Haven't heard much about Caribe Beach and am getting worried now.... ;)

 

Thanks so much!  You ladies are the BEST!!!

Thank you, I have decided to go with the sound system/tech for the ceremony and Dj for the reception. I'm thinking 2hours should be enough as we will have the Mexican trio for a set. BTook the advise of the amazing brides on the forum and confirmed the Himitsu Beach for the reception site. Decided against the bows on the chairs. Looking at Del Sol photographer. Cecilia has yet to give me the name of the resorts photographer so I can view their work. Now putting together center pieces. I see you brought you own photographer. Did you still use the resorts photographer that cam with the package?

I am working with Cecilia and am going out in 3 weeks, and she confirmed they have not Confirmed/set prices for the packages. She didnt take my Credit Card at all, but she DID guarantee my date/location and time.

 

Best of luck.

In house Photographer at Dreams The in-house photographer is adventure, their web site is www.adventurephotosmx.com Hi, I'm trying to debate on using another photographer I saw online (del sol). Can you tell me who the resort uses and if they have a website?  If we don't use the photographer who come with the package can we swap it for something?

    • 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.
