That's really good advice actually.  We were struggling with whether or not to do the welcome supper, but with the size of our group we thought it was necessary to ensure that we saw people sometime before the wedding.  We're trying not to book the whole week before we get there.

Does anyone have any advice on gift bags, and how to get them to everyone's rooms?  I don't mind delivering them myself but I don't know if I'll be able to.  I heard somewhere $3 per bag to deliver by the hotel, but Id rather not pay that if I don't have to.  Thx!!!

We made plans for a time to meet everyone for dinner at the buffet the first night and brought the bags with us, we got almost everyone, and the rest we saw at Breakfast.  We only had 31 people though, if you had 70 - it might be trickier!

 

I had wanted a welcome dinner, but my WC never got back to me.  The day of she asked if I still wanted the reservation at the french restaurant. She hadn't confirmed beforehand, so I didn't have a chance to tell people. Since I didn't think there was any way I'd find everyone (plus we had already made other dinner plans) I cancelled it.  There was no extra charge for 31 people.

Hello ladies!  I am new to the forum so I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.  Who or where should I contact to start gathering information such as package prices and available dates and such...?  Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

Hey Ladies!

 

I just posted my planning/post wedding thread, so I have more info and pictures about the ceremony and reception and such.  Might help to answer some more questions.

My travel agent made the first contact with the resort for us.  Otherwise I think you could probably email them directly?

I used a travel agent as well, and she's been a HUGE help!!  I ended up going with Wendy Hicks of wright travel agency, the agency that's recommended on this site, as i figured they would have the most experience with dealing with destination weddings and planning!!  I would highly recommend her, and she will then guide you in each step of the planning, including contacting resorts for pricing.  I would have been lost without her!

If all of your guests are staying at the Palace you should have no problem seeing everyone before the wedding. If I could do it all over again the only thing i would change is taking a little more time to ourselves. We didn't sit down on a beach chair or a pool chair for 7 days. We were constantly walking around talking to everyone. We also never ate a meal alone because we would always run into someone we knew. I always say that it was the most fun, un-relaxing vacation I've ever had :)

Thanks for the pics, it looks beautiful. So just to clarify, there is only 1 string of lights per pole/tree, therefore 10-12 string of lights (because there is approx. 10-12 trees)? I just want to make sure!!

 

Thanks again, very much appreciated!

    • 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.
