Hey girls,

 

Its 3 days for a legal wedding & 2 days for a non-legal.

 

FYI... we brought our own "minister" (my aunt) for our non-legal & they gave us $300 off the package. The wouldn't budge with anything else, but I was happy about that.

 

Also, your outside photographer just has to stay 1 night. (btw, you can book them at the Beach/Caribe for cheaper) they just have to be a "hotel guest" for you to not pay the $300 fee to the onsite photographer.

 

Main difference btwn Palace & Tropical/Colonial 1. Top shelf liquor 2. Unlimited a la cartes + 3 more a la carte options than the Trop/Colon 3. Palace guests can go to/use anything/eat at the Trop/Colo/Beach/Caribe

Katie! Congratulations! Your pictures are beautiful! Everything looks like it turned out just perfect :) Have you written a review yet? I'd love to hear all the great details and those little "not so great" ones either. Actually we'd all love to read it! Thanks for the info too. Were your centerpieces upgrades? And your cake? It was so pretty! Congrats again to you and CJ!

Hey ladies!

Does anyone have any information on us being able to send things to the resort before we arrive? I really don't want to have to bring all of my decorations and stuff with me on the flight. That, and I know that they decorate our ceremony site for us, but do we know if they include the chair covers, or if we have to bring them down ourselves as well? I hope that's not a stupid question..

I've emailed my WC, but she hasn't really answered any of this, and I'm starting to get ansy.

DON"T send anything down there. Customs will take it for themselves & the hotel will not accept it due to resposibiliy for it. Just divie up your stuff with your b-maids & others traveling with you & ask them all to check a bag or carry on for you.

 

Yes you get chair covers (white) & a selection of free sashes (Cream, royal blue, red, white, & coral for free) or other colors for $5 a sash just to rent sad.gif

HI Katie thank you for posting this. So if i understand you correctly I can book at the Tropical instead of the Palace and still get on the Palace property for the ceremony? I had an inquiry on this resort and I can't find rooms right now at the palace for that time frame. Besides I would much rather save the B&G some money on my stay.

OK off to go check out your review. loving that Sexy TTD siggy photo too! smile29.gif

Correct, only the bride & groom have to stay at the Palace to have their ceremony there.

You & any guests can stay at any of their other properties (Beach/Caribe or Tropical/Colonial) & still have access to the Palace for the wedding.

 

Btw... last time I checked, they Beach/Caribe is closed until Novemeber, so I would try to book your room there, its the cheapest, & they will automatically upgrade you to the Tropical/Colonial if it is still closed.

Hope the planning is going well for you. It's been pretty frustrating trying to arrange the details from afar and the WC's take so long to reply. This new photography rule has had me crazy! I've booked a photographer from St. Louis to stay for four days and as far as I know this is OK, I haven't been told otherwise...

    • 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.
