@@starbx123 My wedding ceremony and reception are confirmed for the playa azul location on 5/15/15. I even changed my wedding date (only by a day), JUST to have this location. From what I have read on here, most people say it is the most private place for you to have your ceremony and reception…except for of course a banquet hall. If you want something more private, I would definitely go with playa azul! Who is your wedding coordinator?

That's what I've read too and have decided to go with Playa Azul.  I don't mind people watching, but definitely don't want any random people in our photos.  As long as they stay out of the way! :-)  Our wedding coordinator is Aurea.  We actually received Step 2 today and are in the process of choosing our menu.  Have you chosen yours yet?

@@starbx123 We are on step 3. We chose Proscciuto Ham in crispy grissini, asparagus soup, surf & turf, & strawberry cheesecake. Have you booked any vendors yet? How long are you staying??

Good choices! The food was an easy decision for us to make and we've already picked! We actually decided on a very similar menu. The surf n turf is a no brainer :-)

 

What's exactly is crispy grissini? Sounds yummy with the prosciutto.

 

For vendors, we are flying in a photographer from home. I'm planning to do my own makeup, and not sure yet about hair. I've read that the salon is hit and miss. We prob won't use a dj and most likely ask my brother to MC the wedding and man the iPod for the evening. We are interested in the mariachi. Have you heard any feedback on them?

 

We're staying for 7 nights. Wish it was longer but I'm leaving during a busy time at work.

 

How about you?

@@starbx123 I have no idea what crispy grissini is! LOL! I think its a type of bread. My fiances aunt is a foodie, and told us for the surf and turf, these were good foods to go with it. I have heard the mariachi is great, I just could NOT spend the kind of money for such a short amount of time. We are staying for 10 nights. Would have liked longer, but our budget has already gone up and up. This wedding is a lot more expensive than what I would have liked! Which hotel are you staying at? We are staying at colonial/tropical, although I have heard after all the renos will be done that the caribe/maya beach and colonial/tropical will be equal in price and you will be able to go to all of them. We are extending our reception for an hour. Our ceremony time is at 6pm. Do you have a wedding website? Heres ours:

We're staying at the Palace.  Hubby-to-be loves snorkeling so this should be a good fit for us :)

 

Our ceremony is at 5 at Playa Azul and then I think we'll shuttle everyone back for the reception - not sure which location yet.  Yeah, I totally know what you mean about the costs, they sure add up quickly!

Hi Everyone!

 

I am getting married at the Barcelo Palace on July 8th, 2015.

 

All we've done so far is secure the gazebo for our 3pm wedding and that Marlene is our WC.

 

We are thinking about the Mint Breeze Package, but would love some more information if anyone has any regarding this package. The package includes 1 tabletop flower arrangement... is that only for the head table? or 1 for each table? so confused! Are white linen chairs the standard and you pick your own sash cover? Any information you may have regarding options for this package, please send my way!

I have read all the reviews about photography/videography...

so my understanding is that if we hire anyone from the area will have to the $500 flat fee? Can't get around that by booking the 2 nights anymore? If the 2 nights booking is still available and no outside vendor fee, I would totally be down to "share" a photographer/videographer with someone and split that cost!

    • 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!
