Recommended Posts

Hi all-

 

I've been reading your posts and you are all incredible!! Thanks for all the info I've learned already!

 

I am trying to plan a wedding in Cabo for March 2009 and i have NO IDEA what i'm doing!! I've never even been there but my bf (still not ready to use the word fiance) wink.gif and i have wanted to go forever!!

 

Do i have enough time to plan this by March 09?

 

Should i be worried about it being spring break season??

 

i've been looking at the big places like the Sheraton and the Westin, but are there any "diamonds in the rough" that i should look into??

 

any and all advice would be sooo appreciated!!

thanks!

joni

Welcome and Congrats!

 

I would suggest browsing hte wedding reviews and Cabo forums first to gather some info.

 

You have plenty of time to plan! You might want to look at some different travel agencies who can give you more specific info and pricing. We have several great ones here!

 

ALos, You should probably start with a wish list. Include budgetary concerns, all-inclusive or not, adults only or family oriented, etc.

 

Good luck and happy planning!

You have PLENTY of time to plan everything. No worries on the time line.

 

I can't speak for Cabo but I was married in PV March '08 and we had no spring break troubles. My aunt did got to Cabo the week before our wedding- around March 21st and she said spring break was CRAZY there. She said she will never go back again during that time frame.

Joni, Congrats and welcome to the Forum.

 

I can tell you from experience that you still do have time, but I wouldn't wait to long. But if your flexible with the dates you may not have a problem. I waited until 6 months before and had to pick what was open. Rather than getting my date. But that was no big deal to us as long as we could do a late afternoon wedding.

I picked RUI Santa Fe for a couple of reasons: 1) All inclusive 2) My daughter will be going and it is kid friendly 3) It is close to downtown.

 

I have been there before and stayed at the Melia Cabo Real and it was a $25 cab ride each way to do anything in town or at the marina.

 

Hope this helps. I would look in the Cabo section for more information.

Welcome!! You totally have enough time!! Some resorts dont allow people of the age of spring breakers without parents during that time period so maybe look into something like that?

Welcome Joni! You def have time if your flexible with what dates are open. One of the things to start off with is thinking of how many people you plan to invite and what type of wedding you want. What I mean by that is if your going to have a lot of children at your wedding you may want to look for a family friendly resort. If you want seclusion and privacy then you will have to look at another set of resorts. If you want all-inclusive then you would go a different route. You should talk to your FI and you should figure out what needs your guest will have and then it will be easier to direct you to some specific resorts. Good luck with the planning!

    • 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.

    • 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!
