Thank you TLGnhci!! I figured it was something like that.

 

Can I get opinions on websites for great invitations but affordable? Did anyone make invites themselves? 

 

My FI and I are thinking pocket invitations to include all the travel information, we are going to send out around 75 and I would like to keep the budget between 200-250 :)

Justiner57- I too am looking into the pocket fold invitations with travel info. Thankfully for me my fsil is very creative and we will be making the invitations. Check out some of the forums on here. Some of the ladies post how they make their invitations. Hopefully that helps :)

OK, I am starting to freak out a little bit with everything I have to do before my wedding in September. And I am also starting to freak out about the weather and it being "hurricane" season. My TA has assured me that 99% of the time the weather is fine and might rain for like an hour or so, but I don't see ANY other Brides booked for beginning of September. Am I crazy? I mean this was the only holiday weekend that worked for us and our families and now I'm thinking it might get ruined because of the weather?

 

Any Brides who've gotten married or visited the resort around Labor Day? What are your thoughts?

I was actually there this past labor day and the weather was perfectly fine.  The forecast said rain every single day, but I think it rained a total of one hour the whole week.  I think it got cloudy a few times, but they left as quick as they came in.

 

Regarding hurricane season, obviously there is no way to predict it, but the chances of one coming towards cancun at that exact time are pretty slim.  The gulf might get 3-4 hurricanes per season.  I think cancun felt the affects of 2 last year...but no major damage...only rain and some winds. 

 

In short, I wouldn't change your date only because of hurricane season.  Maybe just have a plan in the back of your head just incase something were to happen.  The ONE positive thing about hurricanes is you have a few days (or week) notice, versus an earthquake or other major disasters.

My experience (or research) has been the same. I HEAVILY researched weather patterns before booking our October 22nd date (also at the end of hurricane season). We tracked the weather every day in October 2010. Every day predicted rain, but it never actually rained. We visited third weekend of November and it rained off and on one day but that was because a tropical storm was passing. It wasn't that bad. There's a reef that runs parallel to the coastline that protects the area from bad hurricanes. As we were touring hotels, we were commonly told "I've lived here 30 years and have only seen 2 hurricanes" - it's just not that much of a reality there. Hope that makes you feel better!!

Thank you SOOOO much ladies! That is a huge relief from people who have actually visited during this season. I know my guests will be kind of freaked out if they see rain on the forecast but as long as it isn't raining the whole time we will all be fine. I have already started emailing my WC (Elizabeth Riff) to workout a back-up plan incase it does rain. 

 

Jaime I noticed you are getting married on my birthday, great date choice :) I'm sure this will be a beautiful time of year and I can't wait to see pictures!

 

May I ask your ladies opinions on airfare? I booked with destinationweddings.com and they don't offer airfare. I've been checking websites everyday, I'm a travel assistant for a reality TV show so it's basically my job, and haven't found anything under $473 with stops. Any advice? Right now it's looking like American Airlines with a layover in Dallas.

Hmm, airfare is a tricky one right now.  I know there are still "deals" out there but I think the standard pricing is on the rise b/c of the oil prices.  I really wouldn't know what to advise with that one.  :(

Hi Ladies,

 

Anyone doing a symbolic ceremony? We are going to have our good friend be our officiant. Wondering if anyone had a good source for wording for the ceremony? And what about the unity candle vs. sand?

 

We have chosen to release two white doves at our ceremony, not sure exactly how this will time into the ceremony yet... any ideas?

 

xoxo

    • I recently was married at Las Caletas and had Tom Moks for our wedding photographer. I stumbled upon his work on Instagram and was captivated by the colors, authenticity, and ease of his photos. Each couple looked stunning and the moments they shared looked so passionate and pure. After reaching out to Tom, via email from his website, he responded a couple days later and we discussed his availability for our wedding date. I had to have him! Before I pulled the trigger and finalized down payments though, I decided to research some more and check out his reviews just to be safe. I came to this review thread and was so disappointed when I read about what brides were saying about their experiences.  I had it set it my mind that Tom would be our photographer and felt confused and scared to move forward with him. I had said from the beginning of the wedding planning (and heard from many previous brides) that photography is perhaps the most important money you will spend during your wedding planning and to not be frugal. Cautiously and anxiously, I decided to give a shot, fingers-crossed, and go with Tom. What I can tell anyone that stumbles across this page, like I did a few months ago, was that Tom was without a doubt the most incredible, talented, kind-hearted, genuine, hardworking, genius creator and capturer I’ve ever met or witnessed! From start to finish, Tom was honest, helpful, and easy going!  We decided to go with the package that gave us the opportunity to do a “Couples Shoot” before the actual wedding day (we decided to do this instead of traditional engagement pictures back home in Chicago as we loved the historic beauty and colors of downtown Puerto Vallarta.) Before the shoot, Tom and I had several phone conversations, in which we discussed all the logistics and details to the shoot. He answered my questions, gave me honest and real responses, and I told him we’d follow his lead. We chose to trust him and not overthink or plan out what we wanted. We trusted him to guide us and deliver amazing photo. And he did JUST THAT. I typically HATE taking pictures and feel so uncomfortable the second the lens is pointed in my direction. But Tom made this experience not only doable, but enjoyable! He made me feel beautiful, he made me feel comfortable, he made me feel amazing!   If you’re looking for someone who won’t be honest and candid with you, if you’re not able to take constructive feedback, if you’re not willing to laugh at yourself and your awkwardness, if you’re not willing to trust his process and let go of the control, Tom Moks may not be the photographer for you.  If you’re looking for photos back the next day or even next couple weeks, Tom may not be the photographer for you. Just know, he is an artist who is capturing moments that will last a lifetime. There should be no rush for that. I was MORE than happy waiting a couple of months for my photographs because they were the most stunning and incredible photos I’ve ever seen of myself and my husband. It was worth the wait.  I cannot thank Tom Moks enough for the work he did for my husband and I. He was present every step of the way and went above and beyond to capture each moment. I genuinely will miss him and hope you all get to experience the same feeling we did with Tom as your photographer!

    • 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.
