Hey Marianne!  I'm happy to see another November bride on here!  I would definitely be interested in hearing more about this if it works out for you.  I don't want to carry a ton of stuff with me (I already have tons w/o adding in a bunch of decorations), and I don't want to pay the ridiculous prices charged by Lomas for everything either.  So another option would be great!

 

Happy planning!

I will be connecting with her next week and if it looks promising, I'd be happy to share!
Just let me know,
Marianne

IMO....I really don't know how it would work with them being at another hotel, so I wouldn't worry about it.  Perhaps you can give them theirs at your wedding?  That way they can take it back to their hotel to use for the rest of their trip (assuming this would work out time wise with your plans)

Just a thought....

I have a question about OOT bags. I have heard mixed reviews on these.... some ladies said they aren't worth the time & trouble and that most guests didn't even really use. Others say that their guests loved them & used them all the time. Here is my problem, we have about 3 or 4 families staying at an outside resort (annoying I know) but I don't want them to feel excluded if they don't get an OOT bag. I have no way of getting in touch with the resort before hand and don't feel like I should take the trouble to get their bags to the resort since they aren't staying at our resort. But I want to do something nice for everyone...

 

Any thoughts or ideas :)

I had little to no problems and the ones I did have we my fault and not the staffs. For example I forgot the Groomsmen butonniers in the room 30 min before the ceremoney but they ran back and got them for me. It was Was WINDY on the beach but again nothing anyone could do about it.
I had no real problems with music and my set-up fee was only $80 but I didn't have that much to set-up. I will post full review and what not this week!

I got two samples from my photographer, Maria Angela Photography, to share.  :)  I think the rest may take a little while, so these will have to hold me over for a bit.  Prof - Garden laughingsmaller.jpgProf - Front of ASsmaller.jpg

I am so glad you had a great experience, and I can't wait to see your review!  I'm glad to hear your set up fees were reasonable too.  The closer it gets to time to go, the more I am deciding to leave things behind.  What time of day did you get married?  I'm starting to stress because we have a destination wedding to attend this weekend and then we leave for our own when we get back!

Jesse, my coordinator was Claudia who Olympia (the girl I originally met when we arrived says is a stickler).  Olympia was supposed to see what she could do about having them drape the shears for me but she wasn't there on our wedding day.  :( 

 

Justine, We shot in sooo many locations!!  Like Murmel said, the wall is the front of the resort.  There's also a pretty fountain type thing there where we took pics and the sky should look really pretty in the background of those.  You have the tall steps that are lit up at night, the bridges, lots of tropical areas (the pic I have on here was taken right outside the Spoons Restaurant.  There's a cute carriage by the yellow restaurant (can never remember the names), and Le Chique is a cool place to take pics but we didn't.  There's the pier, many palm trees, the beach.  The list goes on.  :)  I originally wanted to travel for the TTD session but I figured it might be too much of a headache so we did it at the resort, and I think got some cute shots.  I am sooo anxious to see them all!

    • 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!
