@@atyson03 I am headed down in 41 days! And I really really wanted peonies for a bouquet , so I booked them with my coordinator and than started thinking about how outrageous the price was for them (300 dollars !) So I canceled it and bought a silk peony bouquet off of etsy cost me 150 dollars but at least I'll have it more than ten minutes now and get to keep it as a keepsake .. anyways I'm going to wrap it in bubble wrap and put it in my carryon , I'm worried about doing that though because it has decorative pins in it. So a shoebox and bubble wrap in my checked bag may have to do.

 

We also went to Michaels and bought silk flowers and ribbon and made the bridesmaid bouquets , which was WAY cheaper than 80 bucks a bouquet down there. Michaels has good sales and coupons usually so it worked well.

I ordered real touch bouquets from an Etsy vendor. I hope to see them soon. I picked 3 colors to use and explained my vision for wedding. She will use flowers from her surplus from other orders. I got a huge discount! About 200 for bouquets, bouts, corsages for my entire bridal party. I cant spreak to her work though since i have not rrcueved yet..if you are interested in doing something like that, pm me and i will be happy to pass along that info. And i attached the silk flowers i will use for centerpieces. I will look to sell them after wedding (june 21, 2015) post-278682-142669637923_thumb.jpg

@@BecomingaRiggio I love those for the centerpieces!! Your wedding date is only 5 days before mine! I am getting so excited, but didnt know what to do for centerpieces so I was just gonna do some candles because I didnt want to have to travel with a lot of things. are you worried about having to bring them down without getting damaged?

@@atyson03 I submitted serveral pics of different flower options for pricing before I got what I wanted. I decided early on what was important to me and what I was willing to compromise on. I really wanted real flowers so the compromise came in the arrangements. I went more simple for the bridesmaids, but they are beautiful bouquets- 60 bucks each! My bouquet is about 180. I originally really wanted all the expensive bouquets (the peonies, cymbidium orchids, etc...) but ultimately decided to do flowers that we more in season, and not as difficult. White, ivory, blush roses are a really nice touch and adding more greenery can make everything look fuller without spending as much :) Good luck, hope this helps!

I have a question for everyone; I'm looking on Amazon for my own sheers to buy for the ceremony since they charge 100 bucks each. Does anyone know what kind of material I should be looking for or any links to where they bought theirs? The measurements the WC gave me are in meters which is a unique conversion so I'm having a little trouble really knowing what I should be looking for exactly. It always takes me a week to get a response from my WC so I thought I'd reach out here! Thanks in advance :)

I was just about to ask the exact same thing ! Your wedding date is 2 days before mine I just noticed:) 2.5 M is roughly 8 feet, but I have no idea what would work for decorating the gazebo. Let me know if you find anything out!

I just had my wedding last weekend and it was amazing. Everything was absolutely perfect!

The sheers I brought with me were purchased from Amazon. You can buy them by the yard. I bought 2 organza sheers at 10 yards each (60 inches wide)and that was more than enough.

They cost me about $35 bucks each. Good luck!

    • 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!
