@@prater0420 you are very welcome!

I also brought 6 sets of string lights for the gazebo poles (25ft each), chair sashes for the ceremony and reception ( buy double if you plan to bring these with you as they don't move the sashes to the reception after the ceremony) and 36 paper lanterns in varying sizes. This all fit in one large suitcase and was well worth the haul. Everything looked so beautiful and I saved a ton of money!

SHEERS are organza and I paid $17 a piece for mine. I brought 3 but you'll be fine with two. Shop around for ten. I can't remember the site I purchased from but it was online. The decorating team are MAGICAL people who are EXCELLENT at what they do!!!!! I'm still amazed at their work!!!!

I brought 10 suitcases of decor. I even brought my own tablecloths I got from thetableclothfactory.com You'll save a mint doing that!!!

For chair sashes I brought spools of tulle (I bought them from the dollar store) and they cut and tied bows on the chairs with it. The way I measured was you'll need about 3 yards for each chair and the spools are 25yds each. So each spool gives you roughly 7-8 chairs (factored in error) They looked BEAUTIFUL!!!

Has anyone looked into shuttle or cabs to get transportation outside of the resort? i continue to hear its robbery.. about 80-100 bucks round trip from the resort to cancun or playa. Has anyone found other alternatives they can share? Many of my guest are showing interest on wanting to get out for a night or two from the resort.

    • 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!
