Congrats @@BecomingaRiggio! Thanks for sharing!

 

I haven't considered Plaza Zocalo until you mentioned it. You said it's more intimate? It looks so big in your photos! I'm currently booked at Zavas but I'm interested in a more intimate space, especially if its also cooler. I'll have 3 or 4 tables so I don't want the space to look too empty. It looks like Zocalo comfortably fits a lot more tables from your pics. How did you find it more intimate?

Hi @@HolaAmigos! The 2 days prior to the wedding were partly cloudy and hot. But wedding day not one cloud and it felt even more hot and humid. It wasnt too bad on the Sky Deck cause we had a breeze but the sun was still shining bright at 530pm.

 

I wasnt melting in my dress until we started to party.. we ended up getting the little hand towels from the spa to cool off. ($1 a towel). I saw a video where i was wiping sweat from my forehead. Luckily i decided against spanx and any indergarmets that would be hard to put back on w sweat.. it was dripping down my legs too.

 

Unfortunately, i drank a bit much and i remember the evening in patches. I was told that I had a wonderful time!

@@blushxo, Hi!! I still like Zavas, but i fell in love with the Zocalo. It has swinging chairs and beds that make it very loungy and sexy..they couldnt stay for my reception but im sure they could keep them if you asked. That would take up some of your space. I meant it seemed more intimate beacuse it has a hedge that encircles the Zocalo. It near the restaurant and so there is more space between the venue and guest rooms. Either location is great..but Zocalo was exactly what i envisoned in my head.

@@carrieandsam - Sorry I totally missed your question from earlier.  We arrive on the 15th - our guests are coming on the 17th. Then a bunch of us are staying the week.

 

@@BecomingaRiggio - Congrats!  Everything looks amazing - love your dress and your reception location! 

 

Does anyone have any info on the beach private events locations?  We're looking for a flat beach surface (my grandmother recently broke her hip and isn't overly mobile) where we can put out tiki torches and have a low key private event....any insight on the difference between Beach Building 3 and Palapa Yoga (other than the wooden structure) would be great.

Thanks in advance!

I want to buy a house next year (and I live in LA $$$) so Im saving where I can by doing crafts. I got these little plates and stands at the cent store, I painted over what was on them with White paint then cut out #'s I printed from online and covered the whole plate in mod podge. If you need to stay on budget, enlist a crafty friend and go nuts!!

Ugh ladies, please don't go overboard drinking. You will regret it. Amd give yourselves at least 2 hrs back in your room after the salon to unwind and take a minute to eat. Make a list of family members you want in ur pics. I dont remember taking a big family shot. Even a shot of us in sky deck.

    • 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!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
