Renee - I love that your dad picked out your guys song 10 years ago, too cute! Jealous, I dont' get one of those!


LOL, I have seen that video! Totally something I'd do if I had the time or sanity. I really wanted to dance down the aisle too but I doubt that will happen


Nicole - of course we care! I love your aisle song, that song was suggested to me by one of my close friends, it's beautiful.

OMG - Your recessional song was my first choice!!! What I ended up deciding on is "I Want to Break Free" by Queen :)

Love, love, love November Rain too!


Meghan - I love Michael Buble! With your dance lessons it's going to be such a beautiful first dance :)


Lindz - Good thing to start thinking about! Songs are something I've been steadily working on for about 6 months now, I didn't want to have to rush it.

Love Song by 311?! This is what I wanted our first dance to be to but FI thought it was weird, I LOVE IT! "You Are the Best Thing" by Ray LaMontagne is my second option for a recessional... I have a lot of back ups... Maybe I should post MY songs, LOL!

Hi girls!


Alright so I'm in OOT bag frenzy mode right now... somehow in the mix of it all I ended up with an erroneous order that had to be resent but they let me keep the wrong item.


I ordered 25 dry erase door hangers complete with the plan dry erase market that has a sticky thing you peel off to expose and stick on the door hanger. I bought these to put in OOT bags for my guests so they can leave notes for each other and mention where they are. I could see my guests having a lot of fun with this.


I ordered plain white ones but the ones that came say "Leave a note" at the top and "Go Mavericks" at the bottom randomly... I was planning to sell them with a few more items after the wedding but thought I'd offer them to you girls before I did that just in case.

I have 25 door hangers and 25 pens - $25 which includes shipping costs

    • 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.
