Even if a bride left stuff there they would charge you to use it! That's what we're dealing with at AB. We wanted to use some umbrellas a bride left at the resort for future couples to use. The hotel charges $6 per umbrella plus a $50 hanging fee. While $140 is not much in the grand scheme of things, it's the principle of it that really pisses us off, so we will not be using the umbrellas!

Google! I copied & pasted tons and then decided on a couple main things I really liked and wanted to say - like adventure with you through life, help to grow intellectually, and "I promise this for all of my days".

We are going over the words next weekend together to see if we want to change them at all. Our vows are the same for eachother - the introduction the minister does before the vows is slightly different.

I started with the ceremony Tiffany gave me & changed pretty much the whole thing - LOL.

We are having "The Art of Marriage" by Wilfred A Peterson read by FI's Mom too. LOVE it.

And doing the "Hand Ceremony".

Seriously, I guess brides used to go to the library to find all this stuff? How much easier we have it with GOOGLE!!!

Sammy, I am using 2 sheets - so its a lot of money! I wish I had not said I wanted the 2 sheets until I got down to Mexico and seen if maybe they would not charge me for the 2nd one. Ah well..... I am doing uncovered chairs and no bows so I am saving $ there I suppose. I am using the wooden plank runner and 2 tall glass flower vases with white Gladiolas in them. I am going for more of a rustic theme/look for the ceremony, hence the simple, all white decor.

I feel exactly the same way. With this sorta thing you have to weight things out and see what just works the best, bringing your own or just coughing up the money. I'm leaving so much stuff there, I wish I could pass it along to another bride getting married the following week or something.

I am writing our entire ceremony with FI... ish. wink.gif We are both each writing our own vows, they will both be different and we won't know what they say until we hear them wedding day. FI wouldn't even let me outline a structure for them, oh well.

I did however buy some pashmina's from another BDW bride. It actually feels like I accomplished something... even if it wasn't on my list. Every little bit counts!
Gotta love the crazy Saturday nights, I had a great weekend as well, Sunday was a little rough getting out of bed and having to go to our first dance lesson... but once we were done and I realized we were exactly 5 miles from the beach, I hit PCH and we drove for awhile and then grabbed some seafood on the ocean, that was amazing the weather over the weekend was GORGEOUS.

Pashminas weren't in my plan either but I bought some and love them!

Sorry for being an MQ whore, trying to catch up with you girls!

I bought real touch flowers, I am about to get my final proof pictures any day now and I'll put up some pictures once I get them. http://www.sharonnagassardesigns.com/ is where I got mine from.

 

 

 

Awww, thanks Nicole! This morning, waking up at what now is 4am, after tossing and turning all night, wedding nightmares and general bad sleep, I look like a zombie.

 

 

 

I too am buying 2 pieces of fabric and got quoted $50 each or $65 or something I think, white is cheaper I believe.

    • 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!
