I think the rental price is $1,500? My DJ doesn't need to rent equipment he's bringing his own.

Crista, you're welcome! I hope you guys have a fabulous time. We really wanted to do the snorkeling trip but chose the sunset one instead in hopes that our guests wouldn't come back from the sail looking like lobsters. We're hoping to avoid a bunch of bright red skin in our pro pics! The only day we could do it was the day before the wedding and half our guests will only have arrived the day before. They can get burned on their own but we don't want to be responsible for it, LOL.

That is a great idea! You're very nice to your guests. Since we're taking our guests sailing in Mexico, we figured that would be their "thank you for coming/ we're so happy you're here."

 

How many guests do you have booked? I would love to take my guests sailing but when it is all said and done, I think we will have 65-75 guests. So the boat trip will be very expensive. I still have my heart on doing something special for everyone. What company are you using?

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome!!

 

Regarding the comment about packages, did most everyone buy the basic 'pearl' package and customize (unless planning on the Sky add-on which requires the silver package)? It seems that this may be the way to go if doing a private beach reception?? Also, just trying to get a sense of everything, are most bringing their own centerpieces? I've seen a few posts regarding that.

 

Thanks ladies for all the help!wink.gif

We only have 28 guests, 6 of which are kids. And the sailing is only for the adults, so 22. Not very many compared to what you're thinking. We used Paradise Catamarans.

Sail, swim, snorkel, parasail, and enjoy the Mayan Riviera with Paradise Catamarans. Our private catamaran charters make every outing a memorable event.

I'm probably the minority, but we're not doing centerpieces. We have four tables and each will have: rose petals, a menu and signature cocktail card, a picture frame honoring one of our grandparents, maracas, and a sprinkle of confetti in our colors (magenta/coral).

Sounds great! So how did you arrange the signature cocktail? Did you give instructions for how to make it and they ask for it at the bar or pre-arrange for some to be made? I am so early in this process...hopefully I'm not getting to far ahead of myself:)

    • 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.
