hope you all had a great weekend, I got all my pictures this weekend. OMG the photographer did an amazing job on capurting things I didn't think he could.  he has a picture of a tear going down my husbands cheek. also he stayed for the reception and took pictures of everyone dancing and partying having a good time.  Taking shots (even my mother taking a shot) pretty nuts.

 

I am glad i flew him in cause he was worth every penny.

 


Don't be discouraged. You will find your dress!!!

Thank you all for the wonderful compliments on our pre-travel brochure!!! I used the template from VISTAPRINT and added few pictures of our own. We will probably send it out at the end of August for our October wedding.

 

Has anyone seen the "Wedding in Mexico" on TLC for Trisha from Clean House? She got married at Le Blanc Resort (same as Lindz) and it was beautiful!!! I've been struggling with what to do with my hair... and Trisha has two starfish on her hair instead of flowers. I actually have two blue starfish and didn't know what to do with it... I am now debating between the flowers and starfish...

I too am very interested in who you are using in Houston.  I am getting more and more interested in this BD shoot idea, but not a clue where to find the right photographer!

She also said something about adding boning but I'm really not sure why that is needed

Now that you say all of that I guess it does make sense that the alterations are so expensive. Sounds really detailed and time consuming. Still, I hope you find someone at least a little cheaper.

I am now on board with Carolina too. I spoke to her this morning (I actually never spoke to my other WC) and she seemed like she was genuinely willing to help. She didn't do anything above and beyond yet but I can tell she is very organized and pays attention to detail.

Don't get discouraged. When you find YOUR dress you'll know it and finding the perfect dress sometimes takes a little longer for some of us. I know it did for me and I had to travel 8 hrs to get it.

I'll try to have fun and shots will be a must!! I have an appointment with Christine Tremoulet www.christinetremoulet.com/boudoir. I liked the pics on her site, she is very nice and encouraging and her prices are in my budget. She actually has a special going on right now and I got a 1 hr session with 3 outfits for $250. She also has more expensive packages that are longer sessions, but I wasn't ready to be uncomfortable for 3 hrs!! blush2.gif

There's actually a tread on here with her pics. She used Del Sol, one of the vendors on here. She did a really nice TTD shoot. http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/61972/style-network-tv-host-del-sol-trash-the-dress#post_1374874

Hey gals,

 

I'm probably way behind here and giving you information you already know but I figured out where the reviews go now! 

 

If you are doing a review of a resort/wedding, it looks as though you use Resorts & Villas and then if it's for a vendor, you go there (find the resort/vendor you want to review) and then type away. 

 

:o)

I have so much time before I need to get my dress...I'm not too upset..I didn't even try anything on yesterday...it was more going to look at just one dress because I knew I liked it enough to at least have to see it again...

 

Thanks for the encouragement :)

Just curious...does anyone have Gladys as their WC?  Thats who I was reassigned to after Tiffany left, but I haven't seen anyone else mention her.  She seems fine so far, just wondering if anyone has comments/suggestions.

Okay ladies can I ask about cardboxes?!

 

I have mixed feelings about them in general (ie I think they're a waste of money and a simple basket placed out would suffice just fine).  Also, I'm not keen on trying to bring down extra stuff - so unless the cardbox were to fold down etc. for travel then I'm disinclined.

 

However, what about security (a friend of mine says its something I need to consider)?  Do card boxes actually make it less likely that someone would go by and steal cards?  Couldn't someone just then take the whole box? 

But... it's an outside venue at a resort with a lot of other people who could maybe lurk and grab? 

 

What are people thinking of doing?  What did you married ladies do?  Does the resort have a cardbox you can use?  Did you set up your gift table well "within" the space where your reception was so that it was safer?  Am I totally just over thinking something that's a non-issue?

 

I just worry about it because I imagine that if anyone brings anything gift-wise to the wedding it would likely be cards (hopefully, since I don't really want to lug wedding gifts home from Mexico  haha).

    • 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.
