Is this "appropriate"?

Recommended Posts

Ok ladies~

I just had a "light-bulb moment" and wanted to get your honest opinions.

We are getting married in January 2009 in Mexico, and WERE going to do an AHR in Colorado when we return. Obviously it's going to be friken cold, so it would have to be completely inside. The idea I just had was to do an engagement/pre-wedding AHR this summer in late August. This way we can do a nice outside BBQ at my parents house and we'll have A LOT MORE ROOM. The big BUT is: Does this seem tacky or wrong to anyone to do it before hand? If I'm gonna do this I need to get on the stick like TODAY. What do you think?? :)

I agree with Kat...maybe have an engagement party or a coed bridal shower during the summer and invite everyone who won't be able to your wedding ...I think a cozy winter AHR with a blazing fire and snow outside is very romantic...

Well, the point of this is to Eliminate an AHR in January. The roads here will most likely be a snow-packed mess. We definetely don't want to do that anymore. I think we'll just stick to a party this summer with all our friends and not label it anything that way it will be cool. :) Thanks:)

i'd have an engagement party or just a bbq for no reason. i think a pre-nuptual ahr is odd....that being said, we were supposed to go to a pre-wedding ahr today. it was for the ppl who couldn't make it out to cali, but in actuality, the bride and groom uninvited 1/2 of the wedding guests (they said it was out of hand), so they were serving hot dogs and hamburgers to get gifts.

WOW nothing like being blunt about it lol.

I think you should just have a party like you said. Just make it a wedding sendoff!!!

Also, the LAST reason I am doing this is for gifts. In fact, we aren't even registered anywhere because we already have everything we need. It's very important to us to have our friends involved in someway. We chose to have a very small wedding, and only invited family and a few close friends. I think a "send of party" sounds great. Thanks for the honesty ladies it helps a lot!!! wink.gif

Kat, said exactly what I was going to say... engagement party. We had ours 5 months before the wedding.

    • 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!
