amyh's planning galore!

Recommended Posts

Finally, my turn has come! I joined the forum in Oct. 2006 (the same time as Ann and Christine, who both have beautiful little girls!) and I have no idea if it wasnâ€t for the forum, I think I wouldâ€ve cancelled my DW upon planning!

 

 

I will try to update this thread before I leave, but I am running out of time and I am not sure if I will have time to post those last minute details.

 

Again forgive me for the terrible camera phone pics. Hans and I are planning to purchase a camera tomorrow!

 

Here goes!

We also purchased a tie and shirt from Macyâ€s. Suit is from Downtown L.A.

 

Again, I donâ€t have a pick of the entire Bestmen attire, but this is the tie they will be wearing (from Macyâ€s) (they will change into guayaveras and throw on flip flops for the reception. I also purchased fedora type hats for them to stand out)

My MOHs got their dresses made and I have only had a chance to see three and only have this one pic. They are all different, but they all have the same bottom portion.

The MOHâ€s will hold one single green anthurium

My FG dresses were also made. I am in love with them! The top is made from Alecon lace (nicer than mine) which was marked $45 per yard! I had to purchase 4.5, but the man was confused and charged me $45 for all of it plus a %10 discount for being “niceâ€. I love how it sort of mimics the top of my dress.

    • 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.
