Congrats Jessica and glad to hear your thoughts! :)... I agree with Jannae though, lets see some pics :)

 

Dana- I am not sure either... Now that you mention it, it sounds very similar to our situation. So once we start looking more, I will let you know if we find any specific good stores.

Dana, I took my mother in law shopping yesterday. we went to macys, she is a size 22 and we found lots of stuff. But looks like you didn't have much luck there.

 

Have u tried JJill? but i think anything over a size 18 you will need to order online.

I got my TTD proof pics today- I got my 2nd dress choice made as a knockoff for the TTD- not AT ALL perfect- but I emailed gianini with my concerns. But as FI said, it's something that I will literally wear for an hour- it's fine!

Jannae-There isn't Wifi in the rooms only in the lobby!

 

Samira-Thanks, maybe I'll try another Macy's to see if they have a better selection. We walked by a JJill, but I had never been in one and didn't want to drag her in there if they didn't have women's sizes. I'll check online!

 

Jen-Thanks, let me know if you find anything good.

Jannae I loove that TTD dress- soo perfect! It makes me want to find one- I had thought about just wearing my actual dress but I do have some reservations about ruining it.

Jessica That restaurant sounds great- would it be able to accommodate 60 ppl on the roof and would you mind sharing how much I could expect to pay?

Also, is the going rate for Mariachi band around $570- I think thats what Riu wedding website says- or is this up for negotiation at all?

and does anyone have a recommendation bt the Mariachi band or Mexican Trio for a cocktail hour?

Thanks for the info Dana! Poor FI is sad. I keep telling him that we’ll rarely be in the room- but I think he gets self imposed anxiety when he’s without internet!!

 

Thanks Paige! Yeah, I decided to get a second dress for TTD because I want to try and sell my dress when we get back for our honeymoon fund. I have heard over and over that the session actually makes your dress cleaner, etc- but mine has a ton of beading and lace that I feel is very delicate- I didn’t want to risk it! It was also a way for me to have my cake and eat it too by getting both dresses that I loved (in a way).

samira26... I was looking at high heels to begin with but as im going barefoot for the beach ceremony, this would cause problems with dress length, it would be too long for ceremony or too short for reception etc, so i needed a happy medium.... I think these will be perfect :-)

 

Glad you like

    • 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.
