Thats a good idea, thanks!! Your wedding is just around the corner. I can't believe it is almost May. How are the final plans coming along?


~ Question about registering... When did or will you register? Our wedding is just 8 months away, and with my internships I am guessing showers will not be until late October or November-ish. Just wondering how far in advance did you all register?

About registry, I initially didn't want to register anywhere esp since ppl are flying all the way to MX. But my inlaws insisted that I register on one as many of them will not be able to make it so I registered in honeymoonwishes.com

 

The Fiance and I bought a place together in 2007 so we basically have all household stuff so we thought the honeymoon registry was the best option for us. We plan to go to Italy in Oct for two weeks.

 

We are not even publicizing the registry, the registry info only shows in our website and I have specifically asked ppl who are attending not to give us a gift as their presence will be gift enough. with that being said, ppl still found out abt it and last few weeks we have been getting quite a few things from the registry.

 

Sammysgirls - good advice on the spa thing, I just booked all ours today.

We hadn't planned on registering, mostly since we plan on moving back to Denver soon, and we have no space right now, but people have asked so we're registering for honeymoon $$. I think we're using honeyfund.com. We haven't done it yet though- so we probably should get on it!

 

**so funny Samira- I was typing this the same time as you! I will check out your site too, since we haven't decided yet. Any reason that you chose them? And we too, are going to Italy for ours! We're waiting a bit, because of the move. I can't wait to hear about your trip!!

Wedding plans are coming along okay, just wrapping up last minute details and getting things in order for our AHR which is June 5th. We've just had a lot of really stressful family drama surrounding the wedding in the past week so I am just so worn out mentally and emotionally!

Sorry for all the stress Sammysgirl...I know it's probably hard but try to enjoy this as much as you can!

 

Question for those of you who had your legal ceremony before RPRM- what should the bride wear to such an event? We are having ours very small at the church with only a few people (parents basically) and then we're going to a nice dinner afterwards. Thoughts?

Thanks for the advice girls! Family is already asking about showers and registry even though I tell them their gift is just celebrating with us; they don't listen. I definitely agree about not posting it anywhere, so those who are not insisting on buying a gift, might actually just do what we say and not get anything :).

 

vlvetter7- Well, we are doing ours at the courthouse before hand and very informal so I was thinking even just jeans and a sweater (I want this just to be the paperwork before hand and not seem real at all)... But for a church wedding, I'd same maybe find just a cute dress (even white) that you might where to like your rehearsal dinner?? Just so it doesn't feel as bridal as your wedding dress but a little wedding feel to it.

Jen-We registered sometime in Feb at Crate and Barrell and still have to register somewhere else b/c I barely have anything on there. I like most of you didn't want/need to register but everyone said I should or I'd get things I didn't want. No one knows we are registered yet so you could do it now before you leave for you internship and that way it is done.

 

Sammysgirl-I'm so sorry you are stressed out and can't enjoy this. It really can dampen the whole experience!

 

vlvetter-I think you can wear whatever you want. I've seen other pictures of girls that wore a cute dress or nice pants and top. I think it depends on how you want to feel on that day.

Jannae - I went with honeymoonwishes becuase the reviews were good there was a site which compared honeymoon site and fees etc, and honeymoonwishes seemed like the best deal. Plus it was very easy to set up literally took 30 mins to set up the registry. We leave for Italy Oct 16th and I will def share details. just incase if u want to check out my registry for ideas below find the link.

    • 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.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
