We did... and they acted like they gave us one, but when we got to the room, it was the room we booked (Jr. Suite with Courtyard view). At the end of the day we didn't really care... but it would have been nice as some of our guests got upgrades when they arrived (by paying a bit extra). I wish we would have offered to pay more at check in.

Hi Paige,

 

We actually arranged it about two days before with the hotel. They gave us a taxi service number and we arranged for 5 vans to come pick up and bring back our guests. It cost us $300- but it was nice to know that our guests were going to be taken care of.

 

Oh! One other thing... Rob and I did do welcome bags for all our guests, but we only brought the bags, travel mugs, and some antibacterial soap (that we got really cheap from bath and body works). The rest we bought at the Walmart in town. We ended up getting 2 bottles of water, pringles, assortments of candy, sun chips, etc. for each bag and walked out of Walmart spending $97! It was such a cheaper option that shipping or even buying all that stuff in the US.

So I'm starting to freak out a little bit because we are getting SO close!!!!! I feel like there are things I need to do that I am forgetting about because I did so much so early so I wouldn't be stressed out right now, but now I'm convincing myself that I've left something out.

 

On a good note I randomly decided to get S's ring engraved today and I had it engraved with "All my love, All my life"...it came out great!

    • 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.
