I feel productive

Recommended Posts

Ok...so it seems that FI and I have worked through our issues, for the time being at least :) There's a little more that went on after my thread about it, but we were honest with each other and we seem to have moved on. :)

 

With 6 months left I feel like it's "crunch" time :) We've alredy been engaged a year and a half LOL

 

This past weekend I went and ordered our invitations (we decided on them in Feb) and confirmed the ring FI wants. He also brought up the issue of what the guys are going to wear and I think we figured it out :) I also booked our airfair for the wedding.

 

Yesterday was my birthday :) We had planned to go to the beach, but it was crummy here in the morning. He asked what I wanted to do so I asked him if he'd really do ANYTHING I wanted LOL he said yes...so we went into Manhattan and went back to the jewler where he got my e-ring...well, they weren't in so we wandered around and spoke to a couple of different jewlers. We found one that we really liked and he does custome work and had some suggestions about a wedding band to fit my e-ring. And we liked his prices :) I am goign to go back in a week or two and get the ball rolling on that one.

 

Afterwards we wandered around China Town and Little Italy, had coffee and Gellato and then back to China Town. I can't tell you how many of those shops we went into, but I finally found the perfect Pashima's for my BM's. Their dresses are aqua and light ivory...so the pashima's are solid ivory but have a circular design on them.

 

I just emailed a company about AB Swarovski starfish pendents that I am going to use to make the BM's necklaces and earings and I ordered my tote bags from www.cheaptotes.com...FYI - the natural canvas is on sale for $.99 and cupon code "cheaptotes" saves you 10% I think ($.01 per bag).

 

Don't worry ladies, I'm taking pictures of everything and posting them here and there (I already posted my invitations). I plan to do a full and complete and LONG planning thread!!!!!

I can't totally see why you feel accomplished. I think it's great that you two are addressing your issues pre-wedding and it is also so nice to cross things off of your huge wedding to-do list. Way to go, girl!

Hey Dez!

I bought a swarovski starfish pendant off of ebay before my wedding last year, you might want to check there to compare prices too, I'm not sure how much they are from the company you contacted.

Good luck!

I actually did look on ebay but I get confused/overwhelmed there sometimes :)

 

I got them for $9.16 each. I bought them in "bulk" meaning I needed more than 6. But they had them in a group of 6 for 54.95 and individually for $10.50...I emailed asking if I got 8, would I have to pay the $10.50 for the 2 extra...she said she'd adjust it for me :)

 

I'm BIG on customer serview and I literally emailed them at around 6:30 this morning and was emailed back at 8:30 (probably as soon as she got in).

 

Once I get them in, I'll write a review of them, so far, this company is getting an A+ from me :)

 

My BM gifts are almost done!! Whoo hooO!!!

Wow Dez, you are on the ball! I'd love to see the pendants and pashminas.

 

I was thinking of buying our moms some pashminas.

 

Good for you!

    • 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!
