Wow! I'd love to see any pictures that you have from your site visit to GP! Also, which area did you feel was most central? I'm wanting my guests to have a good location between the beach, pools and food. Did you get to meet with Rocio while you were there, or talk to anyone about wedding related things? I'd love to hear ANYTHING you noticed during your visit! If you'd rather email me, you can reach me at coppergoddess13 at gmail dot com. Thanks so much!

Hi ladies, nice to hear from more GP brides! I am waiting for Rocio to fax me the signed wedding contract, so then I will be set for the resort reservations. We did a block of rooms through Olga and I wrote up a contract for that. We got a really great rate of $85 pp/pn, but we have to pay the hotel everything directly, meaning guests cannot call in and pay with their own cc to get this rate. It is a group rate block, so it is a little inconvenient making people send us a check for their rooms, but we just did it mostly for immediate family and bridal party to ensure we got them an affordable rate. Most of the advertised rates for this hotel are more around $150 pp/pn. We are having our guests stay at the Colonial, I just thought it was best as it is most central to the resort. Our ceremony is on Friday, June 5, 2009 at 5:00pm on the Kantenah beach. Private Reception at La Laguna from 7pm-11pm. We have to pay $45-55 per person to have the private reception, but preferred it to the non-private dinners at the a la cartes. Also, we have to choose one menu item for everyone to have, but there is one that has salmon and steak, so we figure there should be something for everyone. Also, if you are thinking about getting married there, try to make sure you get the 2008 rates for the ceremonies, as the 2009 rates are much more expensive. I think if you talk to Rocio about it and reserve your date now, you can get it. I think 2009 is like $500-1000 more, depending on the package you choose. Also, we are brining our own officiant, one of our good friends does it, so she is taking $250 off our package since we won't need the minister included. So, it has been a really fun experience planning it at the GP, and we have been able to make things happen within our budget. Since we are paying for our wedding on our own, we really don't want to bust the budget. Let me know if you have any q's, pm me or feel free to email me at hannaono@gmail.com

hanna- wow, it sounds like you are on top of things! I was wondering- how did you approach Rocio about decrease of your package due to bringing your own officiant? When I mentioned taking out the cost of flowers b/c I wanted to bring my own fake flowers, she actually seemed very hostile about it, which I was not expecting- it was just a simple question! Any suggestions on how to approach such things would be appreciated!

    • 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!
