Hey Rachel,

My TA was in touch with Rocio. Apparently second week in May. I'll probably call her personally May 1st since I am banking on January 5th, 2012. I will let you know what I find out!

Welcome Nicole! If you do a search of this thread you will find some girls talking about their experiences with iPods instead of a DJ. If I remember correctly, no one had any major complaints. I'm thinking about going that route too :)

New Bride here!! Getting married December 2011 =)

 

Since we have such a big group going, we have to do a private reception.

 

I was wondering about a DJ. I was looking into prices for DJ BOB and they are very good. But I am wondering if this is some place that we could maybe cut costs and just use my Ipod. But is the one speaker they have loud enough?

Thanks Manda, yes I was thinking of calling there tomorrow too. I am going to go with the Ipod, sounds like it works fine and save some $$$ and have all your own music.

Stephy - how did you plan your budget?  Were there any hidden expenses that you weren't aware of?

Also! 

What times are available for ceremonies?  And do you have to pick the time when you choose the date?  How long did you have for your private reception?  Did you do dancing after dinner - without extra charge?

 

Sorry for all the q's =P

I guess the budget depends on what you really want. 
We didn't have a strict budget.  We just went and looked at what we wanted, compared the options, and choose whatever we saw fit. We did have an initial amount in mind for the overall budget but we went about 30% over... which is alot, but to us doesn't seem like a big deal considering we had the most amazing day of our lives.  It was all worth it.  If you can't afford it, I'd say don't go for it.  We of course didn't go overboard on things, we stuck with what we wanted and could afford.

 

I don't think there were any surprises or hidden expenses... The only thing I was a bit confused with was the wedding package at the Grand Palladium.  Since we had so many guests and wanted a private reception, we had to pay alot of extras (chairs for the ceremony, sparkling wine toast, dinner, etc.)  It seemed like nothing was included in the package.  Remember that it covers only 8 guests!

 

They have plenty of times for the ceremony but you do have to pick a time when you book your date.  They can have up to 3 weddings a day but only one per time (does that make any sense?).  They do this in order to allow you to choose the location you want for the ceremony without having to worry about someone else booking the same location (both gazebos, church, beach, etc).  This you can pick when you get on site.

 

Our reception was at La Laguna (private) from 7PM to 11PM.  We did dinner and some dancing.  At 11PM, the DJ stopped playing but they will stop your music as well if you're using an ipod.  They didn't push us out but guests started leaving soon after the music stopped anyways.  I'm not quite sure how the dancing works at the a-la-carte restaurants, not sure whether you can have music and everything?  Other past brides could probably answer this one...

    • 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.
