Hey!! Congrats and Welcome fellow Canadian! We're getting married on April 29, 2010 at GRP!!

I think I have a little info on the photogs if you want to pm your email to me I can send it. BUT, I have tried to reach the photographer and haven't had a response yet - just so you know. We haven't booked any photographer and still aren't sure what we're doing - but send me your email and I'll send you the info I have!!

I hooked up with another bride on the forum to share the costs of bringing a photographer to Mexico. In fact, after we'd booked her, I found yet another bride who will also be using the photgraphers services! Which is great, as it makes it more worth her while to come!

 

We managed to get a killer deal... the photographer is very experienced, and interested in branching into the destination wedding market, so was willing to lower her price for the experience and portfolio material.

 

Ask around, I'm sure you'll find a photographer willing to come just for the cost of the trip. And if you can hook up with another bride, you can offer a bit more, and still save!

We're bringing our own photographer from here....it was one of the few things that I felt I could have control on, since there are several unknowns with a dw. Not to mention I was able to have my engagement pics included for the cost

We're bringing photographers to Mexico with us. They are actually part of the forum TammyB & Faber Photography, so I actually have two photographers and I am so excited they will be joining us. I met them in September and can't be happier with my decision.

Amandseth and anyone getting married soon or been married there already, are you doing dinner at one of the ala cartes? Which one did you choose and what menu? FI and I decided on Las Olas and had the menu set perfectly and Patricia let me know today that the restaurant isn't available for the 6pm seating, we'd have to wait until the 9:30pm seating which is too late since we have my grandparents and stuff with us...So now we're back to square one trying to decide on a restaurant and the set menu for everyone. So I'm just trying to get an idea what anyone else had planned.

Well we are going with the Mexican restaurant, she wasn't very flexible with the menu so I figured the Mexican wound be the most fun and easiest to please everyone. I wanted to do fondue being the restaurant looks very pretty but you must pick only one meathuh.gif Seems a bit crazy, anyway, I'm actually using this dinner the night before my wedding and the day of my wedding we're taking everyone off the resort to a restaurant in Playa Del Carmen. They have been much more accommodating, but yes more money...Either way I'm pretty excited and can't believe how close it is!!!!!

    • 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!
