Meitra,

 

Was the steel band you used the one through the resort?  Kerry had originally told me it was only 1 steel pan player, but your picture showed 2.  I want 2, so I just want to make sure you used the same band through the resort.  Did you have them play at your ceremony?  Or just cocktail hour?  If you had them play at your ceremony, what music did you choose?

 

Sorry for all the questions.  I just really want a steel pan for the ceremony and I want to make sure what I am envisioning in my head is what actually can happen!  Thanks!

Jacki7896,

 Yes, I used the steel band that MDC offered.  I had them play for the ceremony and the cocktail hour.  We were able to tell them what songs to play for everything, except one thing that Kerry didn't tell me about was that they would play a song in the middle of the ceremony while we signed the marriage license.  So I didn't select a song for that and while we were signing our marriage license they played "I never want to dance again" by Wham!  OMG, I was sitting there like "what are they honestly playing right now???" to my hubby as we signed our license...  As for the songs we did pick, here they are:

While Guests are being Seated: Wise Men Say, One Love 

While Parents are being Seated: My Way 

Groom and Best Man entrance:  Iâ€m Yours 

Matron of Honor/ring bearer/flower girls entranceCanon in D 

Brideâ€s entranceHere Comes the Bride 

Bride and Groom recessionalHot Hot Hot

Let me know if you have any other questions!

Hi Lisa,

 

I've been such a slacker!!!!!  I kept pushing everything off until "after the holidays" and now I realize that it's "after the holidays".....time is really flying.  Kerry emailed me today, so I'm getting on the ball with the planning now.  I've been online all night trying to get this stuff together.  I do have a dress appointment on Saturday (still debating on the Running of the Brides in NYC).  Have you gotten your dress?  So much to do, so little time....but it's EXCITING!!!!!

Meitra,..... That is hilarous about the Steel Drum band.  ... I am sure it was mortifying at the moment, but what a good story to tell!

 

Thank you so much for the information!

Hi Robin!

Youâ€re so right…time is flying! I find myself online all the time getting things together so if I can do anything to help send me a shout. When is the running of the Brides? Actually no, donâ€t tell me. I already have my dress. Last thing I need to do is look at others, haha. Hopefully Saturday goes well and you find your dream dress. :)

Hi Robin - I'm getting married at MDV on 7/23/11 and was just in Jamaica for a site visit. Saw MDC and it is beautiful. There was a wedding the weekend we were there (they used Paul from Sound Illusion who we had met earlier in the day at the villas - he's a doll), but I did get a chance to look around and to meet your coordinator, Kerri. If you live in NYC or are coming to NYC for The Running of the Brides, which I think is on 2/18/11, I 100% recommend that you make an appointment at Modern Trousseau. I ended up getting dress there after looking at Saks and a few other places. Modern Trousseau and April, the showroom manager, blew the other places out of the water. All the dresses are custom tailored to your exact measurements, something I found very appealing given that I'm just about making the 5 foot mark. And I really can't say enough nice things about April who gave me such personalized attention and all the time I needed to find "the dress". Nothing at all in it for me, I just saw that you were thinking about going to NY and think it will be completely worth your while to stop by Modern Trousseau if you're going to be in town.

 

Happy planning ladies!

Did you get in touch with Cherry through Kerry? Love the way the orchids looked at the gazebo. Thanks for that tip and the one about a lot of candles. I'll be sure to bring a bunch.

Hi Lisa - I was just in Negril and met with Rosemarie of Floral Fantasies. She'll be doing my wedding and quoted me $3/each for votives for the tables in the event that I do not want to bring my own from  NY. I'm sure you can work out something similar with your florist. I know it's more $$, but it also save some packing room, fear of them breaking, etc. In all likelihood, they will have larger candles as well, but for a greater cost.

That's a great idea, LaraJo. Thanks for sharing :). I'll check in with Kerry to try to figure out how much I'd need. Do you have an idea of how many you may get per table?

    • 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.
