Calling all November 2009 Brides!

Recommended Posts

This is such a fun thread for Nov. brides! I've been wondering where & when I should do a bunch of this wedding stuff! I have no idea when I'm doing the shower or B-party since my MOH is getting married in July and I'm her MOH too. Right now my focus is on her, so I'm guessing my stuff will be in September, etc...

 

We're not doing an AHR because we can't afford renting a place. I'd love to do a bbq, but it will be cold in chicago! So, oh well! So far all I've done are save the dates, my website, picked & booked our place and had a TA arrange travel packages.

 

I'm wondering how everyone is deciding when to order OOT bags & favors for guests. We invited over 200 (my crazy italian mom!) and I'm assuming most of them won't come....but I have NO idea how many favors/OOT bags to budget for.

 

Any suggestions?

LOL I agree we sent out 70 invites (I think) and we have so far 38 ppl booked but we are expecting 45 ppl. This whole thing is hard. I'm emailing the questionable ppl today bc I have order OOT bags and item for 40 ppl. So I may have to make some extra purchases... But I ordered based on who booked by the booking deadline 3.15.09, yet ppl are still saying they wanna go...

Josie - I am in the same boat as you, we have invited 220 people and we know they won't all come but we think between 50 and 80 people will be there, I just wish they would hurry and reply so I can do the OOT bags. I am really excited to do them but like you I do not want to buy way to much stuff. I think i am going to do it at the end of August beginning of September, I think that will be enough time.

We have our website up and running.... a link is provided for our guest to book their rooms... Is anyone having any issues with guests wanting to book their rooms through other sites like Expedia or Travelocity??

some of my guests wanted to but our prices through the TA are less than Expedia or Orbitz so it would be dumb of them to go that route

probably this is a stupid question it is still regarding the TA, my ? is why do i need a TA when we are having our wedding at the Ritz Carlton Kapalua, a set of rooms has been blocked and the plane tickets are roundtrip non stop, so after all this do i still need one?

it depends - you are in the US so you probably are getting the best rates through the Ritz....I got better rates through a TA than from my hotel directly in Puerto Vallarta though - it makes no sense I know...and the hotel would not meet the travel agent rates. I would go ahead and just get a couple TA quotes though - you never know - maybe they could get better rates for your guests, like mine did.

 

As far as flights - we aren't using the TA for flights - everyone is just booking direct through the airlines since they had better rates than the TA.

    • 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!
