We are doing the ceremony at 4:30, the sun should be setting at 7:04. I want a good amount of time for pictures before the sunset as most likely things will run a little late.

We're arriving on the 10th so Lizzy, I would love to meet you then!

 

Next question ladies ... have you decided on the reception details? I'm thinking Seaside Grill with the Silver package, which (when you add in gratuities, etc.) comes to about $39 US per person.

 

It kinda sucks to pay for food when there will be free food all around us. (for 20 guests, that's 800$).

 

What are you ladies doing?

I have already asked about that, after looking at wedding photos and seeing the bands on peoples arms....... No way :-) and apparently because there is not another resort within walking distance we do not need to wear arm bands.

 

I am just havin my reception meal in the seaside grill, my h2b refuses to pay for food when we have paid to stay at an all inclusive resort. I would have argued this until I saw the menu and we have some real fussy eaters with us who would not like anything on the silver meal list. At least this way we will have money to spend on something else and everyone can order the food they like, so I'm happy.

 

Our photographer (hdc) has said that we will have to pay for a day pass for him, does anyone know how much this is?

 

Also I'm now torn between getting married in the gazebo and on the beach. What scares me is last year we were in Punta Cana and saw a few weddings, some people have no respect and at one wedding in particular there were people in bikinis ( one one woman without a top) standing at the gazebo watching and taking photos!!!! They even managed to get themselves into some of the photos!! Does anyone know is the beach location private or beside the sunbathershuh.gif

Brilliant, we'll arrange to meet and I can let you see pics and any insight I've gained, I'll be married by then :-)

We have asked Tiara and its 50 dollars per person to get them in to do the photos and the video. Now I don't think thats the cost of a full day pass but if they are only there for 3-4 hrs maybe theres a cheaper half day pass or something.

I am thinking of doing the seaside grill as well. If you don't rent out the whole place, I think there might be a charge of $15 per head if you have over x amount of ppl. I believe it is to take care of bring out everyone's food at the same time.

I wouldn't mind paying 15 instead of 30 or 40. My fiance hates the silver package as well and actually wanted to do a buffet insteadWill they still allow you to decorate your area how you want (i.e. like the photos Tiera has sent with table cloths, and a couple of flowers at each table)?

Lizzy, meeting you is going to make me life so much easier. I will have to get you a "post-wedding" drink ... or 2.

    • 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.
