I'm on a tight budget and definitely want to cut costs where ever I can.

Thanks,

I'm renting the whole place because I'm havingabout 60 people. You should definitely ask Mayte if people will be eating upstairs because you never know!

I'm just doing the reception there too. We have about 46 or so guests and I'm only renting the downstairs area. From what I understand the upstairs will be open to other guests dining but that there are stairs that lead directly from outside to upstairs so we won't have to see any of the other guests. I'm ok with that. I'm on a tight budget and there only 46 of us. I think it will be ok.

Natalie, it really depends on your resort. I priced both out and Jellyfish will work out to be a bit cheaper and include much more. I love the costumer service I have been receiving from them. One of the main reasons why I decided to go with Jellyfish.

I just got married (last week) and had my reception at JellyFish. I will post a more detailed review shortly. It worked out slightly cheaper for me to do the reception at JF compared to the resort and I am SO HAPPY I did. It was amazing. We were able to stay as long as we wanted compared to the resort reception which would only have been for three hours. The food was delicious, the setting and decor magnificent, and the service incredible. I couldn't be happier with my experience with them. One of the best decisions I made.

I did the same. 44 guests, rented the downstairs, people were dining upstairs and didn't even notice them. On the one occasion a nosy dinner guest came to stand by the bar and check out what was happening, the JF staff politely directed him back upstairs. I have absolutely no regrets about doing my reception there.

Congrats Meli! I'm so glad everything went well for you. I look forward to your review and pictures. Did you go with the open bar? If so, how long did you have it for? I haven't decided when I want the reception to end.

Thanks MBBRide. I did go with the open bar. I did a "Dinner Open Bar" it's not on the menu online but they offer it. It cost $8 per person as long as dinner last (it's not per hour so we tried to do as much as possible during dinner like the toasts, and cake cutting etc. to take advantage of it). THe dinner open bar includes red and white wine, beer, water, soft drinks and juice.

I also orded 6 bottles of champagne at $30 a bottle for the toast and cake cutting (looking back not sure how necessary that was). I then did two hours of the local open bar at $10 per hour per person. That was for after dinner during the dancing portion. After that I asked that it become a cash bar. I told JellyFish to let me know 30 min before the open bar was finished and I then I made an announcement to my guests. It worked out well.

Also, when you arrive, JellyFish has complimentary cocktails ready for all the guests. During the pre-meeting you get to taste different drinks and choose which ones you want offered. We went with Mojitos and a fruity cocktail (can't remember the name now). You also get to the taste the menu and make sure you like what you selected.

    • 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.
