Hello ladies!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!!


Love this forum! Getting married April 2010 most likely in Punta Cana! At this point choosing between a couple of resorts: mainly Oceans, Majestic Colonial and Bahia Principe. All have very different price ranges!


My FI and I are both law schools and all of our friends are still in school also. Anyone in the same situation and wondering what is the max amount we can ask of our friends for this trip? It seems that to get something great we always end up in the 1700's $.


Thanks Ladies!smile03.gif

Congratulations! I am in the same position with being in school, we are getting married the month after I finish my degree...so I can understand the worry about pricing. I would say 1700 is reasonable to ask friends and family to spend if you give them sufficient time to save. Good luck on all the planning! :)

Congrats and welcome to the forum. I'm getting married in Mexico and our price for our guests is just over $1700 so I think its reasonable. The way I looked at it and from the opinions of some of my guests I spoke to, most preferred to pay a few hundred more and not have to worry about the service not being to their standard. But everyone's different - so remember that you will NEVER please everyone. Good luck and happy planning!

    • 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.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
