I would get a DJ.. i am inviting about 100 ppl to my wedding knowing most will not come but i think a DJ is good anyway because the peopl who do come are expecting to be dancing and partying ( i assume) im going with a DJ no matter what.. so thats my advice ;)

From my understanding if u are having it outside on the pool deck u have to do a buffet. By pool deck do u mean the deck infront of the main pool or jsut the grounds around the pool? Either way my coordinator told me it is buffet only! Im going with the deck becasue I dont mind the buffet.. i think its more relaxed and lets people choose when they want to eat

Maybe some of you can help me out with this because i have no idea what Gina is saying in her email to me because of her broken english! For selecting the menu she emailed me the silver and gold plates to choose from, so can i pick any soup and any salad from both lists? Also i know we have to tell her what entree each guests wants can they choose from all 8? or do i pick 2 different ones and they can only choose from the 2 i select? ahhhh im probably not explaining this correctly hopefully someone understands me and can help me out! I wish we could just do a buffet it would be way easier, but she told us u have to have at least 30 people to do that, and we only have 18. Thanks ladies!

I had the same question too.

I chose the Silver menu.  Then I asked Evangelina if we could pick and chose certain items from option 1 and option 2 (basically, if we could mix and match)...she said yes so we basically designed our menu from all the Silver options listed.  I also asked if we (my fiance and I) were to choose 2 entrees and have our guests order at the reception. She told us we were to pick one, which seems weird to me. We chose a fish as our main entree and my fiance suggested that we put a "nutritinal disclaimer" on our wedding site, letting our guests know that if they have allergies to fish or anything, they need to tell us.

If anyone else has any insight, i'd reallyl ike to hear what your menu plans are!

Thanks!

Kate

I have an aversion to mushrooms so we chose off the gold menu and mixed and matched.  I asked if it was allowed and Yamina said yes.  I ordered menu cards and everything off etsy so I hope that she doesn't go back on her word!

I divided up the flowers between my bridesmaids and they carried theirs on in a box in their luggage - My now husband carried mine on in his carry on and all the bouts and moms wrist corsages fit in a tiny box that I was able to stick in my suite case - they fluffed up perfect at the hotel with a little tweeking.  Don't stress to much over it as long as you have a little protection you are good to go.

    • 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.

    • 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!
