Yes I used the sound system. It was nice to hear my entrance music way before the guests saw me. It also helped hear the officiant on such a windy day and with the sounds of people around. I would definatly recommend it. All the ceremonies that I saw at the Gazebo had the sound system I'm not sure if all the beach ones had a sound system though

 Thank you for the feedback. My ceremony is at the beach. My fiance is refusing to say his vows with a microphone. I get were he is coming from, but I am worry my guestt won't hear at thing.

What vendor fee are they charging you to bring in Del Sol. They asked me to pay $250 to bring Victor Herrera, which I find outrageous. I just want to make sure they are being consistence with their fees.

 Lorena the WC corrected herself and the fee for outside photographer is $150. Way more reasonable.

For those that have been to the resort:

 

After our rehersal dinner, we want all of our guests to gather at one of the bars for a "Meet & Greet". Any suggestions on what bar would be good for about 30-34 people? I was going to do the Lobby Bar, but I figureed I would ask here for some insight.

 

Thanks!

My personal opinion is that you made the right choice... i feel like I would rather cut back on other things and make sure the music is great if i had to choose. I think people will be more worried about having fun than other little details.. and good music can really make the party. I also am curious about them announcing the wedding party and all of that because thats also what i want!! Anyone who is trying to decide btwn the DJ or no DJ, GET THE DJ... i also i remember hearing that you can email him way in advance and let him know your style of music and even give him a play list. if anyone has had the dj and had their wedding party announced.. let us know ;)

We don't really have room in our budget to be making such changes, but all in all I feel like it will save us the piece of mind. I won't have to prepare playlists and instruct someone how and when to cue them up.

 

For anyone who has used the resort DJs, do they have microphones? Will they announce your wedding party? announce the dances? announce cake cutting? Will they cater to your style of music? Are they pretty flexible? Do I just provide them with a timeline of events throughout the recption with approximate times?

Thank you for clarifying... I haven't contacted my WC yet regarding Del Sol. I will let you know if I am given a different quote.

My groom is wearing nice linen khakis and a white button down with rolled up sleeves.  The guys are wearing the same khakis but with an aqua button down.  Flip flops, too.  We're pretty casual.

    • 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!
