Hi Ladies,

 

I just wanted to share some info. about the photographer that I am using for my big day. Her name is Misha Earle and she has been very accomadating with everything. We are spending 2500.00 total but she has other packages available and she will work with you on pricing. We are getting 10 hours of shooting time and the time can be split into 2 days which we are doing. We are doing a trash the dress session the next day, but we are not sure what location we are going to use. The package also includes a DVD slide show with all your images set to the music of your choice. If you want to contact her, her email address is mishaearle@gmail.com. Again, she has been very helpful with everything and she responds very quickly to emails. Hope this helps anyone who is still looking for a photographer. You can also look at her website mishaearlephotography.com!

I have a question about the decorations.

 

Does it matter what package you pick to get the chair covers? And its free? Seems weird they'd give them for free, but on the forms I was sent from the WC, it showed a charge schedule for them.....

 

I won't be able to afford $2500 on a photographer, so I'm going to have to go wit hthe resort one, and one of my guests is a photographer so I"m hoping she'll just take really nice pictures, hahaha, I know it sounds cheap but I can't see any way of fitting that huge of a number into the budget.....

So I've just returned from our wedding at GBP and this place is absolutely amazing! I am so sad that it's over because I would go back and do it again in a heartbeat! Beverly, the WC, is amazing and an absolute sweetheart! She took care of everything for us! The day couldn't have been more perfect and it's all thanks to her! We had a beautiful, sunny day and she was there with us every step of the way. We had our supper at the Grill Restaurant & the food was delicious! Everyone loved it! We also decided on the reception in the Gazebo where we got married and I would highly recommend that! It is definitely worth it! We brought all of our own music and had the place rockin'! All of our guests said it was the best wedding they have ever attended. I will recommend bringing your own photographer if possible. We didn't do that but luckily we had a few friends with professional cameras. I would have been rather upset if we didn't as the resort photographer didn't show up until the ceremony was over and then he only spent maybe a half hour with us! Luckily we also had a friend with a video camera who captured all our special moments. This resort is absolutely beautiful & spotless! Our room was overlooking the pool & the ocean as were most of our wedding guests' rooms. We couldn't have gotten better treatment! All in all, I would recommend this resort to anyone who is looking for a place to get married! I was so sad to leave it & cannot wait to return for our anniversary. Good Luck to all you future GBP brides! You are in for a treat!

Hey Sunchick,

 

Did you have a bar at the beach gazebo for the reception?? I am just wondering b/c we havent decided what to do yet, and I'm trying to way the pros and cons....basically $ vs. convenience....was the resort bar close enough to the gazebo that my guest could walk to it and I would not have to hire a bartender to be stationed at the gazebo??

 

Thanks!!

    • 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.
