Thank you for the price information.  It is so hard to budget for these things without knowing exactly how much they are going to cost.  Really starting to stress about it. I just can't wait to have have everything settled and planned.  Until then, I'm just going to save as much as possible and hope that will be enough.

Hey Ladies,
    So I had just booked my wedding at the Moon Palace for May 29th and asked to hold 30 rooms. I was required to put a deposit down of $3000, so $100/room. Anyways, it wasn't that big of a deal because I was able reserve my room under that deposit and in February when my room block expires, I'll get a refund for any deposit not spent. CynLovesLuis, I think we talked and because your family are Palace members you were able to get around the deposit for your room block. Pretty cruddy they are trying to change rules now.
 
So about outside vendors. I plan on using Zuniga for centerpieces and draping in the ballroom.  But for BM flowers, there is no way I am paying $120/bouquet esp since I have 8 bms. My aunt used to be a florist and a friend of mine does flowers too so we'll probabaly do them ourselves. I am planning on ordering the flowers and have them delivered the day before to the resort. Do you think there will be an issue? I heard brides do it in the past . . .If anyone has any tips to say or do, let me know b/c i am a horrible liar! haha

Terpgurl,

I thought about doing that as well.  I thought about having an outside florist make the BM flowers and I would pick them up myself the day before or even the morning of the wedding.  Some people has suggested using real touch flowers, but I'd rather not.  I just can't see spending $120+ on them.   I think they are incredible overpriced.

I feel the same way. But I try to remind myself the reason why we are having a destination wedding. Hopefully, less work and stress. You only do this once right?! And remember it is going to be beautiful because of the location and sometimes less can be more. :)

Jenn, I have very similar anxieties. I have decidedd to save like 10000 bucks and see where that gets me...in the mean time I'm just making decisions as much as possible and buying things along with the way (got my dress, tiara, party dress)...have made decisions  on (ring pillow, petals to throw, guest book, pen)... etc...and I"m buying them as I have extra money every month.

That is pretty much what I've decided at this point, too.  I figure I can save 10k between now and May.  I will pay off my travel, wedding package, rings, etc......all the essentials.  I'm hoping that I get enough room bookings to earn the unlimited private events.  Right now I think I have a total of 65 room nights, but that is only counting the people I am sure are going.  There are still a whole list of people that I think may come as well.  The recetption budget (dj, center pieces, photography, etc) will come down to what I have left at that point and maybe a little from our income tax return.  I got really lucky, I actually won my dress and all my bridesmaid dresses from a sweepstake in Bridal Guide. I even had a little left over to get a dress for the reception dinner and welcome party.

I have also been to MP- though in June...and it's incrediblky windy- just another thing to think about for beach weddings...

my bridesmaids might be made to wear shower caps until they are inside our venue because of the hair horrors I hear about, LOL

SouthernSweetie, you made a good point about rain...so what I was wondering is that I know you can relocate inside if it does happen to rain...but is that something that needs to be booked with your WC before hand, or do they automatically account for something like that happening? I mean would they book 2 weddings at the same time but in different locations (one on the beach and one in the gazebo?)

    • 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!
