For the invites I just put that our wedding was taking place at the hotel and then I am surprising the majority of my guests once they arrive that it is off-site.  I thought it would be nice to do it that way - I really don't think you have to specify that it is at Jellyfish in your invitation because once ppl accept your invite they are going to be in the DR with you no matter what so they won't mind where the wedding is being held and I am sure they would love to be surprised and find out it is off-site.

 

I am letting my group pick their meals off the menu - I gauged it and I am pretty sure I will save money doing this as opposed to having a fixed menu.

I did get an email back from Mayte last night and she was fine with us hosting our ceremony and a cocktail hour only.

This is perfect for us as we wanted to use La Barcaza for our reception. Now just waiting to get confirmation on our date from

Jellyfish, La Barcaza, and Pastor York. :)

Hey Digado,

 

I'm so happy to finally meet a bride who is having a legal wedding too! From what I've learned so far, Mayte is the one who will contact the judge for you to confirm a date and time. The judge usually performs weddings @ 4PM. When is your wedding date? We are getting married on NOV 27 @ 4PM.

 

Have you figured out how you will translate all your documents and who you will use to translate them? I've heard of a company on this website called WEDO or something like that, they are based out of Toronto, Ontario. I think I may use them, not sure yet. I've love to hear how you plan on doing this? =)

Hey Jess,

 

I'm kind of on the fence too about asking ppl what they plan on eating. On our wedding website, we have the option of including the meal choices when our guests RSVP and I'm thinking I might use it only because I think it would make it easier on the staff at the JF if they knew in advance how many items of each entree they will need to prepare. As for wording, maybe you could incorporate in your invitation both locations by saying "accomodations will take place at the Majestic Elegance and ceremony and reception will take place at the JF restaurant". I'm sure there is a more formal way of saying this (lol) but this should at least make it clear to your guests on where your staying and where the wedding will take place.

How are you planning on wording your invitations? I'm trying to figure out how to incorporate staying at the Majestic Elegance and our Ceremony & Reception at the Jellyfish without adding so many words.  Also.. are you guys asking what they're planning on eating in the response cards or are you letting them order at the reception?  Any past brides any info would be great :)

Hi guys. As a past JF bride, I just want to let you know that Mayte does not need to know how many people are eating what. I had 85 people and she just took their orders at the reception. I never asked my guests what they wanted beforehand. Hope that helps!

That is good to know! And one less thing to worry about. =)

Hey girls - any past JF brides - quick question - did you tip? If so did you tip pastor york, dj mania, mayte, photographer, videographer - assuming you had all those services and how much?

 

Thanks,

Hi Mel,

 

I know someone who got legally married at the Jellyfish and didn't know until she got there that there was no translator provided for the ceremony. They found a random person on the beach who happened to speak both English and Spanish to translate the ceremony. I would confirm that detail with Mayte!

 

We are doing a legal ceremony at the Majestic Elegance because we qualify for the free package and then heading over to the Jellyfish for the reception.

 

Good luck with everything! :-)

Have any of you that are getting married at the JF in November heard back from Mayte yet regarding a confirmed time for the legal judge?  I have been waiting for over a month to hear back, and I'm starting to get a bit nervous.

    • 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!
