April 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

Oh and about my sister being an esthetician. I KNOW! It's awesome not having to worry about the beauty stuff... She's got access to this crazy nail polish that hardens your nails and stays on for weeks without chipping! I'm not a big nail polish girl and had no idea this brilliance existed!! I don't have to be careful when were on vacation! Yay!

Ladies - It was my first day back at home and very productive. I picked up a crinoline for $30 which I plan on dying fuchsia. Then while my FI went to a meeting I went to Aldo and found a cute pair of shimmery strappy sandals to wear to wear with my dress. And they were on $14! So hopefully tomorrow I can have someone help me try on my dress with everything and really decide if I will keep it or keep looking. And my reception dress is being shipped!

We are getting married April 9,2011 at the Moon Palace and I just found this posting for April brides! My dress just came in so I'm going in for my first fitting in the next week, hopefully it's how I remember it! I'm trying to figure out about music/dj and flowers...any tips?

Welcome new brides to be! Good luck with all the planning, the ladies on here are so helpful and kind!

Mocha-looking forward to seeing the dress with all the accessories! What a steal! I haven't found shoes that I like yet and it's making me nervous cause the closer to winter the less sandals I see! Gonna try a flea market on the weekend here in brampton cause some of the indian shops carry bright colored sandals so hopefully i score a pair!

i am doing a welcome packet but not really oot bags- going to have welcome letter, postcards, pens, lanyards with waterproof keycard/money holder, schedule of events etc... I am giving out a few things at the ceremony and reception as gifts and that took up most of my budget.

I was just thinking I needed to start on my OOT bags! I have some beach towels that need to be embroidered, but I need to get some more. I got them at the end of last season (in turquoise) for only $2.50 each! I have beach balls I got on sale for 0.50 cents each...guess I need to get on it & find the other stuff I need.

Lisa - I couldn't imagine....  I hope things don't become a mess for us.  Luckily, we haven't really done that much with the wedding coordinator, just talked about flowers and a little about dinner options.

 

To the new ladies - welcome!  This is a great board!!!

 

On the OOT bags...I decided I wanted to try to get a lot of the small stuff during the holiday's where it'd either be on sale, or while I was shopping at different places (out of state) that I don't normally go to.  So far, I've gotten chapstick, first-aid kits, shout wipes, wet wipes, hand santitizer, mini lint rollers.  I've also ordered the photo share cards that will be in the bags.  I still have a bunch of stuff that I need to make decisions on, including the bag itself.

So honest opinions please... I still don't feel like this is my wedding dress, but here it is altered and with a crinoline. I think I want to add another layer of netting to pouf it a little more.

We're at Moon Palace too. I'm making our bouquets from real touch flowers because I don't want to spend so much money on my bouquet and then have to leave it there. I was told that all the function areas have an accessible power supply, so we will be using an iPod dock for the cocktail hour and then ordering the iPod system for the private dinner. How many guests are you expecting and how long are you staying?

    • 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.
