They also have a thing where they will drop you off on your own private island for a day with a picnic which I think would be awesome. I am so stoked to have a butler!!!

 

Um, FABULOUS!!  Great idea!  Everyone needs a Pool Boy;)  Just take your sunscreen for that private island!  Had a friend who did this with her hubby on their honeymoon, they forgot their sunscreen, and 6 hours later, he had blisters on his shaved head.  Not hot for pics.  Ouch.

Hi!  I'm pretty much an April bride stalker.  I was in your shoes 3 years ago so I always stalk the April brides, and it just so happens that I'm photographing two of you... so that means I'm a super stalker!  Sorry about that... but hi, I'm Trisha!

 

I just wanted to chime in on the Midol thing... yes... it works.  We used it for my sister's wedding.  If you read back way to 2007 when I joined you can probably find posts from me about it actually!  But make sure you only take ONE!  You're not supposed to mix them with alcohol, so take one while you're getting ready and you'll be fine by cocktail hour.

 

As for green flowers, my bouquets has green hydrangea in them and they were beautiful.  The wedding coordinator said the same thing to me... white is hard to come by, green is super cheap and easy to get.  Just remember that hydrangea wilt VERY quickly, so in a bouquet where they don't have a constant source of water that is something to think about.

Oh Meggers!!

 

What a fabulous present from your mom!!  One of my friends just spent her honeymoon there and LOVED it!!  I am partial to St. Lucia since we are getting married there, but we'll be at the Southern part of the island.  So ecstatic for you!!

Welcome Trisha:)  I've seen some of your work and you take great pics!  Great advice about the hydrangea wilting....I hadn't even thought of that.  Your post about not mixing the Midol and alcohol reminded me of that scene from Sixteen Candles when the bride takes a muscle relaxant, stumbles down the aisle, pets a guest's hat, etc.  LOL!!

    • 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.
