I sent out STDs at the beginning of this month, giving everyone just over a year for a head's up. I want to send out invitations in the fall also. People need time to actually be prepared for something like this. Then in around February I'll send invites to the reception only for those I know won't come to Mexico.

Once you pick a resort it'll make it so much easier and you'll actually start to feel like you're getting married. I feel like you can't really go wrong with resorts these days!! I have heard Turks & Caicos is awesome too!!

 

We're going to wait until summer for our at home reception and then go on our honeymoon after that. I'm a teacher so it works best with my schedule. Lots of my guests got their STDs and loved them!!! YAY exciting!!

Oh ok! That's 2 weeks after our date. So you're the week after Easter and we are the week before Easter. I still don't think the holiday should be effecting us that much. Hopefully the prices will keep dropping!!! Thanks for the update though!!!

Hey everyone, sorry I haven't been here in a while. Since my last visit I have switched resorts - with the help of my Dad. Great right?...maybe...maybe not. Now he has invited EVERYONE!!!!! Now I have no tally on how many people are even possiblly coming with us. So my quick fix is as of now only have the free reception that the resort is offering us. And not make any add ons atleast untill I have a complete tally from the resort on who booked.

 

Do you all think that just doing the cocktail reception is cheesy?

I don't think it is cheesy, especially depending on the time of day. I think if you are only doing a cocktail reception, it would be best to either have it early enough that they can go have dinner afterwards or late enough that guests would have already eaten dinner.

    • 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.

    • 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!
