JerseyKittens Planning Thread - long and lot's of pics!

Recommended Posts

There have been so many times throughout this process when I never thought Iâ€d make it this far.

First, I have to say, I Love BDW.

I donâ€t know what Iâ€d do without this site, the ladies on it and the volumes of advice, experiences, and strength that I have gotten from here.

I think I have gone on The Knot 10 times in the year + of planning, but I am on BDW countless times a day. I feel like everyone on here is my friend…especially my girls on the April 2010 Brides thread.

So, where to start…my FI…we went to high school together and he found me on classmates.com 20 years later. We were inseparable almost immediately and he proposed to me on our 1 month anniversary.

Here is our story:

Picking a resort was the most difficult thing for me to do. After narrowing down an island (Jamaica) it was a BDW Brideâ€s pictures that made me choose mine – I think her name was Caroline – Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton in Lucea.

I don’t have pictures of my reception décor – it will be white candles with pink and orange mats under them.

 

 

My friends and family are coming the 8th, the wedding is the 10th and they are leaving the 12th. FI and I will stay through the 17th as our honeymoon.

 

I hope the next few days fly by - and then our trip goes by very slowly!!!!

    • 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.
