November 2011 Brides (or Grooms)

Recommended Posts

Okay, I searched around and didn't see one of these...apologies if I missed one. I thought it would be great to have a thread for those planning on getting married in Nov. 2011.

 

So post your dates and locations and anything else! I'm sure there will be more November 2011 people in a few months, but there must be a few of us on here now!

We will get married on November 11, 2011, but we're still in the process of choosing a resort. We're probably inviting around 80-90 people with no idea of how many are coming. After lots of planning complications, we decided to fly in our own rabbi and priest, so we can have a joint ceremony.

 

Unlike most folks, we'd rather do an indoor (or at least covered, off the beach) ceremony and reception. We figure we'll get plenty of gorgeous beach time during the rest of our stay in Mexico. =)

 

I mentioned this on in the newbie area, but the resorts we're considering are:

 

Gran Caribe Real

Sandos Playacar/Caracol Eco Resort/Riviera Beach

Barcelo Maya Beach/Costa Cancun/Tucancun Beach

Dreams Cancun/Riviera Cancun/Tulum/Puerto Aventuras

 

If anyone has thoughts on these, let me know!

We are date twins!

We decided on Iberostar because it was (a) all-inclusive (B) inexpensive and © My cousin was married there a couple years ago and everyone loved it. I have a lot of family between the US, England and Ireland, so I have people flying in from all over. It was important it was inexpensive and all-inclusive for this reason, because there are people traveling far for the wedding and we wanted to make it as affordable as possible. There are also a lot of children in my family, and it was important that they can come as well, and the Iberostar is family friendly, without being overun by children.

What resorts are you looking at?

Caitlin, I keep hearing great things about Iberostar. I'm sure you'll have a great time there!

 

We are very undecided about resorts right now. We really like Barcelo Maya Beach, Sandos Playacar, and Gran Caribe Real, but it's just all so much info to sort through! I can't wait til we get something booked...well, one of these days.

 

I'm hoping that after booking, we can take a bit of a wedding planning breather (except I won't stop looking at wedding dresses until the wedding day itself, probably)...

We are super undecided about wedding resorts too! I feel like all I do is spend hours trying to sort out the details!!! We are also considering Sandos Playcar, but I love the Grand Palladium and Gran Bahia. So we will see.

And I keep trying to not look at wedding dresses but my internetkeeps wandering so those sites. I completely understand!!

    • 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!
