Question about wedding packages:

 

I'm finding their packages have a lot of things I don't care for.  FH and I are traveling with my step daughter, so we don't need rose petals in our room, an upgrade, champagne and fruit, or breakfast in bed the next morning.  Have any of you been able to substitute some of the items in the package?  Or was it an option to have a completely a la carte wedding and only pick the services you need?

 

This leads to my next question - in this case do you need to pay for the wedding coordinator, and decorations for the ceremony?

 

Thanks

You dont have to pay for the wedding coordinator, the coordinator par tof the deal as they work for the resort directly.  If you only want specific things maybe you can request a quote for only the services that you want.  Lastly yes you do have to pay for the wedding decorations.

I was able to sub a few things in my package, through my WC. Just let them know what you want and don't want and they can make your package as unique as you need it.  You can do what I did -- complimentary (I stayed more than 7 nights) package then added a la carte items. They will send you a list of items that they offer. If it's not listed, just let them know what you are looking for, and they can tell if they can get it for you  or not.  Hope this helps a little!

My daughter is planning her wedding in July 2012.  We are in Texas but her fiance is from the UK.  Any suggestions for travel sites for his friends and family flying out of London?  We are also vacationing at the Gran Carive Real summer 2011 to check it out.

    • 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.
