Awesome we will be bridal twins!! Lol! When is your big day by the way? Are you also doing the sunset cruise? Are you doing your wedding on the beach and reception on the lawn or did you go with the restaurant?

JanineA- I just received the email containing the different food options that are offered. We are not sure which is better (I need to do more reading on BDW) as to if Somerset is a better reception option than a local restaurant. We are only expecting <20 guests, so I want to find something that everyone will enjoy with a beautiful view.

 

The wedding will be on Thursday June 23, 2011 and none of my guests are staying at the Somerset. Our TA is pricing deals at nearby hotels for them. Once we recieve the information, I plan to launch our website to keep everyone on the same page.

 

I have no clue what the Sunset cruise is; I only spoke with Monique for a few minutes today so that I could introduce myself and ask a few questions. Is this something that you're doing?

 

The rehearsal dinner will be at a restaurant; luckily FI's parents will cover the associated costs. Yes, the wedding will be on the beach and the reception on the lawn. What music options are you choosing? I was thinking of a steel drum band. Due to the low numbers of people, I wanted to have something to keep the small crowd lively.

 

I would like to have more pictures of the available options on the property to that we can make a more informed decision of where we'd like the reception.

 

Isn't this exciting?

Here are some recent weddings at the Somerset to show you beach wedding and lawn reception as well as one lawn reception

 

The Wedding of Ryan and Marc at the Somerset | Brilliant by Tropical Imaging

The Wedding of Ryan and Marc at the Somerset | Brilliant by Tropical Imaging

 

Stephanie & Paul get married at The Somerset | Brilliant by Tropical Imaging

The Wedding of Raluca and Dean at The Somerset | Brilliant by Tropical Imaging

 

Just FYI there is only one steel drum band on the island, Provo Primary School (my kids go there and my oldest plays in it). Because all of the kids are between 8-11 years old, they don't really do receptions...way past bedtime (LOL) If you want low key, I would say an ipod, dj or ask the Somerset about Nada.

Bay Bistro is right next door to the Sommerset, just a hop, skip and a jump. Joan is the owner/contact for Bay Bistro/Kissing Fish Catering. I just have Joan's personal email it's joanandclive@yahoo.com (just tell her Krys gave it to you as I didn't have the business one on had...we're old friends)

 

Joan is top notch organized and type A personality (and a whole lot of fun as well) the space is lovely old rustic caribbean (one of the first hotels on the island) and they have done the restaurant space nicely (heading over there in an hour for a birthday lunch for a friend). Clive is an excellent top chef who has headed restaurants in the UK and here on Provo...and a really loveable guy.

 

The Regent Palms is on one side of the Sommerset and Bay Bistro/Sibonee is on the other side.

I second that statement!! Thank you Krys for all the detailed information and for taking so much time to answer questions from all the T&C brides!!! You have no idea how much we all appreciate it!! Especially since there aren't that many T&C brides on the forum (although the number is growing) and it can be hard to find exactly what we're looking for.

    • 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.
