Just the two of us???

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

So initially my fiance and I decided on a small destination wedding- but after all the drama of some family members being upset they weren't invited and budget issues, we no longer have guests. My fiance and I have decided to go along with our plan of a destination wedding but now it will only be the two of us! We are now planning on a AHR on our return. I have looked all over the site and kind find any other brides in my boat...is there anyone out there? What are your thoughts/suggestions?

I think that is perfectly Fine to be just the two of you.relief.gif I was going to go with that same idea and have a huge AHR but....some of my friends and family really want to be there and so it will still be small (25 guests) and it will be more intimate. I wont have and BM or GM or anything like that... I think it will still be beautiful. It sux that our family have such influences on some of our decisions, but you have to think about it in a kind of selfish way....it is YOUR DAY! who ever can come will come and if noone shows GREAT! it is about you and FI anyways. I think it will be soooo sweet and romantic!love.gif besides you wont have to plan any "GROUP EXCURSIONS" or any of that junk and it will be a little intimate getaway for you guys! Good Luck with planning! it will be fun. Don't even worry too much about it.

I say if thats what the two of you want go for it. Because people will never be happy when it comes to a wedding. I know some people who have had at home weddings and people still ar emad years later because of something petty and really dont matter. So no matter what you will make people mad so at the end of the day its about you and your FI.

You can't please everybody. What people fail to realize is it's not THEIR wedding!!! If you want a DW then DO IT!!! Then take your pics....it's usually just the bride and groom in the most important photos anyway! Do what makes YOU happy!! Go...have fun!!!

I agree with the other ladies. Do what feels right for you. Sometimes other people are the ones that are selfish in their thinking, putting their wants and wishes before the couples. If it is your dream to have a destination wedding then do it. With just the both of you, it will be your wedding and honeymoon all in one. You wont have to worry about other guests cramping your style or interrupting your alone time. Enjoy it, and when you get back you will have the AHR that everyone can attend. I say go for it!

Do what you got to do! I wish I had the courage some of you have. I want to just say... "I mean this as respectful as possible, but these decisions need to be ours as it is our wedding" but I live with my in laws and I really don't want to be kicked out! Since you have the guts, go for it! Have fun you kids!

    • 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.
