Recommended Posts

YAY!!! We leave for Mexico in 4 days!!!!!! Of course I have to thank Tammy, and every single BDW'er on here for making this time fabulous. If it weren't for your ideas, information, and most of all SUPPORT (and I definitely needed it!!) I wouldn't have such great things to show you all. love.gif

 

Ok, on to the pics! The engagement- We moved to SF after FI graduated law school. Little did I know, he had purchased the ring before we moved! I didnâ€t get it until 6 months later, because he was doing contract work, and wouldnâ€t propose until he had a settled job and could ‘take care of meâ€. So he got one, we went down to Monterey for the weekend, and he proposed on the beach- it was perfect!!

For our cocktail hour, we are doing a postcard guestbook, as well as cigars for adults, and fun stuff for the kids *also totally an idea from a fellow BDW’er* (pirate hats, swords, glow wands, fairy wings, feather boa-unfortunately, they are all packaged, no pics!). These are the signs that I made for both:

FMIL and I made these Christmas ornaments for our family members. It is something that she did with both of her daughters, and I was so touched to see that she wanted to do them with me! She adores them, and loves to talk about how exciting it is every Christmas to be decorating the tree and to be reminded of the wedding. She is so cute- I am super blessed to have such fabulous inlaws!:

    • 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.
