Cleans planning thread **pics and templates** Barcelo Colonial Jan 24 2011

Recommended Posts

Im so excited that its coming up so soon! We leave in a week and there is still so much left to do!


Mostly everything that I have for our wedding was made by me as we tried to keep the costs down. Thank god I have a friend with a industrial printer, it made things WAYYY easier on me. cheer2.gif


Anyhow Here is goes!!


We first started to talk about getting married in the summer of 09. Scott wanted to start having kids and I wanted to get married first. We went to Las Vegas and picked out the ring I wanted and were going to elope, but changed our minds and decided we should have friends/family there. Well, two months later we find out im pregnant lol. We started to plan to get married after our son was born in April and decided on Jan.

The rings:


His is just a simple white gold band and mine is just over a carat Hearts On Fire diamond. love.gif


Next I got the dress, this was from my last fitting.



My sons outfit Chilliwack-20101215-00078.jpg

Scott is wearing white linen pants and a long linen/cotton white dress shirt from Tommy Bahammas.

The Groomsmen are wearing tan linen pants and a off white linen/cotton dress shirt from Tommy Bahammas. I dont have pics of these though sad.gif


My bridesmaids are wearing Jasmine dresses that I LOVE LOVE LOVE!


As for invitations I ended up just telling friends/family in person and sending emails out as we only gave them a few months to book. I will however be making out invitations for our summer BBQ with the rest of our family/friends who couldnt attend or wernt invited.

These are what I picked out, but im swapping the ribbon for blue and adding some flowers:


I started to get things for our OOT bags right away in the summer when we finally decided on a venue/hotel.

I got a lady from etsy to make me bags, I even got to pick my own fabric out which was awesome. msnparty.gif she was very easy to work with and ended up remaking me my bags because I think they got lost in customs. :(



This is everything that I ended up gathering to put in the bags.


and templates for the survival kit, brochure, key card holders and for our crossword.

This is our cake topper, I wanted something funny and this seemed perfect since 90% of Scotts time is spent playing video games.

    • 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.
