Thanks ladies - all of the detail (good or bad) is a result of writing the planning thread as I was doing the planning.  It actually helped me keep track of what I had and what I needed.

 

Sharon99 - here are the documents you requested.  They are simply Word files so you can go in and change the font and shape colors and then just copy and paste in your logo.  I printed these out at work (where the color printer is much nicer than mine at home) on white card stock (50 sheets for $3.99 from Michaels)

My fiance/ husband is IN LOVE with this dog.  When Paul posted on facebook something about the ring, one of his friends replied back "How did you get the ring to stay on Presley's paw?".

 

So Paul knows about the stuffed dog for the rings, but the bouquet charm, cake topper, and card will all be a surprise for him.

 

In the beginning I thought my theme would be starfish, but it turned into a combination of dog, Asian, and starfish.  Oh well, I tried....

Courtney-- great job, you inspired me to include more of our dog in our wedding.  He's on our cake topper, as you can see, but I love the idea of having him on my bouquet.  You did such a great job on everything!

Wow, this is by far the best, most helpful wedding planning thread I have ever read (and I have read a lot!)  Thanks for including so much detail.  It really is great to know about how much other brides are spending, makes me feel like what Im spending is right on track.

    • 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.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
