Leigh2011's Planning Thread - Long with Lots of Pics

Recommended Posts

Wow! Congratulations! I love all the details with the links to where you purchased your items. It's really helpful. And I ABSOLUTELY adore the Chinese symbol for marriage on your stationery. It's a really nice touch for the your hubby's family I'm sure. I'm Chinese myself, and I was wondering whether or not to find a traditional Chinese wedding gown for the wedding, and seeing yours makes me want to find one for sure now. Thanks! Your wedding looked beautiful

The dual ceremony possibility for destination weddings (legal at home and then symbolic at your destination) was perfect for wearing two types of wedding dresses.  The traditional Chinese dress that I ordered online was of good quality, I just needed to take it to a local tailor to get it fitted around the waist - so I would recommend that retailer. 

 

One issue we had with the double happiness symbol on our wedding items was with the koozies.  The base for the koozie was navy blue and the symbol was in white.  Apparently my now mother-in-law thought that the navy blue was too close to black and traditionally the double-happiness symbol with black means death.  So if you use the double-happiness symbol just make sure you pay attention to all of the potential pitfalls!  But I hope the usage of the symbol on all of the stationary made my in-laws feel included in the whole event.

    • 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.

    • 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!
