I just looked at the packages, and I cant believe how good the prices are! I think we will probably book there! Thanks for letting me know there were packages online, I didnt even see that when I was checking out their prices. Are you using any of the local vendors or just going with what the resort has?

We are just going with the resort for anything. I believe the riu is pretty sticky on having outside vendors... and I have seen pics that their photographer has taken and I have seen the flowers the florist has made and they are all amazing so i cant imagine paying even more for nothing! The only thing i might go outside for is my hair. I dont know though; the package we got is the Caprice and I get my hair hair nails and pedicure done there for free and my girls get a 10% discount. (which I will be paying for). What date are you thinking of?

ok thats good to know that the resort might be a bit tricky to work with when it comes to outside vendors. where did you see pictures of the flowers, etc? we are getting married Feb 2013, so i have a while still but i want to book in a couple months so i dont have to worry about it anymore.

We're staying at the Riu Santa Fe for our wedding, but we're actually having our wedding off the resort at the Sunset Da Mona Lisa.  It definitely costs more in the long run, but I am a type A when it comes to planning parties.  I couldn't handle the thought of not being able to pick my own vendors and not be in control of my wedding.  A good friend of mine stood in a wedding at the Santa Fe and she said it was amazing! but you need to be pretty laid back.  She said the weddings take place near the infinity pool and that there will be people standing around watching your wedding (maybe you can ask for a more private location?). I think that's the case with having your wedding at any resort, but I think the photographers are usually pretty good at getting them out of your pictures!

 

If anyone wants to know about outside vendors I've done lots of research, and can recommend some really good vendors. Such as hair and makeup, Suzanne Morel, she's really not that much more expensive than the salon at the resort, maybe $10 more - but you have to leave the resort, but you will be guaranteed to have amazing hair and makeup!  I've been to other resort hair dressers and had to practically show them how to curl my hair.  I've search blogs and blogs of many different photographers and have not seen one of Suzanne Morels brides who did not look stunning!

 

Also my recommendations is to read tripadvisor reviews until your blue in the face.  I read them every couple nights now!  I feel like I know the resort like the back of my hand!  I know what I can expect in terms of good and bad.  The bad is usually over reacting hoity-toity people who should probably not be staying in an all-inclusive resort with a price point as low as the Santa Fe!

    • 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!
