Hi...May 4, 2013...Hard Rock, Punta Cana...Can't wait to share ideas...Just finishing up my STD's and will post as soon as they are done. Bride81...I am getting married on a Saturday...I plan on hosting a Welcome Dinner on the Thursday before so it would be nice to have everyone there by then. I will post a schedule of events on my website and let them know when FI and I are arriving and then guests can choose if they want to be there for all the events. As long as everyone is there by Saturday, I will be happy.

would you mind sharing your schedule with me?  I definitely want to do a welcome dinner, and I want to arrange a booze cruise/ snorkeling trip so people can meet.  Hopefully on that Thursday.  Are you inviting everyone to the welcome dinner?  And, are you doing a rehearsal dinner?

I really haven't given this much thought and maybe it's because I have a relatively small group.  As of now my room block is setup for a check-in on 5/14 and checkout 5/20. I know that many of my guest will use this time for personal vacations, and some will probably stay else where for the beginning or the end, but I am requesting that everyone stay at the AI between 5/16 and 5/19.

I am arriving the Saturday before and I know most of my immediate family is coming on Wednesday. The tentative plan is welcome cocktails/apps for everyone on Thursday so that everyone can meet. I will have a rehearsal dinner Friday night for bridal party immediate family. Saturday wedding and then maybe a farewell brunch on Sunday .

This is great, thanks bride81 for starting it!!  I'm still trying to decide on which resort, but am leaning towards Dreams Riviera Cancun (I'm trying to read the entire thread before making that decision, but it's like 850+ pages long ... ).  Maybe I should just bite the bullet and pick it ... anyone else as indecisive as I am???   confused.gif

    • 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.
