Hey everyone!

My name is stephany and I'm new to the site :) i just decided to have a destination wedding after 5months of stressing trying to plan a traditional wedding that would have broke the bank and not allowed us to go on a honeymoon. So I haven't decided on a I just contacted a Travel Agent yesterday waiting on some quotes. I'm looking for some place in Mexico or jamaica and I'm totally open to any suggestions. My budget is 4k and its probably going to be me my fiancee, our baby girl, and our parents as of right now with everyone else waiting for some prices to decide whether or not they are going. The weeding will be either April 27th or 28th base on availability. Any suggestions on how to make this simple for me and cheap for everyone else . Thanks in advance :)

What city are you coming from? It will be way cheaper in Mexico rather than Jamaica. While the wedding package may cost about the same (ceremony reception etc), the actual cost of the trip (air, hotel, etc) will be cheaper in Mexico for about the same quality.


Good choice on destination wedding!

Hi Stephany-


Welcome to the boards and congratulations! You will find a lot of advice here.


I know you mention April as your month - however, you will lower your price potentially substantially by having your wedding on an off-peak season. April is still a very popular month for vacations - so you might want to see what your options are. 


Even if you've contacted a travel agent - I recommend doing some basic searches yourself on sites like expedia or kayak just to see what you come up with. I have heard brides on here obtain better deals sometimes by just booking on common sites. 


Good luck!

Hi Stephany, Congrats on your upcoming nuptials. I say you head over to Jamaica. The food is great, the weather is beautiful, and the people are awesome! Yes I'm biased because I'm Jamaican ;)

    • 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.
