Hi everyone! First time poster, months long lurker :)

We booked our wedding at GDR for September 14, 2017. Most of us are staying at EDR and a few people at EDC but we really liked the idea of getting married on the pier at GDR as it will protect some of our older family members from the heat and has a less chance of a change of location if it rains. We have an estimated guest list of 40 with 26 booked so far. We used Destination Weddings to get us group rates for some people, the rest of my wedding party will be staying as members as my parents and I are members al EDR. I have Maritza from Lomas as my wedding coordinator and after a first bad start, she seems to be good at getting back to me with answers to all my questions within a few days. We first decided to go with a Memorable Moments package but after calculating what we needed and what we didn't, we decided to go a la carte instead. I have a friend who had her destination wedding last year and she kept reminding me that no one remembers decorations but the activities instead. So we are focusing on some cool tote bags with gifts and possibly adding on to the reception "free" dinner as it seems to restrictive to me. We are using the free dinner that comes with Always and Forever for our welcome dinner on the Monday night and the free reception dinner is the one we "earned" by getting 16 rooms. Personally I am more inclined to purchase the BBQ Deluxe instead for the money and make it a really awesome meal. I keep hearing really good things about it, would anyone have any pics to show me? That was far as we are along right now!

    • 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.
