Yes, sorry I meant to put details I was just leaving to go for dinner with some girlfriends. I was just too excited not to post anything! She has tons of other things too, so even if you don't like that style on you maybe she has something else that's more up your alley ;)

 

For the Jewelry details:

 

I'm super happy with the jewellery :D ! I got it all from etsy, the store is called poetryjewelry. She has tons of things, including necklaces. Basically everything she makes is beautiful haha. There is a matching necklace to the earrings but I'm not wearing a necklace so I didn't get it. The final product is exactly as pictured on the site, so I'm really happy with it. The pearls don't look cheap, which is what I was worried about. Of course, if you look at them closely you can tell I didn't spend a fortune on this, but I think that's expected. I think I got what I paid for and I'm 100% happy with that. I totally recommend her work. 

 

I had seen these earrings ages ago, and no matter what else I looked at, I kept going back to these. Then I found the bracelet, which I thought would go well together and got them both. The earrings are not too big nor too small. They're just perfect, big enough to make an elegant statement but without being too overwhelming. I'd say they around 2 inches? maybe a bit less. She also makes them in silver, gold or rose gold. I'm more of a silver kind of gal, but I have to say, the rose gold looks gorgeous :)

 

I have really small wrists, which makes shopping for bracelets hard sometimes. I realized that her standard size would be too big for me but I asked if she could make my bracelet smaller and she did (I gave her the measurement when I ordered). It fits perfectly.

 

She had everything done and shipped within 2 or 3 days after ordering. The longest part was for it to go through customs, but I didn't have to pay duties. The shipping was reasonable too :)

 

If you're looking for wedding jewelry go to her store here:

@calgarybride2015

 

that was a true score.  I wonder if there is a way to request peso pricing.  Im sure they would just make it whatever the equivalent was in U.S. 

 

@perianjay  I'm totally kicking myself too.  Like I grew up in a border city where the dollar has always fluctuated and nothing is forever.  I am going to start up this account and keep it for good because when it is at par I will be buying aggressive to make some $ off the exchange. 

 

I'm sure the price would just be made equiv to what the US price is.   I considered asking the photog to convert then realized they would just take US price and convert to peso.  Only area that may help is if the dollar gets worse; If they convert the price and lock it in now.

I found the link to the glasses. They're perfect! Thanks.

 

Question. Where did you find the little stamps at Michaels? I've looked there both yesterday and today, and couldn't find anything travel related at all. Also, the lantern at IKEA - is that a seasonal item or is it something they carry all the time? I love the white. Are they expensive? The nice thing is I pretty much need only one. I want to do a cake table I think but I don't think I need any decoration for it.

@acw271011 great! Yeah, and you don't have to personalize them if you don't want to. I thought they're really good quality for the price and the colors are super nice and bright :)

 

Last time I was at Michael's I saw the stamps by where all their Martha Stewart stuff is and sort of the first aisle of the scrapbooking section. On the other side of that they have the scrapbooking albums. At least the way the store I go to is set up, that's the first aisle. They come in a mason jar with a bunch of them. I posted the picture with only a few of them. You can always take the picture with you and ask one of the ladies there, if you tell them they  come in a mason jar I'm sure they'll know where they are. They're not with the rest of the stamps though. 

 

I'm not sure if Ikea has those lanterns year around. I actually bought them used from a girl on kijiji hahah (I feel so cheap for even saying that hahah :P). However, I do know that they bring them in every year and they have some now. I need a couple more so I need to head there to pick those up. 

 

There are some nice lanterns out there, but Michael's were always more expensive, and I can't remember about Oriental Trading. I really liked the ones from Ikea and the price was right.

 

I'm not sure if it's worth it, but a lady over in the Riviera Maya rents out decor to brides. Her prices are really good and you just meet up with her, she gives you the stuff and then meet her again to return it. I think it would be worth it if you're renting a few things from her because you have to pay a transport fee (something like $10 or $15), you can find her if you search Love & Lace Wedding Decor on facebook. She has pictures of everything on there and prices. She has a few lanterns in different sizes.
