Westin Los Cabos brides post here!

Recommended Posts

haha thanks krista... i havent really done anything in the last two days except send out the packages to my BMs. i have to get my ass in gear and send the entire ceremony to our priest tonight so he can approve it so if i need to make any changes to the programs i can do that before saturday because i plan to go to my dad's on saturday to print them off his printer since i broke mine.

 

oh we did finally get 95% of our seating chart done yesterday. but we couldnt agree on where to put a few people so we created a "fantasy table" LOL so hopefully my MIL will just add an extra table and place those people at it.

 

how's everyone else going?

 

oh not sure i mentioned this before, but we ended up adding food (crudites, dips, chips, etc) to our cocktail hour, so we cut out the hot appetizer we were going to do for the seated meal. instead now when the guests are seated after the cocktail hour, the first course they'll be served is salad.

 

i am still waiting for the mini organza bags to arrive from oriental trading, i think they are scheduled to arrive on the 25th but i will track the package later today to see. i'll probably go to papersource today after work to pick up the cardstock that i need to use to make my TY tags for the favor bags and maybe print those at my dad's on saturday too.

I think adding the food to the cocktail hour was a good idea. We are doing the same thing. What salad did you pick? We went with the goat cheese cherry tomatoes etc..one.

 

one more question for Westin brides: did you do speeches during dinner or after?

 

PS: I like the "fantasy" table haha

we chose the same salad as you did.

jesus, i have not even thought about speeches. i for sure dont want to do any, but i am sure they will happen anyway. i get too nervous talking in front of that many people.

we ended up adding another guest to the fantasy table so now it's a real table haha. table 9.

funny thing - i was talking with one of my sources on the phone at work just now, and she asked where my wedding was and i told her in los cabos, she said oh thats funny, i was just there, i stayed at the westin and i saw two beautiful weddings on the beach! i was like, im getting married there! haha so she was telling me all about everything there and how much she loved it. and how totally worth it the royal beach club is because the breakfast is not a continental breakfast, but rather a huge breakfast buffet, so if nothing else you get your money's worth the room from that. and then when you add in the cocktail hour (which is actually 3 hours in the rbc lounge) you get more than your money's worth. so i am so psyched that we wont have to pay for breakfast a single day we are there, and that we got the room upgrade to RBC just for having fulfilled our room block. woo! i am getting soooo excited. we leave in about 11.5 days!

    • 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.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
