Hey everyone! This is my first time on here. I just got engaged about a month and a half ago (yay:)), and since I've been so busy finishing up school (6th yr pharmacy student) I'm just now gettin a chance to start the wedding process:) The good thing is, I do have some time, we're looking at June or July 2008. Definitely want a DW, but still undecided where. I am hoping I can get some ideas from you all on this site:) I'm open to ANY suggestions or advice that anyone has! I'm feeling very overwhelmed and clueless!

Looking forward to learning a lot:) Thanks in advance:)!!

Thanks! I'm looking for somewhere that's affordable, but I don't want to sacrifice a gorgeous location. Mexico is definitely at the top of my list; I was thinking it would be the most affordable for a DW going out of the country?? I just need some suggestions/somewhere to start....

Thanks for your post:)!

I heard that Cabo can be more expensive...the Dreams resort just looked so beautiful (altho I don't really know what other good resorts are there). I also would like a place/resort where there are plenty of activities and things for us and our guests (not having a large grp tho) to do. I heard DR is beautiful, just thought it was expensive... Mostly everyone would be coming from Ohio. What about Belize? Have heard a little about that too.

belize can get expensive with airfare...my good friend got married there and they loved staying at their resort BUT were always a little nervous when they were off the resort...and these people are seasoned travellers....like she was a volunteer nurse in india so she doesnt scare easily...also hubbies brother honeymooned there and they thought it was beautiful but they said some areas were not that safe so...if you decide you just want to stay on the resort it should be fine...

    • 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.
