    We had every intention of not staying together the night before but we were both just so exhausted that we ended up staying in our room together!

      Is anyone doing a site visit before their wedding? If I can find a reasonable flight, I'm going to do it for sure! Dimplz - very random question for you.. I am thinking about ordering door hangers for our guest... would you happen to remember at all if there were door knobs or if it possible to hang these :) TOLD YOU, Random!! haha

        laurenvuitton - I believe that the door hangers were not the knob kind by the handle and I am pretty sure that you could hang something on them! I thought about doing the door hangers as well but ran out of time! I think they are so cute!

          laurenvuitton- I'll hopefully be there in 2 weeks for a visit. I'll check out the door knobs.

          Anything else anyone wants me to scope out?

            HA!! Thanks Tinker :) I did end up ordering them since they were that much! How far in advance did you ladies book your DJ if you went thru the resort? Dont know how the process works since I just switched over.

            Thanks!!

                  Hey El Dorado girls! I just got back from my wedding at Azul Sensatori, we moved to El Dorado for our honeymoon. I just have to say the beach locations are stunning! I don't know much about the other locations. The chapel looked smaller in person than I remembered it looking in photos. I don't know if they charge different prices for the different beach locations, but the furthest southern location is by far the most stunning location I saw. It's right at the southern most edge of resort and over looks the ocean and shoreline, absolutely gorgeous! The resort is quite large. This was one thing we weren't as crazy about. We had to walk quite a ways to get to one place or another, they have little golf cart like shuttles but we decided to just walk. We found it difficult to keep track of our guests at Azul, it would be 10x as difficult at El Dorado. I would advise doing a block of rooms, or make sure your group is in the same vicinity, otherwise it would be difficult to keep track of them. They have attempted to make the beach more usuable by placing large sand bags that look kind of like beached whales, but I'm sure those who wanted to enjoy the water without all the rock and seaweed (that you'll find at Azul Sensatori) appreciated it. The food was absolutely fantastic. We asked our concierge what the best restaurants were since we had limited time at the resort and he told us Kampai and D'Italia, both were fabulous. We also ate at JoJo's and did the candlelit dinner on the beach, both were also awesome! I'm exciting for you girls, it's an awesome resort, with great service!

                    I am going to EDR for my wedding and honeymoon - 11 days total. Do those of you who have been there think that this is too long at one resort? Will we get bored or tired of the same restaurants? We are thinking of switching to casitas for the honeymoon to change it up. Thoughts?

                      We were at Azul Sensatori for 4 nights then switched to El Dorado for 3 nights. We think if we could do it all over we would have just stayed at azul, because it was kind of a pain to pack everything up transfer to the other resort and unpack, it wasted a whole day. The thought behind changing resorts was, we wanted a seperate honeymoon, we weren't sure how long our family and friends would stay. They knew we were only there until Thursday so all of our family left and a few of our close friends that live abroad, who we don't see often stayed. So it was a bummer to leave them. We had a great time together but if we could do it all over again we would have stayed. Just would have still told everyone after the wedding would be our honeymoon (so we wouldn't feel obligated to hang out). I think you will be fine staying the whole week at El Dorado though, it is so large I think you will have plenty of variety of restaurants. In fact we saw people there who chose to dine at certain restaurants more than once. We would have loved another opportunity to dine at D'italia or atleast just crab dessert there, it was awesome! If we were to stay at El Dorado again we would stay in a casita, just because it seemed closer to the action and their portion of the beach was catered to by waters, the end we were on (the southern end) was not.
