    Yes the stone pathway was close to the Tucanes Bar where we had the dinner and dancing. It was very convenient.

    Thanks for all the kind words ladies - makes me feel so good and pretty!!!

      LaurenV-I know 22 days! So excited! I never did a site visit all the planning was through email and phone calls. I have to say I was always on top of my WC and basically I was always a few steps ahead visualizing every detail and asking tons of questions :)

        I just realized I was posting with you on another thread about the same thing! opps! We picked the basic package just beacuse of price, but I would have loved to do a video of the ceremony or TTD. I hope 3 hours is enough time.

            Hi-

            Just happened across this thread. My company, 1023media, actually just did a promo video for The El Dorado a couple of months ago. If you want to check it out, you can go to my website,
            1023media - Video + Film Production Company Austin TX
            The El Dorado is absolutely gorgeous and a perfect place to have a wedding. We filmed a couple renewing their vows there for the promo and it was a really nice little ceremony. From what I understand they are fairly reasonable on pricing as well.

            We also do destination wedding videography so if anyone is interested in that you can check out our stuff at

              I ran across this website that offers 50% discounts at El Dorado resorts and 20% spa services. Might be something to look into if you have a little extra time upon arrival and don't mind touring the timeshare. Not sure if it is wort it but I ran ito it on a bride and groom's; website and thought I would post the info. Cheers

                Anyone have any ideas of how much to tip? I was thinking DJ Duremix, my wedding coordinator, bartenders for wedding reception...etc...any help would be great! We leave in 2 weeks :)

                  Has anyone had any issues with their guests finding cheaper EDR room rates with another travel agent? I thought I was receiving a 20% group rate discount but I have had a couple guests say they have found something even cheaper through their own agent. I'm not sure how to handle this. Anyone else encounter this?

                      I didn't have this issue either because at the beginning we encouraged everyone to book through our group and let them know they were getting a reduced rate. We're also going through DW.com. That really sucks though. It just presents a headache for you.
