        Hi Sarah - Welcome!  The EDR thread is pretty quiet, so if your looking for lots of info, you're welcome to join our Azul Sensatori thread!  They are sister properties so we pretty much deal with the same types of questions.

         

        There's lots of May 2011 brides too :).  Whats your wedding date?

          Just got my final numbers and prices for my wedding. It's in 5 weeks!! Yay!  So if anyone needs to know prices not listed on the lomas website, I think I have pretty much priced out everything by now!!  We went with the free package by booking the casitas so we just had to add on a few things like flowers, gazebo decor, food and the donkey!   Ended up being pretty reasonable since we are bringing our own candle holders/candles and are reusing our ceremony flowers for the reception.   

          I'm glad to see the Hurricannes keep on missing the Mayan!!!

            My best advice for starters is book your ceremony site and reception location ASAP! You want the opportunity to get what you want before another bride gets the same date as you.  Welcome to the site!

              Ladies, I just got back from EDR a few days ago - my wedding was Friday, October 29th and it was BEAUTIFUL!!! From day one, everyone there kept telling me that we had made the right choice by picking EDR to get married out and I honestly couldn't agree more. I can't believe how smoothly everything went! I will post a review later...here is the link to our wedding picture slideshow =)

                We are having 26 guests and our wedding costs are $340 for the Cocktail hour,  $680 for dinner(we are having the BBQ Deluxe) and about $1000 for ceremony(gazebo fabric, runner and hanging flowers) and reception decor(table runners and vase rentals), flowers, music(Ipod stereo).  We also are bringing things from home that I didn't include in thoses costs like favors, candle holders and candles, disposable cameras, oot bags, BM dresses, GM outfits....and it goes on and on!!!  For photography we are using Cladia photo and getting the basic package for $1800.  I think our original budget is still looking good, so we are happy about that :) 

                I hope this helps you in your budgeting!

                  did you have any problem using US dollars while you were in the Mayan area?  Our TA said they are no longer accepted in Mexico!

                    hiiiii! :)

                     

                    newly engaged in October... Heading down to EDR next weekend with the fiance to do a site visit. I hope we love it and book our November 2011 wedding!! :D

                     

                    Anyone have questions that we should keep in mind when we meet with the WC next weekend? My mom is most worried about the weather and whether or not there will be a back up plan.

                     

                    I would love love to do our reception at Tucanes (did most people do a buffet?)...and how expensive are the private cocktail hours?

                     

                    Thanks!
