sooo glad you asked these questions. was wondering the same thing!! I really want to wear my hair down, or half up, half down, but am worried about the humidity-frizz factor. 

 

and make up...I'm so clueless about wedding (photography) make up. :)

Also, if anyone had their makeup done at the salon at EDR, how did you like it? Can you send or direct me to a picture of how it looked? Thank you :)

    I had both may hair and makeup done at the salon. Rafa did an amazing job, despite our language issues! LL_120110_045.jpgLL_120110_300.jpg

      I was just told that we need to bring our own cards that specify which plate should go to each guest. Can you tell me what you did for your food selection cards? Do you have any pics of your reception that you can share (I saw the one's on your review, but I don't think many were from the reception...)? I'm curious how they set everything up... I was also just told that they re-did the Tucanes area and now it's larger than before. Was the new area there when you had your reception? Also, did you get candle bags or tiki torches? Thanks!!
       



       

      We did buffet so I can't help you with the cards and we didnt have many photos of our reception area since our photographer was only for 3 hours. Here is a picture of our donkey cocktail hour at the Health Bar

      Also at our Tucannes Reception they had some tiki torches lighting up the pathway(which I never paid for) and they were great to add to the tropical vibe! Lanterns would be pretty too, I just didn't have any money left in my budget!

        Valeria just informed me as well of needing to differentiate the placecards at the reception.

         

        I saw this idea online and loved it! http://bios.weddingb...lace_cards.jpg

         

        My mom is actually going to write the names of the guests on the sand dollars/starfish/shell with our names and wedding dates on the back. We are also going to put a small string of fishing line through them to make the ornaments to hang on Christmas trees or where ever. That way anyone who is getting the lobster will have a sand dollar, and anyone having the mahi will have the starfish or shell.

          That is adorable!! I love it - so cute!! Are you going to use those stands (pictured to the right) for the table numbers?

           

          I think we are going to use these place card holders: http://www.favorsandflowers.com/coral-place-card-holders.htm and I was thinking I'd somehow tweak the place cards to reflect each dinner option. Also, for favors, I think we are going to get maracas. I found this adorable place that makes them in Mexico. For anyone who might be interested, here is the site: http://mishkadesignspv.blogspot.com/p/maraca-designs.html. We are only going ot do one maraca per guest because they are a little pricey, but they are so stinking cute, I had to have them :)
           

          Yay! I'm getting so excited!!!

            Lindsey - you are gorgeous!! thanks for sharing your salon experience. 

             

            I am thinking that I'm going to do wind chimes for our favors. I'll hang them around the chuppa for the ceremony, then have our guests take them for the reception.

            Hey Ladies,

             

            We are putting together our webinar schedule for BDW.  These webinars are great because not only can you get YOUR questions answered but also hear answers to questions from other brides that you may not have even though of :)

             

            Webinars are a great way to not only hear directly from the wedding department but see the wedding packages that they offer, ceremony/reception pics, etc.

             

            I try to only limit the webinars to once every 2 weeks so we of course can not do all resorts.

             

            Please vote on which resorts you would like to have webinars on...you can choose more than 1.

            ok EDR brides: so EDR gave us some new info today. in order to get the free afternoon wedding, we'd have to be booked in a Casita suite for 7 nights. It really doesn't specify this ANYWHERE on the website (morning vs. afternoon wedding, Casita vs. EDR room). has anyone else been told this? 

             

            our intention was to book the free wedding for 4pm, and we would upgrade depending on how many guests we have in our final count (20? great, we'll upgrade. 50? FABULOUS. let's work with the freebies).

             

            we were thinking of staying in a Casita suite regardless, but didn't want to be locked into that just yet b/c of the cost. (again..20 guests? upgrade suite & wedding. 50 guests? freebie and basic suite).

              Allie, we *were* told this but to be honest, we went through destinationweddings.com and it was our coordinator there who gave us this information up front. I don't remember looking for it on the website so I can't really speak to it being there. Sorry that this is being thrown at you last minute though =(
