Gail - the steak & lobster are YUMMY. I think it was one of our favorite meals there. It's a great choice!!

We did the BBQ buffet which was really nice, people could go up for seconds and it came with a whole bunch of tiny desserts. It was perfect because we saved on not having to pay for a cake, plus people didnt eat alot of desserts. Which worked out awesome for our group.

More than likely it'll be pretty windy - the beaches there tend to be! That said, if it's your dream, just do it. It's not so windy you can't handle it or won't enjoy it. I'm a firm believer in not compromising your dream - especially when it comes to your wedding.

    Has anyone done the mexican cocktail party with the donkey? We've been given a bunch of locations but not totally sure which I would prefer. Thoughts?

        We are still not doing a cake, I can't understand why they want $85 to feed 6 people cake. No thank you!!!

         

        I don't blame you on that one at all, the steak and lobster is a great choice. That was my favorite part of our wedding meal the steak, plus it will not compare to venue's at home for food. Your guest's will be blown away by it all. So worth it. :)

            Yeah I was reading somewhere and the Royale guest should not be using the pool chairs. I really don't think they care unless someone in that Casitas Area complains. We meet a group that hung out in our pool area b/c the old people in there Casitas area complained they were too loud. So that moved to not deal with the crabby people. So I am sure if they would have been Royale guest they would have definitely been asked to go back to the other side. LOL!

                Everything went prefect! Nothing was out of place and it was all great. I have no complaints. I am getting ready to leave again to head out to a friend's wedding in Punta Cana this weekend. Nothing like being gone for 15 days from work coming back for 3 and leaving again. LOL! I am a little worried b/c they were at our wedding and all our guest were blown away with how awesome the resort was and how prefect the wedding ceremony and reception were. The couple's wedding we are going to this weekend didn't get any perks like we get from El Dorado. I am not sure if they even really have a wedding coordinator. They were having difficulty getting the resort to contact them back to get things planned. At one point the bride told me she would just pick everything out on Friday (the day before their wedding). It should be interesting. :) 

                 

                I will give more details and review when I get back to normalcy. I will say one thing about the decorating fee they charge. I was simple on my decorations for the tables at the reception (which has a story all its own). I asked a couple guest if they mind helping put a couple table numbers up for me and votive candles. I didn't want to pay $150 set up fee for so few things for 6 tables. I read somewhere you could not go into the reception area until right before it was time. Well I figure all my friends would need is 5-10 minutes max. Well just a heads up I was told that we could go into the reception area anytime after 5:00 pm (the reception started at 6:00). So those of you that don't have a whole lot to set up and you have really nice guest that would not mind helping keep that in mind. I am sure if you had something more elaborate then a few items to set as a center piece they might frown about it.

                  My husband and I are doing just received our email reminder regarding our final payment due date for our 1 year anniversary trip!!! I cannot believe that is coming up in a little over 2 months!!! We are using our vouchers and discount from getting married at EDR to take a 5 day anniversary trip to El Doradoa Seaside Suites! I know it's quite a bit smaller, but we are so looking forward to getting pampered El Dorado style!
