    This would not work at EDR, or at least I think it wouldn't.  EDR is quite large and the resort it self is quite a distance away from the gates.  At the gates they have a check in, and only vehicles on a list are permitted in and out of the gates.  So, so they would not be able to meet you at the front lobby where other services come in and out.

    Just to clarify, brides have reported that they met vendors at the gates of their respective resorts to avoid charges (not necessarily the lobby). I'm not sure about EDR, but it might be worth finding out whether this is a viable option if a bride is looking to save.

      Basically everyone was stating that to even get to the gates at EDR is quite a hike - there's no way you could walk there and back, especially with flowers.

      yup - what everyone says is true. and you won't want to chase those down on your wedding day anyway.

       

      if you have a guest staying off property who wants to bring the flowers, that may be an option - but I'd say it's a long shot.

       

      if your heart is set on fresh flowers, you are somewhat limited and need to get them through Lomas. I'm not even sure if they will approve an outside florist - I recall hearing from a recent bride that the only outside vendors they will let in, even with the fee, is photographers. 

       

      You can talk to your WC about smaller bouquets, or less expensive flower types. Either way - as long as you stick with what they have available, it'll turn out beautiful.

          My wedding coordinator told me that sheers for the gazebo have to be 12 mts long x 1.5 mts wide.

          It was hard to find organza of my wedding colors. So I used http://www.tulleshop.com/Wholesale-Apple-Green-Organza-Fabric-p/310009.htm

          http://www.tulleshop.com/Wholesale-Baby-Maize-Organza-Fabric-p/310002.htm

          Colors of the sheers that i received were slightly different from the colors on these pictures( green-darker, yellow - much lighter), but they were still very nice.

          Also I've found on ebay a very nice seller dreampartycreation

          I ordered chair bows from them( very nice quality, love them); they also have a nice selection of organza bolts. However, their bolts are 50" wide(((

           

          Hope this helps)

            Does anyone know if there are additional costs for private events other than the food itself? Is there a setup pp fee, a flat private event fee, or something of that nature? We're trying to get a better idea of what costs will be.

            The event is the cost of the food. If you bring your own extra decorations, linens, etc., then there is an additional fee to set up those items. (if you rent or purchase items from them directly then it is just that fee, no additional setup)

             

            This fee is decided by the local wedding coordinator on site, and usually will vary by the amount of work that is required to place all your decor and the number of guests. (but a good rule of thumb is plan for about $5/person....and usually the maximum has been about $250)

                Does anyone know for the BBQ menu that is offered for private events, are all of the items listed included or is it pick and choose? So for example will we need to choose to meats and two veggies, etc.

                Hi Jennifer,

                 

                I don't know for certain, but I believe they serve all of the dishes. It's a great question to ask!! Will you keep us posted on the answer, if one of other EDR brides doesn't have it for us? I'd like to add that to the official thread info.
