    I'll definitely keep you posted.

     

    Also has anyone had a reception on the pier thingy or know anything about it? I keep seeing pictures but I don't know the name or have any details about it.

    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.

      I did the BBQ buffet all of that is including and it was wonderful.

        Also, I never did a cake or anything because you seriously get a buffet of desserts and the table is filled. Our guest's said it was one of their best meals as well. All the meat came fresh off the grill and the sides were place on one table. If our guests were still hungry they could go up for more, it was really nice having so many options to chose from the steak and mash potatoes were my favorite, but seriously all the food rocked. Below is a picture of the dessert table and across the way the chef's were cooking the meat across the grill and the sides were placed next to the grill.

        the pier was just opening when we had our wedding there - it's really pretty! it's right behind Jojo's & the beach bar. it does have a righteous view of the sandbags - but you don't notice those at night. here's my husband sitting at the end of it -it's the only photo I have, but I'll take more when we are there in November. it's a gorgeous pier - would be nice all set up with lights for an evening event over the water.

            I can't believe your one year will be here before you know it, When do you guys leave for that? We are going to be going next fall because we have a baby boy on the way in January and thought he will be a little bit older by then so we are going to go and enjoy a kids karisma property. I just have been thinking lately how badly I just want to relax in the water at El Dorado Royale, lol!!!!

              I think Karisma has a Generations that is opening up right next to the Royale this December. I believe its just a bit more expensive but includes nanny service and a bunch of other perks.

                Yeah we have heard about that one. I cant' wait to see the final pictures. We have been to all of the resorts, but the generation's when touring them for our wedding. The only Azul we did not stay at was Azul beach. We want to stay there or at the new generations Riviera Maya one, but who know's we will talk to our travel agent and see, since she goes alot and get's to see them all. 

                 

                I see you are getting married in April, it is beautiful weather during that time. We stayed in a swim up casita for 10 nights and loved it and the best part no rain any days with the beautiful sun shinning down.Best of luck with all the planning. :)

                the pier is pretty good sized - how big will your party be? I'll take some more pics for you when we are down there. 

                 

                we didn't see sand on the pier at all, if it's there, it's been tracked there from people walking. but they'd sweep it for an event! 

                 

                they probably wouldn't let you fish off the pier, since people are swimming around the area. however, they do like to say "in Mexico, anything is possible"! so ask at the activity hut.

                I didn't even think about the sandbags but that's a really good point. I saw a picture of the pier on FB with wind blocks and all set up for an event, it was sooo beautiful. Originally I wanted Tucanes but now I switch to the pier. Do you know how many people it fits and if there would be room for dancing etc.? Also the reason why I didn't want a beach reception was sand in the food. Do you know if the sand blows onto the pier that much? Oh and my fiance wants to know if you can fish off the pier?
