  1. Wow, these are awesome. We get married at the EDR on Friday the 20th. We are leaving on Sunday. I would love to include something similar in our welcome bags. I was able to dowload some of your templates but I think I ran out of points.
  2. Melanie! Wonderful pictures! Thank you so much for sharing them. It looks like you guys had an awesome time and you looked absolutely beautiful! -Jaime

  5. WOW!! Congratualtions and welcome back. I am looking forward to your review. I am getting married at the building 55 gazebo on June 20th with a private reception for 50 people at the Salon Royale We are haivng our cocktail hour on the patio in from of the salon royale with a mariachi band. For the reception we will have the DJ. Has anyone had the DJ at the EDR? Seems like most people have been using iPods.

Actually, I guess this was be because I signed my contract so long ago, over a year so things were different back then. I guess EDR is updating some of their policy. SOrry I could not be of more help.

She beat prices that airline workers get (perks) and has been very helpful and accomodating. She made several calls & straighten out issues with WC on these fees for photographer too. Also Berman travel is well known for their business at Karisma resorts. They were just voted top TA for 2007 with the resort. The owner of Berman travel knows the owners personally at the EDR & Karisam resorts. So they will take care of you and give you alot of help when booking your wedding even there. I used Heather from Berman Travel as well. She is most knowledgable about the EDR and very nice. I highly recommend her.
  8. I would love to see some of the pictures from the actual wedding! Do you have them yet??
  9. Yeah, I'm not paying that. My wedding planner here and Monica worked it out. I'm sure you can too.
  10. Awesome pictures Shea!! I love trash the dress sessions. Funny, I actually tried on that dress when I was wedding dress shopping!!! I am getting married at gazebo 55 at the EDR on June 20th. I opted for a rehearsal dinner shoot instead of the morning after shoot. Now I am wondering if I did the wrong thing.... Have you done anything with those pictures?

Also used this on the place cards to let wait staff know who got what. Bre, I am having a private dinner reception as well with the pork and salmon just like you did. How was the food? Our private reception is at the Royale salon.

Question: Do you have to pay to rent the music equipment for iPod twice, or is it just a one time fee? Thanks! Hi Maggie, I tried contacting you a few months back but perhaps you never got my message. I just wanted to let you know that I am getting married at the EDR the same day sa you! June 20th, 2008!! We should compare notes. My name is Jaime and you can email me at jlh330@psualum.com if you want. Just a thought!! I hope you have a wonderful wedding!! -Jaime

  15. Hi everyone! I am only 5'1" and my fiance is 6'2". I want to wear heels during my beach ceremony but know I will sink in the sand. Any suggestions for cute wedged heels that anyone has found? I refuse to wear flops or go barefoot. Please HELP!
