  1. Hey ladies

     

    Sorry this took me so long.

     

    Our wedding took place on November 26, 2009 at the El Dorado Royale outside of Cancun, Mexico. We were lucky enough to have Citlalli Rico and her assistant Tamara from Claudia Photo do the photography for our wedding and TTD. They were fabulous! Everyone loved them!

     

    Here are just a few of the pro pics! Enjoy!

  2. Hi ladies

    I didn't really haggle on anything extra, although I know a lot of people have. I was considering doing the wooden runner, but decided against it once I got there. Since we used the iPod station in both locations (cocktail party and reception) they did one for half price - fine by me. I wanted my planning and time there to be as stress free as possible, and by this point the few extra $$ weren't going to make much difference to my already-blown budget :)

    We used the free supper at El Cocotal as our 'welcome' supper. We went with the menu that had carmelized chicken or beef tenderloin as the main entree. Everyone really loved the food and the service was great!

    Our reception supper for the wedding was menu 3B, which gave you a choice of chicken, beef tenderloin or mahi mahi. The food was amazing! Everyone raved about it for days! Also, while the reception was going on, I decided that I wanted a bottle of champagne for every table (there were only 3). They did this and just charged it to my room! So even last minute details are possible!

    As for music, we did consider a DJ, but ended up going with the iPod. Our group was rather small (20 people total) and I think the DJ would have been too much. The iPod worked out just fine for us! We ate at such a leisurely pace that there really wasn't that much time for dancing! We ended up at the bar later that night anyways.

    My biggest stresser about the whole wedding was my TA. She didn't even reply to half of my guests, she refused to reprice the package when she told me originally it was possible, and then could miracuously offer a better price when I told her my guests were booking online, as it was cheaper. All of our guests were there for 7 nights, and most paid about $1800 airfare and tax included.


  3. Ladies, I recently had my wedding at EDR, and it was FABULOUS!!! The food, the service, the locations, everything was great! My guests loved the resort and were so happy we had our wedding there. We had our ceremony at the Presidential Gazebo, with a cocktail party at the Fuentes gazebo and a private supper/reception at Tuscanes. Hopefully I will get my review done soon with some pictures

    Thanks for all the compliments!

    The bags are from Ten Thousand Villages

    CORR - The Jute Works Jute Shoulder Bag | Ten Thousand Villages Canada

    I didn't see them on the US site, and they are out of stock on the Canadian side. They were $9/bag. You could always call to see if you could order them. They were a big hit!

    Thanks!!
    If you send me your email address, I will send you the tags as a pdf. I made them in Corel Draw if you'd prefer them like that.

    The small jute bags? I ordered them from papermart.com . The actual OOT bags I bought at Ten Thousand Villages

  6. Hey ladies

     

    Thanks to this forum I was constantly thinking of new things for my OOT bags. I can say that without a doubt the biggest hit was the pashminas! The ladies loved them and constantly used them.

    My colors were green, brown and ivory.

    I ordered small jute bags online and made the tags for the kits. I put Advil, Immodium, and Crystal Light individual packs in them.

     

    Welcome booklets

    I basically stole this from another member on this forum. It has a welcome letter, map of the resort, room list, Mexican phrases, and wedding events and itinerary.

    I also included travel candles from Pacifica (Mexican Cocao scented), Sudoku books, word finds, stain remover pens, and hand sanitizers, most of which I bought at the dollar store.

  7. Hey ladies

     

    I just wanted to let you know about a fabulous seller on Etsy.

     

    I originally bought a pair of earring to wear on my wedding day from Originals by Lynnette on Etsy. I later decided that I wanted a bracelet to match, and had her make one for me. She was great to deal with, and even sent me a pair of free earring to wear on my honeymoon!
