  1. How many bridesmaids are you having? I rented clear vases and the wedding coordinators put my bouquets in them right after the ceremony. And I also used the hanging arrangements on the tables as well. I know the fresh flowers are pricey but in this case you can use them twice and save some money on decor. I was very pleased the way they had them arranged on our tables.
  2. Here is a breakdown of what I spent and what I got for the money. It might help some of you get some ideas.
  3. I did the $250 one and it worked perfectly. I recommend it if you don't want to spend $$ on the DJ.
  4. Gazebo 55 is perfect...the back drop is absolutely gorgeous. There are rocks behind it and when the waves are big enough it makes a beautiful splash behind the gazebo. Tucanes is definitely the way to go for the reception. Everything was beautiful, we rented the sound system for $250 and brought my iPod and one of the staff played our music all night. We danced for hours then everyone ended up jumping in the pool. All of our guests told us is was the best reception they had ever been to. Will post pics as I get them. Also, instead of buying flowers for the reception, we had glass cylinders on the tables for the bridesmaids bouquets and we had the flowers we had made for the gazebo placed on the table also. Everything came together beautifully.
  5. Allie is right on with the rooms...in the regular rooms we had 517 and it was perfect. 2nd floor with a great view of the ocean. The candlelight dinners are on the beach there every night and everything is lit up so pretty. I think building 5 is ideal because its right beside the main heated pool where we spent most of our time while everyone was here. We are in Casita number 2922 and it is a swim up. No complaints. It's literally right across from the Casita Spa which was very convenient on our wedding day. The swim ups in the casitas are heated whereas the regular swim ups aren't.
  6. Girls who have not been to EDR yet, you're going to love it. It's more beautiful in person than it is in pictures. I'm sooooo glad I chose this place for my wedding. Rehearsal dinner tomorrow night, the Saturday is the big day! Those of you wondering about bugs... I have a few bites on me but no idea where or when I got them, haven't seen Mosquitos and gave but itched at all but something here bites. If anyone has any questions let me know and I'll do my best to answer though it may take me a couple of days to get back on here as the next two are going to be crazy busy :-) Here are some pics I've taken
  7. Important question girls...how did you communicate in Mexico...amongst each other at the resort and with people back home? Did your cell carriers offer Mexico plans? Or did you do calling cards? What is the best/cheapest way?
