  1. @@slrivas18 For decorations I hired an external vendor for decorations and tried to sneak it in, but got caught. That wasn't a good start to my wedding day when they walked in with screen shots from Facebook, but I guess I knew it was a possibility I would get caught. I also used an outside vendor for my flowers and they only charged my an extra $500 to set it up and outside vendor fee. In hindsight I would have done the same again cause my flowers were a lot cheaper and so were the decorations even with the extra $500. I did use their DJ and he was great. I sent them a list of songs for d
  2. @@slrivas18 Hello! I got married last year on the pier as well and loved it. The only downside was that they were not able to take down the shades on the side of the pier. I have attached some pictures of from the ceremony. I am not a huge sand person so I didn't like the idea of standing in it the whole ceremony. The pier is big enough to have your wedding at the end and then the cocktail hour at the other end, but still close enough to the beach to go take pictures. I am not much help on the photographer. I brought mine from home and felt it was completely worth it. The pictures are
  3. Was it hard not having an MC? I would want to ask a family member but I don't want it to consume their entire night. Does the dj control the flow of the night or was it the MC? Or did the MC just announce the bride and groom then speeches?
  4. @@jhercule I just stalked all of your pics!! You are gorgeous and everything looked amazing!! Helps me realize the stress I am feeling now will be worth it!
  5. @@jhercule Congratulations on your wedding! It is relieving to hear that everything went great! I am also renting stuff from Katy, I think by your suggestion, and yes she has been awesome to work with. I have a couple of questions for you! 1. How much did they charge for total setup? I went for a site visit and was told it was going to be $50 per string of lights to set up, since it was so much I only rented 5 strands from Katy. But if it's going to be less I would love to have more lights. 2. How much were your flowers? I reached out to Martin who Katy had suggested and he quoted me a
  6. Hi Ladies, I just got back from a friends wedding at another resort in Playa del Carmen, but made a stop at EDR to have a tour. It is a gorgeous property and I am super excited for my wedding to be here. With the advice of another lady in the discussion I am going to go with Love and Lace wedding décor since it is so much cheaper, but wanted to see if any other ladies used an outside florist. I was wondering if I could go into town and pick up the flowers on my own and bring them back to the resort or even have them delivered. I have asked my wedding coordinator, but we all know that I mig
  7. Hi Ladies!! Has anyone had trouble communicating with their wedding coordinator in the past month or so? My wedding isn't until October, but I will be in the Riviera Maya in May and was supposed to set up a site visit, but Carolina has been MIA. I have sent her three emails, and then called the number on her signature box, but no luck. Is anyone else having problems getting a hold of them? Also, does anyone have a direct number to their office? Thanks! Kim
  8. @@jhercule I checked out her site and she has so much more to offer than the hotel!! I am super excited Since I am now much more excited for decorations now than I was before since i have a good selection to choose from I have been looking at pictures on pinterest and online. Does anyone know if you can use long tables instead of the round ones? I have seen pictures with wooden tables then a fabric runner was used instead of a table cloth and I love that look, but I don't know if that is even something the hotel will offer.
  9. @@jhercule sorry, it wasn't your link it was my work blocking, but it just said the page couldn't be loaded instead of the FORBIDDEN screen I checked her out and OMG so in loveeeee!! It's like everything I ever dreamed but didn't think I was gonna be able to have!! I sent her an email to get some pricing information and stuff. Are you worried you are going to get caught??
  10. I looked online at the BHLDN dresses and they are super pretty! I am going to find a place around here that sells them. @@jhercule The link for love and lace wedding decor didn't work but I will google Did you have to pay the outside vendor fee to use her? Once you made decisions with her did she do everything at the resort as far as put up and tear down? I talked to my Fiance last night and he did not feel strongly about taking our own! @@HilaryRobin I have Carolina as my coordinator as well. She is super nice, but I have had trouble with getting her to respond on somethings. I had
  11. Thanks @@LoLoJabs @@jcook123 and @@Tagliatti01!! I feel more comfortable going with something more non-traditional but that I fee gorg in! I also feel better about not having anything nailed down! I do have my ceremony location (gazebo 55) and reception (Tuacana bar) which I hope I won't be over the limit of 70! I think with yalls suggestions I might do a balance between taking some stuff and getting some stuff from them. Do they charge a set up fee for the decorations you bring? @@Tagliatti01 your pictures are gorgeous!! Your dress isn't super beachy but the halter does make it f
  12. Hello my fellow brides!! I am getting married in October 2016 and I felt pretty good about my plans until I realized I am only 235 days out and basically just have the deposit on my day. Not related to EDR, but to any past brides how did you pick your wedding dress?? I have looked and looked but I am afraid to get something thats too big or too hot! I just ordered a crop top prom dress in white, but debating if I am going to regret not going with the "traditional" gown. Related to EDR How far out did everyone start planning their details at the resort? I have looked online and hav
  13. Hello Fellow Brides!! I have just paid my deposit for my wedding in October 2016 and I am already stressing. I have a quetsions about photographer. Do you know if I bring someone from home and they stay at the resort if I have to pay the $800 vendor fee? I have reached out to my wedding coordinator, but as many as you know it looks like everyone has communication issues. I wanted to book a photographer asap for Engagement and Wedding pictures, but don't want to be in a bind if the hotel makes me pay another $800. Thanks in Advanced!! Kim
