I am very glad that in the end it all worked out and you enjoyed your wedding - but I'm sorry about some of the shit that happened along the road. Good for you though, for keeping it all in perspective and not letting it ruin your day.
Have you already posted pics? I would love to see them!!
thanks again for an awesome detailed review

For all of the EDR brides reading this review, I just want to say that we had a entirely different experience. I think part of this is that when I came up against obstacles I decided to avoid the situations rather than get them to do things they weren't used to, such as rehearsals. So we skipped the rehearsal which wasn't too big of a deal for us.
We had also worked out prior to arrival that we were bringing an outside photographer so there was no on-site conflict about this one and the staff was incredibly courteous to Vincent and Diego.
As for changing locations the day before, I had ready posts that they are very reluctant to make changes once you sign everything b/c in actuality you are signing documents agreeing to locations and what not. That said, I do think that could work on being accommodating to couples but given how many weddings they do I can understand to some extent their reluctance.
We also had a disappointing site visit there. They basically didn't know we were coming and wouldn't work out any of the details with us. Later I realized this is b/c it is the job of Valeria and Monica to work out details and the on-site coordinators to implement it. We had Valeria and I think that helped account for a better experience. I've heard from many brides that Monica is not organized and your review clearly reinforces that. I would suggest that future brides request Valeria.
SOOOO, Lauren, sorry that you had to go through so much hassle but hopefully other EDR brides can learn from your experience.
When do we get to see photos?

I'm also using Berman, so I'm glad to hear that if I have issues I can turn to them. They've been amazing so far.
Do you think the tiki torches were worth it at Tucanes? Were they around the area of the reception or to the path leading up to it?

I'm sure all the EDR brides will appreciate it a lot.
I also think your overall conclusion is very fair, by saying that brides who booked shouldn't worry too much (although be prepared for a few difficulties) but that those who haven't booked may want to consider elsewhere (since there are so many resorts to choose from, why choose a difficult one if you don't have to?)
