    Does anyone know how many weddings the EDR performs in a day? Do they do just one wedding a day or multiple? Just wondering.........I've heard a lot of hotels in Mexico are turning into "wedding factories."

      EDR does multiple weddings a day. We got married on a Saturday and there were two other weddings. This doesn't happen every day of the week though, so you could chose an off day.

      For what it's worth, I never say another bride the day of my wedding and did not feel ignored by the WC's at all. Some of our guests went to guacamayas after the reception and said the two other brides were there, so you could run into them, but it's totally possible to feel like you are the only bride that day.

        One of the reasons I picked EDR is the travel agent assured me it was not a wedding factory. I'm getting married on a Thursday, so there is a good chance I'll be the only bride as opposed to a Saturday.

          I'm getting married on a Thursday too! I hope it won't be busy the day I get married.

            Thanks for your input. I'm sure I'll be coming to you for questions and advice since you were married there already........congratulations!

                If you go with a week day instead of a saturday, I think you will find that there is only around 2 in one day. On my day I think there is 1 other unless that has changed recently!.

                I dont think it is a wedding production line, so I wouldnt worry too much xx

                  My personal wedding review - hope this helps out some of you with some questions you have.

                  My husband and I are very picky and did have our fair share of problems with Lomas (from Faith to Monica to Valeria) but in the end the wedding was perfect. The resort is much nicer than pictures show – it really is heavenly and the grounds are immaculate. We stayed in the Casita Section and we were in 2811 – our bartender was Julio and he was THE BEST!! Our personal concierge was Alex and he was horrible he said no to all our requests and set out to make you miserable. If you get Alex I would ask to be switched immediately – everyone else on the resort are the kindest people in the world - and the planners on the resort (which are different that the ones you deal with on a daily basis) are very attentive and made sure each and every item was correct when we got to the resort. Gloria was my head planner (but there were also 2 other ladies that were there helping out the whole time – I feel horrible that I cannot remember their names) and she is amazing!! I would recommend her to everyone – she showed up at my door twice before the wedding to tell me of little things that changed and these are details I probably never would have noticed had she not come to my door! Even though there were several weddings the day of –Gloria was there every time I turned around to check and see if I needed anything.
                  The off site planners you deal with everyday are much different but if you stay on top of them, especially Valeria, and work by sending the pricelist back and forth with every conversation it keeps you both up to date and on the same page. The last 3 weeks before the wedding we had bi weekly conference calls to discuss details. Valeria is great – but you do need to be very specific and don’t feel bad about going over each detail every time you speak.
                  3 weeks before the wedding we also found out that the spots we had reserved a year ago with Monica and Valeria were never really reserved and therefore unavailable as there were 4 weddings that day. Let me say that this does NOT make a difference. I sat with another bride to be the day of our wedding getting ready and doing manicures and pedicures and it was kind of nice to talk to someone going through the same thing with you .
                  We had our Wedding in the Chapel at 3:00 a cocktail hour from 4:00-6:00 at the Gaviotas and then from 6:30-10:30 our dinner and reception at the health bar. The day was perfect!! If you have any questions on locations or staff at the resort please let me know (I attached a pic from Gaviotas which showed the sand bags). Oh, as far as the photographer – I brought mine from home and just paid for her stay (2 nights) and told Valeria that we were having a guest take pictures. No questions were asked!

                    Thanks for the review. I have some questions about the details, what type of dinner did you have, music, decor? I can't believe there were that many weddings on the same day. I am happy everything worked out for you.

                      Hi-

                      I actually did a site visit before booking EDR and Rafaela was the on-site WC who took us around. I asked her how many weddings are done a day there and she said the max was 3. The place is really large so I don't think you would really run into another wedding.
