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 donâ€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.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
