Awesome pictures! Fantastic review!

 

Sorry to hear that the resort wasn't stellar - and thank you for sharing that with others - this may sway a decision, and if their policies and procedures are less than stellar, other DWBrides have a right to know.

 

Thank you for your honesty and

 

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Bolero actually just came with my dress. But I knew I wouldn't wear it all. However, my mom took it and made a purse out of it - which I totally love! I just purchased a satin clutch purse on ebay for cheap and my mom covered it with the lace. It came out awesome!!

Where was your welcome reception?

 

Looks like your rehersal was at ElCooctal, was it?

How was the food?

How was it in general?

Did all your guests come?

Did you do a walk through rehersal?

 

THANKS!

Awesome, awesome photos! You looked so beautiful and happy - I loved the one where you were teary-eyed. :-) And your review will be very helpful to future EDR brides!

One more question... I was thinking about trashing my dress but I/m not sure if it will be cleanable. Were you able to clean your dress after your TTD photos?

I haven't taken it into be professionally cleaned yet, but I don't think it will be a problem. In fact, the TTD shoot cleaned my dress! By the end of the wedding night - the dress hem was black! and I also had drink dribbles down the front of my dress (hehe).
I went into the ocean with my dress, and then took it into the shower to wash the salt off. By the end of that, there were no drink stains & the hem wasn't black anymore - just more of a light grey.
The only thing was that there are alot of spots that sand got into (the rouching on the body of the dress and throughout the lace in the train). But most of it I was able to get out once it had dried.

I totally recommend doing it with your dress - it was fun!

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • Please help me out, I am little bit confused in choosing the right website. As I am looking for a wedding ceremony script, I visited many websites but I found only three useful but still have doubt in choosing one. So I put a poll to determine which is the better option. Please vote and share your opinion. Thanks🙂 
    • Congratulations Kim and follow all mandatory guidelines and be safe. BEST WISHES both of you💞
    • It's so sweet, Nice idea. Perfect for a cute wedding.😍
    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂
