Hi endlesslove!


I'm excited to have found another ERC bride! 2010 will come soon enough! I've never been to ERC and unfortunately won't be able to make a site visit before we go for our actual wedding. The only information I have is what is from here and tripadvisor... and of course, pictures of previous wedding from Elizabeth Medina and Del Sol Photography. :)


Do you know what is required to actually book the wedding date? Have you been able to get the information you request when she does respond? I'm hoping she will send me a list of pricing options other than what's on the website since that is what most of my questions are about. Hopefully after that I will have some useful information to share!

Congratulations!cheers.gif My FI and I are getting married at the ERC in October this year. I have never been there either, and found it basically the same way you did! I am constantly checking for new reviews on TA - and am concerned about some recent thefts reported at the resort.eek.gif I am going to have our travel agent contact the resort with my concerns and see what they are doing about that! (I figure as a travel agent, she may lend more weight to the situation since she recommends resorts to unsure folks!! Hoping to hear a positive response soon! I absolutely love what I've seen and read about ERC, so I sincerely hope they are getting to the bottom of this!


We were able to book the wedding when we made our deposit! We are using our travel agent for all the bookings since there is a small group of us going.


Once our wedding was actually booked, I did receive more timely responses from the WC. She will email you your options (with pics and prices) for all of the details, i.e. bouquet, boutteniere, decorations, etc.


If you PM me with your email address, I can forward some of that to you...


Happy planning!

ERCbride2b, I PM'd you! Congrats to you too! Your wedding is so soon. You must be getting so excited! How long have you been planning for? October 2009 seems so far away right now but it fits best with everyone's schedules.


I saw the trip advisor reviews about the thefts, too. It does worry me a bit, but I keep reminding myself that thefts can (and do) happen anywhere. I'm interested to hear the response your TA gets from ERC.


What is the deposit that is needed to book the wedding date? Is it a certain amount of money for the rooms or is it a certain amount of money for the wedding itself? If the deposit is for the rooms, does everyone attending have to pay the deposit in order to book the wedding or just the bride and groom?


Sorry for all the questions! I just figure that it's easier and faster to get answers here than to email the WC and wait for a response. I just want to get this booked already! Maybe I need to look into getting a TA...

Hey Ladies,

Hope you don't mind me jumping in your thread but I'm also planning a wedding at ERC on 4-6-09. Noemi took a few days to get back to me also, but in her defense, my TA gave me an incorrect email address. Somehow this message was still conveyed to her and she corrected her it with me. Her initial email came to me today and as someone else shared, it contained pics of the resort, bouquets, and wedding package options. The same ones listed online.


I am also booking a very small group with a TA. No one else has booked their rooms. Many have booked their flights and the TA is "holding" their rooms. I haven't actually signed anything with ERC to officially "book" my wedding. That makes me a little nervous, however. I'd like to at least get something in writing.


I am soooo excited for this wedding. This resort looks spectacular and the overall reviews on BDW and TA look amazing.


Best of luck with your planning, ladies. Let me know if I can help.

I'm also getting married at ERC, and I'm so excited! In my experience, it does seem to take a while to hear back from the WC (Noemi), but she does eventally respond (it took 10 days for her to get back to me regarding the availability of my date). As far as reserving a date, she told me that there was no deposit or down payment required, which sounds a bit different from what other people have posted. She did email me some pictures of possible location set ups, along with a list of add-ons (it doesn't have any prices listed on it though), which was great to see.

Hi Girls!


We got confirmation for our October 2009 date :) Noemi didn't mention any deposit to book the date, just that she put us down in her agenda. Hopefully we will get more detailed information about wedding packages soon. Did anyone else read the recent thread about privacy during beach wedding ceremonies? It concerned me a little! I know people will be on the beach, but I really don't want a bunch of sunbathing people in my wedding photos worried2.gif

Here's another question for your girls. What time are you having your ceremony at ERC? Does anyone know if receptions have to end by a certain time at night? I have asked that question in a few emails but that question has gotten skipped over.

Hello fellow ERC brides! My date is set for 6/20/09...I'm so excited! Noemi (the WC) has been great to answer my questions and give some helpful information. By the looks of it, it seems she has sent the same stuff to me as to most of you. I was wondering about the deposit situation, as she hasn't requested it yet. Are most of you considering a "Symbolic" or "Legal" ceremony? I'm a little turned off by the blood test stuff. If I was to have a symbolic wedding, what's the catch? Do I need to present a marriage certificate beforehand? Good luck with the planning!!!

    • What are you doing for your wedding's road signs? so that your visitors will know where to turn to enter the area. Any pictures? I had created some road signs with a nearby signage business. However, I want to create 2 additional signs. Please provide images so that I may alter my design.
    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions. 
    • What purpose does a ring actually have? I think they look nice, but to me, wearing a ring doesn’t mean a damn thing. I’m engaged. I’m in a happy, healthy and strong relationship. And to be fully honest if you are ever in a relationship that you’d be willing to risk because of the price of an engagement ring, your partner could do better.
