Hi! My fiance and I are hoping to get married at ERC in Oct of 2009. I emailed last week and am still waiting to hear back. I see that there have been a few recent brides at ERC. The pictures are beautiful! Any other future ERC brides out there? bride.gif

We're having our wedding at the ERC. We fell in love with it after seeing a wedding done there. We're getting married in 2010 though.

 

Naomi is a little delayed in responding at times. If you have any questions let me know, I asked about 500, lol.

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.

Erika

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!!!

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?
