Any Eldorado Seaside Brides??

Recommended Posts

I thought I would just start this thread and see if anyone else has either had a wedding there or will be having your wedding there next year, as this is the resort I am confirmed at! I tried at the Azul Sensatori but my wedding date wasn't available.. thought it must have been a sign!

 

But I fell in love with Karisma's weddings and wanted to stay with one of their resorts! Luckily this resort was available! So I am booked.. come chat here if you are a bride going there or have any tips and ideas we can share!

Hi There, i am an EDSS bride too... most brides seem to go with Royale, but I decided on Seaside based on the beach and the smaller size of the resort... I have talked with people who have been there, and it has great reviews...

 

I will definitely post a full review when i return to help out any future brides!

Thats great! I look forward to your review... so far I have read some good things about this resort.. I know it seems like everyone has chosen the Royale.. but I too loved the beach and smaller feel of this resort! So are you planning on have the beach/ beach gazebo wedding? Have you also chosen a spot for a reception or dinner and dancing? I haven't really started any of my planning yet, I just got my date confirmed yesterday so!

We are having more than 30 people, so we have to go private reception on the beach (which is exactly what we want anyways). It is getting expensive, particularly since we are renting a tent, but it will be beautiful! We are doing beach wedding, beach reception, and likely a cocktail party before hand... How about you guys?

I'm thinking at the most we will have maybe 20 people.. which most of them would be our close families... which is totally cool with me.. We are doing the beach wedding with teh four wooden posts and colored fabric.. I love that look! I also wanted to have a dinner reception thing right on the beach.. so I have to find out more about that.. have you already decided on those areas or? Are you planning on bringing centerpieces or just whatever the resort will put on there? Also what about favors? Are you putting them on your dinner tables? Do you know where I could find sandalwood fans that are personalizable? I found a couple of websites that do this but none that ship to Canada!

I'm not getting married at Seaside Suites (although I would love to if it was in our budget) but I'll be there in about a month and a half for our honeymoon. Let me know if you want pics of anything or if there's anything you'd like me to check out for you!

Thats so awesome of you to post any pics you may take of the resort! The more the merrier! I was wondering if maybe you could check out the beach and let me know if they have those huge sandbags in order to rebuild the beach.. I've heard something through the grapevine that there may be those there... if you could check that out for me that would be great!

 

Edssbride09.. which wedding coordinator are you using? I am using Valeria and she seems very good so far! Are you having a reception and dance anywhere? I haven't really got into all the details of it yet, but thought I would check and see where you planned on having all of yours...

So do you have your wedding dress already?? Also are you doing a TTD session, and are you using one of the approved photographers? I was thinking I wanted to do a TTD session, but thought I would like to wear a cheaper wedding dress for that instead of using my nice one... what is your take on this?

Hey Tracy, Sorry didn't mean to ignore your last post to me, oops! I am now subscribed so i won't miss any more!

 

So we are renting a tent, and a dance-floor. Since we have more than 30 that is our only option, but happens to be exactly what we want! I am using Carolina for my WC, she seems great, i actually need to get back in touch with her since i am in a bit of a wedding planning lull lately...

 

We are not using one of their photographers, though i almost did... it just depends what you want. I didn't want to spend a fortune, but i wanted all my pictures (1 of the options doesn't give you them), I also wanted more than a couple hours, and booked with moments that matter photography. They are actually from Calgary, moving down to riviera maya (They are on this forum all the time!), and they were really reasonable, figured it was worth the $500 fee to the resort to have someone that has an interest in taking amazing photos! Anyways, i thought the resort photogs were good, but the options i wanted were too expensive, i felt like i was getting ripped off!

 

I am not doing a TTD, because we are leaving the day after the wedding! I would have loved to do one, and if i did, i think i would have just worn my same dress... it would have been fun!

 

Oh, and i think most of the stuff at the resort is ridiculously overpriced, so centerpieces are definitely something i shall make up beforehand... I am also using fake flowers (i was quoted $25/calla!).

 

What are you planning? How many guests?

    • I recently was married at Las Caletas and had Tom Moks for our wedding photographer. I stumbled upon his work on Instagram and was captivated by the colors, authenticity, and ease of his photos. Each couple looked stunning and the moments they shared looked so passionate and pure. After reaching out to Tom, via email from his website, he responded a couple days later and we discussed his availability for our wedding date. I had to have him! Before I pulled the trigger and finalized down payments though, I decided to research some more and check out his reviews just to be safe. I came to this review thread and was so disappointed when I read about what brides were saying about their experiences.  I had it set it my mind that Tom would be our photographer and felt confused and scared to move forward with him. I had said from the beginning of the wedding planning (and heard from many previous brides) that photography is perhaps the most important money you will spend during your wedding planning and to not be frugal. Cautiously and anxiously, I decided to give a shot, fingers-crossed, and go with Tom. What I can tell anyone that stumbles across this page, like I did a few months ago, was that Tom was without a doubt the most incredible, talented, kind-hearted, genuine, hardworking, genius creator and capturer I’ve ever met or witnessed! From start to finish, Tom was honest, helpful, and easy going!  We decided to go with the package that gave us the opportunity to do a “Couples Shoot” before the actual wedding day (we decided to do this instead of traditional engagement pictures back home in Chicago as we loved the historic beauty and colors of downtown Puerto Vallarta.) Before the shoot, Tom and I had several phone conversations, in which we discussed all the logistics and details to the shoot. He answered my questions, gave me honest and real responses, and I told him we’d follow his lead. We chose to trust him and not overthink or plan out what we wanted. We trusted him to guide us and deliver amazing photo. And he did JUST THAT. I typically HATE taking pictures and feel so uncomfortable the second the lens is pointed in my direction. But Tom made this experience not only doable, but enjoyable! He made me feel beautiful, he made me feel comfortable, he made me feel amazing!   If you’re looking for someone who won’t be honest and candid with you, if you’re not able to take constructive feedback, if you’re not willing to laugh at yourself and your awkwardness, if you’re not willing to trust his process and let go of the control, Tom Moks may not be the photographer for you.  If you’re looking for photos back the next day or even next couple weeks, Tom may not be the photographer for you. Just know, he is an artist who is capturing moments that will last a lifetime. There should be no rush for that. I was MORE than happy waiting a couple of months for my photographs because they were the most stunning and incredible photos I’ve ever seen of myself and my husband. It was worth the wait.  I cannot thank Tom Moks enough for the work he did for my husband and I. He was present every step of the way and went above and beyond to capture each moment. I genuinely will miss him and hope you all get to experience the same feeling we did with Tom as your photographer!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
