Any Eldorado Seaside Brides??

Recommended Posts

Room Category..

 

just a note... if your are booking a swim up room and for some reason dont like it?? Remember, the swim up room is the highest category.. so there is nothing saying your can't DOWNGRADE to an ocean view.

 

for us, we were unhappy with our swimup cause we were not there for a party, as our group was very small only 6 of us... and our room was right beside a bar so there was always people around. We asked for a DOWNGRADE and got a fantastic second floor ocean view room (much more private than a main floor suite and was probably twice the size as the swim up).

 

So if you are not happy, ask for a downgrade, we did and were very happy we did...

oh yeah, and I agree with Jen, deal once you get there... dealing with lomas is like dealing with a brick wall.. what you see is what you get no deals.. once you get there... they will work with you to make it everything you hoped for and more!!!

Ok thats awesome! I will reel and deal with them when we get there! What sort of things did you guys end up getting deals on??

 

Ok I have some more questions...

1. What did you end up using for your centerpieces? Did you like them?

2. What about your dress.. did you carry it on with you? Or have to fold and get it crumbled in the overhead things?

3. Did you have to repay for the chair bows and chairs for the reception or can they just be brought from the ceremony site and negogiate that when I get threre? They are trying to charge me twice for the same damn thing...

4. Did you have a cake? If so did you like how it turned out? And if you don't mind.. how much did you spend on it?

5. Again... I am trying to figure out if I am spending way to much on my wedding... what was your guys final costs for your weddings?? If you could let me know that would be awesome!!

 

Thanks ladies!!

Budget - the entire budget for our wedding (in mexico) as paid out to the hotel... not including the actual vacation and after qualifying for the 'free wedding' package.

we only spent $1489CND (all prices include the exhange we paid)

 

pics - 920

flowers - 192 (2 boutineers, bouquet and med centerpiece)

blood tests - 320

sand ceremony - 57

 

The day of the wedding they had put chair covers and bows on the chairs at the wedding site (no charge) it was a really great touch, but was not something we wanted to pay for.

 

if we include the upgraded room cost (for two weeks) it added another $1400cnd (much cheaper than the $2500 package if you don't get the room upgrade) so just under $3000.

 

I had mentioned before they screwed up our flowers (medium centerpiece - we asked them to be delievered to the room and they never were) and in turn gave us a beach supper in the beach gazeboo. All I asked was for my $50 (or $75 - can't remember) back.. and they don't seem to be able to give any $$ back, so they will give you ammenties instead.. since the $50 would have been much cheaper than the gazeboo supper and made up beach bed..

oh my goodness... mine would already be over that much.. wow thats a good budget!!! lol.. question though.. how come your blood tests came to 320? I was thinking they would only be 250 as the price was 125 each? And also the sand ceremony on lomas's website only says 45 dollars... oh I guess that is with the exchange, right.. gotcha now! lol.. my wedding seems way more expensive than yours so far Nicky... but I am not doing the free wedding thing.. so already my silver wedding package is 2500....

I also forgot to tell you ladies that on sat I am going to try on my dress for my mom and sister... and we are taking some pics!! So I will finally be able to post some of them for you to see my dress!!! So excited!!

 

I thought of another question too.. when you guys signed your marriage certificate... did you use your maiden name or your new name to sign ithuh.gif

the reason we kept the 'wedding' costs so low is we had lots of other expenses... our actual holiday (2 weeks) I covered the cost of my parents (1week) and the AHR. All costs come out of our pocket, so we didn't get anthing extra, which worked out fine for us, I wouldn't change anything!!

 

p.s. I just sold my wedding dress last night. bought it for $550 (killer sale - regular 1300 I love ebay!) and sold it for $650

 

very exciting about the dress... I bet your smiling just thinking about it!!

 

marraige certifiacte - you sign your madian name as you have not formally changed it anywhere.. once your married you just have the option now to take his name, combine or whatever...

Ok Guys, I am back and I have to say the EDSS is the most incredible place to have a wedding! I can't wait to share some pics, and tell you the ins and outs of everything.

 

The main thing is DO NOT STRESS ABOUT THE DETAILS UNTIL YOU GET DOWN THERE!!! You can arrange everything much cheaper with the most incredible wedding coordinators!!! They are fantastic, wonderful, and go above and beyond what you pay for. I can't believe it is all over, but i feel like i had one of those weddings that only exist in movies!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
