El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

HI!! My Fiance and I are getting married at EDR in May of this year! I am super excited but stressed at the same time. We will be having about 25 people down there with us and we decided to do the free wedding! I was wondering about the dinner at El Cocotal. I hoped it would be nice enough. I didn't even think about negotiating things for the wedding. Flowers, runner, etc. Has that worked? Do you talk to Lomas Travel (I am also dealing with Valeria), or the coordinator when I get to the resort. We weren't going to do a private reception there b/c we are having a party when we get back as well. I guess I am looking for advice, ideas, experiences, etc. This website is great and I really should look at it more! :)

jjwed - i haven't tried negotiating the wedding components (flowers, runner, etc). i don't know how much flexibility there is with that. i've heard that the dinner at el cocotal is great and it's an awesome venue for one of your private events.

Help! Okay, I have 7 bridesmaids and I really don't want to spend $50 for each of their bouquets (or more). Is everyone else doing bouquets or something different? I was thinking about parasols, but wasn't sure about how that would look?

Is anyone having trouble getting in contact with Valeria? She is my wedding coordinator and up 'til now has been very good at responding to my emails. I am wanting to start planning the reception and I haven't received a response to my email(s) in a week now. OR, am I just being paranoid and need to be more patient?

I emailed Valeria Monday to ask about my bouquet and I haven't heard back either. I agree, I usually get prompt responses back.

 

A week definitely sounds like a long time. I would email her again because I would be concerned as well.

kathrat - i am biting the bullet and just paying for the bouquets. i'm using them for the centerpieces at the reception so it made me feel a bit better.

 

getting in contact with valeria has been a bit more difficult lately but i think it's because she's managing a lot of us! she just responded this morning with answers to my questions so i think she's working her way down her to do list. :-)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
