El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

I am going with Caribe Photo ~ I did some checking and liked what I saw. I was able to find some other reviews as well and they were all good!

And budget wise, it fits!! 

 

We are also having the BBQ for our Wedding Dinner & reception! I've been working on the details with Carolina this week...It's much harder than I thought!

Our location is at Gazebo Fuentes ~ We visited last November and I really don't remember how that location looked... But I'm sure it's great!

 

We decided to do a Welcome Dinner instead of Rehersal Dinner...it will be at La Isla. Carolina sent the menues and we choose what we wanted ~ an App. a soup or salad, two courses, and dessert!

 

I emailed her my flower choices and ceremony decor for Gazebo 55 :)

 

so far so good with the plans!! getting very excited!

 

24 guests are booked!

Beekamn Bride -

 

I am also getting married at EDR on 10/8/11. We are doing the group dinner Friday at Coctol and the beach BBQ after the wedding at Tucanes.

 

What time is your wedding? What location?

 

We are at 5. Carolina has been great to work with.

 

I think we have around 36 coming down.

 

Nice to "meet" you!

Angi - you are from St. Louis too? How random is that? I wonder if any of our guest will know each other?

 

I have not been to EDR. We have some friends who have been and loved it. Hoping that our choices pan out :)

 

Are you going down on Tuesday the 4th?

HI!

Nice to meet you to! We are actually from Mascoutah, IL~ just on the far edge of the metro east! Our wedding date is November 11th, but I wish I could say it was in October. I am getting pretty excited! You will love EDR! We have stayed there 4 times in the last 4 years, actually once was at EDR Maroma. It is very nice resort to and on a beautiful beach. It is were my FI proposed. SO, EDR is a special place for us and that is why we choose it for our DW. We have had both friends & family go down and all absolutely loved and and have sinced returned as well. It is a good choice. We are staying in the casitas~ they tend to spoil you over there on that side of the resort. ;)

Our ceremony is on Friday, so we will be arriving on the previous monday. Are you doing a civil ceremony or legal??

I think I have most of the plans, extras, etc. figured out with Carolina....kind of still in that process. The little things sure add up fast!!

 I emailed the airline asking about their Bridal dress carry on policy ~ I'm alittle nervous about that. Still waiting for a reply from US Airways. My dress isn't that big, but does have a bit of a train that makes it kind of bulky on the bottom....

I hope all of your plans are coming together. I have been to EDR during the sametime that you are going and the weather was nice! woot2.gif

So Exciting!

I'm sure we will run into each other! 

We are at the Presdential Gazebo then BBQ on the beach where the white gazebo is. 

We have a DJ and dance floor so I think they are trying to get us as far away from the regular disco as possible.

We have 32 so far!

Our dinner is at La Isla on Friday night.

 

Getting Close!

I was all set to do OOT Bags, but then after looking at the costs for the bags and items... we decided to put the $$$ toward a group activity. We are doing a Catamaran Snorkeling trip the day before the wedding. I ordered some cute beach themed photo albums and a candle for each couple to receive at the welcome dinner. Less to carry and worry about when we get there...My FI was all for this idea instead of bags ;) so, it made him Happy!

For OOT bags I am doing 20 oz bubba mugs, advil, hand sanitizer, sunscreen, lip blam with SPF and then a variety of random fun things like playing cards, frisbees, etc.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
