El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

@Stina... we're going the last week of Feb 2013. We're still trying to finalize what date will be best for us and for our guests, but thinking it will be the Friday before everyone goes home.

There are so many decisions to make in choosing a place and gettting things finalized... I am ready for everything to be in place and to start getting excited about all the fun details of planning! :)

 

It sounds like you girls have a ton going on... @TheWolferts... I'm sorry to hear that you're having to worry about your pup right before you leave... we have 2 dogs, 1 that is older, and I can only imagine trying to take care of her while trying to get ready to leave for the wedding!! I hope you find a solution that will keep your pup comfortable while you're gone and also give you some peace of mind so you can relax and focus your concentration on your wedding!!

 

-Chris

Were you talking about these types of drapes?? If so, they are $150 a piece, so $300 to make it look like the below drapes. We are doing the same draping on Gazebo 55 (same Gazebo in picture), but with different color blue sashes.

The Wolferts- I am also doing the sand dollar ornament place cards and would love to see a picture yours once you are finished with them...which I guess would have to be soon since your date is coming up next weekend! Congrats!  My wedding isn't at El Dorado until February, but I'm already trying to get a head start on all these little details.  Anyways, not sure If i want to try writing names on them or just attaching a card to the sand dollars instead.  Any help would be much appreciated!

I will post pics later this week or possibly after we get back of our place cards but we wrote "Mexico" in the middle of them, "Riviera Maya" across the top arch and "May 12, 2012" across the bottom arch. The WC said that we needed to differentiate what food each guest was having, so we are doing a dark blue ribbon/ornament string for people getting steak and an aqua green for people getting fish. We decided not to write names directly on them because we had a couple of Julie's and Ryan's and we didnt want to put last names on them either since some of my GFs will obviously not always have that last name lol. I made name tags on card stock paper with the guest's full names and table number. Then I just hole punched one end and put the ribbon through them. Actually pretty easy!

Wow Great Job!  They look amazing!  Unfortunately my handwriting is not quite as nice as yours...so I'm still kind of on the fence about writing on them.  Very nice work though!

Thanks!

 

My mom actually did all of the writing, as well as the calligraphy on our wedding invites. Maybe you could look into having a calligrapher write on them?

What kind of pens or markers did you use?  I was looking at some at Michaels, but unsure how they would hold up on the seashells.

My mom used a fine tip blue sharpie for the "Riviera Maya" and wedding date, then she had to use a brush to paint the "Mexico" because every tiffany or aqua colored paint pen or sharpie dried too dark.We did some trial runs and also used a fine tip silver paint pen, but it dried into a dark grey, so my poor mom hand painted the Mexico to make me happy with the color angel1.gif

    • 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?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
