El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

I haven't been on in a while, but i want to tell everyone that they did an amazing job and everything went perfectly. I was little worried with having a destination wedding and all and how everything would go, but they did really great job! From our photography to the food to the ceremony, it was just amazing. I wish all you soon to be brides the best!!!!

Mostly everything went fantastic, but there were a couple of big issues at the reception that I will share once I have more time to decompress!

As far as music you can waltz to pretty much anything... how about "It had to be you" by Henry Conick jr,

My FI has declared that if I expect him to dance with me at our wedding, then we need to take dance lessons. As in, he thinks we should have some sort of choreography for our first dance, so we don't look silly out there. Uhm, I'm find shuffling from foot to foot and swaying to the music...

soooo first songs that are nice and slow and a good rhythm for a waltz? I have no clue...

Well first off CONGRATS!!! Can't wait I hear all the details and welcome back!

So I just got back last night (without my hubby, he had to fly straight back to work) :( Mostly everything went fantastic, but there were a couple of big issues at the reception that I will share once I have more time to decompress!

yeah, I think you can blame me for that one. I've had to escalate the recent issues I've had with Lomas to my travel agent, who contacted the hotel, and has involved the manager at Lomas. One of my issues is that my WC (Natalia) is giving me answers that are the opposite of what I was told via a chat session (and also contradicts what all of you have shared from your experiences). 

 

Needless to say, all is NOT well in the DW planning world right now.

Again, once I decompress a little, I will right a long review, but we had MAJOR issues with Lomas staff at the resort. Our offsite coordinator, Valeria, was on top of everything, not so much with the onsite staff... part of the reason I have taken so long to write a review was because I am still quite a bit steamed at the issues we had with the Lomas resort staff.

 

Also,we were told that while there might be several weddings at the resort on a given day, they wouldnt have more than one large wedding... well that's BS... we had 40 people at ours and were told it was the largest; however, there were 2 other HUGE weddings with over 60 guests the same night. Perhaps that is why there were so many errors at our reception. angry.gif

 

I'm hoping that I will eventually be able to not have angry memories of our reception, but right now, thinking about the errors really pisses me off. Need more time to decompress LOL.

 

That being said, the rehearsal dinner and ceremony were PERFECT! Cocktail hour and reception, far from it.

Oh no!!! I def. understand the need to decompress and cool off. I'm dying to hear what happened though!! I'm so sorry you had to deal with so much stress and problems with the reception sad.gif Whenever you feel up to it, please give us the details. I've been feeling confident recently because Valeria has been on top of everything, but it sounds like that means nothing, and the competence of the resort staff is everything. We have to pay our tab in full at the resort in a little over a week, so if there is anything I should know about and possibly cancel with my reception before I pay in full, please let me know!!
