El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Our candles (the one's that were actual candles - we had both real and battery operated) stayed lit fine. If you are worried about it, bring the battery one's and ask the wedding coordinator to add them in if the real one's are blowing out. I'm sure they'd be happy to do that.

Here's the pics I have of the beach bar. I love the outside swings. The whole area is good for pics :) The pic of the tables shows you where your guests can sit. There's also beanie bags which you saw in the other pics...

Is your table set up the "standard" one? I noticed the gold chargers, and was curious. Did you bring the centerpieces with you, or did EDR supply them? How did the votive candles hold up in Tucanes?

 

do you have any pics of the beach bar? either Guacamayas or the Martini bar were recommended for us for the cocktail hour, and I wasn't sure what to recommend. 

 

Sorry for the questions!!!!!

Your guys, are they just wear regular dress shirts and pants?... this is something my fiance and I have been discussing a lot lately, since all the summer wear suits have been going on sale.  We've looked at linen, but Todd doesn't like how it wrinkles as you wear it.  And he's afraid of sweat marks and being uncomfortable in sweaty clothes.  We've seen Jos A Bank sells wicking dress shirts and Stay Cool Suits, which are kind of like wicking.  But the shirts only come in white, not so big a deal, and the suits only come in khaki and olive- He really wants to do grey.  Plus we were thinking of doing a vest to make it a little more formal, without the added heat of a jacket.  Does anyone have any input or suggestions on any of this?

Do the bars, like Guacamayas, Jo Jos, and the Beach Bar have food?  That's my only concern, that people will be hungry and not want to wait for food.  Every wedding I've ever been to, I was always hungry come cocktail hour- and sometimes disappointed by the selection and amount of food even.   Also, were you able to ask them to do a "signature drink"?  I really like this idea... or to ask them to have more of a certain amount of liquor to make one of their own drinks on hand?  I've seen tons of really great cocktail hour ideas.  Things like two color napkins, each with fun facts about the bride and groom on them... or coasters with the drink recipe on them... even seating done by putting the name and table number on a tag attached to a straw.  But... in an all inclusive resort, I'm not sure it's worth it... especially.. and this will sound horrible and selfish.. but it's not like we'll be able to enjoy it-we'll be off shooting pictures somewhere.   I saw the picture of you on the swing- adorable by the way- did you join your group for a bit before dinner?

I know others have posted this before... but I can't seem to find it.  Can someone put of the Spa prices for hair and make up- that sort of thing?... I know there was a pdf or a link on here at one point.  Thanks.

Here you go!

I think the only way that you can actually get food served is if you pay for a private cocktail reception or if your guests sit down at one of the restaurants and order food.

I did the striped straws and some personalized beverage napkins, thinking they would be cute on the bar during the reception, only to find out that the Tucanes bar is more sunken. I think I'm just going to have them put the straws in the drinks as people order them at the reception, and pass out the napkins with them. and not do anything special for the "cocktail hour".

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
