El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Hey Allie, who did you fly with and do you remember how far out you booked your flights? best to book early or closer? We're going next October and are curious since flights aren't available just yet.. Thanks! Nicole  
We flew American. I think we booked about 9 months out. We have a TA who helped us tremendously! About the set up, they are doing everything for the $150. So don't sweat it before you get on site ladies. If anyone has questions about the resort, let me know!

AllieH...Glad you made it safely and everything went well en route!! Terribly sorry about your guests and the NY situation. Glad they are all ok. Question, were you able to stow your dress in a closet or did you have to hold it? I'm curious as to how that is going to work. I can't wait to see pictures, you must post ASAP!! What is the temperature there right now? I hope it stays gorgeous for your wedding day and everything goes as planned!!

AllieH...One more thing I am really curious about...I booked Beach Chapel Terrace Gazebo but after seeing that a majority of you girls picked Gazebo 55 I am contemplating a switch. If you have a chance, could you go by the beach chapel terrace gazebo and let me know what you think of the location? And pro's and cons of having the ceremony there verses Gazebo 55. I have only seen a few photos of each and I'd really like to have something else to base my decision on. I will be forever in your debt if you can do this for me. Thanks :) :) :)

Shannon, I have the dress in my closet. I'm not sure what we will do with it after they steam. I guess clear out the closet and spread it out, then forbid him from going near it lol We don't know which other guests will be in casitas to have the dress delivered to, so ill take it back. Gazebo 55 is still my choice. Chapel terrace is right off the main walkway, and rooms are close by. Plus guacamayas bar, and Jojos is close. So less private IMO. Temp is 80ish during the day, 70s and breezy at night.

What is everyones color scheme? I hadn't really put any thought into this, but lately I've been seeing a lot of deep purple and really been gravitating towards it. I thought it would look really nice with the light gray suit my FI is going to go with (something like the below). My question: is a deepish purple too dark for a beach wedding in May? My dress is kind of elegant/glam/old Hollywood and I thought purple was a regal color to go with it. I look really terrible in warm colors, so we were definitely going to go with a green, blue, or purple. Any input would be appreciated! Please be honest...we haven't picked anything yet so I'd rather know now than after we start buying stuff! Like the below are some examples I liked:

We're going with DestinationWeddings.com but she already warned us that if we use them flights will be more expensive, but 9 months out is what I was expecting.  Thanks!! Hope you two are enjoying yourselves!!

You're not too far off from me. May wedding and  I'm doing Teal, Purple, and Green... all jewel tones.. with silver as an accent if it's needed.  These are my favorite colors.  The dominate combo is Purple and Teal, since Purple and Green makes my FI think Barney... but there's still green here and there.  My motif is peacock feathers.  If you look at previously posted pictures on the board you'll see my aisle streamers and chair hangers that I made over the summer. I'm thinking Purple aisle and petals, with Purple and teal sheers on the Gazebo.  I really like Nikki's center pieces and I think I'm going to use that as my inspiration, but with a teal table cloth with purple placemats, a green runner and white rose petals.  Tall clear glass vases with petals in water, clear votives with silver tea lights (which I got on clearance after last halloween), and mercury glass votives with regular tea lights(which I'm making).  I'm also going to try and get Blue Dendrobium orchids and have a few of those scattered amidst the rose petals.  I'm debating on doing chair scarves, maybe in purple. ... of course I haven't gotten any price quotes on this yet.  So, maybe all these ideas will change when I do.  I do plan on trying to bring a bunch of the supplies with me.  The real thing I'm looking for is a cheaper sheers option... $300 a sheer is just ridiculous.

I'm sorry, I should have been more specific, I meant how did you stow your dress on the airplane? However, I am glad to know they will steam the dress at the resort. Thank you sooooo much for the Gazebo advice, I think I am going to change to Gazebo 55. Enjoy your time there!! How long are you staying?

I laid my dress down in an overhead compartment since they wouldnt cough up the hanging closet. The stewardess informed me that I was taking up too much room... I said tough! I think we flew American too and I didnt find the stewardess very friendly, but she may have just been having a bad day. The resort will steam your dress, but I thin it costs about $25.

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • 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.
