El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

I'd like to do sashes on the chairs for the ceremony but was wondering if it's cheaper to buy them on my own rather than rent from Lomas. Any thoughts on what's the most economical option?

BUY them!!!

Allie gave us this website and they are SOOO cheap!!!

 

http://www.tableclothsfactory.com

 

The one thing they did say is to make sure you get enough to cover the chairs at the ceremony and the reception as they don't move the chairs.

 

I can't WAIT to order mine, just waiting on confirmation from all my guests!!!

Definitely buy, I got them from the site above. They are about $0.60 per sash, and at EDR it's $4 per sash to rent. We also got our table runners from there, and paid about $4 per runner instead of the $15 they asked. We are only having about 25 people, so it's not that big of a deal for us to bring them down. If you're worried about space in suitcases, I recommend getting those space saver bags you can vacuum seal. That's what we're doing. And yes, be sure to get a set for the ceremony AND reception. We didn't think of it so I had to order more and pay shipping twice. I don't know your plans for the gazebo, but we're also bringing the fabric down for that. It ended up costing $40 for 2 colored sheers as opposed to renting for $300. Let me know if you want the site. Good luck!

Yes, I will definitely order from that site.  The rental prices are crazy compared to buying them.  What's everyone's opinion on the wedding cake design? I've seen brides' pics and some of the cake designs leave something to be desired.  Do you recommend going with a standard cake design or doing a customized one?

I'd like to get people's thoughts on the cake as well.  I didn't plan on having one because I heard they were lacking flavor and sorta dry.  If anyone else had a great cake, please let me know!

We are not doing a wedding cake. They were so expensive, I heard they taste medicore, and I was underwhelmed with the designs. With the private reception we get a dessert, which we chose as mango cheesecake, so everyone will have that in leiu of wedding cake. Since we did want to have the cake "ceremony" with the cutting and all that, our WC offered us a "petite" cake that's only $30. We'll do that so we can get some pictures, but it's not breaking the bank by any means. And if it's bad I won't feel like I wasted my money, since we'll still have the cheesecake.

We are skipping the Cake too b/c the cost was crazy expensive. Plus most of the previous brides commented that the cake they had was not even eaten since there was dessert with the meal we are getting. I know my FI is bummed to not have a cake but I think he will get over it I hope. When we went down for the site visit we actually got to taste the wedding cake all flavors. The Chocolate cake tasted awesome but they use Fondant and I am not a fan of it (even though I get why they have to go that route instead of butter cream). I will have to see about the 'Petite Cake' that might be a good alternative for my FI!

In case people are interested... I asked my WC about fabric types for the gazebo and these are the pictures he gave me:

 

The Organza sheers are the most popular type of fabric, these are the ones  that we offer for $150.00 USD in any other color. Organza is also use in the bows Similar to the pictures below:

?ui=2&ik=4b92fb6af2&view=att&th=13bb09af6f3c023b&attid=0.0.3&disp=emb&zw&atsh=1?ui=2&ik=4b92fb6af2&view=att&th=13bb09af6f3c023b&attid=0.0.4&disp=emb&zw&atsh=1?ui=2&ik=4b92fb6af2&view=att&th=13bb09af6f3c023b&attid=0.0.5&disp=emb&zw&atsh=1

 

The other type of fabrics is the French Tergal, this is the one that we usually use for the white sheers:

?ui=2&ik=4b92fb6af2&view=att&th=13bb09af6f3c023b&attid=0.0.6&disp=emb&zw&atsh=1?ui=2&ik=4b92fb6af2&view=att&th=13bb09af6f3c023b&attid=0.0.7&disp=emb&zw&atsh=1

 

Tulle is not usual for the Gazebos, as is placed on the tiki torches. Similar to the Organza in color but different in texture, we do not recommend it for the gazebos as we get it here in the inappropriate size for the gazebos. As we need 2 meters width/ 12 meters long at least to  cover the gazebo. It is used to decorate tiki torches or wrap around poles:

?ui=2&ik=4b92fb6af2&view=att&th=13bb09af6f3c023b&attid=0.0.8&disp=emb&zw&atsh=1?ui=2&ik=4b92fb6af2&view=att&th=13bb09af6f3c023b&attid=0.0.9&disp=emb&zw&atsh=1?ui=2&ik=4b92fb6af2&view=att&th=13bb09af6f3c023b&attid=0.0.10&disp=emb&zw&atsh=1

 

Sometimes we use Satin for the very bright colors, such as silver, gold, purple, blue or even black; satin is under request and the price is $200.00 USD per sheer:

?ui=2&ik=4b92fb6af2&view=att&th=13bb09af6f3c023b&attid=0.0.11&disp=emb&zw&atsh=1?ui=2&ik=4b92fb6af2&view=att&th=13bb09af6f3c023b&attid=0.0.12&disp=emb&zw&atsh=1

 

-Personally the Satin is my favorite... but there is no way I'm paying 200 per sheer.... I will now be shopping for satin.

    • 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.
