El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

This is SOO pretty! That's awesome how you were able to photoshop it together. I can't wait until your big day to see how it turns out. I can only imagine it will be even better than the picture!!

I'm pretty proud of the collage actually... it's about as close as I'm gonna get to seeing the "real" thing.

but when I see this I think I won't miss there being flowers.   Plus, I know that I want satin for my sheers, so I need to find some bolts of purple and teal.

Those welcome bags came out super cute! Makes me reconsider trying to find canvas totes for my OOT bags :-)

Just ordered a few parasols from luna... loved how they looked in your pics- a pretty cheap and easy way to add a pop of your color! :-)

They drew up the layout while we were sitting there - I honestly didn't care about that and trusted them to put tables where they would work the best. And they did for the most part. Our table was right front and center, his mother's close by, but my family was towards the back. Oh well - that's what I get for not being specific. lol We didn't take the time to scope out Tucanes, but we could/should have!! 

 

I walked to Vitamin String Quartet's cover of Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MpqJjasrD7I

 

Unconventional, but fun and totally "me". If you like it, let me know and I can email you the file. wink.gif

 

We were there 5 days before our wedding. I'd take $200 in $1, but that's just me. We tipped room service, bellman, bartenders and some of the waiters daily. We tipped housekeeping at the end of our stay, and our concierge too. 

 

I ordered the parasols from lunabazaar.com - my husband ripped 1 of them right after the ceremony when he tripped over it (BOYS!!). I loved that the WC staff moved them to Tucanes for us, and then set them up to hide the big rip. We didn't ask to have them moved, they just did it.

So now that I'm getting all the costs in from Valeria I may have to cut our private Welcome cocktail reception.  Have any other brides just had your group meet up at one of the bars to give out the OOT bags and have an informal meet and greet?

We are choosing to use our "welcome dinner" reservation for this.

We did what Lindsey is doing - handed them out at our Welcome dinner at Cocotal. A few guests hadn't made it in yet, and we just gave them theirs when we saw them next (or when they stopped by our room).

We are also using our reservation for a welcome dinner rather than for a rehearsal dinner.

We are having a very small wedding and wedding party, so no need for a rehearsal!!

Will give out the OOT bags at that dinner.

Thanks!! I can't wait either! I've got 4 months to go and after 2 years of planning,I'm starting to get really excited. I went to do a make-up trial at ulta today. It was so much fun. But, it's a good thing I've had so much time. I have some seriously obsessive personality issues that require unreal planning. The photoshopping was only after drawing it several times.... In different color combos. Currently working on my table set ups.. Once I have that put together I'll post that too. The good side of this is that it will leave less room for error on the WC's side of things.

This is SOO pretty! That's awesome how you were able to photoshop it together. I can't wait until your big day to see how it turns out. I can only imagine it will be even better than the picture!!

Allie is right on with the rooms...in the regular rooms we had 517 and it was perfect. 2nd floor with a great view of the ocean. The candlelight dinners are on the beach there every night and everything is lit up so pretty. I think building 5 is ideal because its right beside the main heated pool where we spent most of our time while everyone was here. We are in Casita number 2922 and it is a swim up. No complaints. It's literally right across from the Casita Spa which was very convenient on our wedding day. The swim ups in the casitas are heated whereas the regular swim ups aren't.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
