El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

We opted to pay for the carrot cake (size was for 6 people) and I am really glad we did it. Yes, it was expensive and was barely eaten but I cannto imagine not having done the traditional cake cutting and feeding each other. Some of the pictures taken during the cake cutting are my favorite from the reception, so I am glad we got the cake.

I asked about red velvet and they said no problem, but is it worth $85 for a cake for 6 people?? I am sure that would feed more than 6, but I'm just not sure it's worth it......especially if it's not good thatswck.gif

Thoughts from those of you who have been there and done that??

They had kareoke, Michael Jackson impersonation night, tequila tasting, djs and live bands. Even the night of our wedding, once the reception got shut down at 11pm, we moved the party to the disco and I rocked my wedding dress too!!!

Ok, this makes me feel better too, disco it is then!! thanks!

Our WC quote me $75 to put two sheers over the Gazebo!!! WTH!!! I am only doing a Vow Rnewal which was advertised as free. I was going with the Pearl Wedding Package at first then change to a Vow Renewal since it will just be my huband and I. Well now it's " We no longer offer a Free Vow Renewal". But it's still being advertised on their site mind you!!!! AT the bottom it clearly states for bookings made after Jan 2012 and beyond. I have been corresponding with them since February!!They will try and nickel and dime you for every little thing. It is so aggravating!!!! Uuuuggghhh!!

Our daughter didn't think she really wanted the whole cake cutting/feeding thing, so they just used one of the desserts they had at their private reception and the pics turned out really well.

I was told $5 per person (for both) is the standard but depends on quantity of decorations. We are looking at 40 guests so it adds up.  My travel agent that has worked with the this resort told me that if you have one of your guests help with the decorations you bring this can avoid the fee all together. Not sure that I want to ask any of my guests to do that though.

It's been my understanding from recent brides that they do not allow you to do that anymore, and my WC told me that would not be an option, unfortunately. sad.gif

Mine just told me that it wouldn't be a problem if I wanted someone to set up the place cardholder but I am not sure if that applies to the sashes which I decided to buy I found a great deal I couldn't pass up 200 for $20 instead of renting for $4 a sash!

Darcy that is a great deal!!! where did you find that?....

 

also, on the cost for decorating... I figure the amount that I will save will far out weight the amount they would charge me per item, so $5 per person or $150 for set up is still way better than say.. oh .. $200 per sheer... at the whopping cost of $1000 for 5 sheers!!!. ... it's a charge I'm willing to take, and since I'm going to have to pay for it.  I'm going to get everything I possibly can on my own to throw into that set up fee.  When I'm done, I plan to add up all my own spending + set up fees.. and then see the true savings from ordering ala carte.

That is an excellent point :) Plus then you can always try and re-sell all the decor your bring.

    • 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.
