El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Hi Brides!

 

Does anyone have any experience with bringing your own fabric to drape over the ceremony structure at gazebo 55?  The Coordinator said the fabric needs to be 45ft x 5ft.  I havent been able to find that online but i feel like i could buy it for less than the $200 rental fee.  Is anyone here selling it?

 

Thank you!

Quick question for previous brides.....did you tip the wedding coordinator and her help individually or did you just give the onsite coordinator the tip and if so how much? Just curious who all needs to be tipped :)

This is what I'm using a 54"x 10yd organza wrap for mine... but I also considered this

and

both companies have a lot of variety.

Hi)

My wedding coordinator told me that sheers for the gazebo have to be 12 mts long x 1.5 mts wide.

It was hard to find organza of my wedding colors. So I used http://www.tulleshop.com/Wholesale-Apple-Green-Organza-Fabric-p/310009.htm

http://www.tulleshop.com/Wholesale-Baby-Maize-Organza-Fabric-p/310002.htm

Colors of the sheers that i received were slightly different from the colors on these pictures( green-darker, yellow - much lighter), but they were still very nice.

Also I've found on ebay a very nice seller dreampartycreation

I ordered chair bows from them( very nice quality, love them); they also have a nice selection of organza bolts. However, their bolts are 50" wide(((

 

Hope this helps)

We have excitedly signed our contract for March 29,2014! We have reserved Gazebo 55 and Tucanes (but may end up with too many people for Tucanes).

We are booking our room block now and have a few questions. Right now we are going to hold 40 rooms but aren't sure which room types to hold. We have 20 rooms in the standard "Jacuzzi Jr. Suite'. For the remainder are the "Luxury Jacuzzi Jr Suites" the renovated rooms in Buildings 1-5? Are they that much better? We aren't sure if we should do those, or ocean view, or ocean front. I think we are going to do 10 swim ups as well as some of our guests tend to book higher end rooms.

 

We are going to stay in the Casita side. We have a GI travel agent, do you think we will get upgraded? I know things are based on availability but should we just book the standard Casita and hope for a swim up or does it seem they usually upgrade the bride and groom?

 

Thanks so much!!

We had a lot of our guests book the jacuzzi jr suite and when everyone arrived they all got upgraded to ocean front rooms, which was an awesome perk. We stayed in a swimup casita for the free wedding package for 10 night and our TA got us that upgrade for free then we received another upgrade when asking where our room was for an infinity swimup, but we did not want that because we didn't want to climb the stairs, if we had a few to much, lol!!!!
