El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

This would not work at EDR, or at least I think it wouldn't.  EDR is quite large and the resort it self is quite a distance away from the gates.  At the gates they have a check in, and only vehicles on a list are permitted in and out of the gates.  So, so they would not be able to meet you at the front lobby where other services come in and out.
Just to clarify, brides have reported that they met vendors at the gates of their respective resorts to avoid charges (not necessarily the lobby). I'm not sure about EDR, but it might be worth finding out whether this is a viable option if a bride is looking to save.

yup - what everyone says is true. and you won't want to chase those down on your wedding day anyway.

 

if you have a guest staying off property who wants to bring the flowers, that may be an option - but I'd say it's a long shot.

 

if your heart is set on fresh flowers, you are somewhat limited and need to get them through Lomas. I'm not even sure if they will approve an outside florist - I recall hearing from a recent bride that the only outside vendors they will let in, even with the fee, is photographers. 

 

You can talk to your WC about smaller bouquets, or less expensive flower types. Either way - as long as you stick with what they have available, it'll turn out beautiful.

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)

Does anyone know if there are additional costs for private events other than the food itself? Is there a setup pp fee, a flat private event fee, or something of that nature? We're trying to get a better idea of what costs will be.

The event is the cost of the food. If you bring your own extra decorations, linens, etc., then there is an additional fee to set up those items. (if you rent or purchase items from them directly then it is just that fee, no additional setup)

 

This fee is decided by the local wedding coordinator on site, and usually will vary by the amount of work that is required to place all your decor and the number of guests. (but a good rule of thumb is plan for about $5/person....and usually the maximum has been about $250)

Does anyone know for the BBQ menu that is offered for private events, are all of the items listed included or is it pick and choose? So for example will we need to choose to meats and two veggies, etc.

Hi Jennifer,

 

I don't know for certain, but I believe they serve all of the dishes. It's a great question to ask!! Will you keep us posted on the answer, if one of other EDR brides doesn't have it for us? I'd like to add that to the official thread info.

    • 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.
