El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

@@JenniferM - it really is an amazing resort. the only thing I wish was different is that the beach was nicer - and you could swim on more of it. but, that's a small thing. we were actually debating between ED Maroma and EDR, but decided for the value we'd go back to EDR (for the 3rd time in 19ish months..but who's counting...).

 

we seriously looked at islands and resorts all over the Caribbean for the June trip - all inclusive, resort only, etc. from Aruba to Jamaica to Grand Cayman. Tammy (@tammyhost) found a screaming hot deal for us at EDR, and we decided that we shouldn't mess with a good thing.

 

and I fibbed - our first look was scheduled for 2:30, not 3pm. so we had about an hour from the time we finished up in the salon, which wasn't nearly long enough!

 

 

@@AllieH Cool. I'm so glad we'll be getting there early. 

 

That's awesome! Everyone I've talked to who has been there says it's like heaven  :D

You should try out the EDR Maroma next time!  We went for our honeymoon and it was heaven!  The Royale has better food, but the Maroma has an amazing beach and a wonderful chill atmosphere!

that's what we've heard/read - but the food quality trumps the beach for my husband. he's already decided where we're eating when we're there! (planners much?! noooo)

I would be the same way if I was going back to EDR.  There are some dishes there that are just SO good!  Mmmm Lobster Lasagna!  I am dreaming about it now, haha!

Oo I'm getting so excited for the food! We are staying at EDR casitas from May 21-26(wedding on 23). Then we head down to Seaside Suites until June 1, excited for the change of resort! 

 

AllieH, thanks for the heads up on the long times, she said we can have 3 people get done at once, so that helps a lot to know to allow an extra hour and a half. 
 

Has anyone gotten their makeup done for the wedding? I'm having a hard time believing it will take a full hour for my bridesmaids' makeup. 

 

What is everyone's experience with the upgrade when you get a wedding package and the giwc upgrade for a certain mount of rooms? We'd love a swim up casita, but if we would get upgraded to it we'd rather not spend the money. Just worried if they get full what would we be upgraded to? how lenient are they?

 

Thanks and Happy Friday!!

we spent the 10 days of our wedding-moon in the swim up casita - LOVED IT. the upgrade was courtesy of our GIVC TA. she was able to confirm it for us prior to arriving at EDR. 

 

if they are full (which I kinda doubt), they may upgrade you to the infinity pool casita suite, or the infinity/swim up. but ask your TA to work that for you. 

 

I know some of the other brides had their make up done at the salon - hopefully they will chime in!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
