El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

So I'm about to put my deposit down for El Dorado Royale :) Now do most people use travel agents when booking their stays? I just want to make sure my family and friends receive decent deals when booking rooms. What is the best way that you have found to do this?

Yes!!!! Not sure if you are American or Canadian but Canadians book with a TA and it's with an operator that coordinates a hotel/flight combo and Americans book separate but use someone like Wright travel whom are top GI certified agents with Karisma and can negotiate great rates and promotions for you!!!

@@kfracassi - yes absolutely get a travel agent. Pick a GIVC Karisma travel agent to maximize the perks you get for your group. @@kmk2016 says, if you are in the US, Wright Travel is a solid partner for your destination wedding. You can contact them through the link in my signature. Tell them Allie sent you!

Thank you @@AllieH and @@kmk2016 . I just emailed Wright Travel Agency because I am from Chicago. Should I hold off placing the deposit then until I hear from the travel agency?

@@kfracassi Congratulations!  I'm also a Chicago bride, I'm getting married at the Generations Riviera Maya (which is connected to the EDR) on April 25.  

 

I'd also recommend checking out Legacy Travel - my travel agent is Nicki Squittieri, and she's been amazing to work with!  I wish I had called more than one destination wedding travel agency before committing to one, you can often get deals and perks directly from the agency or negotiate for some things based on the details you get from them.  They have a local office, as does Wright Travel, but you end up working with your travel agency so much more than you'd think, and you want the peace of mind that you're getting the best service (and deals) possible!

@@ChiTiff, I was actually planning on Generations because my fiancees brother was going to bring his two kids, but now we have only adults going, so we were able to decide on EDR. I have the money for the deposit, but I'm waiting until I hear from a travel agency now. I just hope I don't lose my date.

@@kfracassi You can always put down your deposit with the resort for the date if you're worried about losing it, and find a travel agent later. :)  One of them will be able to help you.  I lost my preferred location (I originally wanted to get married at the pier, now we're doing it at the SkyDeck) because I waited just a couple hours too long, so get your date booked at the hotel!  Good luck!

If you don't hear back from wright tomorrow , submit your date but let them know you will be working with wright travel. That way it's tagged under them and you are privy to any bonuses!

Hi ladies,

 

Did anyone use the Coast Bliss decoration package? I am going to go with the Costal Bliss decor for the reception tables but I am not sure if the price is worth it for the ceremony decoration since its only 20 minutes. I am trying to come up with alternative ideas for ceremony decoration. We are getting married at the White Gazebo on the EDR side. Let me know if you have any thoughts. Thank you!

I am researching photographers, and I was originally going to go with Samuel Luna, unfortunately, he is no longer doing end of the year weddings :(. So he recommended Playa Weddings. I am also researching Sarani because I know many of you have raved about her. The prices are so expensive though. How long does everyone book photographers. 6hrs? 9hrs? I'm not sure how much time is necessary. I have no problem splurging on pictures since we will be in Mexico, obviously, and we will be saving money in other areas...

    • 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.
