El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

@@SoontobeMrsP2014 - Wow!! Your wedding is so soon!! That RSVP is super last minute! Do you have everything ready? Anxious? I know I am! We have a week and a half before we leave for the resort!

 

Yeah I was not happy about that addition lol. But oh well, it is what it is. I am SO anxious! We're still finalizing our DJ list, getting our stuff ready to take down, and combing over our spreadsheet with a fine tooth comb. Also stalking the weather like it's my job! Even though it's anxiety-provoking, I'm so excited. It's going to be such a good time with our family and friends. This whole thing has been so low-stress for us, it's been the best wedding planning ever.

 

Are you November girls excited?!

We can't wait to get down there!! It will be kind of a relief I think, to be in the execute phase and not the planning phase anymore!

ick!!! I hope the forecast is wrong (usually it is...). if not, take some amazing rain photos and make the best of it. I've heard it's good luck if it rains on your wedding day.

Hi ladies-

 

Is anyone doing any type of group activities? Most of my guests arrive on Thanksgiving which leaves us all day Friday. We have the rehearsal dinner that evening but would like to do something fun with everyone that day. Does anyone have any ideas? Some of the excursions are a bit time consuming. 

 

Thanks!

You guys can do the bike tour and the green house tour. Both those do not take too long and they are on the resort so if you need to make it to something you can just leave. Or you can do snorkeling or horse back riding at the resort as well, I believe. There is also swimming with the dolphins at the Maroma generations.

- Invite your guests to all play volleyball, soccer, bocce ball, etc. .

- Get everyone together for a white night and meet up at one of the resort bars after the rehearsal dinner.

- Arrange a photo scavenger hunt....everyone brings their digital camera/iphone, you have a list of things to find on the resort. Ideas: photo of someone riding a bike, swimming in the pool, a wooden lounge chair, a bird, a pink/white/yellow flower, iguana, resort golf cart, photo with a bartender, a reed roof, a hammock, a white gazebo, a Peso coin, etc. (there are lots of great lists online) Give your guests/teams 30/45 minutes and then meet back up at a bar to compare photos and adventure stories!

ARE YOU??  What time are you getting married?  Our ceremony is at 4pm at Gazebo 55 and then reception at 6 at Tucanes.  I am so happy to hear about the weather.  I was really freaking out a bit :)

Hi Ladies! My fiancee and I just returned from EDR on Sunday and had a fantastic time (we went to the BDR to plan our April 2015 wedding).

 

The weather was gorgeous, and it was originally supposed to rain but didn't. Make sure to take a sweater or a pashmina because it got a little chilly at night and in the early morning. Also, make sure to take some bug spray for night. I got at least four or five bites the last night we were there at an outdoor bar.

 

@@kamelia054 - For activities, there were a bunch of people kayaking close to the beach which looked fun. The kayaks are provided by the lifeguard stand on the beach and there are only two or three so a big group couldn't do it all at once. We met a couple who saw some ocean life (fish and jelly fish mostly) so snorkeling would be fun too.

 

They were doing the greenhouse tour a 9 am three times a week and I didn't get to do it but plan to do it during my wedding with our guests that want to join. 

 

@@murmel - the photo scavenger hunt is such a great idea!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
