El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

They say that it is an $800 vendor fee OR they have to stay 3nights at the resort. Does that help?

So only 2 more weeks until we leave!  :D

 

I think everything is pretty much in place with only a few more details left. The OOT bags are all finished. Of course we'll be putting them together when we get there!

I have to give props to so many posts and ideas I have seen from this website, pinterest and simple google searches!

Now, my new wedding coordinator is Martha. She states that we have to make our payment before we leave for the trip, however, I thought people stated they paid their final payment on site. I'm not sure what to do. Nervous about paying before it all happens.

 

Will post more later if I have time.

I also have our programs which we got from "FirstComesLovePrints" through Etsy. They are AMAZING and she was very easy to work worth. I definitely recommend her!

 

Since we are having our reception at Tucanes, I want the floating candles and poles wrapped with lights, but it seems like they are much cheaper if you wait to do this until we are on site, because from what I have read it's the way to go!

 

Happy planning ladies!

We don't have many decorations that we're bringing down. I bought a suitcase from Goodwill for $10 and as of right now I have the following packed in it:

-Sheers (3 different kinds)

-15 OOT Bags (Crossword puzzles, all the things I have pictures of)

-FlipFlops

-Little Gems to put on the tables for the reception

-Place Cards for the dinner

-Menus for Reception Dinner

-Koozies

 

And that's really it. I'm renting vases when I get there and using the bridesmaids bouquets as the center pieces. I'm not doing any chair covers or colored table cloths because I figure the surroundings will be beautiful enough and no one will remember this little stuff.

So I've been digging around this thread for a while now - gaining lots of knowledge and tips from fellow EDR brides. We're getting married in June 2016 and will probably have about 50 guests (reception at Tucanes). One of the reasons we picked EDR is the reviews about their food compared to other AIs. Unfortunately we won't be able to make a trip prior to June, so I have no idea what to expect for food (what they do well, what's just sub-par).

 

We really want to do family-style for our reception. I've seen people post about BBQ Deluxe menu, but can anyone vouch for the other family-style menu options?

Hello All EDR 2015 Brides!!!

 

Can anyone shed some light on packing suitcases and getting thru Customs into Mexico with Wedding Decor / Gifts / OOT Bags / Silk Bouquets (if anyone did this)....?

 

Is the total still $300 per person allowed into Mexico as "gifts"  (Items you will not be returning with).  Or has this increased to $500 per person?  Do you have to "claim" these items on the forms they have you fill out on the Plane???

 

Did people pack all their receipts?

 

HELP PLEASE!!!!   All stories are welcome!!!

I can't remember what the dollar amount was now but I found a Mexican customs page that was useful.

 

I didn't claim it on the form from the plane. I had all my receipts with me separated into 'gifts' and 'decor'. I also had a list on me that said exactly what and how much was in each suitcase.

 

We got the green light so had no issues. There was a bride on here last October who got searched and she just said it was for her wedding and they didn't care. She was in and out in 3 mins. Didn't even ask for receipts.

 

I also brought my guest list and wedding contract to prove if need be.

 

I think most get thru with no issues. Good luck

We had no problem with customs. I did have all my receipts on my carry-on, but I got the green light. I was so nervous, but i did not even get approached about all my decor, wedding dress etc. one thing I did do was wear my rings bc I didn't want to send them through X-ray and such.

 

We watched a wedding yesterday at tucanes which looked like so much fun.

 

Now, Getting married today! Fill you guys in when I get home.

I don't think the dollar value has increased. Check out this forum for more details: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/topic/4239-customs-in-mexico-declaring-wedding-stuff/

We had no issues getting through customs either. We had one extra suitcase with welcome bag stuff (well over $500). I did have all receipts ready if need be, but got the green light and was in and out of the airport rather quickly. We also didn't claim anything on our forms. Hope this helps!

    • 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.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
    • Two of my friends are going to get married next month. Out of them one is suffering from serious teeth issue. He is having bleeding gums along with jaw pain and swelling, particularly around the gums or around the jaw. Because of the teeth issue, he is not able to make the arrangements for the marriage. Is it safe to carry out tooth extraction during this period of time? How painful is dental implants during and after the procedure? Will he be able to eat food after tooth extraction? Please share your views and suggestions. Thank you!
