El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Thank you so much for your replies on my budget "crisis". I think I'm sort of over it for now. I think I was just in shock when I added all the totals. I spent the day with my MOH and my family, so they all made me feel better being able to talk about it. My wedding is something I have dreamt about my whole life. I know I would regret not doing what I really want. It comforts me a little to know that other EDR couples are paying similar to what we are paying. Thanks again for your feedback! I don't know what I would do without all you girls!

Oh yeah, I can relate. As exciting as this whole wedding planning is it can also be very overwhelming, I know. Thank goodness for this forum!

On a totally different note, Has anyone gone with the Honeymoon Wedding Registry offered by Karisma? FI and I like the idea but not sure if it's too much of a headache.

If any of you have done it or planning on doing it, what has it been like?

We're curious to know.

 

Thanks,

I know exactly how you feel-- some days I think about the money- and it literally can make me physically nauseous. However, I have "polled" some gfriends that are getting married locally and having the traditional wedding -and they are spending that much and sometimes more on one day-- so I just tell myself that I'm getting a whole week of celebration out of it! :):)

Thanks,
I did register with honeymoonwishes.com It was easy to do. Guest can buy credit towards anything for you and FI at the resort. We just wanted atleast enough to do massage on the beach. Anything extra we would apply towards our wedding cost at EDR. We got enough to get the massages. Then you just cash out and they will send you a check or you can get it direct deposited into paypal account if you have one. It great if you don't need alot of household items and your registry is small. That is why we did it. People thought it was a great idea for the shower.

It does add up and you can go all out or keep it to a minimum and still have a beautiful wedding. We planned our wedding only in 8 months and I didn't have a budget. I did what I wanted although shopped around to keep my other costs down. We are staying 9 nights in the casita's & having a private reception as well with 16 guests including myself & FI. I have not actually sat down and figured out what we spent with everything yet. I know at the resort it was $5000 room & $1100 for our flights. The extra's at the resort was about $2000 including $500 photography fee. My photographer was $1100. Cancun Studios will give you $250 off towards the fee the resort charges to help you out towards that. I got everything we wanted and didn't go to overboard. You will get all kinds of ideas from this blog. It has been the best form of information for me. Plus you meet alot of great brides on here. I'm so glad I was a part of this. Anything you need just ask we are all here to help you with your planning or any questions. Best wishes and happy planning.

We get to the Cancun airport at 10 the day of your wedding, then we'll be staying in the Casitas too. Your wedding was at Gazebo 55, right? What time again? I will be looking for you, and I would love for the 4 of us (if we can get the boys to agree!) to have a drink! Maybe Anna can join us.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
