As what Shannon said, it doesn't make it any cheaper to put 3 in a room. You still have to pay all of that money and then share a bed with someone. Two of my girlfriends made a deal that they would room together and then if one gets a boyfriend before the wedding she would have to give the other the $400 they charge extra for a single room. Would you believe my friend Angela found a boyfriend, moved in with him, and are now looking for engagement rings in less than 4 months! Needless to say she forked over $400 to my friend Amy but couldn't care less since she's in loooove :).

Im sorry, but I am still confused about something.

 

When I got my draft of choices on a spreadsheet from Valeria, for the reception she wrote "how many" of each, next to my meal choices.

 

So, Do people have to decide before coming which of the two menu items they will eat?

 

When do I pay for all of it, at the beginning or end of the stay at the hotel?

 

Thanks!

We didn't choose ahead of time. Everyone picked after we sat down for dinner. But, things could have changed. I know it's a shocker: "EDR changes their policy!" Wouldn't be the first time we've ever heard that, if it's the case.

To clarify this a bit, Mandy did have to choose which 2 entrees were to be served, but didn't have to say how many of each. The night of the wedding dinner there was a menu and the guests chose which of the two pre-selected entrees they wanted. Is your dinner the "free" one or are you talking about a private dinner? It might be handled differently with the private dinner.

Regarding paying, everything had to be paid for 30 days before the wedding.

I have a question for past EDR brides about the videographer. We are getting married at Azul Sensatori. We are already paying to bring our photographer in and were thinking about using the resort videographer. Does anyone have any feedback on their work? We want something that will show the highlights with maybe some small details of the wedding and resort. Any input is greatly appreciated!

Yes, we will be there at the same time! We are getting married at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday the 24th at the Presidential Gazebo. You are welcome to come by and take a peek! What gazebo did you pick? Can you believe how soon it will be here?!

I had an outside photographer and didn't have them do the video. My brother in law video taped the ceremony & reception. Then my friend edited it and put music in it and it turned out great. This way we have long version of everything and a shorten version which was edited. I didn't hear anything good about the photographer on site at EDR so I don't know if they use different ones at Azul or not. I don't know about the videographer though. Sorry, not too many brides went with the resort when I was planning for May 08.

I am so excited! It seems like I've been planning for this forever and now it's right around the corner. I am getting married on Saturday (26th) at 6:00 in the Gazebo Fuentes. I will definitely come by and take a peek at your wedding. I am sure I will see you around the resort, how long will you be there? It's pretty easy to spot me, I am 6'1 with blonde hair and Gavin (future husband) has a couple of tatoos. How would I recognize you other than obviously coming to your wedding?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
