El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Yes, I happen to be discussing this with Valeria this week. She told me that if you bring any outside flowers, you will be charged the $500 fee. Also, for some reason, if I choose to display my own centerpieces, then there is another fee.

Use your bouquets for centerpieces, but insist on seeing the vases they rent toyou. Bring non flower decorations (sea shells etc) and have a friend or family put them out. The tables are really pretty even without anything, beautiful tablecloths white on ivory. Good luck it's really a beautiful resort, a lot of flowers and greenery, not bare like the other new ones. Maybe threaten like they are lucky to get people to come to mexico with all the violence. I bet their bookings are really down.

I don't think I'll be able to use the bouquets as centerpieces because I will only have 7 bouquets (including mine) and we will be having 11 tables...but, it is a good idea for others. I will try negotiating since I am bringing 81 guests.

 

Also, Does anyone know what the "main" pool is called?

We had 5 bridesmaids and seven tables, just bought 2 more bouquets for centerpieces. And you should be negotiating with 82 guests!

 

Have you seen this map? map_doradoroyal.jpg

We liked the A2 La Isla Pool but the largest is A11 Fuentes but that was at the opposite end. We arranged to meet guest as they came in at JoJo bar R6 central near A2 pool.

Is the La Isla pool the "main" pool? I think I remember that when I took a tour last year. We're designing our weekend itinerary and We're trying to figure out which pool to tell people to meet us at each day.

I like that idea of meeting at a bar on the first day! I think that is what we will do....since everyone will be coming in at different times.

By the way, did you have a favorite bar to go to? We're thinking we'll meet everyone for drinks a few of the nights at the martini lounge and then take off from there....thoughts?

I am FINALLY getting around to posting some pictures of our wedding at EDR on 12/11/08. We loved everything about our wedding day! EDR does a great job. We had 13 guests total......very small and intimate. Our ceremony was at the presidential gazebo and our reception was as Tucanes. Please let me know if you have any questions!

 

David and I were so blessed to have won a free wedding photography and videography package here on BDW!! Our photographer was Kristi Klemens of KLK photography and our videographer was her fiance Paul Bennett of Blue Sky Videos. They are an amazing couple and we absolutely love them! Not to mention, they are SO talented! Here's our slideshows from our wedding day and TTD the following day at downtown PDC and some random cenotes Kristi and Paul found for us......ENJOY!!

 

David & Kirsten's Wedding Day!

This question is for PAST EDR Brides....

Did you have your dress steamed/pressed at the resort?

If so, were you happy with the result?

 

I can't decide what to do...I'm really nervous about having the resort do it. But, I think that if I get it done at home and then travel with it..it might get wrinkled.

 

Any thoughts?

The resort did a wonderful job, don't pay get it done at home. Just make sure to have it steamed the day before so you are not nervously waiting for your dress. The bridal shop where I bought mine from did steam it after alterations but the airlines didn't have a great place for it to hang. My mom hung my dress, all opened up, in her casita from the drapery rod. It looked good but I still had the resort steam it. I changed my mind as to where I was dressing and the concierge was great, personally picked it up and brought it (by golf cart) to my maid-of-honor's suite and opened the dress up again there for me. PS: The spa where I got my hair done also did an awesome job (I was very nervous about that too).

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
