    Hello.... I just realized that the post I created earlier introducing myself did post.

     

    Recently engaged in Hawaii in October... planning a site visit to EDR with future hubby next weekend. We want Nov. 5, 2011 bu we're told that only the 4pm slot is open. is that too late for a november wedding?? i hope not.

     

    please let me know if there's anything we should be keeping in mind as we go down to do our visit. I would love to do the ceremony at Gazebo 55 and then reception at Tuscanes (sp?) .

     

    Thanks! (this forum has been super helpful!)

      Hey!!  Our wedding was November 12th and it was AMAZING!  Everyone said it was the best wedding and resort they have ever been to.  I am so sad that it is all over with.

       

      4pm was absolutley perfect.... we did the cocktail until 6 then headed over to where the reception was.

            Hi Everyone!

            I'm new to this forum and very excited to see a thread on EDR!! We are having a DW there 11~11~11. We have stayed at this resort 3 times! it is the first vacation we took together and it has held a special place in our hearts since our first visit, IT IS Amazing! I have met many brides who had their wedding at this resort and everyone has always been Very Happy with everything. We have also stayed at ED Maroma ~ beautiful also! That is were my FI proposed, unexpectedly, at sunset on the beach... It was perfect :) 

            My Lomas coordinator is Carolina. We visted the resort last month and met with her and choose our location~ Gazebo 55 !! It is a beautiful location at the end of the resort. Away from the mainstream of the resort. She has been very helpful, communicating via email. Quick to answer my questions and reassuring! :o! It gets overwhelming trying to make all these plans so far away. If you have any questions about the resort feel free to ask me! I look forward to reading everyones posts~ it is sooo helpful!

              We just got back from our wedding at EDR on Dec 1, 2010 and it was amazing!  Girls you and your guests will all love this resort!  I'll be writing my full review soon, but I just wanted to give my thoughts on your question. 

              The one thing my husband and I would change is our times.  We had a 4pm ceremony(Gazebo 55), cocktails at 6pm(Health Bar), dinner at 7pm(Tucanes Bar/Pool).  There was enough time in between all the events, but the sun goes down so early so we were scrammbling to get photos done after the ceremony before we lost light.  Also, private events end at 11pm, so if we had had our ceremony at 3pm and dinner at 6pm we would have had more dancing time!  Just little details, but things you think of after!!  (we also only had our photographer-Citlalli Rico-for 3 hours so that affected our photo rush!  We wish we could have afforded to have her longer, she was so great and worth every penny!)

                Yikes!  I'm getting married in 2 weeks and also have a 4pm wedding.  I wonder if we should try and move it up a half hour or so?  I'm sure the resort could accomodate and then still have our dinner at 6:00pm.  Except that might mess up the spa appointments.  Ugh!

                 

                So excited that you loved Citalli though.  I'm using her too and very excited!!

                  Hello ladies who have already stayed at EDR - was there wi-fi capabilities at the hotel and if so, was it provided for a fee or at no charge?  Also, if you did use it - did it work properly or was it spotty?

                   

                  Thanks!

                    There is wi-fi in the main lobby only, as far as I know, but we didn't use it.  The lobby also has pay internet (3 computers) half an hour for $6US.
