      I am unclear too about the tipping. I guess I should find out soon since we only have about 2 months left. If I need gifts for them & how many or money for tipping instead. May have to find some brides that already got married there to find out what they did.

        any past brides have any recommendations as to what cake/flavor to order? anyone have advice as to which flowers to order? there are so many to pick from, just wondering if anyone had gorgeous flowers they would like to recommend from the resort :)

          Here's what Valeria wrote to me: "As you know I work at the company headquarters in Cancun, so I won't have the pleasure to meet you personally, but my on site weddings staff will take great care of you, promised!"

            thank you for letting me know about not meeting Valeria. do you plan on tipping or getting gifts for the onsite WC then? or do we send something to Valeria?

              Well, I'm thinking of not tipping the on-site coordinators as they are just carrying out previous plans. Since we won't be seeing Valeria, I don't think we'll bring anything for her as I'm doubtful that it would actually get to her.

                Since we don't see our off-site wedding coordinators (Monica in my case), I was just going to mail a nice hand written thank you note.

                  What about tipping staff for private mexican party and the other coordinators that help with the ceremony? What is everyone thinking about a tip or gift?

                    Hello

                    I have just had an email from my w/c at EDR to say that the chairs for the ceremony with the blue sash cost $13usd per chair, previously I was quoted $7usd, which is far more reasonable!

                    Can anyone help with prices that you have been quoted, I just am practically crying thinking of spending over $416 for 30 mins use that I then have to pay all over again for my dinner at Tucanes, surely the w/c has made a mistake?

                    Im sorry to ramble on, I was just taken aback!!

                    Annaxx

                      I thought the chairs without covers were $7 but the chairs with covers and bows were $13. With that said, if you have in writing (email) that they quoted you $7 for chairs with bows, then maybe you would have some leverage.

                      Speaking of ceremony's, can everyone please tell me what you are doing for your ceremony as far as decorations if you are having a beach ceremony?

                      1. Are you doing the hanging corsages?
                      2. Are you doing chair covers and bows (what color bows)?
                      3. Are you having a runner?
                      4. What color runner?
                      5. Are you doing rose petals?
                      6. Any other decorations (ie fans?)
                      7. What bouquet choices are you doing if doing it from the lomas site?
                      8. Any unique elements (ie sand ceremony, songs, readings, etc.)

                      I know some of you have mentioned this throughout this thread, but I am making some of these decisions right now and would like to see what others are doing. Any recent EDR brides have any suggestions as to what they would and wouldn't do again for the ceremony locations and decorations?
