    I would be hesitant to try your own speakers or set-up, but otherwise wouldn't worry about it.
    Thanks! We are planning on using their set up. I just hope it is loud enough. I apprecaite your feedback!!

        We had a large table with about 16 around it, a smaller round table with 8-10 and a long narrow table with 10-12...

        Nice ambiance and a little more intimate than the other choice... BUT, food was much better at Las Fuentes... Not sure what we would do if we had to make the choice again. May depend on what size group you have. If it's a but smaller, there's a sort of back room that they could put you in.

        PM me your email and I'll try to send you some pics after the weekend.

          Just got back from my wedding at EDR and it was AMAZING. I should have my review up in a few days but if anyone is considering this resort DO IT!!! I could not be more happy! If anyone has any questions, let me know.

          We used the IPOD at Tuscanes and was very happy we did. You could definitely hear the music. We had our free welcome dinner at Fuentes. We had 3 long tables. The food is much better here that Cocotal but the ambiance is probaly more private at Cocotal.

          BTW greta photos Elizabeth!

            Despite everyone saying Fuentes is better for food, we are going with El Cocotal.
            I hope its okay.
            Now I cant decide between creme brulee or french style apple pie for dessert!
            Help!

              We had chocolate mousse cake for our dessert at El Cocotal (yummy). However, I did have their creme brulee on another night, and it was jasmine creme brulee. It was different tasting (good but different) and the sugar was not very hard on top. I love love love crem brulee, and if you are purist, you will not really like it if this is the flavor they serve.

              I found that the ice cream at EDR was insanely good. It's definately homemade. Does the french style apple pie come with ice cream? If so, pick that!!!!

                  EDR has a great speaker set up. When we were there, there was a reception at the white gazebo and we could hear the music all the way by the candelight dinner area, which is pretty far away.

                    Not the creme brulee!!! It was the worst we had on the resort. I don't know if we got a bad batch or what, but it was almost greenish and not sweet at all. Ew!!!

                      Good to know!
                      Sticking with the apple pie!!! :)

                      Only a few weeks to go!!!!!

                      EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

                      I really wish I knew how the tables would be at El Cocotal for the dinner - there are some people who CANT sit next to eachother, so I want to do a seating chart, but the resort keeps saying they decide the day of. So I am making about 20 different "scenarios" for seating! hahahaha!

                      ALSO! This is ticking me off
                      if you dont PAY to do EDR's Sand Ceremony (always about money right) they wont do it for you. I WISH I KNEW THIS before buying all my sand ceremoney stuff. So now I need to write my own sand ceremoney and I dont know how it will be performed and or by whom!
                      ANNOYING!
