The wedding reviews at this hotel are amazing and I cant wait till its my turn!!!
I hope some of you can answer a few questions for me.
I would like to get chairs with white chair cover and pink bow for the my wedding ceremony, will these chairs be moved to my reception or do I need to pay again for the chair covers and bows?
I would like to have my reception on the beach, i have 20 guests, is this possible? if so where can I have it and what is it like? I am getting married in June, I take it will still be hot enough in the evening?
Failing the beach reception I think I like the look of Tucanes, can you tell me if this is private?
I will probably have a billion other questions but thats all I have at the moment.
Thanks for your help!!!

I think we will end up having the reception in Tuscanes and get a few tiki torches and those small candles....think it wil look lovely.
What did you do for a meal? We were thinking of doing $36 set menu...have you heard if the food on these set menus are any good??

We did 3 hrs with the photographer and I think it was only $100 more than the 2hr.
Who are you dealing with at Travelly.com? Owen Mandez? When is your wedding date?

We getting married on 30th June - our 10 yr anniversary
I think it is a bit rip off that they dont allow you to use the chair coverings and bows for the reception that you paid for during the ceremony...
Thanks for the info for the meal...I think we will go with the $36 one. I am not too keen on the first course, do you think they would allow you to change it at no extra cost? I think I will email Valerie to double check.
I am so excited cant wait...less than 15 weeks to go...i know it will just fly in

Natalieann you said your wedding package was 980 for 3 hrs but I have been quoted 880 for 2 hours or 1250 for 3 hours. That is a big jump in price!!
for tucanes, I would like to get tiki torches and beach candles, how many would you recommond that I get and where would I put them?

As far as the chair covers, I really liked them at the reception dinner because the table linens they give you are very dressy, a beautiful off white pattern, not just white.
They will try to get you to order more decorations when you are at the resort and everything seems wonderful and you just say yes to all these additions. Order maybe 10 torches now and wait until you see Tucanes. You can order more after your final on-site meeting. See if you can put the torches close to the table and dance areas. They recommended we get 10 more and put them on the far side of the pools and that was a waste. I also thought the floating bouquets were a big waste and they talked us into them last minute too. But Tucanes was a beautiful location for a reception, yours will be really nice because it will be light outside for several hours and you will love the beauty of the area. Also make note, we got a $200 credit for our trouble with moving from Azul Five but they didn't make it clear that was only for the Spa services, so make sure you use it correctly. Several people in out group either didn't get it until they asked or didn't get to use it by the "rules".
Are you getting an upgrade to a casita? They are fabulous.

We will order 10 torches now......did you order any beach candles, if so how many?
Thanks for answering all my dumb questions!!!

I was just wondering for those who got married at EDR, did you pay the set up fee for the reception? What items did you bring to set up? And, did you think it was worth the cost
It seems pretty outrageous to me that they are charging for this...I would prefer to do it myself or have someone I know do it.
