    Ok, that makes me feel a little better. My dress has a lot of beading and I'm worried that it might get ruined that's all. I'm meeting with the cleaning/pressing place in an hour to see what they recommend. But, I'm happy to hear you had no problems. Do you mind me asking how much they charged you for that service?

      I was wondering about make up for the big day. I'm trying to decide on whether to pay for the make up artist, or just go with the spa make up. Any comments or opinions would be great! Thanks!

        I dont know if I posted there or not yet
        Here are my photos (some) from Claudia - she was AMAZING
        Picasa Web Albums - Eden - Professional ...

        I got my hair and make up done at the Spa at El Dorado and was SO HAPPY with it!
        My Maid of Honor got hers done too and usually takes up-do's out EVERY TIME she get's them including her OWN wedding, and this was the only one she left becuase it was so well done and she loved it.
        I TOTALLY TRUST THEM there - they KNEW what they were doing.

        My dress was beaded and the dry cleaner there could not do it they said - fine. I just brought it home and paid $300 - that said, I did do a trash the dress so it was heavily soiled! hahaha.

        Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I will try to post more.
        READ MY REVIEW for a TON OF info.
        I LOVED EL DORADO and was so happy to have had my wedding there!

          On our tables (you will see in the photos above) we got them to move the large arragements of flowers FROM the ceremony cite to the reception.
          While we only have 3 I think, and we had 5 tables it was no big deal! Seriously -
          the setting there is so beautiful, you dont need much "extra".
          The idea of using the bouquets is a nice idea too.

          I must say - be picky when choosing your bouquet ... I was dissapointed with my bridemaids - they were all so tiny - while it looks classy and pretty in the photos - when they arrived I almost cried! HAHA.

          Also - a small tip
          while they dont hold a "rehersal" for you -
          go to your wedding cite the day before or the morning of and check out the wind - use that to decide which side you stand on and what side your future husband stands on -
          the wind was from behind, blowing my hair into my face and my veil ... people even commented on it and how we should have switched sides.
          So plan that ahead!

          I promise it will all work out!

            Thanks for the tips!
            I was just wondering if you got your dress steamed there BEFORE the wedding? I need mine steamed and I would rather not do it here before I leave, but, I'm concerned about having it done at the resort.

              Hi Can I ask, how many songs do we need to pick for the wedding ceremony?

              I am thinking:

              1 for walking down the isle
              1 for signing the register
              and 1 for walking back up the isle

              Do I need to pick any more?

              Do I also need to pick a selection of songs whilst my guests are waiting for me to arrive? If so how many?

                Dress I didnt steam
                I had heard they did a good job
                I just didn't need it - my dress was so heavily beaded ....

                Songs -
                We used 4 songs for while people were sitting.
                Then one for me and my bm's to walk down the aisle (used the same song for all of us)
                and one at the end to leave to
                They did a great job of music.

                  I got my dress steamed at the resort. They did a good job. But definitley get it steamed the day before your wedding. I was one of those brides very anxiously waiting for my dress to arrive. They brought it two hours late....AHHHHHH! But in the end it all worked out!

                      Thanks ladies, for answering all of my questions. I'm now at the fun stage where I'm planing out seating and decorations!
                      I haven't figred out how to decorate the reception, except that I'm bringing wedding flags and tablerunners. I'm making my own tablerunner since it's an easy project. I'm planning to connect 4 long tables in one row to fit 29 people.
                      Soooo, for those of you who know, is there a room to connect 4 long tables in one single row? I have tons of EDR reception pictures, but I can't see clearly
