Hi ladies

I didn't really haggle on anything extra, although I know a lot of people have. I was considering doing the wooden runner, but decided against it once I got there. Since we used the iPod station in both locations (cocktail party and reception) they did one for half price - fine by me. I wanted my planning and time there to be as stress free as possible, and by this point the few extra $$ weren't going to make much difference to my already-blown budget :)

We used the free supper at El Cocotal as our 'welcome' supper. We went with the menu that had carmelized chicken or beef tenderloin as the main entree. Everyone really loved the food and the service was great!

Our reception supper for the wedding was menu 3B, which gave you a choice of chicken, beef tenderloin or mahi mahi. The food was amazing! Everyone raved about it for days! Also, while the reception was going on, I decided that I wanted a bottle of champagne for every table (there were only 3). They did this and just charged it to my room! So even last minute details are possible!

As for music, we did consider a DJ, but ended up going with the iPod. Our group was rather small (20 people total) and I think the DJ would have been too much. The iPod worked out just fine for us! We ate at such a leisurely pace that there really wasn't that much time for dancing! We ended up at the bar later that night anyways.

My biggest stresser about the whole wedding was my TA. She didn't even reply to half of my guests, she refused to reprice the package when she told me originally it was possible, and then could miracuously offer a better price when I told her my guests were booking online, as it was cheaper. All of our guests were there for 7 nights, and most paid about $1800 airfare and tax included.

Good Morning Everyone!

 

I just picked up the magazine, "Destination Weddings & Honeymoons" and there is a short article about a wedding that took place at EDR in 2008. It was a beautiful wedding and had some great ideas that I thought I would share with you all:

 

For Party Favors: The family went into Playa de Carmen before the wedding and picked up maracas. I thought this was super cute! You could do a lot with them and you wouldn't have to worry about getting them down there since you got them in Mexico.

 

For Escort Cards: The bride got sand dollars and put everyone's name on the sand dollar and table number and displayed them in box filled with sand. (Is anyone else doing escort cards?)

 

Bring a Polaroid Camera for the reception, which I thought was super cute and their photographer implemented their photos with the Polaroid photos.

 

Well I hope this helps! Have a great day!

Family Friendly Resorts nearby for guests who still want to bring kidshuh.gif

 

So we picked the EDR due to the fact it was ADULT ONLY...now I have people wanting to bring their kids and are asking about nearby resorts....I know my TA can assist with this, but I wanted to know if anyone else was having to deal with the day passes etc...for those who insist to bring their kids. Any advice would be great!

 

Thanks!

I did have one person angry at me for picking an adults only resort. I tried to play it off that we picked this location because of the better price (i told her kid friendly was more!) and then that we really wanted everyone to have an adult romantic vacation of their own. I said, 'oh you wouldn't want to drag him all the way to mexico adn have to buy him passport anyway!' It was only one couple that it affected so hopefully it wasn't too bad.

 

I think I agree about the Ipod. I have the classical music for the ceremony and then the ipod for dinner right now. I didn't do a apckage for the private dinner but picked and chose my salad, entree and dessert. I would love any photos please EDR bride!!! :)

Ok so my travel agent is recommending May over February/early March for me because she says the prices are better. But she is quoted me a complete package (air/hotel/insurance) $1200 for 5days 4 nights. I said i was hoping not to go over $1500 for a week trip for my guests and she says that will be hard at the el dorado. I have read of people getting better prices can anyone let me know what prices they are getting for a week and what time of year it is in?? Thanks bunches!!

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
    • Wow.... it looks like I need to add some things to my bags ..#goals Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
