Did Valeria contact you to ask you about things to finalize or did you have to reach out to her? Since we've picked the location for the ceremony, are having the "free" wedding reception at El Cocotal, having a Welcome Mexican cocktail party the day before the wedding, and having a private reception for the cake and dancing after the free reception, what else do we need to do? I don't want to get down there and get all stressed w/ what we have to plan! Yikes! I hope the resort knows the drill well enough and will take care of everything for us. We can't wait to hear your review!

I too am working with Valeria and she is great. She is however more reactive than proactive so you should go through a standard wedding checklist and see what if anything you might need or want. I just did my floral order since some include orchids and those have to be ordered 2 months in advance.

I think if you layout as much as you can in advance, the hotel does enough weddings that hopefully they will be able to handle everything smoothly. But IMHO, I'm not expecting them to go above and beyond with additional things that we not discussed in advance.

It should be great though!!!

It depends on what kind of arrangement you are getting them in. For a boutonnière it's the same price as a rose. But for a bridal bouquet of all cymbidium orchids it is $250, while all roses is $50. For our cocktail centerpieces I got quotes for just four roses in a small vase wrapped in a palm leaf and for the same with a couple of orchids. It was $25 for all roses and $35 with orchids.

In all fairness to Lomas, my experience has been that outside of Hawaii, orchids tend to run pricier than many other flowers.

Hi everyone!

We got married at EDR in March 07, and while I can't help out with the outside photographer issue I can say that the resort was more than accomodating to all our requests. I dealt with Faith and all my e-mails were answered in a couple of days at the most! While we had a different co-ordinator once we arrived at the resort they went over every detail in a meeting the day after we arrived and things were still able to be changed! (we changed our gazebo location, once we had seen them for ourselves)

We did use the resort photographer (our budget simply wouldn't allow for anything else) and while we only had him for an hour we were happy with the pics. So dont panic if you are in the same boat! The location meens you are gonna get amazing pics no matter what!

If I can help with any other questions just let me know...and good luck to everyone!

Hi everyone. I hope I am posting this in the right place. I found this on Berman Travel's website regarding El Dorado updates:

 

We are proud to announce some exciting additions and improvements at El Dorado Royale. Guests may enjoy in a completely new infinity section with the swim up bar Golondrinas. We have also added beach beds around La Isla pool and very soon they will be added around Fuentes. Last but not least, at Kampai, the Asian restaurant, guests may need a jacket (even though it's not required), at Kampai, which has been enclosed with gorgeous bay view windows, and is now fully air-conditioned.

I am going with the sweet "free" wedding package. I do want to add some things but taking advantage of that. I hear the dinner is good but not real private. So depends on what you want & your budget. I'm in the process of trying to find a photographer. Heard the photographer on site is not the greatest & only an hour long.

    • It's so sweet, Nice idea. Perfect for a cute wedding.😍
    • Hello Kim;) Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!!! My name is Marisol Vera and I am wedding planner; if you are looking for a destination wedding Cancun and Riviera Maya are great options and pretty safe since all the hotels and resorts are taking great care of their guests and visitors. Please advise which is the destination wedding you are interested in as well as if you have contacted any hotels yet; I will be more than happy to assist you with your big day planning!!! Looking forward to hearing from you very soon;) Have a great day!
    • It depends on how far you can go, Can you go out of US for destination wedding, If yes then their are tons of options Ex. Bali,Thailand is becoming the new hot spot for destination weddings, Other one I would recommend is Rajasthan,India It might be expensive wedding but totally worth it the wedding takes place in palaces. If you don't have that much of budget still their are many options available such as Sicily,Italy - get the authentic wedding ceremony in Italy other one i would recommend is going to Spain their iconic scenery are perfect for a wedding. Thanks🙂  
    • Hi Alexa;) We have multiple services such as wedding planning, floral arrangements as well as wedding furniture. Question, would you please confirm the destination wedding you have chosen as well as the location or resort?  Please find below the links where you will be able to find our catalogue as well as pictures for some of the events we have done in the past;)   https://issuu.com/eventoseuforia/docs/catalogo_euforia    www.eventoseuforia.com   https://www.instagram.com/eventos_euforia_/   Please feel free to contact me with all the questions you may have, it will be a pleasure to assist you:) Have a wonderful evening!
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
