El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

@@KimberlyD No. If you look through her Facebook page, she has a photo album of brides she's worked with and a number of them were from Azul Fives - another Karisma resort. And honestly, I'd think the resort shouldn't care - what's the difference between you bringing decor from your hometown vs. picking some up in town.

@@jhercule I checked out her site and she has so much more to offer than the hotel!! I am super excited :)

 

Since I am now much more excited for decorations now than I was before since i have a good selection to choose from I have been looking at pictures on pinterest and online. Does anyone know if you can use long tables instead of the round ones? I have seen pictures with wooden tables then a fabric runner was used instead of a table cloth and I love that look, but I don't know if that is even something the hotel will offer.

@@KimberlyD they do have rectangular tables. They have rustic looking ones for a fee (I'd have to search through my email for a pic) or they have ones that you'd have to cover with a tablecloth for no additional charge. We're going to rectangular table - no charge route. I'll try to post the details that my coordinator sent me about the tables tomorrow.

@@KimberlyD i found the pictures! Ana Maria (my coordinator) quoted me $150/table for the rustic wood ones that don't need a tablecloth. The no additional cost ones are probably just regular folding tables, so they'll need a table cloth. Here are the photos she sent when explaining the options....

I am trying to decide which DJ to book. DJ All Music or Mega DJ. Who did you use? Which do you recommend?

Hi @@Starum2288, We used Mega DJ and got just the DJ, no MC. Overall they were pretty good, you pick out all of the songs though, so you can't complain about the song selection! They did a good job at timing and feeling the "mood" of the reception and were flexible if we wanted to request a certain song anytime :) They didn't have one song my husband decided he really wanted to hear that night so they hooked up my phone and we played it off of that! 

If you don't splurge for the MC (which was ridiculously expensive in my opinion), I would suggest asking a friend or family member ahead of time to introduce you, the dances, and any speeches. We didn't think about this before hand but luckily had an uncle who was perfect to be thrown into the job on the spot!

 

Also, as it states on the website, they brought a bunch of balloons and glow sticks which were really fun!

@starum228 we just used the mega DJ as well. We picked all the music ahead of time and he also took requests from our guests. Everyone thought he was great! Glad we didn't spend additional money on a MC

Thank you @@Nichole0878! Do you have to pick out all the songs ahead of time or just tell them must play songs and they will fill in with other songs throughout the night?

 

@@Starum2288, We picked all of our songs, but I think they would fill in with others if you wanted to. Picking all of them was a little daunting, but ended up being pretty fun because all the songs we heard throughout the night were ones we love :)

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.
