El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

Was it hard not having an MC? I would want to ask a family member but I don't want it to consume their entire night. Does the dj control the flow of the night or was it the MC? Or did the MC just announce the bride and groom then speeches?

Hi @@KimberlyD,

 

I noticed no one has responded yet, so though it may be late, hopefully it will still be helpful!

We had an uncle act as MC and only remembered to ask him 2 days before hand. Oops! But it worked perfectly. All he did was grab the mic from the DJs at the beginning to introduce us, the dances, handed it off to the best man and maid of honor for the speeches, and announced when to go grab food. The ONLY issue was when the music for our first dance started before I had fixed my bustle. But they just restarted it and we were good to go! Our MC didn't mind at all and I don't think it inhibited his ability to enjoy the night a bit.

Hello Brides-to-be,

 

We were part of an awesome wedding @El Dorado Royale, it was Meggan & Brian's wedding, it was full of unforgettable moments. Definitely, EDR is one of the most beautiful resorts for weddings.

Hello ladies,

 

Congrats to all of you who serviced planning a destination wedding !!! lol

 

im looking for some advice from past brides. Our wedding will be august 31st 2018

 

we chose to have our ceremony at the pier, our cocktail hour on the beach and the reception at the palapa next to the pier.

 

I have questions regarding bringing my own photographer, did anyone book one the provided vendors thru lomas travel? if so did you like your experience and their quality of work? also how much photo and video coverage time would you recommend ?

Hello!

 

I got married last year on the pier as well and loved it. The only downside was that they were not able to take down the shades on the side of the pier. I have attached some pictures of from the ceremony. I am not a huge sand person so I didn't like the idea of standing in it the whole ceremony. The pier is big enough to have your wedding at the end and then the cocktail hour at the other end, but still close enough to the beach to go take pictures. I am not much help on the photographer. I brought mine from home and felt it was completely worth it. The pictures are the longest lasting thing from the wedding!

 

Good Luck Planning!

Thanks so much for sharing!!! the pics look great!! if you don't mind me asking, did you end up hiring lots of outside vendors? such as dj? Photo Booth? flowers etc?

For decorations I hired an external vendor for decorations and tried to sneak it in, but got caught. That wasn't a good start to my wedding day when they walked in with screen shots from Facebook, but I guess I knew it was a possibility I would get caught. I also used an outside vendor for my flowers and they only charged my an extra $500 to set it up and outside vendor fee. In hindsight I would have done the same again cause my flowers were a lot cheaper and so were the decorations even with the extra $500. I did use their DJ and he was great. I sent them a list of songs for dinner and then dancing and it was perfect. We had a lot of local Texas songs on the list and they had them all the night of the wedding. I didn't realize when I ordered it, but the DJ package came with balloons and glow sticks which was a lot of fun. I did a sit down three course meal and it was excellent. We had the reception I think at Tuacanas pavilion and they cooked the steak and tuna right there in front of everyone and it all tasted excellent. I also got my hair done at the salon there and I thought it turned out good. I was too scared to hire the makeup though. I think the only other vendor we used was we had Mariachis at the reception.

Hello Everyone! 

It looks like no one has posted on here in a while but I am getting married at El Dorado Royale in May 2019.  I am wondering if anyone has used a live band during their reception? I wasnt crazy about the one pop band on the lomas website.  

Also what is everyone doing for flowers? The flowers through the hotel seem expensive so im trying to figure out if it will be worth it to pay the 800 vendor fee for an outside florist, in addition to the hassle of researching a florist. 

Any input would be appreciated! 

Thanks :)

Tara

Hello! 

We are getting married at El Dorado Royale in August 2019.  We are trying to decide between La Salon Royale and Los Tucanes for the reception. I vastly prefer Tucanes but I’m worried everyone will be hot and miserable since I’ve been told it doesn’t have AC. Does anyone have experience with either location?

If Tucanes, is there a way to get fans or cool it down? If La Salon, I’d love tips on how to decorate inexpensively so that it doesn’t look so “ballroom”-y. Thank you very much!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks

After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to.
