El Dorado Royale (EDR) Brides - POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

For those of you who did/or plan to do the free dinner, did you do place cards? What sort of set up did they do for you?

 

Also, is there something wrong with the search feature? I just get a blank screen everytime I try to search?

Good question! I'm interesting in the feedback....

As for the search feature, I get the blank screen when I do the basic search. Try the advanced search and just put your search terms in the window on the advanced screen - your search should then work.

We did El Cocotal. Had about 34 guests there for that dinner...

We didn't do place cards, but sort of wish we had.

They had three "tables" towards the back wall of the restaurant for us. One big rectangle with about 16 seats, a round table for 8, and another longer rectangle for 12.

Since we were out taking pics while our guests were showing up, it was sort of a free for all, with our parents somewhat overseeing. It all really worked out fine, but place cards would have probably been a good idea.

It would have bene very easy, once set up, for one of us or someone helping us to put them out...

We went up to the martini bar afterwards and had a blast. Met the rest of our wedding guests there and watched the Eagles almost beat the Patriots!!!

Let me know if you have any other questions!!!

We are also doing our reception dinner at El Cocotal's. So all worked out good just going to the martini bar afterwards. I was hoping that would be okay to do also & not have a private reception. Sounds like it worked out for your wedding. I was thinking of doing the mexican party the night before though. I am looking for feedback on photographer. Did anyone have the one on site or can you recommend anyone off site? That is my main dilemma at this time. Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using Claudia Rodriguez - so far, so good - I liked her work and she fit into my budget. She's also very friendly and pretty responsive.

We are having placecards for the wedding reception but I am so glad that you brought up that place cards would be good for El Cocotal. We are having our rehearsal dinner there and with 40 people would probably save same unwanted worrying.

 

Do you know if the resort will put the placecards where they belong for the dinner or do we need to be in charge of this before everyone gets there?

I was wondering the same thing? Thank goodness my little sister is my MOH, so I won't feel so bad having her run around putting place cards out if that is the case!

Thanks, I did just email them. Do you know the stipulations for the resort, bringing in an outside photographer? I hear you got to get a day pass or a one night stay. What did you do? Also could you give me an idea on the price range for them & how long? I do have a few others that were recommended also that I need to check into. Are you also doing a video? When is your wedding?

Good Luck to you & all on your planning

Thanks Jennifer. I did email them to get some info. Do you know the stipulations bringing in an outside photographer? I hear a day pass or 1 night stay. Did you also get a video with your package?

Well, we're just going to suck it up and pay the $500 outside photographer fee. I believe that we're getting package 3 for $2200 or something around that range. We're also getting the special highlights video ($250) and the videographer services (for $600 or so). Let me know if you have any more questions.

    • 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.
    • Well this a kind of situation mostly, It will be awkward situation for your parents, They are mature enough and parent don't want to spoil the marriage of their children. Don't worry everything gonna be fine. just have good bottle of wine for them🍷
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
