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?

Thanks for the info

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.

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
