Getting Married at El Dorado Royale

I had intended to get married in a gazebo because I wanted to ensure that I had some shade during the ceremony but some of the beach pictures I've seen look so beautiful that now I am undecided. How about you?

What day?  I'm the 8th!  Which wedding coordinator are you working with?  How many guests are you expecting?  


My biggest issues have been trying to pick the photographer, whether or not to have a DJ, and reception location.  I would recommend picking your ceremony location and reception location ASAP (if you haven't already) so you get the spot you want.  I waited too long and now my reception location is already booked so trying to figure out another perfect spot.

OMG!!!! I am so happy I found this forum! My wedding date is March 26, 2011 at the EDR and I so need help! This has been very nerve racking doing a destination wedding and I just want everything to turn out nice. 


Question for y'all did you get a discount for booking a group of rooms?


What photographer are you using? 


I am worried about not having shade during the ceremony too but I really want the beach I am so torn :/ 


SO much to do anyone else feeling overwhelmed because only so much is in your control?

I'm using Claudia Photo for my pictures and from her website, she looks fantastic!  Best to pick that early though because the resort preferred photographers book up. 


And yes, I did receive a group discount for having a certain number of guests.  That applied towards room rates and towards private functions of the wedding.  It is definitely worth while. 


Good luck and happy planning!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
