El Dorado Royale Reception and Cocktail Party Ideas

Recommended Posts

Hola!  I am getting married on November 20th at the El Dorado Royale.  I was wondering if anyone out there opted not to have a private reception and just went to one of the bars on site.  We are trying to keep a tight budget and thought it would be fun to have a private cocktail and appetizer party after the ceremony and then go to dinner and to the Guacamayas bar for their nightly entertainment.  What worries me is that you don't know what the entertainment is going to be until the week of, so there may be karaoke, salsa dancing or a dj.  Did anyone decide to go this route and would you do it again?  Also, if anyone had the Mexican cocktail party with tacos and the donkey, please let me know how that was as well!

We had the Mexican Donkey Cocktail party between our ceremony and reception so our guests had something to eat and do while we finished up photos. Everyone loved the mexican fingerfood and the donkey was the highlight! We went to Guacamayas after our private reception got shut down at 11pm and it was an ok place to go. I wish we could have stayed at our private event all night, but I guess their staff has to take down for the next day.

Are you planning on just taking your group to a restaurant for dinner? Be aware that you will not be allowed to sit together, have speeches, music or a cake then. It is nicer if you can get a private area for dinner/dancing, and it can be done on a tight budget.  They have some cheaper options for food(like the BBQ buffet) and all the food at EDR is amazing so you can't go wrong.  Then you and your guests will get to have that wedding feel and enjoy each others company(everyone did travel so far!) and you can cut costs by not hiring a dj and using an ipod.Then you can choose your music style too! Just my opinion and it is what we did for our wedding, and everyone loved it!

    • 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
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . 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.
