    TealMarie- You must be beside yourself with excitement!  How far in advance did you choose your ceremony and reception location?  Gloria told me that I did not need to decide until a month before the date but I am worried that the options would become more limited if they get picked by another bride before me.

    As soon as we decided on this resort and wedding date, I emailed Gloria with our choices for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception locations. I think you need a hotel reservation number to actually reserve it. You probably can wait until a month before but I didn't see the point in waiting and I like having things organized. By the way, Gloria is awesome to deal with. Hope you have fun planning!

    I'm glad to hear Gloria has been great! We already have our date booked and I pretty much know what details I want so maybe I will just get it settled now. TealMarie you may have already posted this earlier but what are the details of your day?

      Our ceremony is at 2pm at the beach gazebo. The cocktail hour will be at Las Olas and the reception in the Foyer. I know a lot of people have said the Foyer is incredibly hot but from what I can tell they had their weddings in the summer, so I'm hoping it's a bit cooler in there. I have no problems answering any other questions you might have. I've read through this thread and I feel like I've asked Gloria about everything you could think of, so I'm happy to share :)

          Hello Ladies, I have newly joined the site but have been reading your thread for awhile. My fiance and I have been planning our wedding at ERC. We settled on everything over a week ago but we are having problems hearing back from the resort. I have been in contact with Mayla. I see a lot of you used Gloria. Has anyone else had problems with Mayla? We have not yet finalized the date and I'm worried it's going to fill up. It's been a week and a half since she last emailed me and I have emailed her 3 times since then. Does anyone have any advice?!? Can I get in touch with Gloria instead somehow? We wanted a small stress free wedding and I'm already stressed because we can't finalize anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :-)

            You are both going to be so happy with everything!!  After I booked and figured out what I wanted in terms of location, time and even menu options, I emailed Gloria EVERYTHING.  I like to have everything planned out as well.  She was so wonderful to deal with and so thorough.  I want to go back so badly!  TealMarie, I can't wait to read your reviews!!!

              I'm interested to hear about the food as well. I've been to ERC before and know that all of the food is so good so it's going to be a tough decision. I was wondering if anyone used the extra room that is included in the package for the groom the night before the wedding? I know it says "based on availability" so I was wondering of couples actually got to use that option. I'm hoping to have that option and host a "girls sleepover" that night.

              Well it's official ladies! My fiance and I are all booked for June 12th, 2014!! I am soooo ready for it to be here NOW! :) I just sent Gloria an email full of questions regarding questions about the bouquets, centerpieces, locations, menu, etc. (she already sent me the options to choose from) but I wanted to ask a few questions on here to see if you all knew!

               

              1. Does anyone know how much DJ Mania costs? I read that that company is on that list of approved DJ's so there is no $500 fee correct? We aren't having a reception at home so I want it to be a fun time!

               

              2. What is the name of the company of in-house photographer? I think Gloria sent it to me but I can't find it anywhere. I wanted to research them some.

               

              3. I'm also curious about the groom's room night before the wedding, this would be very helpful.

               

              4. Anyone know if you can have a slideshow played at the reception?

               

              TealMarie your day is coming so fast! I'm excited to see how it turns out!

              Thanks everyone!

                Congrats! From everything I've heard from past brides, you'll be so happy you booked there. I'll be sure to come back and post my reviews as well. I think I can answer some of these questions.

                 

                1. I believe he costs $1200 for the 4 hour reception. He's their 'in house' DJ so there is no $500 fee.

                 

                2. I don't remember.

                 

                3. I've asked about this and it's based on if there's a room available. I tried to book it beforehand but she said they'd look into when we arrive, so I'm not worrying about it. If we don't get it, he'll stay in his buddy's room.

                 

                4. Yes you can. It's $300 for the projector and $145 for the screen rental.
