El Dorado Royale Wedding *New to this site* HELP

Recommended Posts

I just randomly found this wonderful site but I am a little confused on how to get into convos and ask questions. I love looking at everyones pictures and reading the advice. My wedding is in January and I'm beginning to get a little overwhelmed. I don't even know where to begin to start picking things out for the reception. I have 17 guests and I'm doing the private reception at Tucanes- I have picked out tiki torches, floating votives for the pool and 100 sand bag candles...that is as far as I've gotten with the planning, sadly. I've seen where some of you girls had a "welcome reception" some even with the adorable Donkey...my wedding planner hasn't even mentioned any of that fun stuff to me. Please help!! :(  ANY kind of planning advice or tips are welcomed and will be GREATLY appreciated. angel1.gif

Hi Shannon,

 

Here's a link with most of the options that EDR has available for ceremonies and receptions: 

 

http://www.weddingsbylomastravel.com/planning/

 

the donkey is under the entertainment I think - you can do a cocktail hour with the donkey. 

 

as for replying to threads - just go to the thread and hit "reply", you'll find a ton of info specifically on EDR on the specific resort thread:

Hi Shannon, I just happened to find this site too and what a wonderful one it is. I picked out my wedding location, gazebo 55, based on it. Like you I am having my dinner event at Tucanes. I just confirmed my wedding date this week and I am curious what we can do with the Tucanes location. I think up lighting will dress the place up and heard from a friend you can add a light with your initials or logo on the dance floor very cheap. I personally think you can save money on needing to pay for a dance floor at Tucanes versus having at the beach. We are getting marred April 28, 2013 at EDR. I would love to see what feedback you get or any tips. Happy planning! Melanie

Thanks AllieH....I am definitely getting the Donkey...I have a free cocktail hour from booking with DestinationWeddings.com so I'm just going to the add the adorable Donkey for $200. 

 

I feel like I should change my gazebo to gazebo 55....Any suggestions? Why did you guys choose that particular one?

Melanie, I totally agree about Tucanes...love the location and I've been browsing lighting options and decor for my dining tables. I love pink and green but I haven't been able to find the exact pink and green I want on the Lomas site. Does anyone know of a site you can look at decorated reception tables? I would like to find a picture and send it to my WC and say "thats exactly what I want"!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
