    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.

      Hi Shannon,

       

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

       

      http://www.weddingsb...l.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:

      happy planning!!

        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"!!
