@@MandM2014 - I too am really sorry to hear about your BDR experience. :(  Like @@kmk2016, I had a much different experience when we went. :(  I am curious to hear what you find out about the private food pricing. Please keep us posted! 

 

Does anyone know if you can do another tasting once you are down there to finalize your selections?  I can't find anything in my notes on that.

@@MandM2014 - will you have children at your wedding ceremony...? 

 

I ask, because EDR has a lovely ceremony site on the beach that doesn't face the sandbags/concrete barriers - Gazebo 55. That's where we chose to have our ceremony because I didn't want the sandbags in my ceremony photos. It was perfect! click through my gallery to see some of our photos if you need more info on this location.

Yeah the prices are high but the wedding coordinator at Generations said they were planning on lowering them because they haven't had even 50% occupancy yet.  She told me to have my TA get in touch with them to see what they could do so I am waiting to here back with the prices.  We are getting married on the beach and that is why the beach was so important to me which is another reason why I am having a hard time with Generations.  The beach was beautiful with no seaweed but we still don't know how we feel about the concrete in the water lol. 

 

We were hoping the BDR would help us make our minds up and I think it just made it a little harder lol.

I agree I forgot about the fish…that was awful.  I didn't think about every chef cooking differently at every resort.  I wonder which resorts chef made that?

 

Sorry you didn't get upgraded! :(  They must have been full or something.

you won't be *right* on the beach there - it has a sea wall (what we're standing on in my profile pic). and then rocks below that, but the wall blocks the rocks so we got pretty blue water pics. 

 

here's one of our beach photos just in front of Gazebo 55. seaweed was more noticeable than the sand bags!!!

@@AllieH - thanks for that tip!  Our photog suggested going over to EDR's beach for some of our pics so I'll ask if we can go there!

@@AllieH  Thanks for the tip but we will have children in our wedding so that isn't an option.  We did see that area and it was much nicer!

 

@@girlinthecity97  They said they would allow me to get the old prices for the food because that is what they had printed at the BDR.  I hate we didn't have the greatest experience either….we are really considering a Florida wedding now after all of this  :(

@@MandM2014 - thanks for the tip! I'll be sure to watch this closely as we finalize plans.  Sorry to hear you are rethinking a DW in Mexico but totally get your reason for reconsidering.  The wedding planning process in general is stressful enough but planning a DW increases that because you have to work around so many things that are beyond your control until you are onsite days before. 

 

For what it's worth (my unsolicited feedback hehe) your guests will have just as much fun if you decide to go the FL route - still getting the tropical climate, beautiful white sandy beaches w/ turquoise water and maybe easier flights for your guests?  I went to a couple one,  in Marco Island (near Naples, FL) and the other in Miami and had a blast.  

 

Do not let the BDR reunion your spirits! I say follow the destination that checks off all you and DF's "Must Have" boxes! *hug*

@@MandM2014 - no thanks needed! I think we have all been in the same boat at some point. I know I have a NUMBER of times!  Keep me posted - whatever you decide will be perfect and all that you are envisioning. :)

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white.
