Newbie, Wedding Feb '15. Debating On Edr/edss Or Now Jade.

Recommended Posts

Hello! My fiancé and I got engaged on NYE. We are planning on a Feb. 2015 wedding preferably in Rivieria Maya, although we aren't opposed to DR. Originally I fell in love with Royal Playa del Carmen, they seemed to have awesome packages but it ended up being the top end of the budget for my guests. We are now debating between El Dorado Royale, El Dorado Seaside Suites, and Now Jade. Has anyone had a wedding at these resorts or know someone who has? Any suggestions or tips? Open to other places too!

Welcome to BDW.  All of those are great choices.  El Dorado Royale and El Dorado seaside suites are both adults only and have amazing food.

 

Have you priced out the resorts for the stay because they are a different price point?

 

We are a top agency with both Karisma and AM Resorts so we can def. help.

 

I love the newest Karisma Wedding Collections:

 

Vintage Elegance

 

Sophisticated Soiree

 

Pure Glamour

 

Majestic Flair

 

Colonial Charm

 

Coastal Bliss

 

Also, we have a NOW resorts and El Dorado wedding webinar coming up soon and you should join to learn more about each property"

Congrats! A NYE engagement is special!

 

Have you looked at the Gran Porto Real? It's a sister resort to The Royal in PDC and has all of the same features and packages, but they are a lower price point than The Royal. I've been investigating both and had the same feeling about price. Gran Porto Real definitely has a lot of things going for it, and you're still right in the heart of PDC and all the action if that's what you're looking for! There have been some posts on here about it. Not a lot, but worth reviewing!

 

Good luck and enjoy!

Hi Tammy. I liked El Dorado Royale and Seaside Suites based on their reviews for food but am torn on a few of the differences between both resorts. First of all I really loved El Dorado Maroma but it is out of my guests price range I think. If it was just the two of us for our honeymoon or something I could see paying that but wanted to keep it semi-affordable for guests planning on attending. I am torn regarding the size difference. I can't decide if I would rather stay at the Seaside Suites since it's smaller and may be nicer for a wedding group or the Royale since it will have a lot of options regarding restaurants, room prices for my guests, things to do, etc. Also a con thought for Seaside would be that they don't have a lot of room options for my guests and the con for Royale could potentially be the size. I am afraid it will be hard to track people down, etc.

I am now signed up for the webinars for both the Karisma resorts and the RPDC resort however, when I tried to click on the Now resort webinar there wasn't a link. That's kind of later in the planning game than I would like because I'd like to have a decision made and deposit down somewhere by beginning - mid March.

acw271011, thank you! There is no way we will forget our engagement date I guess, haha.

I did see that guests could stay at GPR and be counted as your guests for the wedding packages and I thought that was nice. I'm wondering though if other days we would be able to hang out between the two resorts. I quickly glanced at Gran Porto Real but didn't really look into it just because i was so bummed by the price point for RPDC. It is perfect and there would then be no debate between that, EDR, EDSS, and the Now Jade resort....decisions, decisions...
