I noticed that the last thread for El Dorado Seaside Suites is a bit dated, so I thought I'd start a new one!  I just booked an April 2016 wedding with the resort, and I'm so excited to start planning.  We have about 60 people on the guest list, and it looks like most will be able to come!


If anyone has tips for timing of the ceremony, cocktails (which are 2 hour packages), and reception (4hours), let me know!  I have a 3:00 ceremony as of now, but I'm thinking about moving it back to 4:00 and just using one hour for cocktails.


Happy planning!

hi there! so exciting - as you noticed it's been a while since we've had an EDSS bride around. You may want to check out the Generations or the EDR threads for the cocktail/reception info. the official EDR thread does have the banquet kit and event info there too. link in my signature. hope that helps!

Thanks for the reply.....if there's no other current brides there, maybe that just means they'll be EXTRA  accommodating for me :)


I'll keep an eye on the EDR threads for the basic info.

I am getting married at EDSS in March 2016. I thought the photographers at the resort seemed very overpriced for the packages they offered so I spent hours searching local photographers. I stumbled across Octavio Montes in some reviews (www.OctavioMontes.com).  I have appreciated his expert opinion and tips about how to create a timeline to ensure the best photos on my wedding day. His website has a lot of advice on timelines. He has been very responsive via email and answers all my questions quickly and thoroughly so he may be a great resource for your planning should you go with him.

Welcome to our forum community, choffart and LeighC, and Congrats on your upcoming destination weddings next year!!! You've come to the right place for lots of great ideas, suggestions and support from everyone here, so well done already :) ....and another link


One thing to consider on your Wedding Day timeline, is the sunset times. Usually if you have the ceremony 1 to 1.5 hrs before sunset, it gives your photographer time to capture your newlywed photos in those Golden sunset moments with their exquisite light!!!


Here's a link to the sunset times taken from our webpage - to help you out.....Mexico Weather / Sunsets     ....and another link to other FAQs wedding couples have asked us, as well as a suggested timeline for how your wedding day could unfold: MTM FAQs webpage with suggeted timeline 


For further inspiration, here are a few examples of some magical wedding moments that matter we captured, taken from our Cover Photos Album....enjoy :)











Hope it all works out just the way you envision for your Perfect Wedding Day Celebration!!! - cheers - team MTM :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
