      I was told that this opens to the beach and there is an area alongside the pool that opens up from the Health bar and we would have all of this space. We will see!!!
      that would be great if you could post the pictures!
      Thanks so much!!

        I just booked May 20, 2008 at EDR. We are just starting decisions, but we are getting married in the beach gazebo.

          Congrats Mandy! If you need any help, I've asked lots of questions already so I may have some answers for ya. Where about in Missouri? I am from STL and went to undergrad in Springfield... been here in AZ 4 years now.

            Thanks! I've just started planning, so I'm not even sure what questions to ask yet! I'll take any advice you've got. We think we'll have approx 16-18 guests, and we like the idea of getting as much from the "free" packages as we can, since we did choose the all-inclusive.

            I live in Springfield, and went to undergrad at Drury and grad school at Missouri State. Where did you go to school?

                I graduated from Drury in '04. Sounds like we were there at the same time! What is your doctorate in? What school did you end up at?

                I do have some questions about EDR, if you can help fill me in! How soon do you have to decide on locations for the ceremony/reception? Can you add on/change anything after you get there? Where can I find pics from the resort photographer? Is it really worth it to bring in an outside photographer or videographer? Which flowers did you choose?

                  Small world... I guess I'd have to see a pic/know who you hung out with to see if I recognized you. I finished my doctorate at A.T. Still (Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine) in Physical Therapy at their campus here in AZ. I met my fiance when I moved down here and now I'm here to stay! I loved Springfield though and could see myself heading back that way someday.

                  As far as deciding locations, well I think you have to tell them within a month of your date. I think you can change things when you get there, such as locations but nothing like flowers, menus or any decorations they need to pre-order. Just keep in mind that there could be other events happening at the resort around the same time as your wedding, so this could limit the availability of some venues... there is another girl on this forum who is getting married there the same day I am. The photographer's web-site is: Professional weddings and events photographers company Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Cancun, Riviera Maya - Mexico</em></tt></strong>. It all depends on what is a big deal to you... personally the pictures are a big deal to me. They are one part of our wedding we will have forever and they are one of the best ways to share the wedding with family and friends who won't be able to join us in Mexico. I am either bringing in my own photographer from Phoenix or I will have my sister-in-law take pics (shes an amatuer photographer). As for flowers... I have had a hard time with this since every flower I have asked about has to be imported, therefore rediculously expensive! For example I asked about peonies, which my mother has growing along side our house in St. Louis and they are beautiful without her ever tending to them, and they want $300 for a normal sized bouquet of these!!! I could pick them myself back home... one of the slight disadvantages to a DW I guess! I think I am going to end-up getting the tropical bouquet (the bouquet shown across the top of the "flowers" page on Lomas' web-site). Hope this all helps! If you have any other questions feel free to ask!

                    I must say.....the resort photographer's website has been drastically improved than it was about a year or so ago. Maybe they started to hear our comments and decided to step up the game a bit!

                      Thanks! We are looking pretty hard at Vanessa Vargas to photograph our wedding right now, and trying to see what Valeria is going to tell us we have to do to get her in the door. I think we're going to go with the same bouquet you have picked, the one with bird-of-paradise. It's one of my favorite flowers anyway. Now, I'm trying to pick a gazebo. I'm not sure if they're not all available or what, but we were only given 4 options: 55, Faisanes, Mexican, and White Beach gazebos.

                      I think I've finally gotten a picture to upload into my sig. I was having issues with the pictures being too big, and I haven't yet figured out how to edit them on my new mac. My fiance also went to Drury, but he took time off between HS and college to travel overseas, so he was a little behind me.
