EDR reception location help!

Recommended Posts

Shea was is very interesting here is that I am having my cocktail reception from 4-6pm at Gaviotas on the 19th... What is going on!?!?!? They had also told me that my rain location would be the covered pool area.

 

What time are you having your cocktail receptionhuh.gif?

 

I can't believe we'll be in Mexico in two weeks!!

so I freaked out and didn't read all the posts.

 

The Health Bar is on the way to the casita section, just across from the beach. I don't recall how well it would fit 40 people. Were you planning on having dancing? B/c I don't think it could accommodate dancing too.

 

As for someone's recommendation of Tucanes, I hope she doesn't offer you that one b/c that where our private dinner is from 6-10pm.

 

This is so stressful! Don't you feel like you have no leverage?? Here in the states you could threaten breach of contract but you can't do that down there and they know it. I'm so afraid that once we get down there they are going to change everything on us and there will be nothing we can do about it... smile35.gif

We are having the cocktail party from 8-10. And then planning on heading over the Guacamayas.... We are kind of doing things backwards. We are doing the free dinner at El Cocotal, and then the cocktail party.

 

We are planning on having music, but it is for only 2 hours. We might dance a little, but not too much.

 

Did you like the Health Bar? She mentioned the pool area next to it as well that we could use.

The coordinator that I've been working with, Monica, highly recommended Gaviotas for me for our private reception. We're also doing the free dinner reception at El Cocotal and then just having drinks and dancing (and probably the cake) at Gaviotas (for 2 hours) after our dinner. I haven't heard of the Health Bar as an option, but from what I heard about Gaviotas, that sounded nice.

The Health Bar is an exception for me because of the goof up with my original location. She stressed that it was a one time thing.

The only reason I am considering it over Gaviotas is the pool at the Health Bar. I have already purchased the floating candles for the pool....

Aaahhh....that makes sense......well hopefully whichever location you choose will turn out to be perfect - it should be! All brides that I've heard from that have gotten married at EDR are always very happy w/ the final results! I can't believe both you and Bre will be getting married there in a few weeks! Good Luck - I just know it will be great!!

    • 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.
