    Just so I can be prepare ahead of time.....for those of you who have gotten married at EDR (or for those of you who are just "in the know"), should I expect any type of hidden or surprise fees that are outside of things that I've booked?

        I would like to know too.. we leave on MOnday. So far, I have always had an updated and itemized sheet from Valeria for everything they have charged me.

            This might be general information---and everyone already knows.. but I wasn't aware there was a $90 fee for translation of wedding documents.....

                the only charges I have come across are for the photographer. I was also very disappointed to learn that champagne is not included in the "international open bar" for the cocktail reception or private dinner event. This completely bugs me b/c you can order at any bar in the resort but they claim that for the events it requires extra "service."

                Be prepared if you plan on ordering bottles of wine or champagne. The prices are outrageous. There is one bottle of red wine on the list that we drink frequently at home for $9. We typically pay around $36 in a restaurant. EDR wants $80 a bottle!

                Hopefully I won't run into any hidden charges when we are down there next week.

                See you at the pool Shea!!

                  Hey Bre- so you can get glasses of champagne at the bars on the resort- but not served at the private events?!
                  so wine by the glass is included in the all-inclusive package- just not by bottle- or is wine not included in guests' AI package at all??!
                  Lordy Bre-- yours came so fast!!! know you and Shea both are super excited!! YAH!!

                      We get there on Tuesday and are also staying in a casita. I just checked accuweather and tuesday-thursday are cloudy with thunder showers. I feel (and Hope!) that those are passing showers.

                      But our wedding day is some sun and clouds, light winds, Real feel- 87 (kind hot but way better than rain!)
