Resort: El Dorado Royale

What made you decide on having a destination wedding?
We always knew we wanted a destination wedding and never really considered anything else. We love the beach and a destination wedding seemed like a perfect fit for us, but we had no idea where start or which resort we should choose. Luckily Hannah helped us find our resort, and it was so perfect! The wedding coordinator was so helpful and it was basically stress free. I would definitely recommend a destination wedding to anyone considering it!
What made you decide on the destination/resort/venue?
The main reason we initially looked at El Dorado Royale was because it is an adults only resort. The restaurant selection and amenities were definitely a bonus! We also felt that the location would be pretty easy for our guests to travel to.
What was the biggest difficulty in planning your destination wedding?
We didn't really have any difficulties at all while planning the wedding. The hardest part was probably deciding on the resort and we made that decision pretty quickly!
What was the highlight of the experience and what was the biggest surprise?
The highlight was just having so many of our friends and family there to celebrate with us. I was surprised with how good the food was at every restaurant we went to, seriously can't think of one thing I didn't like. The room was also amazing! I loved the lazy river right outside of our room!
How well was the resort and your Onsite Wedding Coordinator to work with?
Everyone was so helpful and went above and beyond to make sure that our day was perfect! They really did make us feel special throughout our entire trip.
If your best friend were planning a destination wedding what would your advice be to her?
I would tell her not to worry about the details of the wedding, etc. The wedding team (at least at my resort) were total pros! I would tell her to relax and let them handle it. I would also suggest to plan a few days alone at the resort, either before or after all the guests arrive.
Was there anything that you would change looking back?
Everything honestly went just the way I thought it would. The only thing I would probably change is to stay a few more days, I wasn't ready to leave!
I'm so happy I could be a part of your special day! --Hannah Cote
