        Yeah, let us know. I think I will send her another email too, because since I made my reservation before they changed the rules, I was told that we could rent the SG...and of course now that there is a possibility that I may not get it, I really really want it!! Isn't that how it always goes?! I'm scared that another bride on my day may get it instead...how does that work? When I had originally asked for it, she didn't mention anything about another bride wanting it. I hope thats the case and that I have priority since hoepfully I asked first. I really wish they only did one wedding per day. It would make things much easier!

          Same thing with me!! In Feb. we were there for our site visit and specifically asked to reserve that and Sandra said that it was ok. I would just send another email re-confirming with Landy the details of your wedding.

          Has anyone ever shipped stuff down there before??

          Also..I canNOT find the page for the new wedding guide! HELP!

            I actually thought about shipping some stuff down there too. I just dread packing all of it in my luggage, especially if I have a ton. At least shipping some of the stuff, I know you have to do it at least a month in advance, thats what I've heard.

            Trish, the new wedding guide is in this post somewhere...I just looked at it the other day and I have know idea what page its on! I'll try to find it cause I want to print it.
            Found it!!!...its on page 73 post #723

              I was trying to think of fun stuff to do near Dreams Tulum and I saw an article about coqui-coqui (:: Coqui Coqui Spa ::). It is a spa and perfumery, where they make up perfumes from natural essential oils in the Yucatan. Anyhow, I thought if any of you were looking for ideas for a "girl's outing" for the wedding party this might be a good option!

If not, this means that I need to come up with more money to pay for this wedding, and I'm just learning about it 2 1/2 months away.

                "In the wedding package , all the prices are subject to change without previous notice

                Please just let me know when we have or meeting you have the prices from the other wedding guide 2007-2008"
                I would take this email to mean that although they do cover themselves with "prices are subject to change" all you have to do is remind her when you arrive for your wedding that you have been working with the 07/08 guide and they will honor those prices.

                Despite the extended response time, I have to say that DT seems very flexible and accommodating and again, none of the nickel & diming I've found with other resorts. Of course there are pros and cons everywhere, but every bride that has come back from her DT wedding and posted about it said everything worked out fine so we just have to have a little faith & try not to stress ourselves out too much :)

                  Ladies! I need all of your help! I just recently joined the forum after reading all of your ideas and past wedding experiences at DT (see, I already know the lingo!) and I am currently in the process of planning our wedding for June 2009 with Sandra. E-mails are coming in slowly but surely.

                  Main questions:

                  New policy is 2 weddings per day: what if u and the other party want the same location? do you have to fite it out or choose an alternate day?

                  Where can we dance at for the reception? So confused with this. Can I have dancing on the beach/outdoors area with the new policy on renting out restaurants? According to the guide no, but after reading all of these reviews, it seems like it can be incorporated some how into the reception in these other locations..

                  Basically, I need to have 2 game plans for the reception: one for the restaurant if that goes through (one month notice thingy), and a back up plan in case the restaurant doesn't go through. What do you all suggest??

                  Would we be losing the beach ambiance of the whole thing if we did beach wedding, cocktails on pool terrace and reception in ballroom? I'm thinking some of the guests will not appreciate the heat. Thoughts?

                  Any help would be greatly appreciated. I can't wait to hear all of your ideas and experiences at DT!!!!!!!

                  Have a good day!

                  Lonna

                    I'm just wondering if its really worth $5000+ to bring in our own photographer.
                    Thanks so much ladies!
                    I am a bit late to comment but we used the resort's photographer and thought they turned out really well. My DH's step-sister does some photography and we had her do our TTD sessions. I will post them asap!!

                      So-finally after stalking Landy she emailed me back last night to let me know that the date we wanted is not available. I am so sad and upset...
