Some people went on excursions and there was always someone who wanted to go and someone who wanted to stay behind. At dinner we all just congregated at the Sugar Reef Bar around 6:30 and then made our decisions about dinner. There was never any pressure to feel like you had to eat at a certain time or at a certain restaurant because there were enough people that wanted to go different places. We had 6 children under 10 with us so there were enough adults to keep track of the little ones too. (meaning that they couldn't get into to much trouble or too far away with out one of us noticing right away)

I think his name was Ruben. I think he did a great job too but I do wish I would have hired him to stay longer through most of the dinner reception instead of just taking picture before during and after the wedding ceremony.

Yes, the activity pool and the dolphins pool are one in the same. I had my reception on the beach side of the pool which kept us out of the way of most of the other guests at the resort. I also wanted a location that was very close to a bar and restroom. We did not have a problem at all with getting drinks all night. We were right next to the sea side grill to which is where they prepared our food for dinner too which worked out nicely. Oh and the lighting scheme in the activity/dolphins pool at night is absolutely georgous. The entire pool switches colors about every minute from purple to blue to red to yellow to green. It's just so pretty. Hope this all helps, good luck with your planning!

I'm not totally sure about the exact price becasue my parents paid for everything. My father almost had a heart attack when he paid the bill because it was in pesos but I think it was around $7000 by the time we had all of the extras added in and tipping.

    Lulu's review of Dreams Tulum

    I can't wait to see your pro pics Lulu! Looks like we had the same ribbon for our flowers!
  8. Sarah- The pics are fantastic and the colors are amazing. I love that you did the dance floor on the beach with the hanging globes above. It looks like you guys had an amazing time

What do you think you paid for the wedding/photography, etc. all together? Any info would be great! Thanks! Hi JMB! Thank you so much. I elected to go with the ultimate wedding package and just used the resort photographer that came with the package. I did pay an extra $350 for the CD of all the pictures he took so I could bring them home and use them as I wish. I do wish that I would have paid extra to have him stay through the reception though and take more pictures. Make sure you check out the official Dreams Tulum thread. There is more information there than you will ever need. It's the best (in my opinion) thread on this site for resorts
  10. Rachel!!! Oh my I'm soo sorry I haven't checked BDW in a couple of weeks. We're in the middle of renovating our condo and work is well....lets just say i'm in the financial industry and I'm afraid of spending too much time on the internet at work lately. don't want to give the boss man a reason to let me go Yes I did provide my own ribbon. I brought at least 100 spools with me of various patterns in my colors and different width's. I just gave it all to landy and told her to do what she wanted. It worked out great. I had soo much ribbon she used them as napkin rings too! As far as the Ipod goes. I only had to show up with my actual Ipod. They set up HUGE speakers and you just plug your Ipod in. The WC will ask you if you have specific songs that need to be played like first dance, mother son and father daughter dances. I just separated those into a different play list. They also give you a microphone if you would like to make speeches. I'm soo excited for you... You leave in a couple of days!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to hear about it when you get back

  13. Thanks for the input. That's the route I think we're headed. We just called another store in NYC and they confirmed that the dress is discontinued. I told my girlfriend to get the courage to call the store back and tell them that we know the dress is discontinued and that they are trying to sell us the dress in the store. Which we'd be willing to work with provided there was a serious discount. The dress started out at $2500 and they and they knocked it down to $1850. I personally tell her to just forget it except it looks AMAZING on her. It's so unique. I told her to offer $500 in cash and see what they say. It's such a small size and a really different dress I'm think they'll have a hard time getting rid of it. thanks again, I'll let you know how it all turns out
  14. I was shopping for a dress yesterday for my best friend and MOH who is getting married in September. We found a dress that was in a trunk show the previous weekend and fell in love with it. The store really tried to pressure her into buying the dress or at least put a non-refundable deposit that day insiting that the dress was being shipped to another store the next day for another trunk show and that as soon as the dress left the store they would no longer be able to put in an order for said dress. Of course she received a call today saying that she had to make a deposit today to ensure that she could order the dress. Here's the thing. There are only two stores in Illinois that actually carry this designer. We called the other store and they informed us that that specific dress is not being cut anymore by the designer. They think that the other store is being "shady" and probably selling her the actual dress she tried on and not really ordering one from the designer. which is fine, that just means she has more room to negotiate with respect to pricing. my question is....have any of you dealt with something like this? I've tried to contact the designer directly but we're kind of on a time crunch. The pressure is on if you know what I mean. what would you girls do?
