  1. Hi everyone, We got married at Dreams Tulum on April 18, and the day was amazing!!! Natalia was such a great help & ensured that everything ran smoothly. The only negative part of the day happened a the salon - they didn't have enough staff to do our hair and makeup (there were 7 of us girls from my group there all starting around the same time), and they actually brought in a female employee to work on my mom's and sister-in-law's hair, and it was very obvious this girl had never done hair before in her life. We got the spa manager Rosa to stop this girl, but then my mom had to wait quite a while for an actual spa employee to start on her hair, which was a bit stressful as it really pressed her for time. I felt bad because we all had to leave her there by herself. It ended up working out ok, and I really loved everyone's hair and make-up in the end. The only other thing was that we had ordered flowers for our hair, lillies, which were sent to the spa, and they ended up each being the size of our faces! We didn't use them, but I still had to pay for them as they were in the contract. They ended up finding two small flowers at the spa for my hair, but nothing for my bridesmaids. I didn't end up asking for my money back until after we got home as I didn't want to waste any of my time there doing it, and they wouldn't do anything for me. Other than that...... It was the most beautiful day of our lives. We got married at 3:30 p.m. on the beach, and then had our reception by the relax pool. I was so pleased with both locations. I was worried about it being to hot on the beach during the ceremony as the high was 89 degres that day (that's the high without the humidity), but the wind from the ocean kept everyone comfortable. And it didn't hurt that the ceremony was a quick 20 minutes too. The relax pool for the reception was beautiful & very private, and the service and food was excellent. It was a full moon, and it was surreal to look out from the head table and see the pool, ocean, and moon rising, all at once, it was beyond gorgeous. We had DJ David Arista from the resort do our music, and he was amazing, had him for 3 hours and we got great value, $750 for the night, and he played beautiful music during dinner, and really fun dance music after, our reception turned into a big dance party with all 34 of us dancing, which we did not expect! We had the gold meal it seems everyone picks: garden salad, shrimp quesadillas, surf and turf, and chocolate cake. We got the golden 05 wedding cake; it was pretty, and also absolutely delicious! We got the vanilla cake with strawberry filling - make sure you actually take the time to eat a piece of the cake, it was so good. We used Sweet Fire Photography as our photographer, and we are so so happy with the results. Here's a link to the slideshow Lori (the photographer) created for us: http://video214.com/play/c0yjpeJse60nfJrnCdpOMw/s/dark Best of luck at your weddings!! Jill

  3. My husband and I were married April 18 2011 at Dreams Tulum, and could not be more pleased with the pictures taken by Lori and her assistant!! We had the 6 hour package which we asked to start at 2 pm, and Lori showed up at my room at 2 pm on the dot. Her and her assistant got to the resort early and scouted out locations for pictures, and they went down to the ceremony site and photographed that before coming to our rooms. They were both very friendly, creative and innovative with their shots. A lot of people who have seen our pictures now have remarked that the pictures look like they could be right out of a wedding magazine. Lori had awesome ideas for where to take pictures, and asked us a few times as well if there was anything in particular that we wanted shots of. Lori was all over the place during the ceremony and got some really cool shots - Jeremy (my husband) mentioned that the pictures captured the ceremony a lot better than the video did. In short, she was incredibly easy to talk to and get along with, flexible, and professional. I don't know how to post pictures on here, but I will look into it and do my best to post them or a link to the video once we have it. Feel free to message me with any questions you may have. Jill
  4. Hi Sara, We're getting married on the 18th at 3:30 p.m., and I'm pretty sure we'll miss our cocktail hour too. I tried to move the cocktail hour to a different day but they wouldn't go for it. We were able to book the caribbean party for everyone on the Friday beforehand which I think will work out better, and I'm glad our guests will be occupied and stick as a group while we're off getting our pics done during the cocktail hour, so I think it worked out for the best. Good luck! Jill
  5. Teira, I love your ideas! Did you buy the Aveda products from an Aveda store? And if you don't mind my asking, how much was it for all 3 products?
