Site visit review and pics - Dreams Tulum

Recommended Posts

I am getting married at Dreams Tulum on May 10, 2008. I am getting married in the Spanish Chapel at 3pm and reception on the beach at Seaside Grill, if it is still available. I read your post online and I have a few questions for you.

 

What is the arch thing on the beach with the bamboo sticks? Is this for the wedding or receptions?

Is there room in the back for guests to stand in the chapel? Landy told me there was room for us to put white chairs for guests, but I am a little nervous about it.

Also, we just found out that through Apple Vacations they only reserve rooms in the Haceinda or “old†section of the resort. Did you see these rooms? Are they bad? We have tried several times to upgrade our rooms but the resort is booked.

If you have any photos of the bars, hotel rooms, church or Sea Side grill, I would love to see them. Any recommendations?

I am so excited about going to Mexico. We have 40 people attending including the bride and groom. I am getting a little nervous about traveling with my dress and favors.

You should try to posting in the "dreams tulum brides please post here" thread. Most of us DT brides communicate through there and if you read it (it's long!) you should find all your answers.

The sticks you are talking about is their version of a gazebo built for the ceremony. There definitely is room for chairs in the back of the chapel. Also room to stand on the sides of the pews. I have a large wedding but I still opted to use the chapel b/c its gorgeous!

The hacienda rooms are the "bottom of the line" but from what I've heard are decent enough. I've only stayed in the "dreams" rooms and those are definitely nice.
Again, check out the other thread. We have a great group of brides exchanging info on there! Good luck!

Great pics from the site visit!

 

I wish we had thought to take more pics of our wedding resort. Did a great job of the honeymoon resort but didn't get any generic pics of the surroundings at the DW resort, which is a bummer for us.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
