Dreams Tulum, November 1 - 8, 2008

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, as directed I am posting to say hello and let you know about my big date coming up!


Jody & Steve from Vancouver, B.C. CANADA (current ages 33 and 36, first time marriages for both of us!)


Wedding date(s) and location: November 1 (civil ceremony with limited attendance on the way to the airport) and November 5, 2008 (symbolic ceremony with friends and family) in Dreams Tulum, Riviera Maya



We, or maybe I should say *I* (lol), selected Dreams Tulum as we originally were selecting from locations that offered direct flights from Vancouver, B.C. - Jamaica, parts of the Bahamas and Mexico. It was soon apparent that Mexico had the best variety of choices for resorts available and that Dreams was the best choice for us as we likely had a couple of cousins that were teens attending at the wedding, which ruled out an adults only location.


We haven't fully decided on where we will be spending our honeymoon week, but El Dorado which is nearby is a very strong candidate. After some more research on the net, a decision will be made. Looking forward to reading about all of your experiences following a lot of your guidance and suggestions.


First thing I learned from browsing this site was a "sand ceremony" is a must for our symbolic wedding. Perfect thing for a beach wedding! Thanks everyone for taking the time to share your stories, much appreciated!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
