SunBride's insanely long DREAMS TULUM wedding review and pictures
Posted 07 April 2008 - 12:42 PM
The white tulle is the resort's. I had brought my own, but used it to decorate my balcony and my bed (it's a 4 poster bed, but it didn't have any white material handing over it like some of their other beds, and I was disappointed about that so I decorated it with my tulle). Initially Landy thought they may run out of white so I told her she could come steal if from my balcony if necessary since the gazebo was more important, but they ended up having enough.
For the turquoise part it's one big bolt of tulle, It is 54" wide (although comes doubled, the stuff is so thin!) and 120 feet (i.e. 40 yards) long. I bought the tulle from Idea Ribbon- Wholesale organza bags Organza Ribbon Organza Bags wedding tulle accessories $.09 Each Start- POWERED BY WEB 2.0 because they had the cheapest price I could find (and my parents were in the US for the winter so I had it shipped there to save money, since I am in Canada). The one I got was turquoise, but it ended up being way more green then shows on their website (i.e. almost like the mint green one)
I also bought small spools (6" wide) of tulle from them and that is what was used for the chair ribbons. I assumed DT would have the material for the ribbons, thank goodness I decided to bring the small tulles just in case, Landy said they didn't have the right color. This tulle was a darker green (although matched well), but when I check the idea ribbon website now I can't seem to find the right color.
I got the starfish from Micheals, they are the 6-8" ones that sell for 3,50$ regular price here (went back 10 times to get them with a 40% off coupon, yes, I'm that cheap!) There are other websites that sell them for cheaper, although for me shipping killed the deal i.e. conch king Romantic Gifts Tropical Island Nautical Home Decor Housewarming Ideas: Legendary Shells

I LOVE LOVE LOVE what you did with the gazebo. May I ask where you got the tulle? Was it in Ottawa? I hope so!
Were the flowers from the resort??
And they set this up without fuss??
I am impressed!

The last bouquet in the picture is from the resort (I only used it as a centerpiece) and the aisle and gazebo flowers are from the resort.
There was no fuss at all and as even complementing me on my great ideas, as though she enjoyed doing something different (although the actual decorating work was done by 2 guys, she ordered the flowers and then went over to check-up on them as they decorated).
I should take up a job like this! I enjoy being critical of stuff and very detailed, my husband says I am way too long winded and that the same information could have been much shorter (he only read half the review and then gave up!) but he didn't do the planning so he doesn't realize why all the little details matter. I bitch to him all the time about crappy website layouts that I encouter (i.e. bad layouts, unclear information, information overload). He's a software developer, he doesn't work with website, but it's still his industry so he appreciates my eye for good web layouts and he says that I should make that my job.
