The new Dreams Tulum thread! (Post all DT Qs&As here)

Recommended Posts

Thanks girls that helps a lot! I'm scheduling hair appointments for 12:00 and my MOH is going to arrange some type of food in my room when we get back to do our makeup and then hopefully I can get the resort photog to the room by 3:00.

 

What do you do in the morning to keep busy? I think I will be up so early that day! Hopefully my girls can entertain me!

All the pictures and positive reviews are so reassuring! Congratulations!!! On another note, as some of you know, we have been having issues with my FH's family and their attending our wedding. They had never mentioned to us the possibility of not being able to attend ($ reasons) when we first started discussing this, and so therefore we went ahead with the planning process. Turns out, there never was any possibility of them being able to afford it. So now, in addition to his best man (twin brother) dropping out a few months ago (at least BEFORE we bought his families plane tickets) his parents have now dropped out too (and we are possibly out the airfare). As of this moment, his sister (a bridesmaid) and her daughter (our flower girl) are still coming, but given the fact that everyone else has dropped, I won't be suprised if she does too. I am really trying to focus on how beautiful everyones weddings have been, and on the fact that they will be with us in NY for our AHR, but it is seriously stressful to my FI and I, and has been causing some "disagreements." I have offered that we pay for his parents, but he refuses.... what can you do? Anyway, keep the positive stuff coming! It's helping me look forward to our beautiful wedding!

Okay, REALLY weird question for people who have been to the resort and had drinks there. I am looking for advice for items for my OOT bags. I'd like to get customized koozies/beer huggies, are they worth it? Do they serve beer/drinks from cans, bottles, or cups? Just want to make sure if I get these that they can be used. :)

Thanks!!

They serve the fun drinks in nice fancy plastic glasses. Beer I can't remember, but definitely not bottles (dangerous if people break them and leave them around on teh beach). I brought mugs and nobody used them, but I'm sure some other people would get use from them, just not my family.

 

Here is an example of how a daiquari was served on the beach

Okay, so here might be a weird one.. I am having more people planning on coming to the wedding than I originally expected. Call me cheap or what have, but I honestly didn't plan on some of these people wanting to even come.. so here is my quesiton.. For the cost of reception, do you have to pay for up front, like before you get to dreams, or is this something that the WC discusses with you. Also, are you allow to have a different number of guest at the reception than the wedding.. (55 at the wedding, but 35 at the reception).

Hi everyone, I went from being a "Secrets Maroma Beach" bride to a "Dream Tulum" bride during the week! Now I have to start all over again (my research RE: best building, which rooms to request, upgrades, wedding packages, etc...) so I'm feeling quite stressed out! Any advice, recommendations, reassurance, etc... to share?

Hi Girls,

 

I am fairly new with this website. However I have also decided to go with Dreams Tulum, for February 2010, however I am having trouble obtaining pricing the two TA I have consulted with, they say its too early. I will be flying out of Toronto, Ontario. I see two girls have already had some luck securing rates and I was just wondering if it would be okay if I contact you for more information.

Another question I have is did you put your deposit down for your wedding package prior to booking your triphuh.gif I am afraid reserving a day in February and then the prices being too high for this resort. Not sure if they would be fairly flexible at moving your date after you paid the deposit. Or if anyone knows if you decided not to got with them if you would receive your deposit back for the wedding package. I only wanted to pay at the most $2,000 taxes in per person, is that realistic flight and hotel for a week?

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
