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

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! It's coming down the last few weeks and I had a quick question regarding the size of tulle that everyone ordered for the beach gazebo?

 

I'm on the website that ya'll referred: Tulle Fabric , but don't know what size to order...do I get the large ones, 54"x40yard or 2 of the 60"x10yard? Will this be enough?

 

Thank you :-)

Seriously some of you should get a paycheck for this, even after your wedding is over you continue to help other brides in needs. THANK YOU for all you advice and information.

Questions...
1. Can you exchange for anything if you are not using there photo or video?
2. Do you know where the best place to meet for a group of about 20 for a dinner rehearsal/meet and greet?
3. How did a lot of you carry your extra decorations and favors from your homes to the resort?
1) Officially know, but they have been known to be flexible. I wouldn't say they will exchange for anything, I think most people have been most successful at getting more photography or video, but I don't know about exchanging it for something completely different. I would say don't count on it, but if you are successful consider it a bonus.

2) Depends how much you want to pay. If the answer is nothing, then your only choice is the buffet. If you don't mind paying a 20$ per person service charge (for regular menu) or 55 or 65 pp (silver or gold menu) you could have a dinner at any of the restaurants (since your group is only 20).

3) You get your guest to bring some and/or just pay extra. Don't ship stuff in advance. It's a pain and expensive and people have had trouble with getting stuff through customs.

Welcome! I do sometimes think I should try to get a job with Dreams. I'm sure I've helped them get a TON of business with this thread :)

Nobody has ever asked that before, you'd have to ask them. But if you want to make the trip you can probably save a ton of money by picking one up yourself in Playa Del Carmen, maybe at Wal-Mart.

FYI LADIES!!!!

So I just got a call from one of my best friends that the resort is totally booked!!! I just called my mother in law who is a travel agent and she confirmed this. I am shocked because I never thought it would fill up like this in the 1st week of May.

Any suggestions

You should send her a PM, I'm sure she'll reply. Most people get emailed notices when they get PMs so even if she's not on here she'll likely see it.

Has your group booked? I assume most have but there were a few holding out for last minute sales?

I guess guests will have to stay elsewhere. Tulum has a lot of hotels, but no all-inclusive resorts. The 2 all inclusives that I can think of that are pretty close are Dreams Puerto Aventuras (very close if I can remember correctly) and there is the Bahia Principe Tulum/Akumal/Coba which is I think like 10-15 minutes away and fairly popular and the same price range. Your guests would need day passes for the wedding and any other events (welcome dinner, etc) though sad.gif

It's probaby not the whole week that is booked, but just a few days (the weekend). Maybe they could stay at Dreams Tulum for a few days and then go to another resort for a few days. That way they are still with your group for part of the vacation.

    • 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.
