I'm also wondering about this...one of my FI's aunts is already telling us that we should choose a different location which i really don't want to do. I have heard that most of the violence is around the Texas border, but i think a few things have happened in Cancun also. I guess we just need to stay up to date with the news.

For the girls getting married soon, please let us know on your return what it's like right now, meaning are there more police/military or any noticeable problems. Thanks!!!

The weather at the resport was beautiful and sunny everyday we were there and they still provided spa discounts in the daily activity sheet they provided to us each night at turn down. I purchased couples massages for all my guests but everyone also took advantages of the spa discounts and got mani/pedi for 60.00 as well as facial for 75.00. The spa is super nice!

Also I read here that someone is concerned about the crime. I will tell you that while we were there we felt really safe. BUT.. Someone who stayed in a room above my mother had someone climb up to their balcony and steal from their room. The hotel takes it very seriously but they do not replace the items. If you leave things out in your room they believe should go into the safe they call the Manager who itemizes everything in your room and leaves a note indicating you should use your safe.

 

I am trying to upload the photos of the resport and ceremony here and i keep getting invalid file? any suggestions?

Also the crime that others may have been hearing is in downtown Cancun. There was an article yesterday about telling spring breakers to stay away from Cancun. Dreams is gated and we felt very safe.

There are several threads about the mexico security issue. It would probably be best to discuss them there rather than have that take over this thread which is specially about Dreams Tulum.

You can't post your photos as attachments, it takes up too much of the forum's bandwidth (or whatever it is that keeps this thing running)

 

You need to create an account with photobucket. It's super easy to use. You upload your photos, and then you copy the link (the 3rd one at the bottom of each photo) into your message here and voila, photo appears!

 

Here is a thread about it

Alternatively, you can use any other online photo album, and just provide us with the link (as well as username and password if necessary, depending on which one you use).

 

Personally, i used photobucket to post like 20 of my favorites, and then I provided a link to a Picasa Web Album (no username or password required) so that people could see all my photos.

receptions usually end at 10:30 (one bride was allowed to go to 11pm) as that is the time music has to end at (so as to not bother the resort guests).

If your ceremony is at 5pm you are probalby doing dinner at 6 or 7 right? So probably about 2 hours for dinner and then 2 hours for dancing or something like that? It depends what you "do" at your reception. Some people have speeches or other activities going on.

Pics !

Let me know if you have trouble seeing
I'm happy you were able to figure out how to upload them! Your set-up looks beautiful, I love the bright pink. Do you have wedding photos taken by the photographer to share? You know that's what the brides want to see the most as they love seeing the work of the resort photographer. It's good that you were able to get his name (Reuben, for anyone who missed it in the photo captions) because it confirms for us that there are at least 3 different photographers (Reuben, Philemon and Andrea)

We were married at 4:30pm- perfect time. The sun was setting but we had plenty of light for pictures. We used the resort photographer with the Ultimate Wedding Package. We booked the wedding in 2008 but were given the 2008-09 prices- BUT we were not charged the extra 10 % and 15 % taxes. The only extras we were charged for were for 3 kids meals- $20.00 each. $15.00 for hair flower and $80.00 to hang the paper lanterns.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
