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

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies...so I know I've been MIA lately (super stressed), but I have been reading all the posts as they get forwarded to my email account.

 

I do have a question though, does anyone have a good sample of a welcome letter. I'm having a hard time writing mine and am lookin for some inspiration. Any help would be great!

Teesha your wedding day is almost here! Try not to stress, you will definitely regret it afterwards. Everything will be fine, and the stuff that doesn't work out won't matter.

You may have better luck with the welcome letter thingy in another part of the forum, where you can get responses from all brides rather than just DT brides. My newsletter and another bride's is posted in the member contribution section in page 1, but my newsletter doesn't really have a "welcome letter" per say, it's more just a bunch of usefull info.

Good luck Rachel!!!! Can't wait to see pics when you get back!

 

I know I'm sooooo delinquent in posting my review, I'm busier now than I was BEFORE the wedding! As I type this I'm still at work and it's after 9pm! I'll post it soon, though, promise. I'm sorry!

 

Teesha - I created a welcome letter and a THINGS TO DO in RM that you could bastardize...send me your email address and I'll pass it along.

 

Happy planning to all the brides with weddings coming up soon! smile03.gif

Well, I am officially a DT bride now!

Type of ceremony:Symbolic

I have a question on the reception/private fee. If we use the Dream of Love or Ultimate package, do we have to pay the private reception fee of $750 to have a group in the ballroom, on the beach, etc? We will have about 40 guests.

 

Thanks for all of this information!!

Maggie

Not the ballroom, beach or pool, but to have them close down one of the restaurants yes.

Oh wait, sorry, just realized you said you are using the Wedding in Paradise package. I don't think we ever received word on that yet. Most brides use the other 2 packages. You should double check.

 

You will of course have to pay for the meals for the guests. If you are using the silver menu it will be 40x55$ or the gold menu 40x65$. If you want to just use the regular restaurant menu it would be 40x20$.

 

If they charge you the 750$ for the private reception, it would be in addition to the meal charge. But I would expect they won't charge you it, I think it's purely to close the restaurants.

    • 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!
