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

Recommended Posts

Hello! I got engaged January 17, 2009 and we've decided on a destination wedding at Dreams Tulum! We wanted something simple with not a lot of planning, but just choosing a destination was such a project. It feels so good to finally know where in the world we will marry :) We just confirmed the date so we're early in planning the logistics, but I'll write what I know...


Username: alysalynn

Names: Alysa and Gabriel

Date & Time: October 29, 2009, 3 p.m.

Wedding package: Dreams in Paradise (may upgrade, TBD)

Wedding extras (and cost charged): not sure just yet

Type of ceremony: Civil (I prefer symbolic but my fiance wants it to feel 'official')

Coordinator: we've been dealing with Aurora, but I suppose Landy will be coordinator

Number of guests: probably about 40, maybe more depending on who books

Ceremony location & time: Beach, 3 p.m.

Cocktail hour location and time: ?

Reception location: Beach or Seaside Grill

Photographer: I thought we'd just use DT but I'm blown away by some photography I've seen on here, so we'll see what our budget allows

Videographer: don't know if we really want a video

Wedding website (link): we're using destinationweddings.com (I've had a great experience with them so far) - personal site in the works

Special arrangements / activities: we'd love a welcome event with a bonfire, and maybe a group cruise/snorkeling excursion


I'm happy to find this site. And so excited for October! Let me know if you're marrying around the same time - I'd love to share ideas and meet up at the resort.


Thank you!

welcome Alysa and congrats on choosing a resort!


Has anyone else heard of Aurora? Is she a new coordinator there?


You should check out the bride list on page 1 and send a private message to any brides getting married around the same date as you.

im still on the fence about where i want the reception----has anyone had the reception in the ballrooms? I just want to make sure everyone will be comfortable. It feels more romantic on the beach but I want to let everyone have a chance to dance. Anyone else have these thoughts?

Cograts Alysa! I am getting married the day after you. What day are you arriving? We are arriving on the 25th and staying to 11/01 then going to Cozumel for the next week. Nice to see someone else on the forum is going to be there around the same time...see you soon!
