How to post a review:

Some people post their reviews in this thread, which is okay but they can be hard to find later (even if I provide the link, sometimes it just links to the first page of this thread). It's better if you start a new thread (also, then other from not from DT can see it too).

Start a new thread in this sub-forum

Wedding Reviews - Best Destination Wedding Forum

You can call it " (insert your user name here) Dreams Tulum review - (insert wedding date here)" or something like that.

How to post pictures:

To post pictures, you need to get a account with Photobucket. You upload your pictures to your photobucket account, then under each picture there will be a link (there are actually 3 links, you want the last one) and copy and paste the link into your thread. The images will show up in the thread, even though the photos are actually located on photobucket. If you have serious problems doing this you can always email me your pictures (send me a PM and I will send you my email address) and I will do it for you. Another option is to use any other photo website (picasa web album, snapfish, etc) and provide the link for the whole album. If you do that, the photos won't show up directly in the thread, it will be a link that
brings people to another page to go see your photos.

All,

 

Max and I got married on Friday, May 1st in Tulum and it was amazing!!!! We had 24 of the 32 people show. 8 cancelled because the media scared the crap out of everyone! We were actually interviewed by WGN news at the Chicago airport when we were leaving to go to Mexico. The whole thing was pretty interesting, but it didn't stop us!! When we got to the resort it was pretty packed, but by the end of the week it was empty. They closed sections of the resort down. I think they said it was maybe at 20% capacity. No one was wearing masks or anything like that. It ended up being the most amazing time!! I just posted my review:

I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location for my dream wedding. It was everything I hoped for and more!

We purchsed our satin bows from wedding linens direct home page and they were perfect!!! Loved them and they worked out to be $60 USD for 40. The BM's wore yellow dresses and we used turquoise bows and they were stunning!

You definitely don't have to use the same colour!

FYI - The satin chair bows on weddinglinensdirect.com are on sale right now! We just ordered 50 and it was $60 - including shipping. This was definitely the best price that we had found in our search.

Does anyone know if the menus have changed? We were sent our list for the gold menu and it is completely different from what SunBride has posted on the first page...

Hi everyone,

 

I was just reading some of the latest posts and I see that some of the brides are bringing their own bows/sash for the chairs...do you suggest we all bring them? I thought they were included in the set-up?!

The resort can provide bows, and they do have a pretty decent color selection, but it can be cheaper to bring your own, and also it ensures you get the exact color you want.

The resort will charge you $2 each sash so it might be cheaper to bring your own

Thanks for letting me know! I thought it was included in the ultimate package. I will check out the website for the bows.

I remember reading somewhere on the forum info on what decorations to bring. I am planning to have my reception at the seaside grill. From what I have read, it is much cheaper to brink my own decor from home. Does anyone know where I can find out that info?

 

Thanks!

    • look like Is really amazing cloth bag.I like it
    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
