Are you talking about how many pieces of music just for the ceremony? Or how many for the reception/dancing part?

Thanks! Suzanne

Just got back on May 7th and didn't see any topless folks! THere was a photo shoot for Elle Magazine there and there was a model who was changing in the water, so we saw a little bit of boobies then, but that was it! They tried to keep it private, but the guys were lining up to see! (And the girls too!!)

Sorry, for the ceremony!
We only are 13 people, so we're not doing a traditional reception with dancing. We'll probably just go to the disco after we eat our fill :-)

Hi everyone! I have a few questions about paper lanterns. We are planning to use the really helpful post I found on BDW http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t37079 to DIY our paper lanterns for the reception. I can't decide how many we think we'll need.

 

We don't know whether we are going to get the Seaside Grill or the beach for our reception until 2 weeks before the wedding (ugh), so we'll need to be prepared for either. So, do any former brides know how many paper lanterns you used to decorate either a Seaside Grill or beach reception? If so, can you direct me to any pictures you have? Has anyone strung Christmas lights around, also? If so, how many did you bring, and where did you use them?

 

For decorating a beach reception, I've seen pictures of other receptions that have used paper lanterns them by stringing them between large poles (you can see some at a DT wedding here: Craig Wolfrom :: Wedding Photography :: Idaho, California, Mexico, and Beyond: January 2009). Does anyone know anything about these poles? Are they already set up, or would we have to set those poles up? Is this a certain part of the beach that I would need to request in order to get this?

 

Any help you have would be great! Thanks!

We had our reception on the beach and I think we used about 16 or 18 smaller lanterns. They were strung b/w 3 palm trees with the tables around the outside and the centre for dancing. It was quite windy when we got married so they were blowing all over the place but none the less looked fantastic! Some of the palm trees already have the rope lighting around them...or at least the ones on the beach near the seaside grill did so we did not need to bring any extra.

I shared the lanterns with Teesha and their reception was in the seaside grill and I think they had enough.

Hope that helps!

There are a ton of threads about make-up around the forum, I suggest you check out those ones rather than starting another discussion about that here (just since it's not really a Dreams Tulum thing).

Here is an example of one of those threads:

I just made the deposit and booked my date at Dreams Tulum! So excited!!!! :) Thanks for posting that link to the photos! They got me thinking of a few questions myself:

 

1. one of the pictures has resort guests in the background lounging in

chairs... how do we avoid that? haha

2. the couples seems to be having their reception on the beach (which is what we want) and they seem to be dancing just fine (on the sand?) righthuh.gif

there is no need to get the "dance floor" that is offered in the wedding options, right?

3. what decorations does the resort provide? do they offer paper lanterns or do we have to bring them with us?

 

In terms of your post, how come you don't know whether you're reception will be on the beach or at Seaside Grill? I "reserved" the beach for my reception, but does that not mean that i am guaranteed to get it??

Hey ladies,

I have been searching the site today trying to find the forum that talks about the ceremoney readings and vows. I stumbled across the forum a few months ago and liked a lot of the things that I had read in there and now that I need it, I can't find it.

Some people had absolutely wonderful readings and vows and I just need some inspiration. If anyone has seen it lately or can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
