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

Recommended Posts

Hello from a Dreams Tulum Bride WannaBe :)

I've read such fabulous reviews about the place from everyone here that I have been looking into getting married at DT next April (probably somewhere between the 25th and 28th depending on travel availability.).

 

Lately, though, I've gotten rather nervous. When I've written to the resort, I've heard back from Aurora and she tells me there is no flexibility in their packages (so the reviews I'd read from people who were trading videographers for more photos, etc... apparently no longer stand). Does anyone know if this is true? I was hoping to skip having cake since dessert is included and try to get extra time with musicians or extra photos or something.

 

Also, I'm told that because my wedding is in 2010, they can't confirm the pricing of the packages (I'm leaning towards the Ultimate Package but with extras like firedancers - quoted at $500USD for 15 mins!!!) and once I book it could go up significantly... which worries me since I haven't won the lottery... yet.

 

Am I panicking for nothing? I wish I had an unlimited budget but the more I read, the higher the prices seem to be getting. Is it just Aurora? Any advice for a DT bride wannabe? :)

when I first emailed with them they said the same thing-they were totally unflexible with things. As I got closer to my date they became more and more flexible. For example, we had both photographer and video from Claudia Rodriguez and both came in our package. I was able to have the resort photographer take pictures for my Friday night dinner.

Also, the fire dancers are VERY expensive and I was quoted the same price.

Phewf - thank you so much for putting my mind at ease. I guess I just need to stop being a control freak/planner and just relax and hope for the best.

 

Now I just need to find a travel agent and get this party started!

I just got an email from Aurora for a copy of our birth certificates for the legal ceremony? I thought we just needed our passports? She said the judge wants it. Did anyone else get this email for a civil ceremony?

I just got the same email from Aurora! We were under the impression we just needed our tourist card and pass-port as well. Luckily we both ordered our Canadian long form birth certificates in February, just in case. Mexico apparently doesn't accept the Canadian short form one (credit card size). I'll scan it at work today to email it to her...

I scanned and emailed her my fiance's short form birth certificate and my immigration and citizenship forms and she just emailed back to say they are both ok. I'm probably going to bring a notorized copy down just in case.

We're leaving in 12 days!!!! cheesy.gif

Yikes my wedding is so close, I was wondering if anyone could tell me about the following locations for cocktail on Terrace Lobby and the Reception Dinner by the beach close to the Relax Pool?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
