This is strange....
We have the Ultimate package, getting married in 17 days. Maybe it's a new requirement for weddings taking place as of a certain date? We were told "no need" when we asked about a deposit, and that we'll settle the account when we check in. I hired Luxe Destination Events and the wedding coordinator there, Lisa, is the one who has been in communication with Aurora, our wedding coordinator at Dreams Tulum. I just left Lisa a voicemail asking why we didn't have to put down a deposit when other couples are being asked to do it. Very weird indeed!

I looked in the wedding guide of 2009, and it is does state new payment policy and deposit, perhaps when you booked it was not required at that time. I do believe that the $500 will be deducted from the final balance. In any case, you shouldn't have any problems! Your wedding is already all planned! Good luck!

Don't forget to write a review and post some pics for the rest of us anxious bride-to-be's!!!

Take care!

Hi everyone,

 

I'm about to book my DJ for the reception, for those who had DJ Mannia, how long did you book him for?

 

He sent me the contract and it states for 4 hours of work, is that enough time?

 

I know that according to the wedding guide, outdoor receptions must end by 10:30...is that really true? I am asking because my ceremony is at 3pm, so I'm guessing my reception will start around 6pm, the DJ will play from 6-10? What about the rest of the time after that?

I am in the process of trying to decide exactly what I want my centerpieces to look like and I was wondering if anyone had any problems with the resort not being able to get different types of vases. Do they give you any options or did you have to bring your own?

Hi everyone,

 

I just got an e-mail from Aurora stating that the reception only last 3hrs? Is this the case with all of you? She told me my reception would start at 6:30 and finish at 9:30huh.gif? Ummm...that is a bit short no? Especially when I have a DJ booked until 10:30huh.gif

Hey there, this is the standard timing apparently, our reception is 7-10PM. We're only 14 people though, so didn't hire a DJ. Not sure how possible it is to have the reception time extended. We're just planning on hoping over to the disco with our guests who are not too exhausted at that point!

    • 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.
