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

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm about to book my photographer (Citalli from Claudia Rodriguez photography), I inquired about doing a TTD session the following day and she quoted me 1000$ USD for about 2 hours of work. Is this the going rate for the TTD sessions? I thought it was a bit pricey considering I am paying close to 4000$ USD for the previous day...plus I am canadian and our exchange rate sucks so $4000 USD for me is 4500$....

 

I have already asked her for a package deal...still waiting for her response. Otherwise, does anyone know who I can book for a TTD session only at a cheaper price?

 

Thanks!

Hi again,

 

My FI and I would like to have a horse (preferably white) at the end of the ceremony for us to exit on. Does anyone know where I can organize this? Either through an outside vendor or via the resort?

 

Thanks

 

Jessica

I had a TTD with Erik from Claudia's team and I will tell you that he was amazing. Yes, you might be able to find someone cheaper but you will also not get as great quality. I just got my pictures back and we were blown away by how amazing they came out.

Hi Girls! Had a quick question for you all...I have a laptop I'd like to bring to Tulum but Im not sure about the security in the rooms. I read somewhere on here that the safes are kinda small....does anyone have more information on keeping laptops in the safes? (size of safe?)

 

Thanks! Leaving in 3 days!!!!

Does anyone know of any xel ha discount tickets? We really want to go and take the kids and our group but it's $75 adult to get in ($37.50 kids) and I'd love to find a discount of some kind.

 

Also I remember reading on here of someone who order sandwiches packed to go on an outing ... does anyone know more about that? I'd love to take lunch and eat on the beach after touring the ruins.

 

I'm down to the wire ... we leave in 11 days.

 

Thanks for all of the help ladies! *SmiLes* Suzanne

both Jay and I put our laptops in the safe and we were fine. A few times we left them out and they were fine also.

I believe our reception is 7 to 10:00 also, but I have heard that other brides have successfully gotten it extended a half hour or so.

Has anyone else who is getting married at the end of June had really slow communication with the coordinators this month? We emailed Aurora on June 2, 8, and 11th and have not gotten a response from her. This is so frustrating because we leave on the 24th, and need to wait for her response to finish some stuff - including a mass email to our guests who have been asking us questions we don't have answers to. Plus, they have STILL NOT confirmed whether we have the Seaside Grill, and now we are less than 2 weeks out. Ugh.

Our reception is the same length....and I am sure I will see you in the Disco - because 10PM is way too early for some of our friends and family to call it quits :o)

Yes, I have had the same problem. I have asked several questions...three different times starting back on the 2nd of June as well. I really need to know the conformation of our menu so I can get those printed up since we leave on Saturday...

Also does anyone know if we can pay before we go down? One of our family members who can not go because of work wants to pay for the wedding as our gift...so I REALLY hope that he is able to do that...

I am also bummed because we are not allowed to do the bonfire as of two weeks ago because of sea turtle nesting season. I have asked how to set up a privite event/ make resv. in one of the resturants and still haven't heard a word...STRESSED!!

Lindz when are you leaving, I know we are getting married on the same day (So Exciting) did they confirm your reception location?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
