I am at Secrets Maroma Beach now and loving every moment of it. I will post a review and photos when I get home next week. Again...absolutely no stressing is needed because once you get there everyone takes care of everything!
Shannon thanks for the update! this is great to hear! I can't wait to read your review!popcorn.gif

Does anyone know if the WC does the official introduction of "mr. and mrs. ..." at the reception? Or does the dj or a guest do it?
Yes they do the introduction at the very end of the ceremony

I guess in the guide, it isn't listed under the "Wedding Dinner" but under "Group Dinner". I'll see if I can find where she wrote it in email...

OK, found it. From Landy:

IN RELATION WITH YOUR QUESTION PLEASE CHECK MY ANSWER


Advise if pricing is
correct (10 ppl free, $20/person for additional 20-30 guests)? NO, THE 20
USD PER PERSON PLUS SERVICE AND TAX, WOULD BE FOR EACH PEOPLE

I was just wondering if this applies to any package or for the free package only? I was under the assumption that you paid for only the people above the first 20 with the dreams of love package

Hi Starr -

I'm a May 2010 bride too!

We are doing the Ultimate pakage on Friday May 7 at 5pm. I am planning a site visit to the resort on October 1 to go over locations and details. So far all of my corespondance has been with Aurora....but I'm not sure if she is a WC or an assistant. So far, we have the date, the room, the honeymoon booked and the dress. Still working out everything else. How are your plans coming?

Amy

I am pretty sure nobody has ever paid the 750$ fee for set-up on the beach or the pool. Of all the reviews I read, and the many many times people have asked this exact question, everyone has said the fee is only for a private event in a restaurant.

No matter what package you use, you can always choose from the following dinners

20$ - regular restaurant menu
55$ - silver menu
65$ - gold menu

Depending on what package you choose, the silver or gold menu would be included for the first 20 people, and then you paid the extra fee for the additional people. If you don't want to pay 55$ or 65$ for all the additional people, then just choose something off the regualar restaurant menu and you only have to pay the 20$

Here is how I explained it on page 1 if this helps:

6) RECEPTION

(6.1) Groups policies & costs

Dreams Tulum defines a “group†as being more than 10 people. Group dinner policies and extra charges apply for any event (wedding, welcome dinner, etc).

If your group is 10 or less people, none of the below apply as these are policies for groups only. So you can eat in any restaurant, using the regular menu, for no extra fee. They will set-up a nice table for your group to be together.

Any group event will have a service charge of 20$ (18$ in 2007-08 ) per person for the regular restaurant menu. The service charge is to cover to extra service required to serve a large group.

If a menu special is desired, the cost is 55$ for the silver menu (45$ in 2007-08 ) or 65$ for the gold menu (55$ in 2007-08 ).

Lobster menu is 25$ in addition to the dinner charge (I assume they mean the service charge of 20$ per person.

For all group events, the official policy is that the menu must be chosen in advance and must be the same for everyone (i.e. one menu item only). Exceptions will be made for vegetarians and children. Some brides have reported being allowed to give their guests 2 choices.

Wedding in paradise package does not include dinner officially (i.e. not listed in package) but they will set up a special large table for a group of 10 or less (because less than 10 is not officially a “groupâ€) and you can eat off the regular menu for free. If you have more than 10, you pay 20$ per person only for the extra people (i.e. if you have 15 people, you pay for the extra 5 people not for the first 10). BUT if you want to upgrade to silver or gold menu, you pay 55$ or 65$ for every single person, including the first 10.

Dreams of love package includes silver dinner for 20 people. Each person above 20 will 55$ for the silver menu (i.e. if you have 25 people, you only pay 55$ for 5 people, not all 25). If you find this too expensive, you could forgo the silver menu and just use the normal menu for 20$ (the first 20 will still be free, so in this case with an example of 25 people, you pay 20$ for 5 people, not all 25).

Ultimate Wedding package includes gold dinner for 20 people. Each person above 20 will be subject to a charge of 65$ for the gold menu (i.e. if you have 25 people, you pay 65$ per person for 5 people, not all 25). If you find this too expensive, you could forgo the gold menu and choose the silver menu (55$) or normal menu (20$) and just pay those fees for each person above 20 people (the first 20 are always free).

I have never heard before of having to pay the 20$ for the first 10 people. However, when I ask past brides for detailed cost breakdowns of all their additional costs, I often don't get very detailed information (for their list, or in their review) so it's hard to know for sure. Personally we were only 10 exactly so we didn't have to pay. I assumed that if we were 11 we only would have paid for 1 person (as I explained above).

I think you pay for everyone only if it's not your wedding reception, i.e. for your welcome dinner or whatever other event. But for your reception the first 10 are free with Wedding in Paradise and your first 20 free with Dreams of Love or Ultimate.
