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

Recommended Posts

Hey gals!

 

Funny that the iPod discussion came out. I have been thinking of ditching the DJ idea and just using an iPod. I have about 35 people coming and the Dreams DJ is $150 and hour. If all he does is play the music (their DJ does not MC or make announcements), it makes sense to save the money, get an iPod going, and have a friend or relative MC the night.

 

What do you think? Does it sound good or should I keep the DJ?

 

Brooke, your wedding is right before mine! Good luck and I hope you have a great time....almost there!

Could you guys let me know, on average, what your guests paid per night at Dreams Tulum? Just looking for an estimation, so I know what my guests should expect. I know that the prices vary during the time, and obviously by year, but knowing what to expect would really help =) Thanks!

My guests are paying $150 per person per night for the Hacienda Garden View and $185 per night for the Junior Suite Dreams Garden View. I kept on my TA to get the resort to match the prices I was finding on discount websites and she was really great about negotiating with Sandra. I am really happy with the pricing. She also got the kids rate down to $35 per day although I pushed hard to get the kids for free. I used the resorts reservation system as a way to monitor pricing for the time of year. The resort is like airlines in the way that they will post the lowest price until so many people book and then it will go up. Check on that and use as a base price and then compare against other discount travel sites. Having a TA offers a huge advantage in my opinon.

so Tiffany gave the rate for shoulder season; when I went down this summer (off season) we paid $89/per person for the hacienda suite and $109/per person for the Dreams Junior Suite.

 

for our wedding in January (high season) our guests are paying $175/per person for the hacienda suite and $222/per person for the Dreams Junior Suite

I'm definitely going for just the iPod instead of a DJ. Ive heard that they don't do much and I'm ok with just having our iPod, I'd rather have music we pick and if I pick it and have the DJ play it, I will have done the hardest part!

Good luck on your wedding Carina! Mine is two months from today!

We do things a little different in Canada, in that we pay for our airfare, land transfer and hotel as a package. In total, our guests are paying $1726 (7 nights) to fly from Ottawa to Cancun the first week of May, and that includes transfer to and from the hotel. Children are paying just over $1000.

Just look into renting the speaker system (not really a system, just one speaker!) as I expect the ipod dock won't be loud enough for a good party.

Hello ladies,

I have been meaning to suggest applevacations to those who haven't booked yet. My FI and I usually use them for other vacations so we found a TA that had apple and did DW. We are getting married May 27 2009 at dreams and our total package with air and all transfers for the basic rooms per couple are 3116.00 That is for 7 nights and 8 days. Apple is great because our entire family will be flying a charter down together. They will be getting their own transportion to the resort with no stops in between. A handful of my guest will be flying back after 5 days but will also be on a charter and all these will be direct flights to Cancun and back to Ohio. Just thought I would put that out there! Happy Planning..... oh and the prices for the 5 night people were 1,126.00 per person.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
