congrats on being a tulum bride!!!

 

 

Tisha i would take money out of the flowers also. Also, are you paying for a DJ through dreams tulum? If so, it is much cheaper to get someone like DJ Mannia or an outside vendor. I found that out when I was looking at overall costs.

Thanks ladies...this has been so helpful!!
If I were you, I would cut back by going with the regular restaurant menu, rather than the silver or gold menu, that way you only pay 20$ per guest.

If you need to cut down more than that, you could have your reception in the buffet restaurant. A few brides have done that and have been happy with the results.

Another suggestion would be to not have a cocktail hour (if you are having one). Just tell all your guests to meet you at one of the bars and take advantage of the all-inclusive benefits of the resort. It's pretty much the same thing except that you won't have servers just for your group.

Hi everyone. DT is letting me have 2 entrees at my reception as long as I give them a head count of each before hand. Now I know that some past brides have also been allowed to do this as well. I am just wondering, how do the waiters know which guest gets what entreehuh.gif Can any past brides let me know how this was handled? Thanks :)

Yep, check out page 1 of the thread, it's all explained under the reception section.

Not a lot of people go with this option, because they want the fancy 5 course meal (especially if 20 people are free and they only have to pay for a few extra people). So that's why people don't talk about it much on this thread.

Hi Joanna I actually have three entrees-- two from the list and a vegetable lasagna for the vegetarians. I am just going to play it by year and given them a list when i arrive and we have place cards that they can see the table list with the food. I think they can handle it.

I've been digging through this thread for weeks now (thank you everyone for such a wealth of information!!!) but I think I still have some questions. Time is running out, and I still have so many things undecided, so I have to rely on your mercy ladies.

 

My question is: what time does the evening entertainment start? Our reception begins at 6:30 pm (it's a small party, around 10 people), I expect we'll take an hour and a half or so to eat, and what do we do then? Can we all go watch watever is offered? What time does the disco start? Our crowd is mostly people in their 30s and 40s, so I don't expect much wild partying, but on the other hand, vacation, wedding, unlimited drinks, who knows?

 

Anyway, I'm trying to get an idea what normally happens after the reception.

We had 6 people at the wedding and after we were done eating we went to the bar and continued to enjoy ourselves. The night of my wedding they also had fire dancers performing. We didnt make it to the disco but definitely had a ton of drinks by the bar!

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
