"Im getting married May 29,2010 @ six PM I will be more than happy to do this"

 

That is great! I sent an email to jmb0902 about the potential to buy some things from her,when she is done with them (wedding date: Nov. 28th, 2009). She lives about an hour and 15 min. from me so I could easily go pick up the items she is willing to part with. Just like her, I too liked Starlitk's set up with the paper lanterns (light green, white, aqua), and chair sashes (aqua), so I am hoping to get the hand me downs and we can share the costs, or work out something! I will shoot you an email when I get more information from JoAnn!

 

Congrats! I look forward to meeting you Memorial Day weekend 2010! Whoop whoop!

Please feel free to email me any questions or concerns you come across (hoping that we don't have any issues).....but if we do, we can work together too resolve them! I got your back if you have mine! ;-)

 

TTYS! :)

They did tell me it would cost $150 to set up paper lanterns. But, I've never heard of the $2/person. Where are you ordering your sashes from?

hey ladies! I have a food question for any of the past brides that are still around....i have the gold menu and was thinking about choosing the "vanilla puff pastry cake with cognac sauce" for dessert. Now my question is...is it really like a cake or is it more of a cream puff?? if anyone had this as their dessert, please let me know what you thought of it. If it's a cake than I don't think I want it since we are also having a wedding cake.

Hi Ladies,

In regards to the extra charges ($2 per person) for chair sashes, set up, etc. I was quoted the same thing by Aurora for July 2010. She said if they supply chair sashes, it was $5 per person, but if I bring them, then its $2 per person for set up of sashes on chairs.
Also,she said if I choose the dreams ultimate package, the white tulle on the gazebo is free, but if I bring colored tulle, then it's $60 for the setup. If I choose the free package, then I have to pay $150 for white tulle on the gazebo, because they don't provide that with the free package. That seems a little strange to me...they would just have a bare gazebo for your wedding unless you pay the $150 extra? Also, with the free package if you bring your own tulle, they will charge you $60 to set it up. Has anyone else who had the free package recently experienced this? Did you have to pay the $150 (if you didn't bring tulle) or $60 (if you did bring your own tulle) to have the gazebo decorated?

In case you are interested... the resort has a big book full of fabric samples available for bows and table settings for rent. They have different sheens, olors and patterns. When I priced renting versus buying, sewing and transporting myself... the costs arent too different.

Hi everyone!!

The attached link is to photobucket where I put a few photos of 2 weddings at Dreams Tulum that I had the privelage of looking in on. The photos show:

1. The format of the flowers on the canopy (3 clusters) which is an option for the Ultimate package

2. Flowers used to create an aisle which is the other option for an ultimate package. I wa told that if you want both, there is an additional $150 charge.

3. A reception table set up at the Dolphin pool

4. A close up of the white table cloth that is included in package.

5. The "sound system" --- it's a large speaker on a pole. I was quoted $160 for reception (including classical music played while the guests are being seated) and $220 for the reception - you supply music

 

Other items I found out:

1. They have a huge book of fabrics to use for bows, table cloths ect. I asked for a sheer overlay, in a custom color (color I want is not in the book) and was quoted $20 per table.

2. Bouquet... All of the photos of the resort bouquets are just "models". You choose the general shape of the one you like and then they create it in your colors.

3. Locations for receptions/cocktail hour... we toured them all and you pretty much can't go wrong with any!! In case it matters to you...if you choose a location by one of the pools, be prepared for people to still be wimming in it during your reception.

Other details -

 

- The rent candles and holders, but prices were a bit ridiculous.

- The photographer... with the package, shows up to the brides room 15 minutes before the ceremony for photos. About 5 minutes before, they take a few photos of the groom. They photograph the ceremony and then group photos afterwards. They will then take a few more photos of the bride and groom on the beach. If you want photos taken around the resort you have to - bring your own photographer or buy extra time with the resort photographer. We were quoted $440 for the 30 photo add on.

- Photos - you choose the ones you want. The ultimate package comes with 50. They will print 6 x 8's for you and give you a cd.

-Tables - your choice of round or rectangle. Each table seats 6 people.

- Rooms - Ocean Front are actually pool front.

- Rooms - If you don't want a long hike in your dress - book a room in the Dreams section not the Hacienda section. Any of the Dreams garden view rooms will be very close to the ceremony location.

 

These are all of the details I can remeber at the moment.... please let me know if you have any questions.

Seaside Grill - this is what Natalia told me.... During slow season, the grill is closed on some nights. If it is closed, you may have it as an option, no minimum numbers. If the Seaide grill is not closed - - they will section off one half of it and set up your reception table. There will be no walls or dividers, just your table and everyone elses.

Hope this helps!

    • After the wedding, the wedding dress purchased at a high price can be kept in the wardrobe, or it can be sold as a second-hand wedding dress for some cash. If you're in the market to sell your wedding dress or looking to buy a used one, you may be tempted to turn to large online marketplaces like Ebay and Craigslist. While these popular websites are great for listing and buying everyday purchases, a website specifically for used wedding dresses can probably offer you a better deal and a more user-friendly service for this very niche (and important) wedding day purchase.  Tips for Selling Used Wedding Dresses
      Whether you aren't the sentimental type or you're just savvy, selling your used wedding dress is an easy way to recoup some money from your wedding. If your dress is in good condition, consider listing it online over selling it to a thrift store, where your listing will reach a greater volume of potential buyers and can be more easily shared and promoted. A used wedding dress in great condition and under two years old can usually sell for 50 percent of the retail price. And, if your dress is a more recognizable brand like Oscar de la Renta or Vera Wang, you could make closer to 60 percent of its retail value. Even if your gown isn't designer, don't give up hope—since there's a large demand for all kinds of second hand wedding dresses, a designer label doesn't necessarily mean your dress will sell faster. Not to mention, mermaid dresses are also in high demand, so you shouldn't worry if you're not a sample size. Tips for Buying Used Wedding Dresses
      Buying a used wedding dress can be a bit of a gamble, but as long you're cautious, it's a thrifty way to snag a designer wedding dress for half the retail value. Plus, if you get lucky and buy a wedding dress from someone with a similar body type, you may not have to make too many alterations, which also cuts down on your costs. As long as the gown you found looks to be in good condition (if you can't see it in person, make sure photos show it clearly from all angles or ask to Skype with the seller to get a better look), a used wedding gown can be a terrific deal. A few tips: Since your dress will have to be custom-tailored to your body regardless, a larger size is easier to work with where alterations are concerned. Fabric can always be subtracted, but adding more fabric that perfectly matches the rest of the gown can be difficult (not to mention expensive!). And because you're getting the wedding dress for a steal, you can put some of the money you save toward making sure it fits like a glove (and some extra dry-cleaning if necessary).
    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • 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?
