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

Recommended Posts

Cant wait to see some new reviews on here, i've been MIA for a while but I cant seem to find any recent reviews since I was last here!!!

 

I have a question regarding contracts. A few of you have mentioned receiving contracts or referred to making sure your choices for certain things are in your contracts well Im getting married in 4 months, I booked way back in early 2008 and as yet I have not received anything resembling a contract.

 

Other than a confirmation email in 2008 when I first booked and another confirmation reply approx 3 months ago when I forwarded our travel details I have had no information other than what I learn here from you girls.

 

Q. Should I be worried?

 

Q. Do I have to request a contract?

 

Q. Based on your experience when should I expect to receive a contract?

 

Q. What kind of info should be in my contract?

 

Q. When I booked in 2008 I was not required to pay a deposit and still have never been asked for one, is this possibly why I dont have a contract?

 

Thanks Ladies. X

Wow, I'm glad the recent brides had such good reviews - I am considering this resort too!

 

If anyone has any recent pics, it would be great if you could email me! onyemao@yahoo.com

 

Also, what kind of rates were you able to secure for your guests for November? I was thinking of next June, but the quotes are rather high. What is November like? Thanks

Northern Flasher - I wouldn't worry. You will receive an email from your wedding coordinator 4-6 weeks in advance of your date with a "contract". It is not actually a contract, but a questionnaire you fill out where you specify your choices on things like food, reception location, etc. Also you give them your guest count, arrival info, etc. And you can pretty much change things when you arrive and meet with your WC as well. You don't get a contract until you actually sit down with the WC and see the costs written out in front of you.

 

Aliceo - my guests mostly booked through Apple Vacations in the US, and paid $665 for five nights or $770 for six nights (not including air). We booked air separately, as guests were flying from different airports.

 

Hope this helps!

YES, this is the perfect way to put it, I 100% agree. It's all what you make of it. Dreams Tulum may not be the best choice but it is a very very good one.

So we got married at Dreams on November 14. Some things I wish we'd done differently, some were perfect... Waiting for the pics from Sol.

 

I want to thank everyone, especially SunBride and Blkatz for all the information that was shared here!

Congratulations! I hope you come back and write a full review, I'm sure the future brides would love to hear more about the things you wish you did differently. I know for me, the best way you can thank me for the help this provided you is to write a review to keep the good karma going and help future brides.

Hi girls!

 

I'm still fairly new to this site. I think it's amazing! Everyone has such great ideas!!

 

Quick question about a sound system. I've notice some people have been using an ipod dock and that's been enough and others have been renting the sound system for the ceremony and reception. We have about 30 people coming to our wedding. Do you think it would be fine to just use our ipod dock or is their sound system worth paying for?

 

Thanks guys!! and I can't wait for the new reviews!!

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
