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

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anyone was charged or will be charged for having flowers for the walkway during the ceremony? I am using the ultimate package and I am wondering if that's included.

 

Also, I just received an email from Landy about some hanging lanterns I was thinking about using to decorate the reception area with. She said they would charge me $80-$100 just to hang them! Has anyone else been told this?

Hi Jerzygirl, I think with the ultimate package, you can choose between flowers for the aisle (walkway) OR a flower arrangement on the gazebo. At least that's my understanding.

As for the lanterns, I haven't heard specifically the cost of hanging them, as I haven't inquired about that, however, I was told that any "extras" I wanted to be put around for the receptions (decorations, favors, etc), would be $150. I think some girls have had the lanterns and other things done, and they have only been charged the $150 extra setup fee, and that's it. Maybe they are changing their prices and adding more, but have you checked their wedding guide? Does it say anything about that in there?

Is there anyone that decided not to have a reception? We are getting married in the chapel at noon, and thought of having a cocktail hour directly afterwards and then a reception on the beach or at the dolphin pool at about 6 that night. But quite honestly, it's a getting a bit pricey and stressful - which is why I decided on a destination wedding anyway, less stress and less money. Has anyone simply had a cocktail hour and dinner world cafe? How did it go?

I was never given any price for any type of decorations I wanted or told of a "set up" fee directly from DT. I know that many of the girls here have been charged $150 like you side. I looked over the new guide and there is no mention of extra fees for things like this. There is a set up fee on there but it's for the ceremony set up.

I think i'm just going to forget about the lanterns anyway so it's one less thing to pack! The main reason I wanted them in the first place was for extra lighting since I am having my reception by the adult pool or beach.

I think there were a couple of brides who had dinner at the world cafe. Look at the list on the first page for the list of brides since some say were their reception took place. You can also do a search for their wedding reviews to get an idea of how it went. I don't remember hearing any complaints about it. It's not a private dinner, but i think they try and put your party towards one area of the room.

thanks :)
My MOH and I had hair and makeup appointments at 12 PM at the spa. It finished just after 1 PM. The ceremony was at 3 PM (took about 30 minutes). Pictures took about 1.5 hours and then cocktail hour was at 5 PM for an hour. Everyone went to the Sugar Reef Bar for drinks while we had pictures. Dinner was at 6 PM. Hope this helps you with your planning.
Cheers!

I'm also struggeling to get a solid answer on this. As I wanted them to do some extra decorations on the arch, bows on the chairs (I'm bringing my own fabric) and lanterns for the reception. They've said $150 a few times. And I'm not sure if they mean $150 per item I want done, or for all the extras together. Let me know if you get a solid answer, I will as well!

I'm still new to this forum, I tried to quote the response to this message as well... hopefully it worked.


You mentioned that guests hung out at the sugar reef bar while you had photo's and then cocktails started at 5pm. During cocktail hour, did you have access to a bar? Was it a private bar for your wedding? Was there limited drinks? Or did you just use the resort bar? Maybe I'm totally crazy, but I don't understand how the bar works. I know that our reception comes with some "cocktails" and some dinner wine... but what about other drinks? My fiance is a former hockey player and 1/2 our guests are hockey boys, and they'll want to have a bar available. Am I going crazy? We've booked the Seaside Grill for our reception... not sure where the cocktails will be.

Thanks for anyone who can help me! :)

Hmm... I'm considering the same thing and am confused about how much the extra setup costs are. I'm considering putting strings of clear Xmas lights up for the reception (xmas lights should be on sales soon!=P). But if it's $100-150, might as well rent tikki lights from DT, no?

BTW, I found out that's is $3/chair, if you want to put up your own chair sashes at the ceremony. Seems really pricey! Any suggestion on what to do to make it cheaper? The plain white chair covers look awful by themselves.

    • Two of my friends are going to get married next month. Out of them one is suffering from serious teeth issue. He is having bleeding gums along with jaw pain and swelling, particularly around the gums or around the jaw. Because of the teeth issue, he is not able to make the arrangements for the marriage. Is it safe to carry out tooth extraction during this period of time? How painful is dental implants during and after the procedure? Will he be able to eat food after tooth extraction? Please share your views and suggestions. Thank you!
