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

Recommended Posts

When I was down they told me that cocktail hour was all you could drink and the hor'douvers equaled three per person. In the end we didn't go with the hor'douvers and folks just ended up eating together at the sea side grill.

Just want to let everyone know, I'm not sure if anyone else had this question but I did...
Aurora sent me the wedding packet where I need to fill out all of my information before the wedding. One of the parts was- I needed to fill out an excel of all of my guests attending, and their flight info.
I have had a lot of problems with both mine and my fiance's family/friends either 1) never sending back their RSVP and we need to keep calling them to get an answer or 2) they sent back the RSVP but never booked, now a year after we sent out the invitations the price has gone up (obviously) so now they don't know if they are going to come or not.
So we don't really have a final head count for me to send back to her. So I asked her, if I put a name down as they are coming, but then don't actually end up coming, do I need to pay for their plate? (We have AROUND 45 people coming, but I don't know exactly) She said no, we can give the final count once we get there and pay then.

I see all of the pictures of the weddings here at Dreams Tulum, and everyone for the most part has bridesmaids and a bunch of family there with them. It's hard to explain what my fiance and I have gone through with our family and friends, but to make a long story short- we have no bridal party, some of our closest friends couldn't be more Inconvenienced, and aren't even coming, While others are complaining- "why are you getting married so far away this is soo much". (the weddings of our friends we've been in, we've never "skimped" on them, always gone above and beyond and given more than we could even afford) The only family members that are coming are our parents and his brother, all of our Aunts and Uncles, my sister and brother, think its ridiculous that we're getting married in Mexico and don't want to get their passports or have any desire to go to Mexico so they're not coming.
I just wonder if anyone had this problem, I hope not, but I hope I'm not the only weirdo who isn't important enough to most of the people in my life? Don't get me wrong, we do have a handful of people who are excited, practically my whole office is coming because they're excited to go to Mexico and drink tequilla. Thank goodness or else we'd have no guests at the wedding. I'm so sorry, this isn't the place to rant about these things, but just yesterday my "best friend" from college EMAILED me she isn't coming because she waited too long to book and now it's too much $. My best friend... good thing we decided against the bridal party. Sorry again for ranting, I'm just at a loss.
Oh- Don't worry about that. My fiance and I are PAYING for everyone's travel and yet they STILL complain - why are you having it so far away - why did you pick a resort so far away from the airport, etc. At least you have a group of people who are excited to be there. Don't let the others ruin your mood. Cheers!

hey guys my name is Danielle and I am getting married on May 14th 2010 at Dreams Tulum.

I have currently bee working with Auora in their wedding deoartment, she has been a great help but I am just wanting some advice-ideas. We will be having 40 guests at the resort for our wedding which I'm sure you are all aware of can get pricy, after adding in costs for the guests. Did anyone seem to get help on rates and prices?

we have been communicating through e-mail which is hard, I've sent photo's and I still seem to be having a hard time communicatinh what I want for my special day. I've been asking questions on decorating, cake, and stay and the only response I seem to be getting is, you can bring it or for an additional cost we can do that. I understand they are a business and they need to make money, but I donno.

my fiance and I went to mexico last may and viewed the resort and it's amazing so if anyone is considering dreams tulum it's an amazing resort any of the dreams.

If any one has any advice, ideas, or suggestions please feel free.. Hope everyone has a great super bowl sunday..

danielle

PS. I had to fill out the same paper work that asked for our guests information and my family as well as my fiancee's was causing travel problems. So I asked auora if I could get back to her once I received that information and that was fine with her. It seems to me Dreams is very accomidating to some things.. But if you have anyother questions feel free to ask.

POSTED MY REVIEW!!smile123.gif

*~*jmb0902's Long, Detailed, PIC FILLED Review of Dreams Tulum!*~*

Thank you so much SunBride and everyone else who has helped me out - and don't worry, I plan on hanging out to help all you planning ladies! Let me know if you have questions!
Great review! I'm completely inspired by your TTD pics!

Do you mind sharing what types of things you switched out in the package with the help of your TA? There are a couple things I really want to switch like photography since I'm bringing my own but don't know the best way to handle it.

The most major thing I had Tammy work on for me was getting the videographer (b/c we were bringing our own photog) - Natalia had origininally said "no" when I asked if I could do that, but Tammy went directly to Landy (who is now a manager I think) to discuss it and she said okay.

The only other thing I really had her do was let us get a "groom's cake" for our Rehearsal Dinner included in the cost of the $20pp instead of paying $4 pp extra for it (it kind of just substituted for the dessert that usually comes with the dinner).

    • 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?  
    • 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!
