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

Recommended Posts

Okay, to anyone who has been married/been to Dreams Tulum, can you tell me if the ipod docking station is removable? I'm thinking we could take it down to the pool to do a first dance after the ceremony, but I'm not sure if we can. Also, what batteries does it take. A while back someone mentioned AAAs or Ds but I don't think anyone confirmed it. Help?

 

Thanks!

I think the Ipod docking stations USED to be removable, but they must have been stolen quite frequently because I hear they are bolted down now. I've read what girls commonly do is bring down their own Ipod station from home (you can buy them from anywhere between $100-500) or most likely borrow one from your friends or family. They aren't very loud though, so hopefully you have a small wedding group (<20).

Sorry to ask this once again..but to any of you recently married brides (who seem to disappear after getting married forever!) - did any of you inquire about the $20 restaurant menu for your reception, instead of the silver or gold?

I will keep asking this question until it is answered :P My wedding group is already 70 people so the meal costs are very significant.

Can you guys help me with the following question…

 

1-If I rent chair bows from the resort, do I still have to pay a set-up fee for them to put them on?

 

2-For the cocktail hour the ultimate package comes with a mexican trio can I use a Caribbean trio instead?

 

3-Does anyone have the schdule for theme nights?

I am doing the free package option and paying the additional site fee for our reception. Aurora has told us that the white tablecloths are "free" up to 20 guests, and then $18 per table...same for the napkins. I am pushing back, but there has been a lot of back and fourth. Hopefully the white options will stay free and my only charge will be the $150 setup fee.

To have an orchid in a vase, I was quoted $30 per stem.

Anyhow, I'm working on other options...just wanted to let y'all know.

Tara I think that this is the first time anyone will be charged for the white tablecloths and napkins unless other brides just haven't mentioned it before. Do you think it is b/c you are using the free option? That could add several hundred dollars to some of our tabs. Aurora definitely does not seem to want to give any freebies away but it seems like white should be free. Please keep us updated on what you end up working out.

I won't have 70 people, but will definitely have over the 20 that are included with any of the packages so the $20 option would be really helpful to me too. Hopefully someone is able to take advantage of that and let's us know!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • 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.
