Hi. I couldn't find the info on max number of guests at long tables v. round. She must have told me that in person back in December.

I pm'd you today about the 2009 guide...I cannot attach anything in a PM, so send me an email and I will forward it to you. I sent you my email address.

First, I want to apologize to every bride who is looking forward to their wedding at dreams- and my little rant about how the weather sucked etc. I am so sorry. I was a bit tipsy when I wrote that as my fiance and I were drinking tequila shots in the lobby waiting for Natalia right before I came down to go online!! so so so sorry, because the wedding was absolutely wonderful.

I did bring an email from Aurora quoting us the 2009 price, which is $100 less than the 2010 Ultimate wedding price. HOWEVER- I didn't even think of the raised tax/gratuity, they did charge us $150 for set up, plus another $3 pp set up ($135), plus $105 extra for champagne that we didn't have. I didn't realize no one had champagne until after we paid, I was asking some of our guests, then found out we didn't have it!! I've read on here to be careful when paying, but I think I was so nervous/upset about the wedding I didn't even care at the time. What is another $300?? lol

I have good news.... it was SUNNY and EXTREMELY HOT for our wedding/cocktail hour. They did move the reception into the el patio restaurant because of the fear of rain (they asked my fiance what he wanted to do, and he chose to have it inside), and thank goodness he did because there was another heavy rain storm about an hour into the reception. This past Saturday was beautiful weather, and yesterday (sunday) was beautiful sunny skies as well.

Again, I am so sorry for my post when I was down there...the wedding ended up being absolutely beautiful and amazing.

I used the photographer Samuel Luna- he was GREAT. But I won't get my pictures back for another 6 weeks. I have pictures from the welcome dinner and photo's taken from my camera I can post here.

Just not sure where to put my review and pictures?? Could somebody please let me know how/ where I can start writing this?

Hi =) we had a long table set up for 36 at our welcome dinner.... I would think they could set the same up for a reception...

Thank you! That is wonderful to hear...I really wanted the long table and 36 means that my group will fit!

So happy to hear that in the end things worked out well for your wedding and reception. I guess you're glad you didn't get those floating oil candles. :) How was the decor at El Patio? The one at Dreams Riviera Cancun is gorgeous...the lighting is perfect.

Can't wait to see pics and read your review. Some people gave Northerflasher tips on how to do a planning thread/review here: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/fo...-thread-58623/

The wedding review section is a sub-forum of the fourth forum (Share your wedding/engagement story). You need to put pics in photobucket and add the links where you want pics in your review. To start your review you just click the "new thread" link. I'm pretty sure that's how to do one. Hope this helps.

xo,

I'm not sure if I asked this before, but does anyone have a jpeg or similar version of the resort map on the dreams tulum site (Dreams Tulum Resorts & Spas: Resort Map) that they could send me? I want to use this image in my welcome book and am trying to avoid asking the dreams wedding team for it.

 

Thank you!!!

That's wonderful news, I'm so glad you were happy with how everything turned out. Every bride deserves at least one rant under those circumstances.
I found it easier to get my images uploaded and resized in photo bucket first and then write a draft version of my review in my blog, you can also insert your photos here and then just copy the whole thing over once its finished. The only thing to be aware of if you do it this way is that each draft blog will only accept 4 photos so you have to do several drafts depending on the length of you review. There is probably a much easier way but this is how I muddled through it!!
Can't wait to read it and see pictures

Hi! Thanks for the directions, I'll be sure to do this ASAP. Yes, I'm glad I didn't get the floating candles... the relax pool is huge, I would have had to buy a lot of them. I did however, buy LED lite cubes- they looked awesome on the tables, like sparkling stars on the tables... plus everyone loved them when they were a bit tipsy!
El Patio was great. My thoughts- the best two places at Dreams Tulum to have a reception would be the seaside grill and el patio. I love that they're covered but still open to let the fresh ocean air in. The pools were very windy when I was there- but then again, it was also monsoon week =)

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
