I was just wondering if anyone has been getting emails back from Landy lately. She hasn't returned any of mine in almost a month and needless to say I'm getting a little worried. I have to have some details confirmed with her so I can get the information to be printed for menus, programs, ect. Has anyone tried calling them before? Does it help to get answers or no? I have to admit that we are starting to regret our decision of choosing Dreams Tulum. So far we have found the wedding coordinators to be unhelpful. I imagine they must be very busy ladies, but as I am leaving to go on vacation for a couple of weeks before the wedding I only have about a month to finish all the planning. Any suggestions??

 

Also, here is my info, I dont think I gave it when I first joined.

 

Username: Mono Amor

Names (optional, first names only): Leanne

Date & Time: November 13, 2008, 4:00

Wedding package: Ultimate

Wedding extras (and cost charged): Bonfire Afterparty ($40), Firedancers ($250 for 15 mins), Pinata ($40)...so far

Type of ceremony: Religious

Coordinator: Landy

Number of guests: 35 confirmed, more RSVPs to come

Ceremony location: Chapel, but since we have about 40 guests we may have to switch to the front staircase location (not as private)

Reception location: Ballroom

Photographer: Resort

Videographer: Resort

Special arrangements / activities: Deep-sea fishing (guys outing), Playa del Carmen (girls shopping trip), trip to Cancun for bachelor/bachlorette parties.

 

 

Lastly, does anyone have any good pictures of the smaller ballrooms? Im just trying to get an idea of what Im working with.

 

Thanks!!!!!!

Hi,

Landy has been a little hard to get a hold of lately, I agree. Her last email reply took about 9 days. But with the advice from all the gals here, I know that a lot of decisions will be made when I get there and I will just go with the flow.

You should send another email, let her know you are going on vacation and then ask her to set up a phone conference with you. It is usually more helpful to just speak to her in person.

Good Luck!

I would suggest you try emailing Lizette, as many brides have posted lately that Lizette answers much quicker. Also I would try calling. you may have to try over and over again (if you leave a message, I highly doubt they will call you back) until you reach them

We will be arriving on the 10th and staying 7 nights. It sounds like there will be a couple of us there in that time period. Its exciting! I have to admit that finding this forum has been the most comforting thing that could have happened! Thanks for all the advice!

I think you should definitely call. I'm getting married several weeks after you and I have yet to recieve ONE email from Landy. She hasn't responded to ANY OF MY EMAILS. So I get how frustrating you are. BUT, and it's a big but, everyone who has gotten married there before says the WC always come through in the end. That is what I'm banking on.

Definitely call. Good luck!

Hello Ladies,

 

Welcome Mano Amor! I understand how frustrated you are. It's difficult enough planning a wedding, and planning a wedding away can be exhausting. A few months ago I had trouble getting a response from Landy as well. I was really upset because I was trying to confirm my date in order to have my invites made. Anyway, I e-mailed her and in the subject line typed "Please RESPOND." The next day Sandra, the previous WC who now works in sales, and Lizet e-mailed me answers to my questions. If I were you I would see if you could contact Lizet or Sandra via phone and e-mail.

Hey SunBride! I have an opinion question for you =)

 

I reserved the ballroom in the convention center for my reception and i was wondering how big that room is... we have about 30 people booked right now and we're expecting around 50. I definately don't want the room to look too big for our party. Will a party of 50 be lost in there?

 

Excellent job, by the way, on your review. You are absolutely beautiful and so are your pictures. Thank you so much for helping our all us bride-to-be's and answering all these questions; it is so much appreciated!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
