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

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the breakdown, helps put everything into perspective. 

Clinicalgal, thanks for the detailed review.  How horrible about the fall! :(  You looked beautiful on your day!!

 

So i'm a little bummed.  Our early booking bonus deadline was this Saturday and we didn't get the 10 ppl booked.   Two of my guests are flying out of a different city and don't count.  My bad, i didn't research enough before i went ahead and signed up with our TA.  We got engaged on June 14, and the deadline was August 28.  That seems so little of time to have 10 ppl pay in full, and of course that's what all my invitees think. 

 

FI's dad isnt' coming to the wedding.  He just won't come.  His mom and sis are going to rent a condo in Tulum as they think Dreams is too expensive.  Another Aunty of mine is staying in Playa as they can get a cheaper hotel.  I knew this would happen, but what a PITA.  A few of our friends that were the most excited and we thought would FORSURE be there, haven't booked and arent' talking about it!  But, we are still happy with everything and can't wait till Februrary.

Looks like we'll have a cheaper wedding than i thought!!!  And spend some of the money that we thought we'd have to on the guests that will be there.  (Fishing trip/catamaran)

Thanks!

 

i hired del sol photography to do my photography and it cost about $$2,800. did think that was too bad considering pictures are all we will have at the end of the day! :)

Lite - I know its easier said than done, but try not to be too bummed about people not booking early for your wedding.  We had a lot of comments about the price of DT as well... to which we told people we would welcome them finding a better deal and we would follow up on it.  Once they started looking around, they really did realize the value and we didnt hear many complaints after that.

 

Your wedding is still 6 months away, and a lot of people probably think they can still find deals in that time.  I'm sure they will find something, even if it wasn't as good as the early booking.  The ones that really want to be there will find a way :)

Hi there. I was wondering if any of you have been to dreams lately. My wedding is on the 25th and I am stressing over candles. Yep, candles. I really would prefer having real candles...the light they put off is so much more flattering. If it's windy, then the flameless ones would be best...but the amber ones don't giver off a lot of light (yet are prettier than bright white).

 

Thanks!!

Oh My, I am so sorry.  Can I tell you- the same exact thing happened to us, really.  My brother (who I paid for even) didn't come, my "BEST FRIEND" who was to be in my bridal party told me the week before we left that she decided not to come (yes RSVP'd and was "definitely coming, wouldn't miss it for the world")  Not to mention all of the other people's problems and their rude comments.  So I guess these things aren't uncommon.... I've learned from my whole wedding experience, that most people are CHEAP, with the mindset "I have enough $ for me (to go away on vacation for myself, buy handbags, designer clothes etc) but not enough money for you- to treat you how you should be treated for your wedding."

The week of your wedding, the day of your wedding- will be spectacular.  And I wish, that someone post something like this when I was having these issues, I thought I was the only one who went through this- I was so sad that I thought people didn't care about me or my wedding, and so stressed out that I don't think I enjoyed it as much as I should have.

 

Please don't worry.  Please know that you are going to have a wonderful wedding, and this is such a beautiful time in your life, so enjoy it before it's over.

Omg, i am having that same issue, everyone is making me feel guilty about the wedding, and i've told me guest MANY times, please don't feel bad, if you can't afford it, then don't go, i really don't care who makes it just as long as i am there with my future husband...but yet they insist and then in turn are passive aggresive about the cost of everything... i just want to screm THEN DON'T GO!!!!! Geeeeez!!! i'm so glad i am not the only one...

 

i'm so frustrated, and most of all i'm sick of people being rude about it when this is suppose to be a happy time in my life...

 

ok had to get that off my chest!!!

 

 

thanks!

I think one of the things about having a DW that we have to accept is that some people are going to be jerks about it... complaining about cost, location, weather, whatever... they'll find something to complain about.  We just need to remember that its our wedding and we are doing this for US. 

 

I just want to say though... I know a lot of people say things like "the people that care will be there", and I dont think having that mentality is a good one.  To some extent, I agree... but I know there are sometimes people that do care, and for whatever reason can't be there.  You dont want to feel bitter towards these people if life got in the way.  Having a DW is something all of us chose to do, and it isn't really fair of us to expect everyone else to be able commit the time and money it takes to come to our weddings.  I would hate to destroy a friendship over someone not coming to my wedding -- unless of course they decided to make my life hell over the fact that I'm even doing a DW lol.

 

Just my two cents :)

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
