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

Recommended Posts

Regarding the flowers...I also had the same issue. I found out it's because I was asking for a SPECIFIC flower that might not be local or in season for them. I then asked them (Aurora) if they had VERY SIMILAR looking flowers to the ones I chose as long as they were free (i.e., included in the package).  She always had a very, very close option to the original flower I chose. Everytime! So I recommend asking her for flowers that are similar to the ones you are aiming for.  You can't ask for "daises" or "dahlias", because they probably don't grow down there and you're mostly paying for shipping costs.  Instead ask for a flower that looks like a daisy or dahlia. They definitely will have something to make you happy.  All of our flowers were beautiful!  Hopefully I'll get my pro pics soon so I can post the review before some of your weddings. :)

You seriously have been a godsend to me right now. I'm trying my best to not start going bridezilla about stuff, but I am finding the communication thing between the coordinator and myself a little frustrating. Thank you, I will take your advice and ask for something similar to what I wanted, which was gerbera daisy's.....although it's funny that they are listed on the website as being one of the flowers available. Anyways, I will see if that helps. She has yet to respond to me as to why there would be an additional cost. I really thought choosing just one type of flower would make things much more simple and easy.....and in all honesty I don't really care, as long as they are pretty.....and look much better than the selection in the guide! lol

Thanks again!!

well trying the "similar to" approach doesn't seem to be working for me either. What I do find funny is that I sent a pic of a bridesmaid bouquet (so much smaller than a bride's bouquet) from a florist in cancun that quoted me $45 for the bouquet. According to Aurora a bouquet similar to it would be $240 + tax. 

 

Not impressed!

What is everyone getting their bridesmaids to wear for shoes for the wedding?  I was going to put them in heels till I considered the sand factor, haha.  Just curious what others did and are doing.  Are heels a possiblility??

    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.
