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

Recommended Posts

Hello again. I need help. I am so indecisive on location of our upcoming wedding. We will be getting a dance floor and a DJ. I am thinking about the beach location. There is mixed reviews on here. I am just nervous about bugs. I havent been to Mexico this time of the year - are they bad?

 

Thanks

We are getting married January 4th, 2012 at Dreams Tulum and I have a few questions that I hope some past DT brides can answer. We have tentatively booked the Wine Cellar for our wedding reception, but now I am wondering if we should have it by the pool instead. Did anyone get married last January and have their reception outisde? I know it can cool off in the Mayan at night...is it too cool at this time of year?For those that had their reception at the wine cellar, was it fairly costly to pay for a bottle of wine per couple? There will be 18 of us so I am thinking the cost of the wine would be worth it.Thoughts?

 

For photographers, we have booked one from outside the resort. Did anyone use both the resort photographer included in the wedding package and an outside photographer? I am trying to figure out how we could use both. We are having the Dreams of Love package so we won't be getting many photos from the photographer.

 

In regards to the set up of the wedding on the beach, since we have a wedding package, is the set up fee included? I have read the information in the wedding guide a few times and it still seems unclear to me. We are bringing our own decorations for the chairs and canopy and I am wondering if it is up to us to set this up or if they will do it without charging. I have read mixed reviews about the resort florist. I have heard that if you give her photos of exactly what you want, you will get it. We are making our own silk bouquets for the bridesmaids but I am thinking of getting centerpieces for the reception table. I heard Julieta is good but how pricey is she? I read other reviews saying that she ripped them off?

 

For the reception, we don't want to pay for a dance floor as this only going to be 18 of us. Did anyone go to the Disco at the resort after their dinner for dancing? I know that there are also night shows at the resort.

 

Lots of questions, sorry. I hope many of you can give me some feedback. This is such a great site!!!

 

The cost per bottle of wine ranges from $25-$60 per bottle.  It all depends on what you get really but I think for 15 of us it came around $200 something.  I don't know the exact total because my FIL paid for it. 

 

We used an outside photog who stayed off site, and we also used the resort photog.  The guy from the resort was present for our cocktail hour it worked out great. 

 

Florist: I used Angel from Angel accents and got all real touch flowers since I was picky on my flowers. I strongly recommend not using the resort if you know exactly what you want because they charge so much more than an outside florist.  If it's something relatively simple then the resort wouldn't be a problem but my centerpieces cost me $45 a piece and the resort wanted to charge me $425 for the same thing.  Just an idea of cost differences....also I contacted other florist in the area and they were all charging me between $45-$65 for the same centerpiece. 

 

Dance floor: you don't need a special dance floor for dancing you just need an area to dance.  Dance floors are not necessary at all, we just danced on the cement by the pool where our reception was held.  I never once even considered getting a dance floor while planning.

The beach is great at night, and I don't know when you're going to be there but we were there in May and we never had any problems with bugs.

I heard that the reception lasts 3 hours and after that you have to pay extra, so im just wondering what is determined as "reception" dinner & dance??? or just that dance?? My ceremony is at 3:30 so im guessing cocktail hour at 4-5pm and dinner at 5:30 so does this mean my reception can only go till 8:30?!?!
