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

Recommended Posts

Do you mind me asking what the measurements were? I'm going to reconfirm with the resort, but there's no way I'm paying $450 if I can pick up the material for $50. Did you use regular tulle or organza?

I'm not sure about that $450 quote. I didn't bring down any white tulle, I'm pretty sure it comes standard with the wedding package (at least the ones you pay for). I only paid $60 for them to wrap the tulle differently than usual, but that's all. I did bring down my own blue chair bows and I think that was $260 (including all other decorations for the reception as well) since I had so many guests.

There was a huge difference between the two!

 

 

 

 

 

  La Luna just ended up shooting TONS of weddings, way too much work for the team to handle actually, the demand was so high that we raised the price some... Thank you SO Much for citing that there was a HUGE DIFFERENCE between La Luna and what the resort studio was doing.  Most of that comes in many different layers, from Melissa's customer service all the way to the editors and the time put into post production making these snaps blazingly amazing.

Hola, newbie here!  I come to you with a question still unanswered after hours of googling with no luck.  Perhaps someone here can help.

 

Are same-sex ceremonies unheard of at DT?  I've searched and not found evidence of one, but I've also not found evidence that they would likely turn away such a request, so I just don't know.  (I've asked.  Waiting on an official answer, but hungry for unofficial ones in the meantime.)

 

Google results steer me in the direction of a seemingly wild resort for gay men, who may or may not wish to wear clothing, but that is not exactly what I had in mind.  Ok, that is actually a whole planet away from what I had in mind!

 

DT looks near perfect, but I'm hesitant to get my hopes up too high.  For any of you who've gotten married there, or even just visited, have you ever seen a same-sex wedding going on? 

 

Thanks for any info.

I honestly don't know the answer about DT and if they do same sex ceremonies... IF they do, I can promise that its not a all men cloths optional kind of thing, for sure not.....


I do know this hotel, 15 minutes away from DT does: http://www.adonistulum.com/ '>http://www.adonistulum.com/  Formerly Blue Tulum.  I know they did some redesign over the last 6 months for the rebranding and change over to same sex ONLY.   http://www.adonistulum.com/

Thank you.  It probably sounds strange, but a place that caters solely to same-sex couples is just... not our kind of place.  Our family members and friends would feel out of place there, and, to be honest, so would we.  We're not really into the culture, I guess you could say.

 

I've looked through a lot of photos from DT weddings and pretty much fallen in love.  I would hate to think anywhere would flat out say no, but again, trying not to get too attached till I'm certain it's no big deal.  (Very difficult!  It's exciting, looking through the posts & photos here!)

Well, to update & provide info for future wondering brides...

 

Same-sex ceremonies at Dreams Tulum are "not currently offered," and I'm told I should check out a resort in Cancun instead (which I'm not interested in).

 

I'm more than a little hurt and bummed out (I really thought I was being overly cautious in asking and would receive a warm welcome, then feel silly for even thinking it would matter), but I guess I just need to look elsewhere and not dwell on it.

 

I'd love to find somewhere similar that is more open, but not an exclusively/predominantly gay resort, considering we'll have maybe 1 guest who is gay & 20 who are not.

 

Wish me luck.

Cherany- I'm new too and your post broke my heart.  What about www.rainbowceremonies.com as a ceremony option with your guest and activities staying at DT?  No one says you HAVE to get married at DT and I assume the ceremony can be in close proxmity to the resort considering.  Just an idea.... good luck!

    • 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?
