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

Recommended Posts

Okay so here is the question that came to me at 2am this morning:

 

Has anyone else gotten married before you left for you wedding? My FI and I keep throwing the idea around since our witnesses are not able to arrive until the day befor we get married.

 

Thoughts?

Do you mean legally getting married before your mexico wedding? A lot of people do that. We are doing that as well

We are getting legally married the week before we leave but we aren't telling anyone and just going to consider our Mexican wedding as our real wedding day. It just seems easier to me to do it that way.

of course! People do it all the time!! If you do a search tons of girls have done it-they call it their "legal day"...we are doing it because my family can't travel and I still want them to see me get married. We are doing it very low key

Yes, we are doing that as well. I did not want to fuss with the blood tests and people being there x-amount of days before the ceremony.

 

We will still consider the Mexico Ceremony as our official wedding day.

 

By the way...this is the email I got two weeks ago:

 

Dear Bride & Groom

 

As the great day is approaching I may need to ask you to fill out this planning form in order to start and set up details for your wedding.

 

Find attached the pictures options of the flowers and wedding cake options too.

 

Thanks a lot in advance for sending this planning form filled out before September 8th 2008.

WOW! THanks so much for sharing that! That makes me feel way better about waiting until the last month to hammer out the details. At least they have procedures in place for when the date nears, even though it feels like you aren't even sure if they are expecting you!

Has anyone waited until they get back from the honeymoon to actually do their "legal day?" I sort of want to wait until after the religious ceremony to do mine. Also, has anyone actually planned their Dreams Tulum wedding without the help of a Travel Agent? The one I am currently in contact with is...dare I say...slower than the onsite WC at Dreams!! I'm getting responses faster than her! =P

My fiance and I are waiting until we get back for two reasons. 1 I just really want it to feel like the real thing when I walk down the aisle/beach and 2 we are getting married in Dec. Its so close to the end of the year that it just makes sense to wait until January to do the legal stuff b/c my fiance makes a lot more money than i do and i might as well wait one more year to be taxed at his tax bracket. Nice reason, right? Ha!! Anyway, we're doing it a few weeks after we get back. I figure if we did it 'legal' in Mexico it would take several months to be legal in the US so its still quicker!!!

Well to answer two questions with one post... It does seem easier to get married before you get to Mexico - but I just as well want the actual walk down the isle to be THE ACTUAL walk down the isle of becoming a Mrs...I hope to not regret that choice with all the details that wil need to be done in the 4 days before shots.gif

 

Secondly- I planned and reserved the trips for almost all the 29 guests that I have coming through Cheaptickets.com

 

I got the best prices - better then my mom who is a travel agent was able to get and it was very easy to do even for people that are coming from other countries such as Ireland and Africa - so I would strongly suggest checking them out for all your travel arrangement needs.

 

For transportation from the airport I was able to find a great deal on a van - $180 both ways for as many as 8 people so that's awasome and I would be glad to share that with anyone that needs that link.

 

My FI and I are renting a Jeep Wrangler there so I was also able to find a great deal on that - $150 for 10 days there and I would be glad to share that link with anyone interested also.

 

It's only 28 days to the wedding and 23 days till we leave so I am quite excited that I think almost all the arrangements are on their final leg smile72.gif

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
