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

Recommended Posts

Laura what is your wedding date? I know that during winter months most people go to their rooms by 6pm. I have been to Mexico few times during winter and we would always go to our room by 5pm because the sun goes done and it gets chilly in the water.

Its rocky but not so rocky that you can't swim.............the sand is wonderful and you will still love it.......and so will your guests!

Dreams is a great place to get married.  I have been to a few weddings there and they are always beautiful!  Two of my girlfriends got married there and they hired Scott Brown for pics   http://www.scottbrownweddings.com/Home.html   and Bijan Zade for music http://www.mayanvibes.com/.  Both brides were extremely happy and now one is coming back for her cousins wedding..........they are contagious aren't they!!!   I would recommend both guys for their services and Dreams is a beautiful classy resort - you will not be disappointed!!  Breath and Enjoy!

Hello Everyone!!

Steve and I are getting married January 17th at Dreams Tulum. We are getting very excited but I am getting a bit stressed out about a few things. First, Dinner reception starts at 630pm. There is no negotiating this, I have tried!!! But how long does it take to serve a 4 course menu? I would think 2 hours, half hour per course... That said, I dont feel like there is enough time for dancing and partying!!!! That really is my biggest concern!!!! Any thoughts on this issue??? Secondly, did any brides get some quotes on centerpieces and what did they look like? They sent me the wedding guide with quotes from $65-$130 per centerpiece!!! And I did not get any pics! Do they have cheaper options? Can you send a pic and have them replicate it???

Hi Trista,

I wrote a reply to you and someone lost it! So I understand your frustration in regards to the flowers. I did receive the attachments from Natalia with the photos so I have attached them for you. You are getting married two weeks after us so I can let you know how things work down there. From what I have read, it shouldn't be that big of a deal to extend your reception an hour or so...tipping your waiters I have read helps. I know a lot of past brides has said that the disco is pretty good...depending what night of the week it is. I am sure you will be tired by midnight...funny how the heat does that to you!

 

Decor- I will post a photo for you tomorrow of what I am doing for centerpieces. I spray painted tall round aluminum containers red. We will put sand in them and use them to hold the bridesmaid bouquets and my bouquet. This will be part of our decor. I am also going to email Natalia this week about renting square or rectangular vases. I am making fabric pomanders that I plan on putting in the vases on top of sand and painted shells. I am also going to price out green orchids like in the bm bouquets and possibly put them in the square vases with turquoise gel/beads(our other color). We are getting two free centerpieces with our ultimate wedding package.

 

I wouldn't mind your thoughts on my ideas for decor for the canopy. Are you getting married on the beach?

I don't want to bring tons of fabric but if they think they are going to charge me 400%$ or so for just the fabric, forget it!

I attached a photo of what I am thinking, white fabric that is hung to look like curtains, a bit of turquoise tulle/organza and red flower garland(I am making)

 

Happy planning!

Ann-Marit

The quote I had for a very basic white material to simply hand down (I believe like setup #12 in the book) was around $300 (includes material and setup) or $150 if I brought the material myself. I'm still trying to decide which way to go. I checked a fabric store and to get enough organza material it was going to run me about $120....

Hi Sheena,

What book are you talking about? Is this part of the package they send you two months before your wedding? We get married Jan 4 and this is one of the last resort things i am worrying about. I have been pricing out tulle...I like organza but have you priced out online too? i may order mine online as it is hard to find organza or tulle in the turquoise that I need.

 

If you can let me know which book you are refering to, I will request it from my wedding coordinator. Thanks!

Sorry, it wasn't a book - it's in one of the attachments you just put up, under the arch decorations - the email they send out about two months ahead of time. I said I just wanted the material, nothing else for that setup, and the quote was $300. I've got to say, my desire to keep costs down is waning with just over a month to go. Even though it's highway robbery, I feel like I'll cave to avoid having to worry about it.

 

Also, if anyone is getting married near my date (nov 24), there's 26 white paper lanterns I would love to not have to bring home with me. Pm me if anyone's interested.

Trista, I got married in March at Dreams Tulum and we also had our reception start at 6:30, dinner went along quite quickly and we had a few speeches then we danced, I think we went until about 11, it worked out well, I wouldn't worry about it, after that a few people went to the disco for a while, the disco is nothing special though. As for the centerpieces I sent them pictures I found online or in magazines that I liked and they recreated them, they didn't look like the ones I sent at all though, they were pretty and at that point I was ok with it, bottom line is that anything custom will cost an arm and a leg, I also sent a picture of teh bouquet I wanted, they created it exactly but it cost $400! Don't worry about anything it all works out great in the end! I attached my wedding photos link, I had a photographer come from Toronto, the best thing about an outside photographer is that, well, for one they are a million times better then the resort one, and two they can take you on a trash the dress shoot the following day and there are some beautiful areas outside the resort that are gorgeous for shooting! Have fun, I wish i was going back!!

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
