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

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies, I actually had one more question I was curious about. How did the music for your ceremony go? Did you rent the sound system and have the technician? I'm kinda wondering how that will work, do I put the songs on my iPod and tell the tech witch songs get played??

I have a question...Dreams Tulum is one of my options and my travel agent seems to be extremely against bringing in a DJ....has anyone used the in-house DJ and able to give me details on how interactive they were?

I am relieved to hear we werent the only ones who had issues with the minister! Like I said in my review, he started mumbling our vows and we pretty much had to wing it (we hadnt memorized them, woops on our part) and he didnt follow the timeline either. All in all it was an amazing day, and any little hiccups you ladies may experience wont change it :)

 

 

They do charge very high prices to have stuff set up. We did most of the ceremony set up ourselves and it took a whole 10-15 minutes with 4 of us. We had considered setting up for the reception as well but I am so happy we didnt. It is not worth it, we took pictures from the time the ceremony began right up until every guest was waiting for us at the reception. I would have hated knowing we missed out on some fantastic pictures because we had to set up. We had 3 suit cases full of decor for the ceremony/reception and we paid around the same numbers as beabride did....but we had 30 people....so maybe we did get a little ripped off ha ha 

 

For the ceremony, totally memorize your vows (silly of us that we didnt ha ha). If I could re do it, I think I wouldnt have used Minister Kiko at all. I would have had one of our really good friends who wasn't in the wedding party perform the ceremony for us (we had a symbolic ceremony). 

 

 

I am still waiting for our pictures and I cant wait to post them for you all!!

How early did they let you start setting up the ceremony?

We had breakfast around 930 and started setting up right after that. I think we were the only wedding that day, so we may have had the run of the place

Hi Rootkl,

 

There is no in house DJ at DT, they have stereos and a dance floor you can rent. When we priced it out, it was more expensiveto rent their speakers and dance floor with no DJ. We hired DJ Doremixx and they were great!! Worth every penny, my review for them is under vendors-DJ Doremix.

 

We had no issues with bringing the DJ, you do have to pay their entrance fee and I believe we payed for their dinner however I don't think they ever did get it! We paid for one entrance fee because we thought there would be one DJ but he brought 2 other men with him and it wasnt an issue with it. Hope that helps!

We rented one speaker and the mic, I had very detailed instructions on paper for the ipod operator (someone from the hotel) and it went well. Minor hiccup- once I had made my entrance we were standing at the front waiting a good 15-20seconds (which feels like forever when your nervous!) for the guy to turn off the bridal procession song, other than that it was perfect. Kiko didnt follow our timeline at all, and the music guy was able to play all the right songs at the right time.

 

Also TulumBride, for your lighting question I think it will look fine without the lanterns. Our DJ also brought lighting with him, strobe lights, the dance floor was lit up and he brought a spot light with him for the speeches which was great. Have you looked into the lights for underneath the tables? We used them and they were perfect, added a nice romantic feel to them especially at sunset. They werent too expensive either.

Great info. I'll plan on setting up instructions for my iPod tech for the ceremony. I think we are doing the lights under the table, and we also have DJ doremixx ! This is great

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
