Yikes!!! It kind of bugs me that we're at an all inclusive but yet you have to pay a TON to have everyone eat together.

I agree, but most resorts are the same, but this is for a PRIVATE dinner, like poolside etc.... you can arrange (for a smaller fee), to have a dinner for your group during regular service hours too in the restaurants....

Hi ladies!

 

My fiance and I are have our big day September 3rd, 2013 at the Dreams Tulum! I can't wait! We are just starting to get some idea's for details together and are astounded by the extra costs! We have the Ultimate Wedding package... and 38 guests expected. And extra $3000 just for the food/services fee/taxes for those 18 extra people! 

 

I know that I have access to a wedding coordinator on site, but looking at some information that maybe previous brides or other brides have come across. 

 

Does the Ultimate Package, or any of the packages, include a dance floor or do you just have to pay extra for it no matter what? 

 

Also, we were thinking instead of paying an extra $8.50 per person for cake with the taxes, if we just went and got 2 dozen cupcakes off resort and brought them in ourselves? Anyone know of any cupcake places or bakery's in the area? 

 

It's really too bad about the Sky Lanterns, cause even one for the bride/groom to let go would be awesome!!!

 

Did anyone have troubles with the packages choosing dinner menu? If someone is gluten free/vegan do they have those options or if they don't want Surf and Turf how much trouble is it to order chicken?

 

Table set up for the Reception - are they all for you going to the location and setting up the tables if you bring your own runners, decor that kind of stuff?

 

I hope everyone is having fun planning their weddings... I know I am!!!

Hi Murr1026, Yay!! So exciting to talk to others going thought the same process. Though I don't know the answer to all of your questions, I do have one suggestion. I'm a cake decorator, so I can tell you with some credibility that it is NOT important to have cake for every single person, because they won't eat it! Often we tell people to have enough cake for 1/2 to 2/3 of your guests. Just a heads up before you pay all kinds of money on some cupcakes. I'm also hoping to find out if they can accommodate vegan (I'm sure they can, it would be odd if they couldn't) but for your vegan friends.. I found on tripadvisor some reviews for a really amazing sounding vegan restaurant in Tulum to check out in their travels, Restaurare. I'm hoping to go there with my vegan sister :)

I'm October 19th! Yes, I agree the price per extra person is outrageous, but I've added up all the things I want individually and it just doesn't seem worth it to pay that way. Were up to 27 guests and we also choose the Ultimate Package. I don't think any of the places come with a dance floor however depending on where you have your reception (inside for example) you should be fine dancing without one. If you had a beach reception you would need one because that can be tough on ankles. We decided on an outside guitarist for the ceremony music- I have to admit I am a little nervous because it seems to be a verbal agreement.

 

Thanks for the cake pointer! We bought white boxes (only 24) with labels from vistaprint so that guests could take their cake up to the room if they want to since we already are serving dessert. I was wondering if I needed to buy more but I will just stick with the 24 as not everyone is going to take a box most likely.

 

We decided to keep it fairly relaxed in terms of events before the wedding (this is their vacation too) so were setting up a cocktail meet-up the night before and will be handing out a little welcome favor in lieu of a oot bag. Otherwise were posting some events (on our website) that were doing and said if people are interested in making it a group outing to let us know. I am planning on inviting all the ladies to the spa (if they would like) as well the day of the wedding but the groom will most likely not have official plans- he is pretty laid back so will most likely just plan something day before/day of to do together.

I was thinking I would see if the musicians can come during the dinner to be our entertainment of sorts, we are a smaller group (16 at the moment) so I'm not sure it makes sense to have a whole dance of our own. I asked Landy if there is any sort of disco because I've read here that they closed the disco, she says by then they will have a lounge with live musicians... So we will probably just head over there for anyone who wants to party longer. I'm hoping to hook up my iPod for music during the ceremony. Does anyone who has gotten married already halogen to know the size if the tables they use? I was thinking of sewing my own table runners.

The musicians are VERY expenive (+$500) range. I am bringing in a vendor for 275 but then the resort is also charging me a $120 fee.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
