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

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies-

I have a couple of questions. Our wedding is July 12, and we are expecting about 18-25. We are doing the Ultimate Package. I am torn between reception on the beach or by the small pool. If it is windy I don't want sand in peoples food, but on the other hand it might feel good in the middle of July. I love the idea of dinner on the beach, but just don't know if it would be a disaster or not. Also, I think we will just use an iPod for music (I don't foresee much dancing with this crowd...) but will a docking station be loud enough on the beach or will waves drown it out? Should we rent their sound system? It's a lot of money... I think we are using an outside guitarist/vocalist for the ceremony and cocktail hour, I thought I would have the Mexican trio at the end of dinner as a surprise. Any thoughts? I'm kind of rambling, I know. 

Thanks!!

Hi Ladies!

 

I'm new to this thread.. considering this resort for my fall 2014 wedding. Anyone have any suggestions for a catamaran for groups with a price range? thanks!

So, by looking online at wedding cake pictures.. I'm thinking of getting a cake elsewhere.

 

I used to day this wasn't important to me, but now I'm thinking... I'm a cake decorator, I can't have an ugly wedding cake... that's tragic!

 

I also used to say I don't understand how bridezillas can happen... but my goodness, it's easy!  I had a horrible experience with my dress, there's been the odd mixup with the TA but she turned out to be really great in the end, family drama drama drama... yiiiikes.

 

But back to the topic of cakes, anyone have an opinion on this?  I'm just thinking something small... but maybe the resort cakes aren't so bad, the booklet looks OK, I wonder how much the real life cake looks like the picture though.

To be honest cake isn't at the top of my list, but I think simple is better...I think the cakes don't look as nicely executed when they do something out of the box.  I think a simple 3 tier cake just decorated with some flowers on top is both simple and elegant. I'm not a fan of the ribbon and what not some people use. I know you're a cake decorator, but you said it yourself that most people don't even eat the cake...and I didn't even see the cake at the last wedding I attended. We bought to-go boxes in white and as well as some pretty personalized labels from vista print and will give our guests the option of taking the cake with them since our package also includes dessert (something to keep in mind). What about if you did a rehearsal dinner cake? That way most people see it, you can get very imaginative with a cake and find one at a local bakers, and you can avoid the vendor fee. I for-one would just spend the money elsewhere.

Awesome thanks! My guitarist never answered my latest email and I don't feel comfortable not having a contract so I may contact her as well. Not really looking for singing though just instrumental. If any bride in the past has a guitar contact I would be most appreciative (the resort musician is ridiculously priced at over $500 for a half hour ceremony.

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • 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.
