As far as a map, I'd just google them.  Here is one I found (it's also for the 'timeshare' people that are at the resort if u want to check them out):  http://www.unlimitedvacationclub.com/Resorts/Dreams/DreamsTulumResortSpa.aspx 

The resort really isn't that big.  I was worried the ballrooms were forever away, but they really aren't.  You can walk just about anywhere in 10 minutes or less.  

 

The Spa arranged the timing of my hair/makeup appt.  I had a 5pm ceremony and they scheduled me at 12noon, which at first seemed really early, but in reality time just disappears during that day.  Due to unforeseen complications (I'll explain in my review) I arrived at 1230pm and my appt lasted until 245pm.  I ran back to the room, got into my dress and then met with my fiance for a pre-wedding photo shoot at 315pm.  We were done by 345pm, I took photos with my BMs, the mothers, and the flower girl.  And we had ordered room service to be delivered at 4pm for a little bit of 'down time'.  Next thing I knew, my dad was at the door and it was time to go!  Give yourself lots of extra time.

 

Great idea- the room service thing! I

Also, what did everyone's timeline look like for getting ready/pictures/salon?? I have my photographer for 5 hours right now, I figured an hour in the room with the girls, so I guess I should make my hair appointment before that right?? My ceremony is at 4pm, and we're doing pictures before. So maybe hair appt. at 12:30, then getting ready in the room from 2-3 with photographer, then our couple pictures from 3-4...what does everyone think?

that sounds like a good timeline - and gives you some wonderful sunset photo ops too.......swt :)

Hello Ladies!  Sorry for the delay, but I've just posted my review on the DT BDW page.  I originally had a bunch of photos with the review, but when I went to post it they were blank.  I'm tired tonight, but I'll work on making them available for you tomorrow =)  Let me know if you have any questions

I don't have any experience with the Gold menu, but the Silver menu was great!  I've just posted my review, but honestly I'm glad we didn't pay extra for the Gold.  I had guests who had the surf & turf from the Seaside Grill and they said the lobster was rubbery, but I know brides on here that have said it was really good so it's hard to say.  I'm sure you can't go wrong either way  :)

I think the surf & turf in the gold wedding package actually includes shrimp unless you pay extra to upgrade to lobster.

Ladies, have a question about flowers- I received my planning packet yesterday (woohoo) and they want me to put down a specific style number - but while I like the style I do not want those colors. I've included photos of the colors I like...do you think that is enough for them to get the idea?

 

Specifically for centerpieces I like the container in one but the flowers in the other, I am so nervous this will become lost in translation!

Sorry I can't figure out how to post my pics with my review, so I'm posting them here.  I don't have my professional photos yet, but will pass them along if I think they'll be helpful!

This is a photo of another wedding while we were there.  Reception was poolside.  Thought it was interesting that the paperlanterns were plenty of light

    • 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. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
