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

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

 

I was wondering if anyone can send me the package Dreams Tulum usually sends out two months prior to the wedding? (natgurova@gmail.com) - With all the decoration choices, flowers, etc...I would like to see my options earlier in the game =)

My wedding is still far away, January 7th 2015, but I already picked up some decorative shells at Christmas Tree Shops, they are so pretty! I am planning on having a runner on the reception table with some shells scattered and lighting underneath. For the centerpiece - i really like this idea:

The resort quoted me $100 + 16% tax for the vase, 3 lilies and marbles, and $21+16% for the petals. Uhm...- a bag of petals costs $.89 on ebay with free shipping. Marbles can be found at any dollar store. And for the lilies with a vase, they quoted $80+16% tax. I still think it is pretty steep...What are you ladies doing for your centerpieces?

Wow! That is pricey! Is that just for ONE centerpiece? So you'd have to pay like $140 per table? Holy crap. I'm getting married January 4th, 2015 (we got a better rate and can purchase plane tickets separately when we want). My colors are purple (orchid and plum) and lime green with hints of yellow. I was going to use the resort for centerpieces but now I'm starting to think twice. I may make them ahead of time or bring the supplies down with me. It's just difficult with glass... I would like to maybe do something with white starfish and orchids.

Yap, it is only for ONE centerpiece! I think i will have four round tables, so that means that i have to multiply the price by four! I decided to not have the petals (simply because they might fly away, and the price - i can get them off ebay much cheaper!), and go with the shells. I got a nice "mixed bag" with large shells of different variety from Christmas Tree Shops, and i got starfish there as well (6 starfish of about 4 inch = $2). I figured, i will bring the marbles for the vase, bring my seashells and scatter them, and just deal with getting the vase + 3 calla lilies (which will cost me ($80 + 16% tax)x4 = $371...arghhh). Still thinking - buying the flameless candles and bringing them as "centerpieces" will be a cheaper option, but i do not think it will be enough.

And slowly but surely things will fly out of the budget...=(

Are the tables round or rectangular or do you have a choice?

If you are doing one big table it is a long rectangular table, otherwise they are round tables. The round tables are large and sit up to 10 ppl.

The centerpieces are crazy expensive! I am getting married there in April and have decided to bring my own centerpieces. The ones in the option book are sooo tiny and still cost $70/each. It was WAY cheaper to bring my own and pay for the set up fee as I am having to anyways since I am bringing other things. Also i know you can't do fake petals on the tables. It is against their policies. They would have to be real petals, so you would be forced to buy those through them :(

Hi , I've just picked my wedding dress and it's nothing like I was wanting / imagining for my dream beach wedding in November- it is a traditional wedding dress with train!!! Do I loose my deposit and cancel ?? Have on terrace instead of beach ?? I'm so confused and don't know what to do - any help advice reassurance would be appreciated !! Thanks

Wear whatever is going to make you happy!!! If this is your dream dress who cares that it is traditional and you are getting married on the beach. It is your day! :) Im doing a beach ceremony and my dress mermaid style, lace and a train! I picked the dress I wanted regardless of where the ceremony is being held :)

THANKS! One more question... if the actual centerpiece I use (my bridesmaids bouquets most likely!) is artificial but they aren't "loose" petals is that ok? They aren't going to blow away. I could buy real preserved orchids from saveoncrafts.com too to lay on the table, that might be ok? Thanks again!

Yep it is just the loose petals you cannot have.

I just designed this for my Welcome Bags! I'm going to order it a white polypropylene bag from discountmugs.com. About $190 for 50 bags (in white). I can do the same design for you if you like, for $10 and just change the date and colors.

If you are having a symbolic ceremony do you still get a 'document' for us and witnesses to sign?

I do not think so. My fiance's frat brother got his "Justice of Peace" license, so he will be marrying us. The wedding coordinator said that it is ok, and we do not need to be in the country 3 days before, or anything like that. Although if you are using a minister there to get you married - not sure what the protocol is. Send them an email! so far, they have been responding to my emails within 1 business day.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
