Yeah, imagine if you had 11 people and so you had to pay 11*20$ just because you were one person over the limit!!!

But remember if you want to upgrade to silver or gold menu you'd have to pay 55$ or 65$ for all 14 people, as those menus are not included for the first 10 people with the free package.

Wondering and also beginning to fume...has anyone heard from ANYONE in the wedding department. I kid you not, I've sent 4 emails all asking one simple question. What's the name of the minister who will be performing my ceremony?!?!?! ugh! If they do have 3 ladies in the wedding department than there is really no excuse for not getting back to us. I leave in 7 days. Tired of the waiting around!!!!

Thanks for the contact info Sunbride! Can't wait- we haven't heard anything either. We don't leave for a couple of weeks yet, but it is still getting annoying!

Ladies, do any of you have guests coming from other resorts? I'm aware of the day pass fees but I'm wondering logistically how they would get from one resort to the other?? I'm assuming a cab or something similar....also is there a timeline that these guests would need to be off Dreams property?

Any additional info would be awesome!

EEP! Just realize from my siggy that we get married in 4 months :)

Ladies, I FINALLY got an email! whew!

For anyone wondering...the name of the minister who performs their services is Francisco Flores. Remember, it's non-denominational AND the minister could change depending on availability.

Here's an outline of what he'll say:

 

Opening prayer

Welcome

1st. Reading (Mark 10:6-9) Institution of marriage

Reflexion on the scripture

2nd. Reading (1st. Corinthians 13:4-8a) Love

Meditation on the reading

Prayer for the rings (your hearts)

Vows: Bride, Groom´s name: I give you this ring

Wear it with love and joy

I choose you to be my (wife, husband)

From this day forward

For better or for worst

For richer or for poorer

In sickness and in health

To love and to cherish

For as long as we both shall live

Amen

Presentation to the congregation as Mr. and Mrs.

Signing of the certificate.

 

 

You may write your own vows.

 

You can add: Sand ceremony, poems, songs, other readings…etc. I will guide the timing for them, or as you prefer.

 

It lasts approximately 20 to 25 minutes.

 

 

ALSO, and this is a big also (at least for me), they will no longer be allowed to have bonfires on the beach. Landy says its part of the agreement the resort recently made with the gov't. Now, I need to think of something else for AFTER our big shindig!

I wrote ours, but instead of getting stressed out each writing our own secretly, I came up with some standard ones and we both said the same thing. I looked online for inspiration and came up with a few lines that I thought were relevant and true to us. We practiced them a lot as we didn't want to do the "repeat after me" thing with the minister. Because we practiced them a lot we didn't get very emotional saying them. I'm very happy we did it, the words were special. I really liked our vows.

That stinks about the bonfire!!!!! sad.gif but at least the resort is open again- ha!

Thanks for the info, karla! I'm glad to hear you've heard back from them! Was it Landy that responded or someone else? I have quite a few questions out to Landy (and then I copied them to Anabel when she sent me the 1 month prior documents). No word yet... I'm sure they're backed up with the reopening but... I keep telling myself to chill. Its working... for now:)

Ummm, Can't Wait... your ticker says 10 days!! HOLY CANOLLI!!!! that is awesome!! Yay yay yay!

Can't Wait: Is there a Costco near Tulum?

 

Amy, if you really care about the champagne I would suggest packing a suitcase of it - just make sure it doesn't weigh over 50 lbs and wrap each bottle in bubble wrap (keeps the weight down yet protects). My FI and I are very picky wine drinkers so everytime we have gone to Mexico in the past we have brought about 10 - 12 bottles in one bag in bubble wrap and we have never had a problem with it. We bought several bottles of wine in Mexico before and ended up dumping every last one out -- they were TERRIBLE - and expensive - I don't think they store their wine properly in the heat, etc.

I know that I have talked about photographers several times on here. I am just having a really difficult time making a decision about who to use and still not spending a fortune.

I was wondering if anyone is getting a photo album created with one of the photographers that they are using. I was looking at Claudia Rodriquez but I did not see an option for a photo album...maybe I overlooked it.

As far as Del Sol, they look like absolutely wonderful pictures and cost quite a bit more, which I completely understand. But then they list the photo album starting at 1,500. It just seems like it really adds up to alot.

 

So basically does anyone know any more information about the photographers or know of one that has reasonable costs for the wedding day services and also a photo album.

Hope this sounds somewhat clear... it's been a long day!!

    • 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
    • Two of my friends are going to get married next month. Out of them one is suffering from serious teeth issue. He is having bleeding gums along with jaw pain and swelling, particularly around the gums or around the jaw. Because of the teeth issue, he is not able to make the arrangements for the marriage. Is it safe to carry out tooth extraction during this period of time? How painful is dental implants during and after the procedure? Will he be able to eat food after tooth extraction? Please share your views and suggestions. Thank you!
