    How to post a review:

    Some people post their reviews in this thread, which is okay but they can be hard to find later (even if I provide the link, sometimes it just links to the first page of this thread). It's better if you start a new thread (also, then other from not from DT can see it too).

    Start a new thread in this sub-forum

    Wedding Reviews - Best Destination Wedding Forum

    You can call it " (insert your user name here) Dreams Tulum review - (insert wedding date here)" or something like that.

    How to post pictures:

    To post pictures, you need to get a account with Photobucket. You upload your pictures to your photobucket account, then under each picture there will be a link (there are actually 3 links, you want the last one) and copy and paste the link into your thread. The images will show up in the thread, even though the photos are actually located on photobucket. If you have serious problems doing this you can always email me your pictures (send me a PM and I will send you my email address) and I will do it for you. Another option is to use any other photo website (picasa web album, snapfish, etc) and provide the link for the whole album. If you do that, the photos won't show up directly in the thread, it will be a link that
    brings people to another page to go see your photos.

    BRIDE LIST (DETAILED)

    This list will help other brides in determining who is having some of the same elements as them and they can contact you for questions or read your review for more info on particular aspects.

    If you post your info in the thread, Sunbride will add it to the list (but please be patient, it is only updated more or less once a month as it takes a lot of time and a moderator needs to get involved to do it)
