    This is strange....
    We have the Ultimate package, getting married in 17 days. Maybe it's a new requirement for weddings taking place as of a certain date? We were told "no need" when we asked about a deposit, and that we'll settle the account when we check in. I hired Luxe Destination Events and the wedding coordinator there, Lisa, is the one who has been in communication with Aurora, our wedding coordinator at Dreams Tulum. I just left Lisa a voicemail asking why we didn't have to put down a deposit when other couples are being asked to do it. Very weird indeed!

      I looked in the wedding guide of 2009, and it is does state new payment policy and deposit, perhaps when you booked it was not required at that time. I do believe that the $500 will be deducted from the final balance. In any case, you shouldn't have any problems! Your wedding is already all planned! Good luck!

      Don't forget to write a review and post some pics for the rest of us anxious bride-to-be's!!!

      Take care!

        Hi everyone,

        I'm about to book my DJ for the reception, for those who had DJ Mannia, how long did you book him for?

        He sent me the contract and it states for 4 hours of work, is that enough time?

        I know that according to the wedding guide, outdoor receptions must end by 10:30...is that really true? I am asking because my ceremony is at 3pm, so I'm guessing my reception will start around 6pm, the DJ will play from 6-10? What about the rest of the time after that?

              I am in the process of trying to decide exactly what I want my centerpieces to look like and I was wondering if anyone had any problems with the resort not being able to get different types of vases. Do they give you any options or did you have to bring your own?

                Regarding the speaker system for the ceremony is it only for an actual iPod brand or will it work with any brand of MP3 player? Thanks! *SmiLes* Suzanne

                    Hi everyone,

                    I just got an e-mail from Aurora stating that the reception only last 3hrs? Is this the case with all of you? She told me my reception would start at 6:30 and finish at 9:30? Ummm...that is a bit short no? Especially when I have a DJ booked until 10:30

                      Hey there, this is the standard timing apparently, our reception is 7-10PM. We're only 14 people though, so didn't hire a DJ. Not sure how possible it is to have the reception time extended. We're just planning on hoping over to the disco with our guests who are not too exhausted at that point!
