I told her I needed the information so I could include it in the itinerary I am printing for the guests. I had to go ahead and print it so I hope it's correct!
Another thing I'll give you the heads up on is that our contract was totally wrong - so be sure to look at it closely! We were being charged for things that we didn't have (like bridesmaids bouquets) and then not being charged for other things (too few guest dinners).
Feel free to PM me if you have any questions! And don't worry - even despite the things that went wrong, we had a beautiful wedding and I'm sure that you will too!

I love how the chinese lanterns look strung up like that, how did u do that and how many lanterns did you use? And whats that big glowing blue column?
PS can't wait for more pics and of course the review!
The columns are theirs (DT) and you pay $50 per column. I got the idea from Rebecca and George's dinner/reception ... they had 4 of them in a big square around all their tables (on the beach beside the SSG) and the lanterns were strung all the way around (it was gorgeous). My niece and I ran into Rebecca and George after their reception and I offered to purchase the lanterns ... they said I could have them. (Thanks again!) and when I told Landy I wanted that set up ... she suggested the 2 columns instead of 4 ... and she suggest 10 lanterns. I was so happy with how it looked. I know Landy could've charged me the $200 and put up 4 columns ... so I really appreciate how she saved me money and made it look beautiful. *SmiLes* Suzanne

I'm also really surprised to hear that your coordinator (Starlit) was not more careful about the details and got stuff mixed up. And the thing about the ceremony text that is absolutely awful. A warning to other brides to make sure to double check everything (i.e. if you've written your own text, have the groom speak to the minister before he starts)
Overall, very disappointing for future dreams tulum brides, but please try to keep this in perspective. We have not had such a negative review since Can't Wait which was I think in December.
Happy to hear that you still both had wonderful wedding days even if everything did not go perfectly.

So tonight my fiancee and I were talking about wedding expenses and how much we'll owe when we get to the resort. We requested the Ultimate Package which seems like a pretty good value but we are concerned about the cost of the add ons. I was thinking that we would do the Gold Dinner but we have 38 guests so at $65 a head (18 over the 20 that are included) that's gonna get kinda pricey. If we opt for the "regular menu" for $20 what does that mean? What do they serve? Do you think it's worth it to go with the Gold Dinner?

If you go with the regular menu, I'm not sure how many courses you get. You may not get as many as with the special menus.
Some of the recent brides on here have used the regular menu, if nobody responds you might want to try reading some of the recent reviews and sending PMs to those ladies for more details.
If it was me, personally, I would probably go for the regular menu to save 500$ But everyone has their own priorities.

You know, I always wonder if vendors/business are aware of forums like this that review their services, and if they read them for feedback. If so, Dreams Tulum, I suggest you pay attention to the reviews of these two brides and get it together!
