    SunBride-

    I was just able to open some of the attachments from page 1 - - The photos of the resorts standard bouquets look a little lack luster. Are the flowers better in person? Should I be bringing my own photos for the resort to try and match?

      Amy you might want to try to email the wedding coordinators some pictures of the bouquet you have in mind.
      This was mine and I was really happy with it

        So some disappointing news....I will no longer be a Tulum bride Everyone and their brother has jumped on possible dates for us in the evening on a Friday, from March thru July! Our TA's salesperson had a death in the family and we were unable to get the date that we were told was still available (May 28th, 2010 evening). We are in the process of checking other Dreams locations. I am still so grateful for EVERYONE'S input & information on this site, as I will still come to it for great ideas and help with any input/ideas I have! Much love to you all!! Wish me luck!

          You have a beautiful bouquet!! I guess I need to start researching pics. Did you have to pay extra for a custom bouquet?

                Now that I've analyzed this a little more there are some grammatical errors and some of it just doesnt make sense.

                  Carmen-
                  In Mexico, I don't think they always get English spelling and grammar 100%. If you end up with a typo on your menu, it will be more authentic!!

                    That's true. I just wanted to make sure it was at least close. :)

                      Hi,
                      Our wedding date of October 29th is quickly approaching! This past weekend I smashed my face on the ocean floor and am a total mess. What every bride dreams of! With some time to heal and a little dental work I should be back to normal by the big day :)

                      I am working on the details today to send to Dreams and am looking for some input. I've looked over lots of past posts re: reception locations, but I'm still wondering what option would be most private. I had assumed we'd do a beach reception but am slightly concerned about wind/sand. The pool looks nice but aren't there lots of people right around there? Seaside Grill or the terrace would be nice, but we're only 25 and can't do a private event there, and it's important to me to have a somewhat private space for speeches/dancing. (And I definitely don't want to use the ballroom - I want to know we're near the ocean!)

                      I am doing the free wedding package and tacking everything else on, so am looking at cost differences... Is it worth it to do gold menu over silver? Is it worth it to do silver over the regular menu at a restaurant? Is it important to pay for a cocktail hour vs. informally gathering the group at a bar?

                      But alas, they are all details - I'm sure it will be great no matter what. Thank you everyone for posting ideas and pictures - it's been very helpful,

                      Alysa
