    Yeah! I thought that was pretty ridiculous when I heard the price. However, what I don't understand is the wedding guide for 2010 that Aurora sent me, it says $150 for ceremony for 30 minutes, not $165 as she quoted me. But it definitely does say $240 for the reception for 3 hours. That's $390 just for a speaker system for the ceremony and reception!! Maybe a few of us brides should buy a speaker system and share it, since there are a few of us getting married around the same time, you on June 19, I think there are a few in the last week of June, and I'm July 10, and then jayreneewed on July 15. We could split the cost of buying a system, and then just pass it from bride to bride

      Soooo sorry to hear that! Thank goodness you are a DT bride! These girls have been through governmental closures and the swine flu, so I don't think you could find a better support group for this kind of thing. :) Hang in there, and just remember that it will work out - no matter which day it happens, it'll be fantastic.

          Highlights:
          1. I have photos of the floral arrangements available for the Ultimate package... both of them. You get to pick either flowers on the canopy or flowers lingin th aisle.
          2. I sat with one of the resort photographers and went through some of the weddings they shot. They do really nice work! I was surprised. They can do fish eye shots, sepias and basic edits. You get the cd so if you want to photoshop pics at home to make them more "artsy" you can.
          3. Watched 2 legal ceremony weddings. Both couples were happy with their weddings (we asked them!)

          I'll put more info together when I have more time. But I am sure Dreams Tulum is a good decision for our wedding!!

            Hi Ladies!!

            I'm fairly new to this website but I've noticed that you guys provide tons of great information and I thank you!!!

            We've booked our wedding date!! April 29, 2010!!

            Our ceremony is at 12 pm (a little early for my liking) and I'm just wondering if anyone has any good ideas of what to get the guests to do from after the ceremony until dinner time?

            Also, is there anyone else on here that has their wedding during the same week as our (April 24 - May 1, 2010)

            Any further tips, advice on locations, or suggestions to help us start planning would be greatly appreciated!!!

            Thanks!
            Tara

                We thought of that too, since we already have an ipod docking system that we'll be bringing.... but the major reason for us renting is to have the mic for our vows. Nothing worse than going to a wedding and not being able to hear the couple talk. .... but I suppose that depends on the size as well.
