    LaNell:
    "Im getting married May 29,2010 @ six PM I will be more than happy to do this"

    That is great! I sent an email to jmb0902 about the potential to buy some things from her,when she is done with them (wedding date: Nov. 28th, 2009). She lives about an hour and 15 min. from me so I could easily go pick up the items she is willing to part with. Just like her, I too liked Starlitk's set up with the paper lanterns (light green, white, aqua), and chair sashes (aqua), so I am hoping to get the hand me downs and we can share the costs, or work out something! I will shoot you an email when I get more information from JoAnn!

    Congrats! I look forward to meeting you Memorial Day weekend 2010! Whoop whoop!
    Please feel free to email me any questions or concerns you come across (hoping that we don't have any issues).....but if we do, we can work together too resolve them! I got your back if you have mine! ;-)

    TTYS! :)

Has this been the case with past brides too? We have 26 guests so I realize this isn't a ton of money, but I just hadn't heard about this before.
      They did tell me it would cost $150 to set up paper lanterns. But, I've never heard of the $2/person. Where are you ordering your sashes from?

        hey ladies! I have a food question for any of the past brides that are still around....i have the gold menu and was thinking about choosing the "vanilla puff pastry cake with cognac sauce" for dessert. Now my question is...is it really like a cake or is it more of a cream puff?? if anyone had this as their dessert, please let me know what you thought of it. If it's a cake than I don't think I want it since we are also having a wedding cake.

          Hi Ladies,

          In regards to the extra charges ($2 per person) for chair sashes, set up, etc. I was quoted the same thing by Aurora for July 2010. She said if they supply chair sashes, it was $5 per person, but if I bring them, then its $2 per person for set up of sashes on chairs.
          Also,she said if I choose the dreams ultimate package, the white tulle on the gazebo is free, but if I bring colored tulle, then it's $60 for the setup. If I choose the free package, then I have to pay $150 for white tulle on the gazebo, because they don't provide that with the free package. That seems a little strange to me...they would just have a bare gazebo for your wedding unless you pay the $150 extra? Also, with the free package if you bring your own tulle, they will charge you $60 to set it up. Has anyone else who had the free package recently experienced this? Did you have to pay the $150 (if you didn't bring tulle) or $60 (if you did bring your own tulle) to have the gazebo decorated?

            In case you are interested... the resort has a big book full of fabric samples available for bows and table settings for rent. They have different sheens, olors and patterns. When I priced renting versus buying, sewing and transporting myself... the costs arent too different.

              Hi everyone!!
              The attached link is to photobucket where I put a few photos of 2 weddings at Dreams Tulum that I had the privelage of looking in on. The photos show:
              1. The format of the flowers on the canopy (3 clusters) which is an option for the Ultimate package
              2. Flowers used to create an aisle which is the other option for an ultimate package. I wa told that if you want both, there is an additional $150 charge.
              3. A reception table set up at the Dolphin pool
              4. A close up of the white table cloth that is included in package.
              5. The "sound system" --- it's a large speaker on a pole. I was quoted $160 for reception (including classical music played while the guests are being seated) and $220 for the reception - you supply music

              Other items I found out:
              1. They have a huge book of fabrics to use for bows, table cloths ect. I asked for a sheer overlay, in a custom color (color I want is not in the book) and was quoted $20 per table.
              2. Bouquet... All of the photos of the resort bouquets are just "models". You choose the general shape of the one you like and then they create it in your colors.
              3. Locations for receptions/cocktail hour... we toured them all and you pretty much can't go wrong with any!! In case it matters to you...if you choose a location by one of the pools, be prepared for people to still be wimming in it during your reception.

                Other details -

                - The rent candles and holders, but prices were a bit ridiculous.
                - The photographer... with the package, shows up to the brides room 15 minutes before the ceremony for photos. About 5 minutes before, they take a few photos of the groom. They photograph the ceremony and then group photos afterwards. They will then take a few more photos of the bride and groom on the beach. If you want photos taken around the resort you have to - bring your own photographer or buy extra time with the resort photographer. We were quoted $440 for the 30 photo add on.
                - Photos - you choose the ones you want. The ultimate package comes with 50. They will print 6 x 8's for you and give you a cd.
                -Tables - your choice of round or rectangle. Each table seats 6 people.
                - Rooms - Ocean Front are actually pool front.
                - Rooms - If you don't want a long hike in your dress - book a room in the Dreams section not the Hacienda section. Any of the Dreams garden view rooms will be very close to the ceremony location.

                These are all of the details I can remeber at the moment.... please let me know if you have any questions.

                  Did anyone hear you have to have 50 people for the seaside grill? That is so silly I already have to pay 750 for a private reception

                    Seaside Grill - this is what Natalia told me.... During slow season, the grill is closed on some nights. If it is closed, you may have it as an option, no minimum numbers. If the Seaide grill is not closed - - they will section off one half of it and set up your reception table. There will be no walls or dividers, just your table and everyone elses.

                    Hope this helps!
