    Wow, it sounds like they are charging you for everything! My girlfriend got married two years ago and got the free package and she got a bunch of stuff just thrown in. I guess times have changed. Thanks for the info, I guess I'll look out for these costs.

      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.
      It is really boggling to me how they can quote so many different things to different people, that she told you 160 for the sound system for ceremony, but I was told 165 (not including taxes/15%setup, etc) and in the wedding guide for 2010 it says 150 (not including taxes/setup fee). And for the reception I was quoted 240 not 220. Also some people are being quoted for 2/per person for setup of sashes, and others are being quoted 3/per person for setup, and some aren't being quoted anything for that....it's hard to know what we'll actually be charged when the time comes!

      I emailed Aurora to ask about the cake for the free package, but does anyone know, if I choose the free package, do I still get to pick how the cake is decorated? Flowers, colors, etc? Can I "upgrade" to a larger cake? Has anyone done this?

      As a side note - I love this forum!! :) Thanks to everyone for being so helpful!

        I had the free cake and it was a one layer tres leche cake-it was so good. They put real flowers that matched my bouquet on top of it. I am pretty sure that you dont get to pick the cake. I am sure that if you want to upgrade and pay for a different one you can.

          @AmyandRich- the link doesn't appear to be working. I would love to see these photos, could you try again? thanks :)

                    Amy, thanks for sharing the pictures. I was just wondering...does anyone know if a mic comes with the speaker when you rent it?
