    Yes, most brides who had multiple weddings on their day have had no problems, StarlitK did, and I think another bride who got married a few days before or after her also mentioned a few issues (not quite to the extent of StarlitK but not perfect either).

    It definitely is a risk you take with DT versus with other results, but in most cases it ends up not being a problem.

      What size of fabric is needed for the gazeebo? I'm wanting to bring down another color of fabric and am trying to figure out how much I need to get. Also what's the dimension of the tables, I'm thinking of getting my own overlays for them.

          I think they did some server upgrades, and a lot of the links changed. You can find her review here or search the reviews for Tulum

            Hi..I've had this problem too. I think it's because we're newer. Once you accumulate a certain amount of points, or posts, then you get access to other links, documents, etc.

            Strange, huh? I guess it's to encourage people to continue posting. I think I have to post 150 times before I can download documents. That means I hae like 147 more posts to go.....

              Hi ladies!

              I am confirmed for Dec. 4, 2010!!! I am so excited!! I have a bunch of questions and I am going to just throw them out there. Thank you in advance for your help!!



              1. For a religious ceremony (not civil), how many days do we need to be down there prior to the wedding day?

              2. Has anyone on here gotten married in the chapel? I know it's small, but how many people were you able to fit comfortably and did you enjoy the chapel?

              3. Does Dreams Tulum handle finding the Catholic priest for our ceremony? Will he speak in English?

              4. What specific decorations are included in that package for the reception (white linens, bows on the chair, etc.?)

              5. If there are other weddings on my day, do I have to reserve the reception spot I want in advance?

              6. Is early December a slow time at the resort? I’ve heard some restaurants/bars are closed in slow times. Anyone have this experience?

              7. What time do the bars/restaurants at DT close?

              8. If the reception ends around 10 or so, any suggestions for post-party?

              Thanks ladies. I really appreciate al your help.

                I cant answer all your questions but I will try :)
                You have to get there 3 days before your ceremony for the legal requirements.
                I didnt get married in the chapel but we did look at it and I would say that it could hold about 40 people.
                Your priest should speak English-the one we had did.
                yes there are going to be other weddings on your day-a month before your date they will send you a form and you can tell them at that time where you want your ceremony and reception.
                Early December should be quiet since most people dont go on winter vacation until end of December.

                Hopefully I shed some light for you

I'd rather not have to stress over certain planning that can be taken care of prior to getting there since I'm sure I'll already be nervous enough.
                    I'm glad you found my review helpful. As Sunbride mentioned, most brides did not seem to report the type of issues that I encountered. Despite our issues, we still did have a beautiful wedding at DT. But, choosing the right resort is definitely a personal decision. Some brides wouldn't have minded the things that happened to us, and some would've thought they are unbearable - its just about knowing what you are looking for!

                    Good luck wherever you go!

                      Thanks for letting me know. I corrected the links, so they should work now.
