    Cant wait to see some new reviews on here, i've been MIA for a while but I cant seem to find any recent reviews since I was last here!!!

    I have a question regarding contracts. A few of you have mentioned receiving contracts or referred to making sure your choices for certain things are in your contracts well Im getting married in 4 months, I booked way back in early 2008 and as yet I have not received anything resembling a contract.

    Other than a confirmation email in 2008 when I first booked and another confirmation reply approx 3 months ago when I forwarded our travel details I have had no information other than what I learn here from you girls.

    Q. Should I be worried?

    Q. Do I have to request a contract?

    Q. Based on your experience when should I expect to receive a contract?

    Q. What kind of info should be in my contract?

    Q. When I booked in 2008 I was not required to pay a deposit and still have never been asked for one, is this possibly why I dont have a contract?

    Thanks Ladies. X

      Wow, I'm glad the recent brides had such good reviews - I am considering this resort too!

      If anyone has any recent pics, it would be great if you could email me! onyemao@yahoo.com

      Also, what kind of rates were you able to secure for your guests for November? I was thinking of next June, but the quotes are rather high. What is November like? Thanks

        Northern Flasher - I wouldn't worry. You will receive an email from your wedding coordinator 4-6 weeks in advance of your date with a "contract". It is not actually a contract, but a questionnaire you fill out where you specify your choices on things like food, reception location, etc. Also you give them your guest count, arrival info, etc. And you can pretty much change things when you arrive and meet with your WC as well. You don't get a contract until you actually sit down with the WC and see the costs written out in front of you.

        Aliceo - my guests mostly booked through Apple Vacations in the US, and paid $665 for five nights or $770 for six nights (not including air). We booked air separately, as guests were flying from different airports.

        Hope this helps!

          YES, this is the perfect way to put it, I 100% agree. It's all what you make of it. Dreams Tulum may not be the best choice but it is a very very good one.

          I want to thank everyone, especially SunBride and Blkatz for all the information that was shared here!
          Congratulations! I hope you come back and write a full review, I'm sure the future brides would love to hear more about the things you wish you did differently. I know for me, the best way you can thank me for the help this provided you is to write a review to keep the good karma going and help future brides.

              I didnt have a contract at all and I wouldnt be worried about it!

              I agree with Sunbride, I learned so much on here that I knew I had to give back when I got back from my wedding!

                Hi girls!

                I'm still fairly new to this site. I think it's amazing! Everyone has such great ideas!!

                Quick question about a sound system. I've notice some people have been using an ipod dock and that's been enough and others have been renting the sound system for the ceremony and reception. We have about 30 people coming to our wedding. Do you think it would be fine to just use our ipod dock or is their sound system worth paying for?

                Thanks guys!! and I can't wait for the new reviews!!
