    did you ever find out timing for the walk down the aisle? I have the exact same question...

      I only picked 3: walking in, signing the certificate, walking out

I didn't mind, since that means we can go to the cocktail hour too. We have the Mexican trio playing. should be fun!
          In my experience I definately recommend leaving at least an hour after the ceremony before you start your cocktail hour. By the time you have finished the service, had kisses and congratulations from your guests, done the confetti and group shots the hour just flies, thats even before you and hubby have even had your couples photos done which are still likely to go over into the cocktail hour.
          Our judge was also 20 mins late which pushed everything out timewise after the ceremony.

          We had the mexican trio play at our reception cos we knew we would be busy with photos during the cocktail hour, they are excellent and really get the party going, you will love them.

          Happy planning.

            Please dont worry, I know you will but it truly was the best day of my life, yes we had hiccups and hitches but honestly if you dont let things get to you the day will be wonderful. I spent so long stressing over the finer details that really I could laugh now at all that wasted time cos none of them mattered on the day, all that mattered was the man I love standing at the end of the aisle smiling at me, looking like he might jump for joy and I swear the whole place could have fallen down around my ears and I wouldnt have cared!!!.

            I dont have the exact timing but its really not very far at all I would say 30 secs to a min tops.

                Ok ladies, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I called Dreams Tulum directly and I kindly explained my dilemma to them. To my surprise they told me not to worry about it! They said they would honor the old promotion (considering I have 12 rooms booked with 36 people) I asked them if they could “kindly put it in writing”, and a day later they sent me the email! My worrying is over, thanks for your support girls- it’s nice to know I have someone to vent to!!!

                    Jayreneewed, I'm so glad to hear that!!! YAY!! THat will save you a lot of stress that you don't need during your wedding week!!

                    I wonder if there are any other July brides who will be there around the same time as us! :) It's so exciting to think that we will be there in about 2.5 months! I'm going to be there from July 6-17.

                    Is your group planning any activities while they are there? We are thinking Xel-ha one day, Tulum Ruins another day, and the dos ojos cenote another day. Plus a shopping trip in there too. We don't want to do too much though cause we really want to relax and enjoy the resort!
