      I am getting so excited! My wedding is June 21st at 6pm. It looks like there will be close to 20 of us. More would be fun, but I'm kind of looking forward to having a smaller group. Has anybody else been married or getting married soon at DT with fewer than 25 people? I am interested in hearing about your reception and also what your experience was for getting dinner reservations for the group. My understanding is that less than 25 people can get reservations together at any of the restaurants? I am hoping to have a group dinner the first night everyone arrives, but that will be Sat. night so if it happens to be a fiesta night we would probably just meet on the patio.
      It's a Wonderful Life!

        Did anyone get married before going to DT? Do the legal stuff in your city and then have the symbolic ceremony in Mexico? I am thinking that is what I want to do now. Any thoughts?

          We got married 2 weeks before we left for Mexico. It was much easier to do it at home-plus we are Jewish and it was really importnant to get married in front of a Rabbi for us.

            That's what our plan is. We'll likely do the official thing here late this year, and we're just doing a symbolic ceremony in Mexico, with a friend as the officiant. We liked the idea of having a friend perform our ceremony, and it also saves the trouble of the bloodwork and getting the marriage certificate translated.

              Hi Erin,

              I'm getting married on July 10 at Dreams Tulum and I'm only going to have about 10 guests. I've been inquiring about doing dinner reservations as well, and from what I can tell on their wedding guide, they charge a setup fee of about $20 per person to "setup" your wedding table of guests in one of the restaurants. The buffet or theme night would be free. I think this is a little ridiculous if they actually charge to have you setup a table for 10 in one of the restaurants, seeing as we can just go to the restaurant ourselves and ask for a table for 12 people, at no extra cost, and we can do that at any restaurant. Even if the restaurant doesn't usually put tables together, you can request a few tables in the same area, so you are all close enough to visit together.

              Have you filled out your wedding form yet that the resort sent?

                I hope you hear back soon!!

                I was originally booked at drc, but liked that dt offered me more privacy for my wedding. I'm not sure if things have changed, but when I did site tours in December 2009, the beach wedding area was right on top of other guests. Right on top.

                Xo,
                tt
                Hey tt,
                So great that you've seen both sites. And glad to hear that you are happy with the switch from drc to dt!
                And think its time to give them a call!
                Meggan

                  I don't think any of the past brides have used this photographer before.

                  I only had 10 guests, you can read my review to answer your questions.

                  if you look at the detailed bride list on page 1, it says how many guests they had, and you could read their review too (the links don't work due to a forum upgrade, but you can just do an advanced search by username to find the reviews)

                  Well the restaurants may not accommodate you with a group of 12 even if you just walk in. Their policy is that more than 10 people is a "group" and requires the special accommodations and fee. This is because it's more work for them to cater to groups of this size. That being said, you may get lucky and be able to walk into a restaurant and get a big table all together or several tables next to each other. If you are only 10-12 then I can see this being the case, but I doubt it if you are 15-20 or more. But even if they do do it it's possible you may have to wait a long time for such a big table. But you can certainly try. However if you want to do a group dinner and guarantee that everyone sits together and that you don't wait forever you're probably better off going to the buffet.

                    I booked Samuel Luna for our wedding, May 21st. I hope he is good, I've heard good things also and he always gets back to me within the day or the next day after. We are coming back from Mexico on 5/25, so I will be sure to post my thoughts when I get back =)
                    Great! Your date is coming up soon! I hope you have a wonderful time and I look forward to hearing about the photography!
