          We had our ceremony in the chapel and our cocktail hour in the chapel courtyard. If you time it right (before the asian and sushi restaurants open at approx 6.30pm) this area is lovely and private.
          It was also convenient for photos so that people didn't wander far from the chapel where our family photos were taken.

          At no extra cost to the ultimate package we had the following set up:
          *1 large round table for hor d'ouvres
          *2 round Highball drinks tables
          *1 small table for our ipod, speakers, table plan etc
          *1 welcome drinks table displaying welcome drinks recipe
          *1 small photo props table as requested at pre-wedding meeting with Natalia
          *Chairs for everyone around one edge of the courtyard
          *Side plates were available so although people couldn't sit at a table they could comfortably hold food in one hand or on their knees.

          All tables and chairs were covered in standard white linens.
          I feel that the set up was more than adequate for our party of 15.

          I imagine they provide facilities in relation to your party size and im sure you will be well looked after. For this reason I dont think paying extra for additional tables just for an hour is a necessary expense.

          If you are having a large group maybe confirm with your Wc that facilities will be sufficient.

          There are lots of lovely areas available and unless walking is an issue nowhere is more than a few minutes walk from anywhere, its all down to your preference. Depending on availability you can change your mind once you view the resort when you get there.
          Im sure there must be some photo examples of cocktail setups on here somewhere. I included a selection of resort images at the bottom of my review which may help you decide on your location preferences.

          Hope this helps

                  I was wondering if there is anyone getting married at DT next spring that has gotten quotes for DT that they wouldn't mind sharing. I just want to make sure what I'm getting is normal.

                    For all the brides and brides to be who have already been at Dreams Tulum - are there computers/internet to use at the resort? If so, is there a cost?
