      ok I need to clear up a question I'm having while adding up my prices here....is the champagne toast included for 20 or is that a complete other cost all together?

        It's included in the ultimate package for 20 people.

        Wedding cake and sparkling wine for 20 guests
        •One hour Gold cocktail party with hors d’oeuvres (for up to 20 guests staying at the hotel)

         

        Got to pay for everyone after that. Although glasses of champagne are free at the bar...so I'm hoping I can still figure a way out around this. Just got to befriend the bartender a few days before the wedding and ask if he can make some champagne drinks ready for right after the ceremony.

          Hi All,

          I just got a response from Aurora regarding the dimensions for the wedding canopy by the Seaside Grill.  This is what she said:

          The measures for the canopy are:

          Height 2.20 Meters

          Width  2.50 meters

          Hope this helps some of you.

            We are looking for a DJ right now as well. Both DJ Dorremix and DJ Mannia quoted me $900.

            I just contacted DJ Bijan...his price definitely is more appealing!! Had anyone heard any good reviews from him?

             

            We definitely need to find a way to keep our costs down. So far we already have 10 more people booked than we budgeted for... and our wedding is still 8 months away!! eeek

              Hey veronica!!

               

              I am also really upset that DT won't let me exchange the photography for the videography in the Dreams of Love package. It just doesn't make sense since both services are the same price!

               

              How much is it to extend the private reception?

               

              Also, I just got an email from Landy today and she mentioned that the private reception is now $800.. I just had to laugh! I have e-mails from them saying it is $750 and I'm sure glad I saved them!

              I agree that the extra cost for the cocktail hour are ridiculous when you can just have everyone meet up at a bar and casually get drinks and talk before the reception begins.  I have it on my spreadsheet prepared to pay for an extra hour if we absolutely have to just so it's in my budget in case because we hired a DJ and he will be playing until 10:30. Fortunately I'm still budgeting for 50 just in case they all change their minds but doubtful :(.

                To extend it an hour is $15 per person, which I have budgeted for, but I'm going to play the whole no we still are going to keep going I don't care if we have waitstaff and hope I don't get charged for it though.

                  Thanks!

                  I will def do the same thing... I just don't want them to turn off the music at 9:30 and tell us we all have to leave. That would be a huge downer on the night!

                   

                  I wonder if desires nightclub is a good option for after the wedding reception is over?!?

                    Hi Everyone,

                     

                    I joined this website pretty close to my wedding so did not do a lot of posting before the wedding but I wanted to say how amazing our wedding was at Dreams Tulum. You have all picked an amazing place to get married!! I just received the slideshow of our wedding from Elizabeth Medina. She did such an amazing job and there are some really good pictures of Dreams so I thought I would share.

                     

                    Best of luck with the rest of your planning!!
