    Thats because the Wedding in Paradise package does not include a dinner reception.  So if you want a dinner, you are paying $750 for them to set it up no matter where it is.  We ended up switching to the Dreams in Love package after doing some number crunching, it might be worth it in your case too.

    Here is her email response:

    **You have booked the Basic Wedding In Paradise Package, is possible to make a reservation for the Buffet Restaurant or Theme Night for the wedding dinner without additional cost or if you want to include a private event for dinner is required to pay $750usd for the location + Menu (silver or Golden per person)

    The Dinner is for 3 hour and include the drinks for the 3 hours.

        I haven't been on the website in a while as I've been extremely busy at work here, I promised myself I'd keep posting to future brides after my wedding, but that ended probably about 4 months ago!  (I was married last May- so I kept it up for a good 5 months )


        I am so jealous of all of you getting married at Dreams Tulum, I wish I could go back in time, it was THE BEST time.  All of my guests continue to say how my wedding was their favorite- you are really in for a beautiful treat, don't forget to enjoy this time!!  (setbacks don't matter, as long as you two are both there, in the end you will just have your beautiful wedding, and you'll be coming on this website jealous of all of the brides who get to do it now!)

          I told them I didn't need extra cake per person so I wasn't charged (everyone is drunk by the time they serve the cake anyway, you DONT need extra cake past the 20 people)


          Yes they charged me for the additional champage, that we DIDNT HAVE.  CHECK YOUR BILL!!  Unfortunately we didn't realize no one had champagne until after we paid and they wouldn't refund us... boooo.

              HI Ladies, just wanted to send a quick note to you all....we're still here at Dreams, and it's been absolutely amazing. I will try to give more detail once we're home, but for all you getting frustrated or stressed (I know I was before we got here).....once we met with Annabel everything was very easy going. They don't try to pressure you to pay more than the 20 guests included in the packages for the cocktail hour or the cake.....and she did let us switch the boutonnieres for flower petals, which Aurora had said no switches were allowed. SO try not to stress....Annabel was a dream to work with!

                Are any of you having a rehearsal and meeting with the minister/judge?  I'm just wondering how they would know what we want included in our ceremony.

                  We requested for a rehearsal but I'm not sure that the minister will be there.  I'm emailing him a copy of our ceremony though since I have written it up myself.  I emailed him a few months ago to find out what his normal ceremony was and told him I would be writing ours and he said it would be fine and he'd carry out our ceremony the way we wanted it.  I'm also going to take down 3 copies with me.  I'm giving one to the WC, having one on file, and having one of our guests hold onto a copy in case we get to the ceremony and he doesn't have it.

                    Can anyone tell me what kind of make-up products they use at the spa? Also should I go ahead with the make-up included in my package or hire someone else?
