    I have purchased stuff from Chich wedding boutique and wedding things canada. I was happy with all my purchases.

     

     

    I have a question regarding the cocktail hour. Has anyone decided where they are hosting theirs? We get married on the beach and our reception is also on the beach. I know cocktail hour can either be in the lobby or on the beach. With the lobby they would have chairs so I'd imagine it would be more comfortable. However it doesnt seem very "private".

      Weddingstar is awesome! And they are an Alberta company out of medicine hat! I ordered a bunch of stuff from them, including personalized playing cards and it was delivered to my door in Calgary in 2 days! Etsy is also pretty cool for handmade items

        Hi bride81, Anabel sent back the right measurements which make waaaay more sense ha ha she also sent us the linen catalogue and there wasnt anything I really liked. I think we are going to order our linens from ebay (that makes me very nervous, Ive only purchased lanterns from ebay) but I will keep you updated!

         

        Sheena, thank you so much for the information. We had figured there would be a charge for setting up the stuff and we are okay with that...I totally agree with you wanting to just relax and not worry about setting stuff up. I was more worried about the cost of having them lugged to Mexico ha ha.

         

        Bibi, we are having ours in the chapel area. It seems to be a bit private (its not 100% though) and it looks like a nice location.

         

        Also, another one of my endless questions ha ha I just tried order tote bags from www.cheaptotes.com and it seems they dont ship to canade (even though its an option :S) I checked out Canadian OOT bags and another thread but I didnt see where they have gotten theirs. Has any Canadian brides ordered tote bags online

            Ladies, I am hoping you can help me out.  What kind of deals are you getting for booking the wedding. I was under the impression that  for every night you book you get the 6th for free. Now my TA is telling me that this is not true and we will just book as usual??!!   Can you ladies help me out and let me know what kind of deals I should expect.  I am SO confused and thought that I had this locked in.  I am waiting to send out my STD's for this-  Ugh

              Hi Bride81

               

              I booked in January and at that time, if I booked 6 double occupancy rooms (a room with 2 ppl in it), I got that 6th room for free.  That means that 10 people pay and 2 are free.   They will give you a maximum of 3 free rooms which means you would need to book 36 people (or 18 double occupancy rooms) to get 3 of those rooms for free. In the end, I got 2 free rooms, and I will also be getting 1 free room upgrade.  I was a room shy of a 3rd free room. Ah well.  I can choose whether I want to give people free rooms or whether I want to split the free monetary value between my guests.

               

              If you go to the Dreams Tulum website, there is a section entitled "Current Promotions", then "Dreams Gatherings, Getaways, and Groups".  I showed this to my travel agent and I was entitled to everything except for the $200 worth of vouchers as the package I got through my travel provider didn't offer this.  I thought that because it was a Dreams promotion, I was entitled to all of it but I guess it has something to do with your travel provider as well.  

               

              I think that the only person that can answer this clearly for you is your travel agent.  Also, have you looked into booking with Wright Travel with Tammy, who is also the owner of this forum?  I think that if I had known about her in the early stages, I would have looked into that. Her agency apparently has a great relationship with the Dreams Tulum and I think she's pretty familiar with all this stuff.

              I think I'm going to have my cocktail hour in the courtyard outside the chapel.  Also, I think I'll have some cocktail tables set up there and there is a bar nearby apparently.  I don't have pictures or anything but from all the information that I've received from this forum, that location seems to fit my wedding; I'm getting married in the chapel.

              I haven't been posting a lot lately but I try to log on and take a look at what's happening on this thread.  I just wanted to say thanks to everyone for posting where they are getting all their wedding supplies!  I am not there yet, but I'll be looking into them when I get there!!
