    Would anyone have a good map of tulum?

     

    . I tried to get one from google map but I cant seem to figure out how to copy the map :( And I wasn't able to find one when I searched the other forums on here.

      I don't have a good map, but I can suggest going to google maps, doing a quick screen shot, then you can copy paste that to Your paint app to cut zoom ect:). I did it for the resort map, as dream's site is flash.

I'm bringing all of these emails with me as proof of the promises that we're made to me. Sorry ladies, I've been a bridezilla! Especially after seeing all of these extra set up charges..

        I understand what you mean - at first it seems like a GREAT deal.  Then all of these extras start popping up.  I don't want to spend my day worrying about decorations, but I also don't want to spend a fortune paying someone else to do it!!

          It's depressing...lol. Well my step dad said he doesn't mind helping set things up. We only have 20 ppl so it's really not a lot of work for us. Maybe when I get there I'll decide to stop being so cheap:)

            Unfortunately, that's how all the resorts operate. When it came down to it, I didn't want anyone to lift a finger (including me) and just paid the extra. I'm glad I did, and it was still much cheaper than a wedding at home. Please don't feel like its just Dreams that has all the extra charges - they all do, and you made a great decision to go with them. Their packages are still really great - a lot of resorts charge a small fortune to be able to just have a private reception, and that included in two of their packages.

              I guess in the beginning I didn't think I would really want much, then when I started planning I found that there are a lot of things that might be really nice. I might end up paying the setup charges mySelf, depending on how things add up. Thanks for the tip:) I guess I feel better about this resort now...

                I was doing everything myself. Then I got there and stop stressing about everything. At that point $200 bucks was well worth it to not deal with anything. That and my husband told me to stop being so cheap and go to the spa instead. Best idea he ever had.

                  My fiancĀ© complains sooooo much that I'm cheap! But $200 doesn't sound bad, I guess I'm letting it get blown up in my mind , thinking it willbe more lol. We are ditching the lanterns already.... I guess the DJ will have lighting? I really do love this resort, this is where we fell in love on vacay... I guess I'll stop stressing !thanks:)

                    Not sure. We didn't have a dj, we just used the sound system. The normally charge a bunch if you want the dance floor though. We did the Dreams of Love package (18 people,so no extra charges for additional people) and paid extra for the following: Arch setup (I brought material) Chiavari chairs for ceremony only Paper lantern set-up Misc setup (menu cards, favors, guest book, etc) Extend reception by 1 hour Vendor fee for Del Sol Photography Sound system for ceremony and reception It totally can add up! But then I think of how awesome the day was and don't regret a penny. Best part? My husband, after dancing for a few hours, got hungry. I got one of the waiters to get him fries and a bacon cheeseburger. Everyone took one look at him and we all ordered one. The last thing you'll be thinking of is "I wish I had saved that $150 and set up the paper lanterns myself". You'll be thinking "this is the best wedding EVER. We should go jump in the pool."
