The new Dreams Tulum thread! (Post all DT Qs&As here)

Recommended Posts

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 msnwink.gif)

 

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!)

xoxoxo

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?

    • Congratulations and Welcome to the BDW forum!!  I have toured Sensatori Azul Beach Riviera Maya and it is a really nice resort. We had a group booked there a few years ago and they all had an awesome time.  I am one of the DR specialists and have stayed a few times at Now Onyx in Punta Cana.  I love, love, love the resort!!   There is an awesome adults only area & pool within the resort and they're in the process of adding a new family section with a new pool area. This is scheduled to be complated later this year.  The added bonus of adults being able to access Breathless Punta Cana is awesome, you get two resorts for the price of one! Another great family friendly resort in Punta Cana is Royalton Bavaro. They have a great lazy river with a swim up "grotto" bar, flow rider, tot water play area, mini golf, and Casino and sports bar/disco. There really is something for everyone. Now Onyx and Royalton Bavaro are both new resorts that just opened in the past few years. Rooms are modern&contemporary, food is great at both!  Please contact us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if we can answer any questions for you, send resort info, and check group rates for you.  We do not charge any service fees for our services and we're here to make the planning process as stress free as possible for you!! Thank you! TA Patty    
    • Hi there!! Congrats on your engagement. You have definitely come to the right place to plan your destination wedding -- this site is a gold mine for ideas and tips for destination couples. I was a destination bride myself 10 years ago and lived on this site obsessively for 2 years For the Dominican Republic, I think a great resort that fits what you're looking for is Now Onyx! They have amazing swimup suites, they are an oceanfront resort and best of all, they have both an incredible adults only section with the best pool area and a family friendly areas as well. The adults in your group will also have access to Breathless Punta Cana, which is next door where they have a great nightclub and casino but they can also use all the amenities there as well (as long as the property has not been bought out for your travel dates).  I along with a few agents of Wright Travel Agency, which is the official agency of this forum, stayed there for 4 days this past January and I was thoroughly impressed with the accommodations, amenities, food and excellent service. Also, they have an amazing wedding team there that does everything to please couples and give them the wedding of their dreams! If you want information about this resort and pricing, I suggest you contact Wright Travel Agency and one of their Dominican Republic specialist will get back to you! Wright Travel also has exclusive promos and discounts to many resorts -- including this one. There is a great promo called the Bride and Groom Fly Free credit, which can save you up to $1,000!!! You can contact them here www.wrighttravelagency.com or email directly at info@wrighttravelagency.com  Hope that helps and again, congrats!!! ❤️ 
    • I recommend reading this article
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
