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

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

 

I was wondering if anyone can send me the package Dreams Tulum usually sends out two months prior to the wedding? (natgurova@gmail.com) - With all the decoration choices, flowers, etc...I would like to see my options earlier in the game =)

My wedding is still far away, January 7th 2015, but I already picked up some decorative shells at Christmas Tree Shops, they are so pretty! I am planning on having a runner on the reception table with some shells scattered and lighting underneath. For the centerpiece - i really like this idea:

The resort quoted me $100 + 16% tax for the vase, 3 lilies and marbles, and $21+16% for the petals. Uhm...- a bag of petals costs $.89 on ebay with free shipping. Marbles can be found at any dollar store. And for the lilies with a vase, they quoted $80+16% tax. I still think it is pretty steep...What are you ladies doing for your centerpieces?

Wow! That is pricey! Is that just for ONE centerpiece? So you'd have to pay like $140 per table? Holy crap. I'm getting married January 4th, 2015 (we got a better rate and can purchase plane tickets separately when we want). My colors are purple (orchid and plum) and lime green with hints of yellow. I was going to use the resort for centerpieces but now I'm starting to think twice. I may make them ahead of time or bring the supplies down with me. It's just difficult with glass... I would like to maybe do something with white starfish and orchids.

Yap, it is only for ONE centerpiece! I think i will have four round tables, so that means that i have to multiply the price by four! I decided to not have the petals (simply because they might fly away, and the price - i can get them off ebay much cheaper!), and go with the shells. I got a nice "mixed bag" with large shells of different variety from Christmas Tree Shops, and i got starfish there as well (6 starfish of about 4 inch = $2). I figured, i will bring the marbles for the vase, bring my seashells and scatter them, and just deal with getting the vase + 3 calla lilies (which will cost me ($80 + 16% tax)x4 = $371...arghhh). Still thinking - buying the flameless candles and bringing them as "centerpieces" will be a cheaper option, but i do not think it will be enough.

And slowly but surely things will fly out of the budget...=(

Are the tables round or rectangular or do you have a choice?

If you are doing one big table it is a long rectangular table, otherwise they are round tables. The round tables are large and sit up to 10 ppl.

The centerpieces are crazy expensive! I am getting married there in April and have decided to bring my own centerpieces. The ones in the option book are sooo tiny and still cost $70/each. It was WAY cheaper to bring my own and pay for the set up fee as I am having to anyways since I am bringing other things. Also i know you can't do fake petals on the tables. It is against their policies. They would have to be real petals, so you would be forced to buy those through them :(

Hi , I've just picked my wedding dress and it's nothing like I was wanting / imagining for my dream beach wedding in November- it is a traditional wedding dress with train!!! Do I loose my deposit and cancel ?? Have on terrace instead of beach ?? I'm so confused and don't know what to do - any help advice reassurance would be appreciated !! Thanks

THANKS! One more question... if the actual centerpiece I use (my bridesmaids bouquets most likely!) is artificial but they aren't "loose" petals is that ok? They aren't going to blow away. I could buy real preserved orchids from saveoncrafts.com too to lay on the table, that might be ok? Thanks again!

Yep it is just the loose petals you cannot have.

I just designed this for my Welcome Bags! I'm going to order it a white polypropylene bag from discountmugs.com. About $190 for 50 bags (in white). I can do the same design for you if you like, for $10 and just change the date and colors.

If you are having a symbolic ceremony do you still get a 'document' for us and witnesses to sign?

I do not think so. My fiance's frat brother got his "Justice of Peace" license, so he will be marrying us. The wedding coordinator said that it is ok, and we do not need to be in the country 3 days before, or anything like that. Although if you are using a minister there to get you married - not sure what the protocol is. Send them an email! so far, they have been responding to my emails within 1 business day.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
