I am really trying to decide between Dreams Tulum and Dreams PA. I am really really struggling.
How many on-site wedding locations do they have here?
I am not positive about all of the wedding locations. I know the beach and the gazebo are two(and the most popular) choices. We are doing the gazebo for both the ceremony and the reception. I felt like it was a good choice for the reception because it is pretty much private but you don't have to pay the extra fee for a private reception at the restaurant:)

RoryS/Everyone, I have a theory. What I'm starting to notice from Bianca's comments and other brides is that some of the "rules" seem flexible. For example if the resort is empty, they'll let her have her rehearsal on the patio. Or that El Patio was closed on Friday... I bet if they were packed it might not be closed. I guess my point is that I'm not going to count on all the perks that other brides get but I'm just going to show up with a good attitude and hope Jacy takes care of us. I mean it's Mexico right... I just can't believe that they wouldn’t let someone have a reception by the adult pool because there was a couple of kids in the party. Anyway it's just my opinion. But I realized if I stress and try to add up every cost before arriving then I'll get really pissed/stress if I show up and Jacy says "well actually it going to costs xyz more money." So we're just going down with a budget. If that means our guests only get 1 appetizer instead of 3 or that we all squish into the buffet for the rehearsal dinner so be it... plus we might get some special perks/attention because we'll have a good attitude and be flexible. Any thoughts?
Recent Brides (I don't want to miss anyone),
And I must give amazingly high props to the May/June 2009 brides! You are the prime examples of being flexible.... from flight cancellations to destination changes... you ladies are AWESOME.
I'm a May 2010 bride too, YAY! I picked Puerto Aventuras instead of Tulum because it was recently renovated, it has snorkeling right off it beach, it's in a gated community, easy walk to the small village with dolphins/sea life/shopping/tours. I feel like it's a lot less secluded then Tulum while being quaint and safe. Plus I think it's a shorter drive from the airport. As for night life I think RoryS found out about a shuttle that will take people to Playa del Carmen for nightlife fun. So I was thinking of giving all my party loving friends that info in their OOT bags.
One last thing, I just had my first dream about the wedding. I was running around in my gown before the wedding trying to change the reception location. Even though it was stressful I wanted to keep dreaming because dreaming about our wedding was so exciting. And I still have a year left, heehee.

Jacy said they could set up a long table at Portofino for us, but that was not the case. i went up to the hostess and told her what we wanted and she offered to set up 2 tables for us on the deck, one for 10 and the other for 9. My dad left them like a $25 tip per waiter. We had 2. I would have known sooner about not being able to set up the tables for us, but my voicemail was not working.
OMFG IT WAS WINDY!!! No joke. That part was horrible. My veil flew out of my hair. Luckily my sister caught it. There was a chair or two that got blown across the gazebo and we had to cut out the sand ceremony. I did not ask for the speakers but it was set up for us anyways. I asked for the videographer and he was there. There were also like 3 resort photographers plus my photographer, Martha Roque. Everything was nice. I didn't really care about the decorations at this point. they had the tulle wrapped around the poles like we've seen in other photos. There were two floral pieces set up on the front two poles and then one on the table. Thats about it.
This was gorgeous! Oceana was closed that night so we had it there WITH our 3 kids. Jacy said it was not a problem. The set up was amazing. I really need to post photos of this. Jacy did an amazing job. One part that I didn't let bother me was that there were some rude people on their balcony making "sex" noises. A bit immature, but they eventually stopped.
let me know if you guys have any questions... I will try to post some pics in the next week or so.
OOOOHHHH!! My photographer's husband also owns a transportation company. We got a great rate to take us to the ruins on Friday. We went to Coba and Tulum and had lunch in between. The beach at tulum is something you do NOT want to miss! We paid $320 for two 14 passenger vans that had a cooler with water and beer. Sinal tours was charging $390 I think for the 2 vans without the cooler with drinks.
