Dreams Tulum Closure (consolidated thread)

I replied to Sandra's e-mail a few days ago, and she has yet to reply (which is to be expected...considering all the drama)

about 50% of my guests book thru expedia. Incuding FH and I! We have yet to receive a phone call either. I hope they do get in touch with us soon though...

Does any one know what our options are? besides Dreams Cancun? (not an option for us) and Secrets Silversands?

any other resorts at this point in time Dreams Tulum has mentioned sending you and your wedding party?

Dreams Cancun is super beautiful. And they put on great weddings. But I dont want to be staying in Cancun. The Mayan Riviera is were we want to stay. All our wedding related activities are in the Mayan. And we dont want to be surrounded by all the Cancun party goers... argh!

THANKS LADIES!!!!! without this forum, I would be a disaster. Even though FH says I am regardless wink.gif

I wouldn't give up just yet! Her email talked about a plan B just in case we need it. They're hoping to reopen Nov. 1. But again that is their hope. I don't believe in dates. It's either going to happen or its not but I don't think it's right for them to give people definitive dates since each date so far has fallen through. The 6th, the 13th, the 31st. I don't buy any of those dates.
From what I understand, the court ruling could be any day. Either today, next month or next year. What I would strongly advise is to create a back-up plan. That's what Sandra and I are working on.
I know they are offering Dreams Cancun, Silversands and Barcelo Maya.
Go on to their websites, look at their pictures and see which one fits you. And I do believe it's best to let them know what your preference is ASAP so they can start doing all the legwork in case its necessary.

Remember why most of us picked a destination wedding? Easy, stress-free.
Yeah, not for us DT brides!

I'm right with you ladies...haven't heard much update except they are hoping for a Nov. 1 opening; yet that's been the 4th or so date they've updated too, so who knows...soon enough it could be they hope to open end of Dec. & we just can't all be left up in the air.


So what are the options you ladies have been told that you can move to & they'll honor our prices? I've been given


Dreams Cancun

Barcelo Mayan Palace

Iberostar Parisio (sp?)


Does anyone have any opinions on these for us switching from DT? I heard the Barcelo's aren't that great except for this Mayan Palace one is only about a year old & really nice? Our TA would like us to decided TODAY, so I'd love input.

i'm just getting caught up on this and wanted to say to all you girls, have faith, be organized, and try not to stress! there is a reason and a plan for everything and your weddings will all end up beautiful no matter where they have to be.


yes you planned a DW to be stress-free, so dont stress and just make sure you are taken care of. so, your menus dont match, your logo's dont work anymore, look at them as vintage! collectibles no longer available! just try to make the most of it and know that the most important part is you will soon be married to your soon-to-be hubby :) regardless, either way you will be on a fantastic vacation in an amazing country and you will have a crazy story to tell your future grandchildren :)


hang in there girls! so many of you are so close!

Maura, thanks! I think we've all got to consider it as an option so if you wouldn't mind having her take those pictures, that would be helpful! THANK YOU!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
