Where to Trash the Dress in Tulum

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies!


Getting married at Dreams Tulum, really soon! I am looking for some ideas for places to shoot our Trash the Dress session close by. I know we are not permitted to shoot at the ruins, and we already know about possible shooting at Xel-Ha, but I was wondering if you super-knowledgeable women have any other ideas.


And help would be greatly appreciated!

First off congrats on your upcoming wedding! You must be so excited wink.gif


A lot of brides utilize the beautiful cenotes in the area for TTD pics and of course there are so many beaches in the area that would be exquisite backdrops. I know between Tulum and Playa del Carmen there are tons of fantastic beaches along that stretch. I would definitely do a search in the Cancun/Riviera Maya section for good locations as any applicable rules, entrance fees, etc. to the cenotes or beaches have been discussed thoroughly in the past.


Hope this helps, and wherever you decide ~ make sure you share your pics with us!!! rolleyes.gif

Hi Tia,

You are able to shoot at the ruins, you just need special permission. You can e-mail


or fax

01 983 83 72411

I suggest using the fax number.

Also, you can use the cenotes as mentioned above. We used Hidden Worlds, but Labna Ha is also beautiful. The beaches are beautiful and secluded towards the end of the hotel zone in Tulum. You can park at Mil Amores and walk into the preserve if you would like.

We did our TTD session at the public beach just down the road from the ruins. It was AMAZING!!

basically, we got to the ruins. Then instead of paying and going inside, we headed south down the road. you'll walk a little way and then there will be a few taxis (if you're lucky) they'll drive you just down the road for a small fee $3-5. We probably would have walked, but I was in my wedding dress and getting really hot!!

That beach has beautiful boats, the super soft white sand, BLUE water, and a fun little restaurant right on the beach. It's awesome!!

Hi everyone!!


I need help figuring out a great spot for TTD pics. I'm bringing another dress with me to get "dirty" in. My own photograher is in Houston as well and we're trying to find places. I love how the ruins at Tulum look over the sea but is it even possible to take TTD pics there?


I've seen tons of TTD pics by Del Sol & Elizabeth Medina - any brides who have used them - locations would be great!! I love the cenote area they keep using and those small ruins.

    • 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?
