    Alright ladies, the reservation department at Privilege just sent me the price rates and the reservation form, and the prices are not bad at all! Thanks for calming me down!

    I would really appreciate any first-hand descriptions/pictures of the place when you guys get back, Willeme & Jennifer!

      Hey Tina,
      I’m glad they sent you the proposal. My travel agent and I received answers to our questions on Thursday of this past week and went through everything on Friday. If you have questions, let me know. Some of the items were a little confusing.

      You are welcome to email me separately or we can ever talk by phone, if that would be helpful. My email address is rachellchrist@gmail.com.

      If you would like me to talk a look at your contract to make sure they included a few pertinent items and disclaimers, I am happy too. I’m having them add a few things to mine before I sign.

      I’m glad you were pleased. They seem great to work with. Do you know if Elba will be the wedding coordinator or will there be someone else outside of their sales department? I have some menus I can send you as well, if you don’t already have them.

        Hi Rachel, I just emailed you a copy of the reservation form that I got so if you could see if it's missing anything I would be sooo appreciative!!

        Elba told me she's the wedding coordinator, but she may have helpers, etc. I think they work with Sundreamers Wedding quite a bit because they plan to use Sabina as the officiator (although we're bringing our own so won't need her)

          Hey Ladies,
          I just found out about Privilege today and i'm super excited!!! Until a few hours ago our plan was to get married at Dreams Tulum but the hotel rates are CRAZY - $175 PP/PN - this would be too much to ask of our guests!!! If any of you have received price lists for additional wedding services would you mind sharing them with me? (sheenjamin@gmail.com) Does any one know how private the beach ceremony is? Are there sunbathers watching your ceremony?

          Thanks so much!

            Hi Sheena, I don't have too many details right now; I think Elba's very busy and we haven't firmed anything up.

            I just got the pricing information for the wedding package without a minister ($1,610). The wedding package seems to include a lot, including chairs for 20, a cake, flowers/decorations for the aisle, etc. I was quoted additional chairs at $3 pp, and $35 pp for the reception menu if the group is not all-inclusive; the $35 includes alcohol and other beverages. Hope this helps!

            Oh yeah, I don't know how private it will be since technically all beaches in Mexico are public, and Privilege Aluxes is in the very popular Playa Norte beach area, but Elba said that folks tend to respect weddings and are discreet. Let's hope so, I don't want speedos or overly tanned women in my wedding photos!!

                Wow, Sheena, thanks for the info! If you don't mind, I have a couple of questions:

                1. I'm assuming the $15 pp cocktail hour is just for the non-inclusive crowd? I thought the drinks and stuff were included with the $35 dinner fee?

                2. Do you know how long the fire dancer show is?

                3. What is the deluxe set up ceremony??

                  1. thats a good question, i'm not sure - i'll ask elba, my understanding was that the $35 dinner fee was just for dinner and drinks ($10-$15 if all inclusive)
                  2. the show is 20 minutes
                  3. deluxe setup - chairs with cover, bow and flower corsage hanging on the back

                  Also if you want tiffany chairs its about $15 per chair

                  What room rates did you get, i want to make sure i'm getting the best deal possible :)

                      Hi Sheena! How many people are in your party? That may affect the prices we're quoted
