Hey ladies-It's official I'm getting married at Dreams Tulum on July 15th, 2010! I'm thinking about going on a site visit to elevate some of my wedding jitters. Did anyone else do this? If so what kind of things do I do while I'm there and how long did you stay? Most importantly, did you get to stay at the resort for free? I've heard many resorts offer free nights to brides-to-be so they can check out the resort beforehand. Am I totally being crazy or should I ask my wedding coordinator? Any advice would be great. Thanks guys!monkey.gif

Most resorts have a special site visit rate. I would suggest you do a trial hair/make-up run. Have the coordinator set up a table for you like she would at the reception. Have a sample dinner. If possible, use the same ground transportation. Maybe try a few of the activities you might has as excursions. If you are using a dj or any vendors. Try to meet with them and get a feel for what they are like.

 

Good luck! You are going to love Tulum.

Jayanreneewed,

 

Congrats!!! I am to be married at Dreams Tulum on May7, 2010. I am leaving on October 1 to do a site visit. I have an appointment scheduled with our cordinator, Aurora, on October 2. My goal is to go over locations for the ceremony and reception, look at flower and cake options and some decor options. I also just want to get a general feel for the place, as I have never been there. I hear that alot of details end up being decided last minute so I don't expect to walk away with everything set in stone. Doing this site visit certainly makes me feel better about everything though. I'll let you know how it goes if you want....

If you have everything set up ahead of time, you only need two days, as long as you want to just bang everything out. If you want to turn it into a vacation, add as much time as you see fit.

 

How confident are you in your venue? If you know that you are set on your venue, I would wait until about two months before your wedding. Mexico is the kind of place that it's best to wait until the last minute to coordinate the details because you never know what is going to change. That also gives you plenty of time to work out a list of all the types of vendors you will need and the questions that you need answered.

I am going 6.5 months in advance.... you are offered a 100% refund on your deposit if cancelled at least 6 months out. I have never been to this resort o if I go and hate it, I'm not out my $500. Also, I have the option of hopping in a taxi to check out other places. I know that I won't really be able to plan all the details... like Malisa said, things do happen more last minute in Mexico. I just want to verify I made a good choice of resort.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
