Thank you,

I figure a late reply is better than no reply. November for us was a wonderful time to get married. We had beautiful weather almost every day. The day of the wedding there were some ominous clouds in the sky several hours before the ceremony, but like every other day, they cleared out by afternoon. It did rain one afternoon while we were there but we had been ensconced in the spa all afternoon so it did not affect us.

Sandra and Landy were always busy around the property preparing one wedding or another. We were supposed to get a written contract to sign before the wedding but we never did get that. We also did not have flowers on the ceremony table like we were supposed to have in the Ultimate Package; and my husband was upset that he track Sandra down to get his boutonniere before the ceremony. I had given her the room number after she delivered my bouquet but she never made it to the next building? It was also hard to meet up with Sandra to actually pay for the wedding package. That worked out in our favor since it then went on the next credit card cycle. On the plus side, my bouquet was beeeeeautiful. I showed Sandra a picture of a bouquet I loved because of its bright colors and told her that I wanted something bright like that. Nothing in the flower brochure was really what I wanted. The result captured the spirit and the intent. We were also not charged for some extra boutonieres and instead of the included photography package, received extra video time. Unfortunately, even though Sandra assured us we could get the actual footage of the wedding, that never arrived (even though we gave her the address, typed, twice.) We only have the DVD and although it's pretty good, some of the things the videographer did were rather cheesy.

You will be perfectly happy if you are not too picky on how you want things done and resist the urge to micro-manage. And also, do plan on a flexible time line. Our wedding gazebo/trellis didn't get set up until the time of the ceremony, so obviously, we didn't start on time. Overall things were beautiful. Don't sweat the small stuff. :)

Dreams Tulum actually need more staff for the wedddings, that is why some brides are dissappointed at one time of the other during their wedding day...

 

But witht he new convention center, I am sure they will hire more staff to coordinnate the weddings

Your explanation is great and you would think it would clarify everything...but... I still have a question about the banquet facilities there now. Do they do all the rehersal/welcome dinners there as well. We will have about 20-25 people there so will we have to book the rooms for all the nights that we want to have a joint dinner set up. How does the food work for that then? Thanks a lot monkey.gif

I'm having my welcome dinner in the World Cafe (the buffet restaurant). Sandra told me there was no additional charge and they have two side rooms which they will section off for you if you want to do it there. I know it's not as formal as a sit down dinner but I didn't want to pay any extra $$$. Plus you can always had some table decorations/centerpieces to make it a little more formal.

Do you know how many people they allow for this?
