Maybe my drinks are included because our reception is at the seaside grill and the pool bar is right next to it.
I remember other people saying they had to pay (maybe it was chibi), something like 10$ per person per hour or two hours or something like that. But yeah, in your case just have them go to the pool bar. It's all inclusive, they can't stop you from doing that! It's litterally two steps outside the seaside grill.

Does anyone else know about the potential cost of alcoholic beverages for a reception in the ballroom? Personally, I'm not too thrilled with the idea that we'd have to pay for drinks at an all-inclusive resort. If it's the case, I might re-think our reception location...

 

Thanks for any help anyone can provide! It's much appreciated.

From what I understand and have read so far, drinks are included with your dinner. But if you are extending your dinner past the 3 hrs allotted for it, and want to be served drinks then you have to pay extra.

Hmmm, we will definitely have more than 20 people and we'd like to extend our reception past 3 hours. It looks like we'll need to do some more research! I'm finding it really hard to stay on budget. There's so many little extras that add up here and there, and I'm struggling with having the wedding of my dreams and making little sacrifices here and there in order to be financially responsible!

 

Thanks for the information guys! confused.gif

I know it can seem like extra things keep adding up. But I've found DT to be one of the most reasonable in terms of nickel and diming us. I seriously considered two other resorts but had to do away with them because they literally charged you for EVERYTHING!!!

I got married at Dreams Tulum on June 23rd and it was amazing!!!

 

Once you get there, it becomes really easy what you need/want to do. We scheduled our meeting with the wedding coordinator when we arrived. We told her what we wanted and if she couldn't answer our question she looked into it for us. We ended up meeting with her 3 times before our wedding...we arrived Thursday afternoon meet with her and went over all the details. We meet with her again on Friday to have 2 of our witnesses sign paperwork (it was their anniversary the day before so they had a romantic dinner planned) and to pay our balance.

 

We also arranged a Welcome Party in the ballroom for Saturday night. It was so easy to set up!!! Told her we just wanted to have a dinner with our family and friends and to have a sound system we could plug our ipod into. Well I pretty much left it at that, she told us where to go and when we got there the tables were all set up and people were serving our guests drinks. It seriously was so simple! And the wedding coordinator came by just to make sure everything was ok.

 

We meet again with the coordinator Monday morning (day of the wedding, we got married at 5pm) and gave her all of our decorations...we had name place cards (with who was going to sit at a table together), decoration for the tables, favors on the tables, a monogram letter for our cake (I just gave it to her and told her I wanted it on the cake). And to my amazement...everything was all done when I showed up! I couldn't believe it! It was so easy!!!

 

AND just to let you guys know...I'm very anal, plan like a manic and can be controlling (my husband would acknowledge that!). After a couple days in Mexico and hanging out with you family and friends you will naturally relax more...so whatever happens, happens.

 

We brought our own photographers...we have 2 amazing photographers in our areas so they gave me a great rate and I paid to fly them out there. The best investment!!! My photographers were amazing!!!

 

Other things that were really easy and helpful...

 

*she asked what kinda of seating I wanted...how many people at a table then how many tables I wanted.

 

*since we didn't need to have photography in our package (Dreams of Love) we asked to if we could have that offer for our Welcome Party. I forgot to confirm beforehand and I showed up to the Welcome Party and the photographer was there and we got 36 free photos!

 

*I gave her a big bag full of stuff for our decoration, went over everything with her when I gave it to her and she made it happen!

 

So...to sum up my experience...

Brides...RELAX!!!

Once you get there you can negotiate, figure out what you want, tell them what you want and they really do try and make it happen and tell you want is and not possible. I was really impressed how on top of it the wedding coordinators are. And this is from someone who plans and likes to be able to control everything.

 

This is your wedding and you are doing a destination to release A LOT of the stress from local weddings. So relax and enjoy. NO MATTER WHAT...it will be beautiful and you and your guests are on vacation.

 

 

The one thing I would have done different, and I'm totally serious!, I would have had my ceremony at 3pm instead of 5pm. IT WENT BY WAY TO FAST!!! I wish I had more time in the day to enjoy the happiness and being in my dress (which I felt absolutely beautiful in!!).

 

Don't worry about the heat (I got married in June!)...you get use to it after being there for 3-4 days and your mind is else where (you are in the moment, not thinking about heat). I did have turquoise parasols for people to use for the sun also...it was also part of my decoration.

 

Believe me...it will be amazing and beautiful. Who else do you know can show wedding pictures with you, your husband, family and friends on the beach with beautiful turquoise water behind you!!!

 

Since I don't know how to post photos...here is a website of my photographers blog. It has about 5 of our 'Trash the Dress' session pictures on it. We did that session the day after the wedding (right before we left for our honeymoon resort). We are the only destination wedding our photographers have done.

I was just wondering if anyone could donate me some points? Or just send me a private message? Like many others I don't have enough points to look at all the good stuff on here!! I would love it if one of you could help a girl out!! I really would like to see the package prices for 2009 and the flower choices. I am trying to decide if I want the free wedding and just pay for the extra things I want or go ahead and just book an upgraded package! Thanks for all of your help.

I gave you some, don't know if it's enough. Also just wanted to say that you can always change your mind about the package at the last minute - obviously it's helpful to decide ahead of time for your own planning purposes, but if you decide to change it the day you meet with Landy she will let you.


Thanks Saajn for the review! I added it to our list of brides & reviews: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t14762. Do you have any more pictures? On the link you gave there were only 5. I'd love to see more and I'm sure upcoming brides would love to see photos of your set-up and stuff like that.
