Q about Receptions at Dream Tulum

Recommended Posts

Oh ! and don't forget, there are many weddings at Dreams Tulum and Sandra really works long hours. It often take a few days for her to reply back !

 

Most people that I e-mailed wrote to me that it's pointless to plan exactly what you want now because once you get there and look around, you might change your plans ! Once you get to the resort, she will meet with you and tell you everything an give you the catalogue of things to choose (flowers, gazebo deco, meal, restaurant, music...).

 

Also, since I will be getting married there in December, I will write you every little details of my wedding + post some pictures. That should also help you.

Annie- thanks for all the info. Sandra usually replys within a few days, but it has been a few weeks. I'm not worried b/c I know she is VERY busy with weddings and I have a few mths. Can't wait to read your review when you get back!

For contacting Sandra............

1. She is outrageously overworked and never seems to have enough hours in the day to get everything done. So, sometimes she does need a while to get back to people.

2. When I started emailing her I was not getting any responses. It turned out that because I was using AOL the replies she was sending were not getting through. Maybe try using a generic service like Yahoo or Gmail.

3. Calling her is another option. If she is not available to talk, her assistant Landy usually is.

 

I can't really help with the reception questions though as it was just Karen and I there with no guests for the wedding.

Thank you SO much for those pictures. We've only just begun any type of planning, but have decided on Dreams as our resort of choice. It looks amazing. What does everyone do for traveling guests.....meaning travel agents, group rates for hotels?

Also, anyone ever heard of delsol photography? Or have any other suggestionshuh.gif

Hi Trisha,

 

It's really up to you what you want to do for your guests. If you think you might book 10 rooms or more, you may want to get with a travel agent to facilitate things and get a room block. Don't forget to confirm with Sandra your wedding date so that she puts you down in the book. Del Sol photography: It so happens that Matt Adcock and Sol Tamargo are members of this forum and they both do excellent work.

 

Happy Planning!

I also got married at Dreams with 30 guests. I had my reception in a private room at Portofino and it was great. There was no music although we had discussed it before my wedding day. That's the only thing I was really disappointed about.

I only paid for the silver package, and it is $19 pp after the first 20 pp, I think, but they don't really count that closely. I wasn't billed for as many people as I had. In fact, my total was just under $2K, which is remarkable for such a (in my opinion) beautiful wedding and reception.

 

I did attend a dinner on the beach, and sand in the food wasn't a problem. The other thing I was afraid of, which was it being too hot in July, wasn't really either, because of the nice breeze. I had a few seniors as guests, though, and I didn't want to chance not having a/c for them. So, if you think your guests will be comfortable, I would def. recommend the beach reception setting (so pretty), but if you have seniors, I might would go with Portofino (private room).

 

The thing about choosing everything once you get there is really right on. I had all kinds of ideas about flowers and decorations, and Sandra just handed me a book, I picked out my decorations and cake, and it all turned out great.

 

Let me know if you have any questions.

    • 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.
