LADIES.......smile41.gif

 

Ok, so I love DC, & I think it's probably one of the most beautiful resorts in Cancun, however, I'm having second thoughts about marrying there for a few personal reasons. Can you girls please help me. I initially wanted to get married @ DT, but was very concerned w/ my guests enjoying themselves, so this is why I had chosen DC. However, I really want a DT wedding.

I understand it is not as much of a "party-spot" as DC, but at least I'll have what I wanted. At this point I'm begging for advice. I want my guests to have fun, but I don't want to neglect my wishes either you know. Anyway, please...please...please help me decide dizzy.gif. Sorry for the long list of questions but I really need to know anything there is to know about DT. Thanks girls :)

 

*How are you girls going about entertainment for your guests?

*What TA are you girls using?

*Does their packages include a Mariachi band?

*Does anyone know how close DT is to EDR?

*What are the options for ceremony, and reception sites?

*I would love to see pics, if you can find the time to share.

*I heard DT is about two hours away from the airport, how are your

guests getting from the airport to the resort?

*What activities does Tulum offer?

*Are any of you ladies honeymooning @ EDR?

I think you should go with the place you really want. Your guests will enjoy themselves regardless of where they are.

I am not worrying too much about entertainment for my guest at DT. From other posts here I've heard they have nightly entertainment and there is a disco on the property as well and that should be enough for my group. I may add live music like a mariachi or guitarist for just the ceremony but other than that I think my guests will have a good time just being on the beach and spending time together.

I chose DT because of the beautiful beach and the ruins near by and I would hate to compromise my vision of my wedding in order to please everyone in our group. Remember you can't make everying happy all the time, my view is go with what your heart wants and those around you will follow your lead in enjoying themselves. But if you are not happy on your day because you wanted it someplace else, then your guests will be able to tell and not enjoy themselves as much.

To answer some of your questions:

I'm going with Tammy(host) as my TA and so far I would recommend her and I think she arranges transfers from the airport to the resort.

Since I am pretty frugal, I'm going with the smallest package because it is complementary when booking a certain # rooms/nights.

Ceremony sites include beach and very cute chapel, but there may be other sites around the resort. I would do a search for Tulum on this site and read other posts. There is one with pdf attachments of DT's packages. Also, try TripAdvisor.com for pictures and reviews from actual people who have been to DT.

Sorry don't know anything about EDR. Good luck and follow your heart and everything will turn out just fine.

thanks for the referral wink.gif i actually meant to post that dreams tulum is having a sale and most dates are in the $220-230 per night range for double occupanyc so it is a good time to book or try to block rooms at this rate.

I am working on a room block now at Dreams tulum for 2008 and we are getting rates as low as $109 per person (double occupancy).

*How are you girls going about entertainment for your guests?

As far as entertainment for the reception, we plan to rent the IPOD speaker system and have a lot of music for dancing and such. Once it gets later and we have to turn it off (10 or 11 I think), we plan to head to the disco.

As far as entertain during the week, we plan to organize a few excursions that are optional for our guests. We are thinking about a fishing trip for the guys while the girls go to PDC shopping for the day. I am also thinking of possibly doing a day at Xel-ha or something similar.

 

*What TA are you girls using?

I used a local TA but am kinda wishing I used Tami who has more experience with DW's. We ended up booking through Apple Vacations.

 

*Does their packages include a Mariachi band?

We are booking the Ultimate Wedding package which includes a Mexican Trio.

 

*Does anyone know how close DT is to EDR?

I believe it is approx 30 mins or so but I may be wrong.

 

*What are the options for ceremony, and reception sites?

You can have your wedding in the gazebo, in the chapel, or on the beach. I am not sure but you may also be able to have your ceremony at other locations such as the grand staircase near the lobby.

 

*I would love to see pics, if you can find the time to share.

I will post everything I have asap.

 

*I heard DT is about two hours away from the airport, how are your

guests getting from the airport to the resort?

We booked our trip through Apple Vacations, which includes R/T transportation.

 

*What activities does Tulum offer?

They offer:

Daily Activities

Theme dinners

Weekly beach party

Tennis

Bicycles

Ping-pong

Catamarans

Diving clinic

Table games

Soccer

Bocce ball

Bike tour to Tulum

Sailing

Windsurfing

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
