Dreams Tulum wedding review

My wedding review

The wedding planner at the resort: One week before I left to Mexico, she asked me to complete some forms concerning my wedding. I took the basic wedding package and added a few thing. Most of all the extras that I asked for, I did not get... You would think that since you pay more, you would get the extras ! In other words, I didn't get the white bows on my chairs, the flower arrangements on the ceremony table as well as the flower arrangement on my weding table for the reception. The next day, I wrote a letter to her telling her what she forgeot to do (we had a meeting 2 days prior to the wedding + she received the forms she asked me to fill a week before/ all of this was said and written a few times!!!). 3 days later, her assistant called me since the wedding planner was on vacation now. There was nothing she could do for me and told me: "we will not charge you for the extras" DAHHHHH ! Why would I pay for something I didn't get ? The only thing the resort offered me was a free upgrade the next time I would go there.

There was 2 chairs on the beach close to the wedding gazebo and my mother in law told the wedding coordinator to ask them to move them so the pictures + video would not have them in them. She said she would take care of it...guess what, she didn't! Everyone was busy + stressed and once I was about to walk down the aisle, that is whem my mother in law noticed the chairs were still there. it was too late now. At this point, that is when I noticed there was no bows on the chairs, the flowers on the table + two long chairs next to the gazebo.

We had our meal at Portofino (in the wine cellar). The food was amazing but they were serving us pretty fast! Was it because the 4 kids were noisy and having fun ? I do not know ! But by 9:45, we were done and I was so tired that this didn't bother me at all !

The photographer, Elizabeth Medina, AMAZING ! She was very ponctual and even called me at the spa to tell me she arrived. A nice gesture to take away some stress! At 2:40 (my wedding was at 3!), the sky was dark grey and it started to rain...alot ! As she was taking pictures of me, she was also calming my nerves about the weather and guess what... at 3:15, my wedding started WITHOUT A TRACE OF RAIN !! She also took the time to read all the group pictures I wanted and we did them all thanks to her. For those who are not married, I suggest to do this since once the moment arrives, you might forget some pictures you wanted !

The next day, we arranged a TTD with the horses and water and I asked my brother to film it since Elizabeth was taking pictures. For some reasons, he prefered taking pictures rather than filming ( I told him 3 times to stop taking pictures and to film ! ! !) He was to take pictures of the ranch + horses only, not us since that is the reason why we asked Elizabeth to to that! So, I have a short 12 minutes video... and a few pictures, but I know that the ones taken by Elizabeth will be so much better ! For now, I get to look at my brothers pictures while I wait for Elizabeth's pictures; this kinda helps the wait ! ! 10 days after my wedding, she sent me 2 teaser pictures. WOW ! They are amazing and I can't wait to see the rest, especially the ones with the horses! Marc was so affraid of his horse (he didn't know how to control him) ! ! !

The resort: FANTASTIC ! We waited for about 10 minutes for the restaurants and when it was all of us (15 people) we only waited for 25-40 minutes. The food is amazing, the resort is so pretty and the staff is amazing (beside the wedding planner lack of things). The shows at night are great and the kid's club is amazing ! I recommend this resort to everyone!

pm me if you need more info!

Sorry to hear that your WC sucked it up! I'm sure the future brides will be thankful for your honesty though. I'm also sure that your guests didn't notice the things that were missing :)

Thanks for the review, Annie. I'm assuming it was Sandra and Landy that were problematic for you? Ugh. that's disappointing. I'm sorry to hear that. But from your pictures on the other thread, it looked beautiful.

Sorry to hear about SAndra and Landy not taking care of you! We've always heard great things about them. Maybe it's because Sandra was focused on going on vacationhuh.gif I'm glad you didn't let it ruin your day and that you loved the resort. That makes me excited for my trip/wedding in June. I can't wait to see pics!!

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
