      Really helpful review - thanks! (and i echo that your pics are gorgeous!). Question - did you get the impression that they would have honored your requests had you known, ie setting up an actual bar and actually passing the hor d'oeurves during the cocktail hour? Just curious if it would be a battle...

            I think they will do anything you ask them to do, but there may be an additional charge.

              I got married at Dreams Tulum in November. We had our cocktail hour in Portofino before it opened for the evening (between 5 & 6pm). They had a bartender there for us & servers wandered around passing out our hors d'oeuvres. This wasn't something that we discussed with Sandra or Landy and we didn't have to pay extra either. I would say that if you are concerned about it, bring it up with Sandra & Landy.

              Ask how the bar is set up & if they provide servers for the cocktail hour.

                Thanks for the review. And I am glad that you had an overall good experience.

                Looks like you had the same judge that we did for the ceremony! We absolutely loved that guy and still talk about him.

                  Wonderful Review! I'm sorry your cocktail hour disappointed you. Were there other weddings that day? It seems like DT just don't have enough staff to effectively manage multiple weddings. We were married at the same spot you guys were. Thanks again for the great review.

                    Great review! Don't know how I missed it before. Thanks for sharing, now for some questions...
                    Would you have chosen the to have your ceremony in the chapel, now knowing that the sun would make for bad pictures?
                    I just bought parasols but would that be enough to keep the from squinting?

                    Was your cake the basic cake or an upgrade? I think it looks great with the ribbon, is that something you brought or did they provide it?

                    TIA
