    I'm impressed that your review is quite objectively critical. Most brides just say everything was perfect, and that's not always helpful (although it soothes our nerves) because we don't know what to watch out for and what to try to improve.

    I'm not doing a rehersal since we are only 9 people, but based on what you say I will give everybody instructions on where they should be.

      Hey ladies,
      We are considering getting married at dreams tulum. what kind of deals are you getting for your guests. We're using a travel agent but I feel like she's showing us all the most expensive resorts. We really loved Azul Beach resort but it's $250 per person per night. We're planning for a December 2008 wedding. If anyone has a ballpark price per night, i'd love to hear it. Thanks a ton!

          Hey Laura
          Did they provide everything for the backdrop of your ceremony (the tent etc) and did you have several options on what you could choose from? I absolutely loved it btw!!! In general, do most resorts provide that?? Thanks for your help!

            Thank you for the review. I am getting married at Dreams Tulum on October 27th and this definitely helps me with the planning....

            I am wondering if there is a specific location where the ceremony can be held that will not blind the couple?

            Good to know about the cocktail hour, I am going to ask Landy if she can set up some sort of actual bar area so guests can walk up and order drinks.

            It seems like a lot of people did not do an actual reception at the wedding is this so? I have about 30-40 guests coming to ours so is it a large enough crowd for a dancing reception?3.

            Laura, your pictures are beautiful!

              Are you getting to Dreams a few days before the ceremony? I recommend going to the two spots (one by Seaside Grill and the other by El Patio) around the time of your ceremony and seeing which is better. If I had it to do over again, I would've chosed the area by Seaside Grill, it's more private. It's on the opposite side of the beach so I would guess the sun would be a little better there, too. Let me know if you have anymore questions. Good luck with everything! :)

                  Thanks for the great review!

                  When you planned your reception dinner were you given the option of a "platinum menu"? Sandra the group sales manager spoke of an upgraded menu due to our signing a rooms contract but the wording is really strange.

                  Did you upgrade to the lobster or stick with the shrimp and steak? Thanks and you really look stunning!

                    Thank you. :) I believe the platinum is the steak and shrimp, which is what we had. Lobster was an extra $20 or $25 per person, from what I remember. We didn't think it was worth it so we stuck with the shrimp and it was awesome. Everyone loved it.

                      Hello and Congratulations!
                      I have just reserved a date at Dreams Tulum for July 31, 2009 and am excited, or should I say was a more excited before I read your review. It sounds like you enjoyed yourself but that there were a lot of unexpected things that didn't go at all as planned. So basically I am taking every advice that you gave and writing it down to make sure I do those things.
                      I noticed that you loved your photographer...where did you find him and was it extremely pricey getting him there and paying for the services (if you don't mind me asking).

                      I am excited to hear back from you and have someone to get advice from. Thanks!

                      Shannon
