      You can get an amazing sense of all the pictures of the resort, our room (the honeymoon suite) cocktail hour, ceremony, reception, trip to the ruins as well as our trip on the Mayan Adventure. You can also get a sense of WHAT AN AMAZING TIME we all had...maybe a little too much fun:)) I figure this is easier than posting them seperately.

      I'll hopefully get to my review early this week!!

        Ida ~ Thanks for the encouragement ... and I'm so glad the weather held out for you. It's so sporadic right now that I'm holding out hope (in between a couple of moments of tears LOL). Right as we were finishing dinner it starting pouring again ... lightening ... it's just a mess. Everything is flooding ... the hallways ... the disco had inches of standing water this morning ... *sigh* ... I don't want to complain or be negative ... and to do over again ... I would still book DT ... what can you do about weather?!

        As I've mentioned ... the people here are amazing! This morning I was asking about getting our group into town (Tulum) for some shopping and there was very loud thunder crackling and I just started crying! We have had everything planned out and we were to go to the ruins this morning and it was just not going to happen. The concierge was so sweet ... she assured me that they would do everything they could to give me the wedding of my dreams ... and asked what they could do right then to help me be happy. I told here I was so happy with DT ... just sad about the hard work and money to get here and the weather was upsetting me. She said what can I get you? She called someone to get my kids .. took them to the tables in the lobby and got them started on a game. I half jokingly told her maybe a shot of tequilla and she called and brought me a shot ... and the bartender remembered me and also brought a vodka diet coke (my drink) ... this is typical of the service I've had ... they remember you and your drinks and such ... it's just so impressive! I cried and laughed ... enjoyed my drinks ... stopped crying ... played with my kids for a few minutes ... went and got the rest of my group and went to town for some shopping. Yes, it rained ... but we didn't care.

        This evening on the way to dinner ... Ken's youngest (Cobey age 7) ran ahead and got in the elevator ... he got stuck in the elevator! We could hear him crying and he could hear us talking to him but no electronics would work. Ken called and within a couple of minutes a crew of 3 or 4 guys came and got him out.

        We met my sister and her husband at SSG for dinner and part way through the dinner a gentleman came and asked me if I was Mrs. "Soon to be Married Name" ... and I said yes. He said I'm the manager this weekend and I heard your son was stuck in the elevator and I want to make sure he's OK and see if there's anything we can do for you or your family. We still have NO IDEA how he knew who we were or how he found us for dinner (my sister got the table and used HER room number). Again, I'm so impressed! They really do go above and beyond!

        This evening I asked a couple if they wanted me to take a picture of them near the dolphin pool ... turns out it was dbutte55 from the forum! They were just married on Passion Island and she and I had emailed back and forth a few months ago ... I can't believe what a coincidence that was and it was so nice to run into someone I "knew!"

        I am very upset about the weather ... but it is in no way a reflection of how I feel about DT. It's so nice here!

        Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers for the weather! It means the world to me ... I'm trying so hard to stay upbeat and the support is so important to me. Thanks a million! *huGs* Suzanne

        P.S. Sunbride ... thanks for the great idea about SSG ... I have my meeting with Landy in the morning and I'll mention all options and backup plans so I feel a little more calm.

        P.S.S. Lonna ... thanks for posting the great pics! Made me smile! And it's so fun to actually know where everything is now Everything was just beautiful and you looked gorgeous!

          Lonna, was your reception by the Dolphin pool? I never saw pics from that angle, I think now I love that location even more than the beach!!!

            wahmsuzanne: I am so sorry that the weather turned so bad. We left yesterday (Sunday) and woke up to those storms...I am glad we were on the second floor, because the first floors were flooded. We went to get a quick breakfast to find that they world cafe no longer had a roof. I am sure it will get better :)

            I got married on Tuesday right after Lindsey I assume. It was perfect, I LOVE Anabel!

                  Hi Ladies,

                  I'm planning on having the reception on the beach or by the dolphin pool. I've seen many women on the site using lanterns. Do you actually need this or does the hotel provide lighting? Just wondering if I need to budget for this.

                  Thanks

                    Thanks! That means so much to me ... the weather has been "better" so I'm doing much better too.

                    Yesterday I was in the spa booking some things and I saw (and briefly met) Chantel and she looked absolutely gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was so excited and happy for her ... Ken and I walked out of the spa and within a minute it started pouring again. My emotions are on such a rollercoaster ride I can't stand it. I believe it stopped in time for her ceremony so I hope it was wonderful for her.

                    I am usually pretty calm and Ken is the high strung one and I have just been so up and down I can't stand it! I've been drinking like crazy to deal with it and that definitely helps LOL

                    I am up and getting everything ready for my big day and I'll just be praying about the weather. Girls' hair at 11:00 and mine at 12:00 then get ready and keep praying.

                    Landy is awesome! She's been very nice (as have all of the WCs I've managed to introduce myself to) and seems very organized. She wants me to decide if I'd like my outdoor choice (dolphin pool) or my inside backup plan - by 3:00 ... that is so difficult because the weather can change hourly here. If I go with outdoor and we get rained out she said we will just have dinner in a restaurant without any decor. If I take the indoor choice (SSG - covered) ... no music. *sigh* We'll see what happens *huGs* Suzanne

                    P.S. Also met Rebecca and George and we will be using their chineese lanterns tonight - soooooo nice of them - I can't believe it! Their reception was on the beach and it looked so pretty. They had 4 towers with colored lights in them that they used to string the lanterns ... some ladies I met said it was so pretty they thought it was a "beach bar" and they went over looking for a drink LOL. It is a comfort to me to see/meet other gals from the forum

                      You don't need the lanterns, people just use them as decorations. The resort has some huge floodlights near the restaurants which they turn towards the pool or beach if you are having are having a reception there and require lighting. Somebody posted a picture of them at one point because several people were asking about it, but I don't know where that pic is now.
