Needless to say, I don't deal with Lizette anymore and I got my sunset wedding time!
Now I'm worried about photo's (being that my wedding time is sunset), but then I learned about the "Trash the Dress" photo-shoot! Please excuse me as I'm new to all this and have never heard of that before!
oh man! now i am totally regreting not playing hardball. I just didn't want to make her mad and black list me. It was difficult to get a straight answer out of her and I got off the phone feeling like there was more availability than I uncovered for times, etc. The phone conversation was hurried and I could tell she just wanted me off the phone. We really wanted to get married the weekend after if we couldn't find a date in April. Now we have to get married 2 days before my FH's birthday! That's the one thing he said he didn't want to do. He's fine with it if it's the only date available near our timeframe, but when we first started planning, that was his one request...not to have the wedding on his birthday weekend! ugh. maybe I should call back. I really want it the following weekend, but I sent in my credit card authorization this morning....huh.gif

I got married April 1 and had no trouble getting that day with only 3 months notice. The last week of March and first week of April were very open. When I got there Landy told me busy season started early/mid April. So you may want to try very early April. But avoid Easter (not sure when it falls next year...) because travel will be expensive and the resort will be full.
Thanks for the headsup. I think I am stuck with the March 20th date now. I really wanted the weekend after or some time in April, but they were full for friday or saturday weddings during that timeframe. She said May is closed and all of the weekends in April are as well. There was only one Thursday in April available, but I'm sure mon-wed has some openings. Anyway, I wonder if some of the spots she's holding do not have deposits down. ?? My FH's birthday is two days after our date...which he really didn't want. Well, either way, we are stuck with late March....so...how was the weather when you were therehuh.gif How about the crowd? Did it feel like you were on top of each other, or is the resort pretty seperated? I wanted a smaller more relaxed place, but I'm not sure if I want to be running into everyone I know the whole time I'm there. I love my down time on the beach with a pina colada!!

You should come introduce yourself in the Dreams Tulum thread (in the Mayan Riviera sub-forum). And if you are doing a sunset ceremony I would suggest doing as much pics as possible before the ceremony (if you don't want to see your husband before, at least do photos with family and bridal parties individually).

It was not overly crowded the last week of March / first week of April, but it definitely wasn't dead either.

It's easy enough to find your crowd on the beach if you are looking, but not overly easy either, sometimes it took me a several walks up and down the beach to find them. So I'd say it's in the middle on that respect. Definitely not like a huge massive resort complexe (like the Bahia, one of my other choices) where it would be almost impossible to find anyone.
