    I replied to Sandra's e-mail a few days ago, and she has yet to reply (which is to be expected...considering all the drama)

    about 50% of my guests book thru expedia. Incuding FH and I! We have yet to receive a phone call either. I hope they do get in touch with us soon though...

    Does any one know what our options are? besides Dreams Cancun? (not an option for us) and Secrets Silversands?

    any other resorts at this point in time Dreams Tulum has mentioned sending you and your wedding party?

    Dreams Cancun is super beautiful. And they put on great weddings. But I dont want to be staying in Cancun. The Mayan Riviera is were we want to stay. All our wedding related activities are in the Mayan. And we dont want to be surrounded by all the Cancun party goers... argh!

    THANKS LADIES!!!!! without this forum, I would be a disaster. Even though FH says I am regardless

    I wouldn't give up just yet! Her email talked about a plan B just in case we need it. They're hoping to reopen Nov. 1. But again that is their hope. I don't believe in dates. It's either going to happen or its not but I don't think it's right for them to give people definitive dates since each date so far has fallen through. The 6th, the 13th, the 31st. I don't buy any of those dates.
    From what I understand, the court ruling could be any day. Either today, next month or next year. What I would strongly advise is to create a back-up plan. That's what Sandra and I are working on.
    I know they are offering Dreams Cancun, Silversands and Barcelo Maya.
    Go on to their websites, look at their pictures and see which one fits you. And I do believe it's best to let them know what your preference is ASAP so they can start doing all the legwork in case its necessary.

    Remember why most of us picked a destination wedding? Easy, stress-free.
    Yeah, not for us DT brides!

      I'm right with you ladies...haven't heard much update except they are hoping for a Nov. 1 opening; yet that's been the 4th or so date they've updated too, so who knows...soon enough it could be they hope to open end of Dec. & we just can't all be left up in the air.

      So what are the options you ladies have been told that you can move to & they'll honor our prices? I've been given

      Dreams Cancun
      Barcelo Mayan Palace
      Iberostar Parisio (sp?)

      Does anyone have any opinions on these for us switching from DT? I heard the Barcelo's aren't that great except for this Mayan Palace one is only about a year old & really nice? Our TA would like us to decided TODAY, so I'd love input.

      Thanks,
      Laura

          I don't know anything about the Barcelo Maya other than its new and is connected to other resorts. I think there is a bride who got married there.
          Here's her review:

          I didn't know they were offering up Iberostar Paraiso. I need to start looking at that one.

          i'm just getting caught up on this and wanted to say to all you girls, have faith, be organized, and try not to stress! there is a reason and a plan for everything and your weddings will all end up beautiful no matter where they have to be.

          yes you planned a DW to be stress-free, so dont stress and just make sure you are taken care of. so, your menus dont match, your logo's dont work anymore, look at them as vintage! collectibles no longer available! just try to make the most of it and know that the most important part is you will soon be married to your soon-to-be hubby :) regardless, either way you will be on a fantastic vacation in an amazing country and you will have a crazy story to tell your future grandchildren :)

          hang in there girls! so many of you are so close!

            Maura, thanks! I think we've all got to consider it as an option so if you wouldn't mind having her take those pictures, that would be helpful! THANK YOU!

            amy, is there anything specific (a small list perhaps) of photos you all might want?

            if you guys can come up with a small list, i'll send it to her and ask her to get as many of them as she can while she's there.
