      We've requested it, but we'll see what they say....
      LMAO! I was kinda being sarcastic, I didnt know it was even an option! I take it they have an area for this?? You will have to explain! Its actually a good idea, I think! So much more private and most likely a spectacular view! Who are you contacting now about details, Landy or Barcelo WC? Im unsure of who to ask my questions to. Ive just emailed Landy because Im guessing it all goes through her?

          BTW- did you new Barcelo brides see this on trip advisor?

          Barcelo Maya Palace Reviews - Traveler Reviews - A Dream Vacation - TripAdvisor

          The first few reviews are people who were supposed to go to DT but got bumped. THe first one was a guest of a wedding that got moved! Everyone seemed pretty pleased!!!!

            So in answer to our bit of discussion about how busy Nov is in the Mayan Riviera there is another thread that was just started and Paul Schrank who is a local videographer (including mine!) posted a great answer I think and he says that overall November isn't busy. Maybe it was just a coincidence then that we had so many DT November brides.

              I know we really haven't talked about the actual closure of the hotel in a while. Just in case someone's interested there is an article in yesterdays paper saying the judge denied DT's request to re-open. Doesn't say for how long only that the federal prosecutors are happy with the judges decision because it sends a good signal about their efforts to say the environment.
              I've already wrapped my head around the fact that I'm moving so I really don't care but I post this for you Dec and beyond brides.

                  ugh-I was holding out hope for it to be re-opened ASAP. One of my friends just returned from Mexico and texted me asking if I knew Dreams Tulum was closed...I was like, come on-OF COURSE I KNOW!!! It is all I think about!!!!!

                    My TA emailed me this morning and said she cant send any more new guests to Barcelo cus they are sold out? I have 2 more people in the process of booking last minute through Expedia that arent having a problem. Does anyone have any last minute guests coming? Have they been told Barcelo is sold out?

                      I still have a few last minute people, but I have not heard anything. The hotel is huge, like 750 rooms, that does not make sence.

                      Also, I found out why some of us can't go to Paradisus. Apparently, that hotel has a policy of one wedding per day. They are willing to break that policy under our circumstances, but only if the bride who is already scheduled for our day is willing to accept a second wedding on "her" day. Whoever is getting married on Nov 8 did not want a second wedding so that is why I was not allowed to go there. I heard several other brides from other dates did not want to be flexible either. I think it is just so mean of them and they suck. That is all I'm going to say.
