    Wow Amy everything looks beautiful and seems like you had a wonderful time! CONGRATULATIONS

    With all of the stress and drama in regards to the DT closure, I am so glad that you walked away happy.
    Congratulations again Amy and thanks for posting such a detailed review.

    Quick question, is the last photo of your ceremony your wedding bouquet? I'm interested seeing how your flowers turned out considering all the issues that Karla had.

      Amy I am so excited about your review! It sounds like you had an amazing time.
      We are also having DJ Mannia and every review of him makes me more and more excited. When you did your site visit last year did you discuss everything you wanted with Landy? I really loved your set-up and I kind of want to see if we can do the same.
      Congrats again

            THANKS RACHEL!!

            No, the last photo of the ceremony was the centerpiece that was on the ceremony table for the ceremony. i think it may be what they used as the centerpieces for the reception as well. I dont have a shot of my bouqet straight on yet but will post one when I get one. And i'm sure Citali will have one once she sends it to me. In the meantime, you can kind of see it in this pic of me and MOH. I was very happy with the flowers.

              Congrats Amy sounds like a awesome time! I am interested in the catamaran how long was the cruise for and what time did it leave. Sounds like a great time the cruise leaves out of Cancun right.

                We met with Sandra when we did the site visit and we had literally just (barely) decided on DT so it was more of a Q&A and scoping the place out. We really didn't discuss everything we wanted at that point. That evolved over time through email and then finalized when I got there. The one thing we did finalize was the location of the ceremony and reception- beach by seaside grill and that nobody else would be at the seaside that night. As i said we ended up moving to the Seaside from the beach for the reception so that worked either way!

                As for the set up, I brought a spool of white and turqouise tulle with me. We decided not to bring down star-fish etc and I was fine with the way it looked! I personally liked the colored flowers vs. white on the aisle runners, etc and preferred not to have flowers on the gazebo. We liked the flowy look. Maybe would have looked better with chiffon vs. tulle but it was nice still. Let me know if you have any more questions!

                  It was a 3 hour sunset cruise and it left out of Puerto Adventuras- so only about 30 minutes away. They took us in huge (and nice) greyhound type bus. It flew by although in retrospect we should have brought some cans of beer with us! On the way home we took the CDs we brought for the boat and put them on so the party continued! They also do a snorkelling daytime cruise which looked fun but we wanted to maximize the number of people who could come.

                  In Dec the sun sets around 5:10 so they picked us up at 2:30, we left by 2:45, boarded the boat and got settled and probably left by 3:30 and arrived back at the marina at 6:30 and back to DT at 7ish. The sunset was gorgeous!

                  BEACH BONFIRE- Grade: B

                  That reminds me - we arranged for a bonfire with Landy for after the boat. She recommended we do it at 9pm b/c before that they were playing a movie. It worked- we just paid $50 cash for it. i gave that to landy during our meeting. Well come 9:15, i saw no flames on the beach. So i had to ask one of the staff to call Landy and they did and she came down and had someone light it up for us and set chairs around it. It was pretty mellow at that point but it was nice. They didn't leave any extra wood so once it burned down it was pretty much done. This was the night b4 the wedding though so i was fine with going to bed early!

                    Amy-I forgot to ask you what time your ceremony started?
                    I am thinking about the sunset cruise also-it sounds super fun
