Kristin's (cancunbride2be) Dreams Cancun Wedding Review...LONG!!

Recommended Posts

I really love this review and your pictures are so great!

 

Can I ask one question about the weather? How did you find the air and ocean temp at that time of year?

 

I would love to have a late April wedding, and obviously the water and weather would be quite warm by then (and I love the heat!), but I'm reading all this scary stuff about sea lice in April and May so now I am thinking maybe early December for a date instead... I imagine that this would be similar in climate to January when you were there.

 

THANKS!

The weather is gorgeous at the end of January. I've been to Cancun 3 times now during that same time (last week of Jan) and its always between 85-90 degrees and the ocean is perfect for swimming. We were all in the ocean constantly! This is also prime season for cancun, so the prices tend to be a bit higher during that time, just as an FYI.
I've also been in mid-December (for our site visit) and it is definitely cooler than it is at the end of January. Dont get me wrong...its still beautiful weather and my husband and I still laid out by the pool. But it wasn't like the "summer" weather like it is in January. I am a HUGE baby about cold water and I would not go in the ocean on our trip in Dec, but my husband went in and was fine. Just keep in mind that I am really really sensitive to cold, so I'm probably not the best person to give you feedback on that. I wont step foot in the jersey shore ocean unless its August..and sometimes its even too cold then!

Thanks so much for this info!
Too funny how you talk about being sensitive to the cold, cause I am too and that's the exact reason I am asking about it. FI thinks I'm nuts of course for even worrying about it, I mean it's Mexico, it's always warm! But I am weirdly sensitive to cool breezes, and yes cool water, so aside from the whole potential sea lice issue in April I think that would be a much better time as far as I'm concerned! I want hot summer weather where I don't have to worry about changing into pants or putting on a sweater in the evening! Like you said, I'm sure that December would still be wonderful though... ah decisions decisions!

Hey!

 

I know you posted these pics from 2008. I am debating on having my reception at the Spa Terrace or the Lobby Terrace. Where is the Spa Terrace located? Is there a view of the ocean, etc.?
