    Okay ladies,

    I need help. I really want an October wedding at El Dorado Royale in the RM. Tammy suggested I not do it in October since it is hurricane season. I really want to do it then but am afaid of a hurricane hitting during that time. I need some advice, please help!

    should I do it in October or not (October 6)??

      Well I think you need to way your pros and Cons. If it's hurricane season, do you really want to chance your wedding day being ruined? Or is it a risk your willing to take? If you choose to do it on that date, then I would arrange with your WC an alternate plan in case their is a hurricane.

        For some reason I thought I replied to this but it must have not gone through.

        I agree with tammM though. The actual chance of a hurrican hitting is not highly likely if you look at the statistics BUT it is huricane season and there is still that chance. If it was just a vacation than I would say take the chance. But its your wedding, and so much time and effort is put into that special day, not to mention the memories and pictures you will have forever. If a huricane did hit than it would possibly ruin one of the most important days of your life.

          I am getting married on October 12 in Cabo and made plans for a back up if it rains. I was worried about this too, but my WC told me not to worry that last October there was only like one day of rain and that the news always make it seem worse than it really is. Do you have a WC to inquire about the date?

          i already told you how i feel about the date...even if you could push it back a bit it would lessen the chances.

            We are getting married on Isla Mujeres on Oct. 5th.- the biggest suggestion I have is "trip insurance" - I understand and bet I could about quote many of those conversations word for word.

            I am sure we will have beautiful weather and let me know if you want to team up with some planning since we are pretty close in dates.

            Congrats and remember it is your day....

              Thanks so much for the kind words. I think I am willing to take a risk...If a hurricane hits then I can deal with it and change my plans. I really want October 6 and something in my heart of hearts tells me to go for it. Hey, I'm a risk taker...

                it is totally doable but then be sure to get trip insurance and push your guests to get it as well. it will let you sleep better at night.

                  It all boils down to what would make your day special. If you don't mind about unrelibity and it doesn't bother you to make changes at the last minute, than go for it. However, even if you can change things around due to weather, you also need to think about what kinds of things you want to do on your honeymoon or things for your guests to do. If it is bad weather the whole time, everyone will not be albe to enjoy the atmosphere and culture. I personally would not want to risk it.
                  Make sure your trip insurance covers both land and air. Many insurances only cover one portion and don't specify before hand. But if they are both covered, that is a good option to be safe.
