Courtney that is Dia De Los Muertos and yes it is a huge Mexican Holiday honoring those who have died, I don't imagine you would be able to get a priest that day anywhere in the country without paying a whole lot of money. Its a very cool holiday though, if you are there while it is going on, you would enjoy the day I am sure.

    If you're really set on having Nov. 1 as your wedding date, you might consider getting legally married here and then having a symbolic ceremony in mexico. We're having a close friend "ordained" to be our "minister" to officiate over our ceremony in Mx but will sign the papers somewhere here in the US. It saves us the headache of the paperwork (translations, birth certificates, etc..) and saves my fiance from having blood drawn in a foreign country - he's a little uptight about that. Another thing to consider is that both the Day of the Dead celebrations involve both Nov 1 & 2nd.

      I think booking with TA is extremely helpful for the brides. the TA answers our questions and also deals with the hotel wedding coordinator and get answers from them quicker. For some reasons, many of my friends prefer to booked their trips online instead of going through with my TA. The price is almost the same.

            Tammy I would like to get more info on your services, etc. Do we need a date? We know March 2008 but not sure of day yet. I would like to find a reliable agent and we are not home enough to work with one there.

                We found our TA by going to a bridal show. There were a ton of TA's there. We met with them and some of them we knew we wanted to meet with them and others we knew weren't a good fit for us. We met with about 4 TA's before deciding on our TA, who is a DW/HM specialist.

                  This website had some good info on weddings and I think they are also a travel agency. Take a look: Cancun weddings - Wedding planners and wedding coordinators organize beach ceremonies and packages in Cancun
