My mom is terrified, too, but not because of crime. (Thank god she hasn't read these articles.) But she's scared because my parents drove across the border in the 1970s and my mom got so sick with Montezuma's Revenge she vowed never to go back. You have no idea how many conversations I've had trying to convince her that driving into rural Mexico is nowhere near the same thing as going to a tourist town. AND - that was 30 years ago!! doh.gif Anyway - she's been really cute about it. I know she's scared to death, but every time I talk to her she just says "honey, whatever you want to do, we'll be there!" - but I can hear the quiver in her voice. sad.gif

SO...we're taking both of our parents down there in June. That way my mom can see the place and feel more comfortable when we go down there for the big event. She was in a really bad car accident a few years ago and has some anxiety issues, so I just want to get her down there early so she'll feel more comfortable. It takes her awhile to adjust sometimes, and if she arrived the day before the wedding, I think I'd be so worried about her that I wouldn't be able to focus.

AND I'm going to stock her room with bottled water from Costco. wink.gif Otherwise, I think she'd pass out from dehydration. No matter how much I tell her that the water is purified! I really do love her to death though...she really is cute about it...

we didn't even have to buy any. We got bottled water served to us everywhere. It was nice. :) But I really didn't lay off the margaritas so the water was a tad useless. haha

We've been to Mexico four times so far and everytime we go we bring Cipro with us. Its an antibiotic (I think) they use to treat anthrax, it will kill anything in your stomach. My doctor who goes to Mexico to dive suggested it and we never had a single stomach problem down there, even on tours to the small towns. We take half a pill every time we feel anything wrong and it works like magic. Maybe you should talk to your doctor and see if you can bring something similar just in case.

Oh - thank you so much for mentioning this!!! Someone told me about something called Align a long time ago and I completely forgot about it until now. I think Align is OTC and probably not nearly as strong as Cipro. I'll have Mom talk to her doc before we go. Thank you!

I photographed a wedding in Mexico (about 2 hours south of Puerto Vallarta) last year, and I never worried about my safety while there.

 

It sounds like the hotel is really increasing their security, and it's good that they're letting you know that so you won't worry. Glad to hear that your FI had a talk with his mom.

 

Happy planning, and have a great wedding!

 

Tod

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
