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

    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Well this a kind of situation mostly, It will be awkward situation for your parents, They are mature enough and parent don't want to spoil the marriage of their children. Don't worry everything gonna be fine. just have good bottle of wine for them🍷
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
