What day of the week are you getting married in Mexico?
Posted 27 April 2009 - 03:18 PM
We have set our hearts on our wedding date which is 10 years to the day that we first met. It could be any day of the week as far as we're concerned as long as we got our chosen date. Having said that all our guests are travelling from the U.K for a 2 week holiday so the day of the week doesnt make a difference to them either.

Just a friendly heads-up about August weddings in Mexico. It is VERY, VERY humid and VERY, VERY hot. I have photographed several weddings in Mexico during this month and have seen brides, grooms and entire wedding parties literally melt in front of my camera. Things I recommend to my clients: wear the lightest weight dress you can find that is made from natural material and that is breathable. Choose comfortable shoes that have air flow. If your feet get sweaty in tight shoes, the result can be nasty blisters (I seen it happen.... not too nice). If you have long hair it will be much cooler with it up. If people wear jackets, long sleeved shirts or the colour black, by the end of the ceremony they will be standing in a puddle of their own sweat.
I am from Canada so I understand North America fashion sense for weddings but I also now live and work in Mexico, so I can safely say that in the heat of August try to think functional (ie how can my fiance and I keep cool, how can my wedding party and guests keep cool) over what would be appropriate in the USA or Canada. The heavy and/or luxurious materials, and formal, layered attire that are certainly appropriate for North American weddings are simply not practical for weddings in Mexico in August, during other times in the year perhaps, but not August.
The good news about August weddings in Mexico: it is one of the best months for long, beautiful sunsets; the overall expense of your wedding will be less than in other times of the year and you can negotiate a better price with ALL vendors (hotel, flowers, wedding coordinator, food, everything!); and '000's of sea turtles come to lay their eggs on the beaches. Joining a group to search for turtle eggs and to help release baby turtles into the ocean can make for a unique and memorable activity.
I hope you find my advice helpful. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to help out.
