Newbie overhere desperate for info re: recent weddings in mexico riviera maya!
Posted 31 March 2009 - 02:37 PM
I've been engaged for 1 yr now and my fiance and I decided to get married at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya in Feb 2010. We are scheduled to fly dwn there April 13th to meet w/ a wedding planner and to assess the hotel.
HOWEVER, with all the hype re: the civil unrest in Mexico, my family and friends are making us have second thoughts. I literally had a blowout w/my Dad last night and I hated talking to my Dad with such a tone.
Thus, I've joined BDW simply to attain info re: destination weddings in Mexico and to get advice from similarly situated persons. I want to hit my parents with as much info as possible.
Excited to be here!
MBettyB soon to be MrsBettyL

I'm getting married at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya in February of 2010 as well, and have been encountering the same problem. My response to people who are concerned is that I have no desire to put those I love in danger and that I've been assured my multiple sources that the Riviera Maya is safe. There are dangers whenever you travel to another country, and it's always wise to be cautious where ever you go. I've explained that Tijuana is very far away from the Riviera Maya, but there were some recent incidents in Cancun, so that argument didn't hold water for very long. The bottom line for us is that the Riu Palace Riviera Maya is where we want to get married. We're hoping that things calm down in the next few months so people can stop being so concerned. We might consider a change of location if the situations escalates though. Good luck!

My DH and I recently were married in the Riviera Maya on Feb 19/09. No one in our group of 18 had any problems. Good luck!
