we were hoping to get married in mexico nov/09 - but now are not sure
is anyone else out there scared of the flu that is kicking around? it is a second marriage for us both and i have a 8 year old from my preivous marriage so the resort we pick must be kid friendly - but i dont want it to be too kid orienated either so that the guests who are coming with us wont be bored.

I just joined too. We are also planning to have our wedding in Mexico- in Dec 09. While we are holding off booking right now mostly because we know it would make some of our guests uncomfortable to put down a deposit at the moment we are still planning to have it there. Realistically if you look at the other recent pandemic scares (sars, avian flu) none of them lasted 8 months and by the sounds of it they are taking all the precautions they can right now in Mexico to make sure it doesn't spread. So hopefully they're able to nip it in the bud before more people get sick (same goes for Canada or we're in trouble too)!
Sorry I'm no help with the resorts. The only one I've been to and where we're getting married (Catalonia Royal Tulum) is an adults-only. Good luck with your search, don't stress!

I'm getting married in Mexico in October and we're still going ahead with our plans. There's been NO documented cases in the Riviera Maya (where our wedding is) but there HAS been documented cases where we live. We had planned on sending out our invitations this past week but are holing off for a few weeks until the hype dies down because we didn't want everyone to reply "no" right away. If it's something that really concerns you, you have plenty of time to change your location.
Where in Mexico are you thinking of getting married in? Forum members should be able to give you some resort suggestions that fit your requirements!

As for kid friendly resorts, I've only ever been to an adults-only resort, El Dorado Seaside which is part of the Karisma chain. They do have a few family friendly resorts called Azul Beach and Azul Sensatori. If the service is the same at the Azul resorts as it was at the El Dorado resorts, you would have nothing to worry about!
Good luck and happy planning!

As for kid friendly resorts that are still fun for everyone else - I've stayed at the Barcelo and the Bahia Principe and both are very big with lots to do. Both also have a discotheque for those who want to go dancing.
