hello everyone

 

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.

Hello and welcome to the forum. I would hope that the swine flu will be long gone my November. So I wouldn't worry about that. Congrats on your upcoming wedding

Hello,

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!

Hello and welcome to the forum!

 

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!

Hello, and welcome! I, too, am a November bride. I'm not worrying about the flu at all. While it may be a cause for concern, it's not a cause for panic, and I'm optimistic that by November it will be a distant memory!

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!

I was supposed to be in the Mayan on Monday for my wedding, and one of my bridesmaids Aunts lives there. We were in contact with her and she said she literally wasn't hearing anything about it. I think most of the hype is coming from the government and I am sure by November it will be smooth sailing! We were supposed to stay at the Barcelo and we've had friends that stayed there, they said it was great, at least something to look into. It's quite large and there seems like there's lots to do!

Best of luck with your wedding planning!

I'm still having my wedding in the MR in February but like other brides, I'm waiting for the hype to settle down before booking.

 

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.

    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.

    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
    • Thanks for answering Patty! We are having the legal proceedings done in December so february is the celebration. We will have pictures first then a ceremony with a religious discourse and then have the reception.  I'm guessing we will be 50 people, give or take. Half of them are Canadian. They will need accommodations but if we have the wedding ag a resort I dont want them to be forced into staying there if they dont want to. 
    • Hello Everyone! Thank you for sharing your experience about Tom Moks. We have read it very careful before we booked. But at the end of the day we were very happy with his service. I consider myself as a difficult customer but this time everything went just smooth. We had our wedding in Sayulita, close to Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco. He came on time, he stayed with us late night.  After all we had to wait like 3weeks to receive the pictures, but we LOVED them. He sent us more pictures that he promises in the contract, and in 85% they were perfect.  The other 15% we asked him to edit once more, and he did it, without hesitation. This is his official Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/tom_moks_photography/  Personally I would buy his service again, but the decision is always yours. E.
