    Sept is definitely peak hurricaine season in Cancun. My original date was Sept 19 and we wound up changing it bc of hurricaine season. However, I have also heard about people having great weather in Sept. If your venue has a nice inside spot as a backup then go for it. One thing in life you can.t predict is the weather. If you are the type of person who is laid back and can role with the punches than I wouldn.t sweat your date but if you are like me whp gets flustered and wound up easily then I would rethink either your date or your location.

    As far as getting married on a holiday weekend.. it may not be the most considerate choice since many people like to plan their own special getaways. Also travel prices are usually much higher. However, if you know your guests would appreciate the extra paid day to go to your wedding then that would be a good choice.

    Good luck deciding! Remember, your wedding will be great no matter where or when, rain or shine - it's your day!

      I myself was set on having a September wedding but after a lot of debating decided it was too big of a risk and went with May, I'd rather have guest spend more money to avoid a hurricane.

      Good luck!

      I was married on August 9 last year, and the weather was spectacular!

      If your heart is set on September 4, and Cancun, I say go for it! Yes, there's a risk of bad weather, there's also a pretty good chance it will be beautiful. I just checked weather underground (Welcome to Weather Underground : Weather Underground) and here's what September 4 looked like for the past 5 years:

      2008 - high 89, low 75, 2.45 inches of rain
      2007 - high 86, low 73, 0.15 inches of rain
      2006 - high 93, low 77, no rain
      2005 - high 95, low 73, no rain
      2004 - high 91, low 75, no rain

      So, in 5 years, there was really only one day with any significant rain. If you love it, do it.

      Happily married since 2008

        I am the same boat. I want to get married Jul 17th weekend, but my guests can save about $300 at the end of August. I am trying to decide if it is worth it!! Thanks for the underground website...I will check out my dates!

          We were in Cancun from September 8-18, 2009. It was such a great time and we had beautiful weather. It did rain hard in the middle of the night the last night we were there, but that was no big deal. On the day of our wedding, Sept 11, it clouded over and rained out over the ocean but not on land. We had the wedding at 5pm and the clouds had cooled everything down a touch so it wasn't so hot. Plus the clouds made for some really awesome pictures. I could not have asked for a better day! So my advice is to plan your wedding whenever you want and don't worry about the weather!
