Need Help on time of year to get married????

Recommended Posts

I am asking for any advice possible.

I am getting married in Playa de Carmen but can't decide a time of the year... we are stuck on any particular date and that is part of the problem!

 

We just know that nov, dec and jan are not on our list.

 

Any opinions?

 

Thanks!

I picked july/august because it's the most economical to travel.. so if price is important for you and your guests, jul/aug is best. If price isn't a concern, feb is probably best but be careful of any school vacation weeks.. .

I voted Feb. Out of your list I would only have considered Feb or May. October is certainly to have a lot of rain and July and August are just really hot and humid. You might want to see when Carnival is, that's always a nice treat.

The only problem is that February is peak time and everything will be more expensive and the resorts will all be at capacity. I know August is going to be hot but I guess we will sweat a bit to save some $$$ lol

HOLA... I hope we can help as we have been experiencing lots of weddings in the Riviera Maya and for sure have some insight as to the gameplan for timing your wedding.

 

There are high seasons in Playa, there is no doubt. The weather in Playa is so very nice from November through April, temperature wise. The months of May - September are generally HOT, steaming hot... Especially in July, August & September.... Wow, we are talking 85-95 and near 90% relative humidity every day. That is so painful when wearing suits or jackets or even long sleeves, which some guest feel obligated to wear...

 

I'd say anytime between November - March. Traffic on the streets seems to be higher in November and falls off into mid December and gets slower in January. Mid February the traffic starts to pick up and generally hotels start to raise rates because demand picks up for bookings, and the high crazy season begins....

 

For sure, check out our Seasonal Guide and read about our thoughts on ceremony start time (links provided to sunset schedules too). Hopefully this can shed some light on your question!

 

Cheers & good luck planning!

I am not sure when the season is but I would check out the rainy season and the hurricane season and avoid those. My FI's cousin had a DW in Rivera Maya in the end of October and hurricane wilma interrupted and they ended up having to pay for 2 weddings because they had to leave before the wedding in RM (tip: get travel ins.) Hope that helps!

Thanks to all for the great information and comments.

The travel agent is pulling some prices together so that may seal the deal for a value for our guests...

 

So if we go with February do you think that 6 months is too soon or would you recommend waiting until next year? (that seems so long... I am not so patient) :-)

I chose May. My reasoning... Feb you have the begging of the spring breakers, Oct is still a lot of chance of rain, and July/Aug is going to be way too hot, but definitely the most economical time.
