We are considering having a private function outside at around 8pm. The thing is that in Cancun it is still around 26 degrees at that time.

 

Has anyone done this? How did you find the weather in your dress? I can't help but think it will just be too hot for everyone.

 

HELP!!

Well it is Mexico so your guests will probably expect it to be hot....

 

I would put somewhere on your website or in your information to your guests to dress appropriately for an outside reception.. Also maybe provide hand held fans for your guests?

How is it for a bride in a big wedding dress though?

I also would imagine it would be hot-if your dress is long/big have you thought about changing into a special dress for the reception?

Hi,

Well I am only planning on doing this once so I am going to stay in it for the whole day. :)

I am also worried that the cake will mealt a little or because we are outside in the dark you are not going to be able to see the pictures very well. :~

Those are all very reasonable fears. You can ask the hotel to keep the cake inside until it is time to present it. If you are having an outdoor nighttime reception you should work with your photographer closely to make sure he has adequate lighting. Are you having it poolside, where there are lights, or under a cabana, that is also lit? If not, you may need to bring extra lighting. You can do something fun with colors if you would like. Regarding your dress, it sounds like you already have yours picked out, but if not, this should certainly be something you consider when you shop for one. I had mine made, because I wanted it to be weather appropriate. It was very comfortable, but I imagine something satin and with lots of bustles may get uncomfortable. Especially in the May humidity.

Some other Moon Palace brides were saying that it is very very hot even late. I am going to have my reception indoors because I want everyone to be comfortable. Do you know how much more it is to have it inside? I have been advised to get a dress made of taffeta, chiffon, or organza because it is light and flowy so it will be cooler.
