Worried about weather in February :/

Recommended Posts

I am getting married on February 14, 2010. The ceremony will be on the beach at 4:00. The reception will be held on a terrace. I am a little worried that it will be chilly once the sun goes down and my guest will be uncomfortable, being exposed to the elements for up to 7 hours. I am debating moving the reception into one of the ballrooms, but I really want the experience of having the reception outside.... confused!!

That's exactly what I was going to say!! You can get pashmina's for cheap

 

Or you could just expect your guests to know that the evenings are chilly & plan for it...although mine didn't!! But realistically, are the rooms that far from the terrace that they couldnt scoot out between events & grab a sweater/wrap/etc??

 

Good luck!! And I wouldn't change your plans that drastically for the sake of people maybe being a little chilly!

I was there in January which should be chillier but it was actually beautiful at night. Pashminas are for sure all you will need

We are getting married 11 days after you and that's plenty of time to tell everyone to bring a sweater/pashmina/coverup. We have set up a wedding website (Wedding Websites by eWedding.com) and our guests are checking it regularly. We're not going to change the outdoor terrace for dinner and dancing - that's one of the best parts of getting married in Mexico! We're also going to put a pdf. or word attachment on the site closer to the wedding with the full itinerary of the week and other useful notes (bring sunglasses and water for hot ceremony at 4:00 pm, shawl or sweater for reception later, etc.). Hopefully they'll all be dancing and being a little chilly won't even be an issue!

Be careful which pashminas you buy. The one I got was a great price ($3.95) but is very thin. I'm getting married mid-December of this year and am just hoping that it won't be too cool for such a thin pashmina.

That's exactly right. My guests don't know that I have pashminas for them, however, I have informed them that it will probably be cool in the evenings, so I'm sure they will bring a sweater or light jacket.

Thank you ladies. I had the idea to get pashminas, I just worried about them still being cold. You are right though, I won't change my plans!!!! I live near the wholesale garment district. I can find pashminas of good quality for $30 for a dozen. I need to take the time to go down and pick them up.. tick tock, tick tock.

 

shellk... you are too funny. Is it for religious reasons that you didn't choose 2/14?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
