    Hello Everyone!
    I stumbled across this site yesterday when trying to decide on a hotel in Mexico for my destination wedding! I got engaged August 15, 2009 and I've changed my mind about where to get married atleast 5 times! No one even listens to me anymore! My original choice was a destination in Europe but being that it's so far I knew not too many people would make it! I tried to find places here in Georgia (I live in Atlanta) but my heart was at the beach! We then thought Destin, Fl. but that hasn't caught me either! I came across the RIU Palace Riviera Maya and I LOVE IT! So.... the dilemma now is choosing a date! For such a big trip I don't want it in October or later b/c of the holidays, but I have my heart set on a beach wedding so I don't want to go during peak hurricane time! Most everyone takes a summer vacation so I figured this could be it for them next year. Which month is better (as far as least amount of rain or chance of hurricane) in Playa del Carmen, June or July?? As soon as I figure that out I'll book it so I can't change my mind again! And so my friends and family can decide if they can come!
    Thanks for any advice

      hey Falan,

      welcome to the site.

      congrats on your upcoming wedding and happy planning!

      I believe June is better than July, but google it just to be sure!! Good luck!

        Welcome! Both months are pretty tough in Playa, but June is a little less hot and humid than July.

              When you say tough, do you mean heat or rain:)? I've always wanted to have a destination wedding, but the rain issue has been my worry!

                  I stand corrected. Both months have an average humidity of 84%, the avg. high is 90 in July and 89 in June, but there are an avg of 6 days of rain in June but only 4 in July.

                    Welcome to the forum!!!
                    I think June and July are pretty equal as far as hurrican season/heat/rain. So perhaps your best bet would be to contact the resort and see what days they have available, especially if getting married on a certain day (like Friday or Saturday) is important to you. Perhaps that will help you narrow down a date?
