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

Falan

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!

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?

    • 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.
