Hello all,

I am considering a June wedding in 2012 in the Cancun/Riviera Maya area, but I have read some things that the weather in Cancun in June is awful. Either really hot, or really rainy. I can deal with heat, but not with rain sad.gif. I was wondering if anyone has done a June wedding in Cancun area, or has visited during this time, and if they have any advice!!! I would love to hear your feedback!

i've been to the riviera maya (90mins from cancun) in june before. it was hot, and it rained a little bit. usually just a quick afternoon shower and because it was hot it was usually refreshing. nothing that lasted more than 30 mins.

 

other than that it was still beautiful out 95% of the time. the area is amazing, lots of sights to see and what's better than being out in the hot when you have a beach, pool & bars around you.

 

if you do consider it...make sure you get a lighter material wedding dress so you don't melt the day of your wedding!

 

good luck!

I got married on June 26th last year (2009) -- we stayed for two weeks and had beautiful weather. There was a storm that passed through the area for two days, but in all honesty whenever you're in a tropical climate, showers and rainfall are bound to happen at some point. Nevertheless June is a beautiful time to visit the area -- I've been there twice in June and it's not too hot and a little rain also helps clear the air.

 

If you want to marry in June, I say go for it! I did, and have absolutely no regrets wink.gif

Hola, yeah we have done a few in June :)

 

You are correct, in June in the Riviera Maya its HOT, as long as you don't make the guys wear black suits on the beach, you can deal with this. Bring water!

 

Rain...they say it rains a lot in the summer months, June, July August Sept... BUT, I've seen it rain a TON in December, and other years NONE.... Its very unpredictable. I do know that this is an El Nino year and that forecasters are predicting strong rain in some rainy countries in Central America and South America... will that mean the RMhuh.gif Who knows.

 

I'd say don't worry about the rain because you will go MAD planning around it. Honestly, any month you could pick here may have rain.

 

This bride got married June 27 2009... It rained, wedding moved inside.

Bonus, she got a rainbow :) Married at Excellence Riviera Cancun. The key is, the rain is usually quick and if there are thunder clouds or at least SOME clouds, then the after rain light from the setting sun is AMAZING and often, yielding rainbows. Rainbow appears after frame 111 or so...

 

Here is a Dreams Tulum JUNE 2009 wedding. Check out the amazing sunset (LOTS OF CLOUDS in the sky) the colors wouldnt be possible without that clouds and the slight chance that clouds make rain :)

 

Here is another Dreams Tulum June 2009 wedding, virtually cloudless sky.

 

 

Here is a Paradisus Riviera June 2009 Wedding, no rain. Some residual clouds in the sky, makes for nice sunset beach shots!

 

Here is a June 2009 Barcelo Maya wedding, no rain and some clouds...nice sunset shots!

 

Here is a June 2009 wedding with BIG SKY and lots of beautiful sunset moments, the clouds at the twilight hours were amazing!

 

Here is another June 2009 Hotel Esencia wedding... nice sky and no rain.

 

Looking back at June 2009, I think we shot 16 weddings. I recall it only raining at 1 of them. She got a rainbow :)

 

Cheers and happy planning and hopefully, less stressing about an element you really can't control or predict!

Matt, I booked my wedding for 6pm thinking that it would be a cooler time of day, but now I'm worried that it will be too close to sunset for good pro pictures after a 30-35 minute ceremony. What is your professional opinion?

I was Married June 24, 2009 and I have to say, although it was REALLY hot (& humid) we had a beautiful week. It did rain alot the day we left to go home, but we didn't care.

I think it's going to be Hit or miss, but I wouldnt say that June is a rainy month

 

And Although I am no professional, to the post above mine..My Wedding was at 5:30pm and we got some really good pictures between 6 and 7...So I would try to move your ceremony up a half an hour :)

I have been to Cancun often in June and have had beautiful weather (hot). Most of the time i found myself sitting my the pool wishing s could would come by to give me some relief from that hot sun!

Like midnight24 had mentioned there is the odd shower in the afternoon, but nothing too serious. I am actually getting married this June in Cancun and i am hoping that this post does not make a liar out of me :)

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions.
