      Yeah, I try not to worry however my family and friends are telling us we should change our wedding location....its stressful because our wedding is in less than a year and its also a popular wedding date (11/11/11)

        Hi everyone,

         

        I am also getting married in November of 2011.  We'll be getting married in Playa del Carmen---we just have to settle on the date and location! 

         

        I wanted to reassure everyone who is worried about the violence in Mexico.  It truly truly is very far away from this part of Mexico.  Although I'm originaly from the Philadelphia area, I live in Merida, Mexico ( a city about 4 hours west of Cancun) and am also frequently in the Mayan Riviera area.  It really is safe here, and the problems in the border areas are not happening here, thank God.  

         

        -Sara :-)

          Wow Gran Caribe is supposed to be stunning, you must be so excited. I too wanted 11/11/11 but our hotel didnt have availability. We are getting married at the Dreams Tulum on the 10th now. So just before you!

           

          Have you started looking at dresses yet? I am going next week I think its going to be so much fun.

          Where are you getting married?

                  We are also a 11~11~11 DW at El Dorado Royale!

                  We just booked our room and flights this week! Excellent airfare sell going on by the way this week! Also, after checking in with the resort we found out it is starting to book up due to the popular wedding date! Something to think about!! We passed this info on to our guests and they are all starting to get their reservations in as well. Now that we and some of our guests have booked I'm staring to get nervous, crazy, happy, stressed, all at once! EEEEK! and I still need to go dress shopping! LOL!

                   

                   

                  Happy Planning everyone!
