What does everyone think of doing a wedding mid-September in Riviera Maya? I know it's not the ideal time, but due to a million other events it seems to work out nice date wise. I was just curious of what others thought. TIA

Not ideal because of the risk of hurricanes? I was too worried to plan during peak hurricane season. If you do, I'd sugget getting wedding insurance. You can get great travel prices then.

We're getting married there Sept. 1st this year at the excellence. Rates are cheaper for our guest and it's over labor day so they'll have the extra day off from work. Chances of hurricanes are slim. We did not go for the insurance since airlines would honor change with inclimate weather and the hotel will honor your stay up to a year. We're take the gamble...

Roll the dice, but ask the hotel and your vendors to put in writing that if there is a tropical storm (not just a hurricane) you can cancel (and reschedule if they force you to commit to the dollars if not the days).

Someone wrote in a previous post, they were able to buy $45,000 worth of wedding insurance for $450, to cover everything, including guest's flights. You might want to consider inusurance for september. I found a website somewhere that listed all the hurricanes that have hit the area & when it happened. I don't know if it included tropical storms. I'll see if I can find it again. I think it was 1 every 3 years usually in sept-nov.

I tried to stay out of hurricane season, but our rates are so much higher...

Several couples on here are getting married in October in the RM.

 

I would think it would be very nice, just have a backup site (which most resorts do) and purchase good insurance. Tammy (host) could point you in the right direction for the insurance piece.

 

Let us know what you decide :)

Hello!

The hurracaine seasson starts from May to November. September use to be the rainy month but not anymore... nature have changed so bad that when it supposed to be rainy or windy is not any more... besides here in the caribbean you never now sometimes is raining in half of the hotel and in the other half is sunny...it is like a gamble!!

 

If you get or not the wedding insurance or writing contact the most important thing is in case of rain is your ACTITUDE... when bride and groom starts crying and yelling and being nervious because of bad weather the whole party will react like them... if you take it with calm and start playing under the rain it could even be fun!! everything depends on you!! you are the one who make the rules that day!

 

However for the mayans the rain was a blessing and means good luck!!

 

So good luck and don't stress yourself so much with the rain thing!!

 

Regards,

 

Yazmin.

Before I moved here I used to spend a week here every September. I've been here the past 5 or 6 Septembers, except the Wilma year, I moved here at the end of October and barely missed it. I love the weather in September/October. Yes there are rain showers but they are brief and refreshing. The water is warm for swimming and it's not too hot in the day. It's also not as crowded. But yes, hurricanes happen. Only the adventurous remain.

    • 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.
