    I didn't know where to put this so I thought this might be appropriate. My FI and I are in the early stages of planning. We are having a small wedding with just closest friends and family.

    We first considered Maui, but after a bit of research we have realized its just to expensive and not practical for our guests. As well, Maui has no all inclusive options which we feel is important as we don't want to spend our vacation cooking and doing dishes or eating at a restraunt and paying for each meal.

    We then decided Mexico would be a good option as its affordable and has all inclusive resorts. Neither of us have been to Mexico before. My mom, who has a severe milk allergy has expressed some concerns over what she is going to be able to eat at the resorts restraunts.

    Just wondering, for those of you who have been to Mexico, do you think she will have enough to eat at the resort and are the restraunts pretty open to cooking special food for people with allergies??

    All your help is much appreciated!!!

      i have food allergies (meat, chicken, pork) and i'm lactose intolerant. i just got married in mexico last week and i had no problem finding enough food to eat.

      if it is a severe allergy (epi-pen required) she can let them know when she is booking al la carte restaurants and they may have her bring a note with her to the reservation.

      at the buffet there should be enough to eat for her without milk as i'm sure this is something she has dealt with long enough to know what foods to avoid.

      i prefered eating at the buffets over the al la carte because their was more options for me and i could pick & choose what i wanted.

      if you have any more questions feel free to ask me. i'm also a holistic nutritionist.

        I think the Cancun resorts would be able to deal with this. I read a trip advisor report from my resort posted by someone with a gluten allergy and they said the chef knew what they could or could not eat as soon as they mentioned it. I think a well traveled area like the RM has seen it all and has all sorts of requests so you should be OK. When it comes to narrowing down resorts though you should definitely ask each one about this and make sure their answers put you at ease. Thats the last thing you need to worry about!
