    We originally wanted to do our wedding on 10/10/10 but we were told by everyone to switch to November because the chances of avoiding a hurricane is better in November. I think the weather is so unpredictable nowadays everywhere so it's tough to predict.

    I am in your same boat about hair. I want to wear my hair down in lose curls but I've been told to wear it up because it's going to be windy. I never wear my hair up though so it's going to be weird for me. I don't even know which ones would look best on me.

    Wedding Date 11/12/2010- Riviera Maya - Hacienda Tres Rios

      Ya the last 4 years that we gone in November we have had perfect weather :) but you just never know these days it is very true.

      I really suggest wearing your hair up. I am in the same boat, I never wear it up. But I had to put it up the whole vacation every time we go because especially at night its very windy.

      I am doing a hair trial here in October before I go because I want to try 4 different looks and than decide. That way we can nail it for the actual hair trial in Mexico.

        What's the weather been like the past 4 years you've gone? I heard 75-80 during the day and chillier at night. We went last year in August and it was HOTTT then went in December and we had to wear sweatshirts at night. We'd rather have it cooler at night since we're doing an outdoor reception and people will be dancing up a storm....but just curious :)

              During the day it has been really hot I would say more lie 85 - 95 but than lie you said at night it has been 60 -70 and I always wear jeans and I have worn a sweat shirt to. It is much cooler at night but perfect for an out door reception! In my opinion its the perfect weather.

                    I had only heard of Cancun Transfers but this is really good!! We have a few people on our flight so this would work great for us. So it's $135TOTAL for a roundtrip van?

                      Yes! I have already done 3 makeup trials (1 w/ my artist, 1 w/ a friend and 1 at Sephora). It took me that many trials to realize I didnt want the "smoky" look!!! (duh) I first blamed the makeup artists style but realized my directions were the problem!! So now I am going to try for a 4th trial using the natural look and hopefully will finally nail it. While I also had a hair trial during my last visit, it wasnt exactly what I wanted to I'm considering going to my local stylist and even trying out someone at Super Cuts (or some other very cheap salon) in the hopes of getting good pictures to show my day-of stylist.

                      As for hurricanes, heck yes I'm worried - esp after the reports that this is expected to be an active hurricane season. Ours is not a big resort so even if something happens in October, I'm nervous things wouldnt be repaired in time for our wedding. Hence, I made my FI buy insurance!! Indeed, I am a BZ.
