my fiance got me a really nice ring and we are considering not taking any of our jewlery to mexico for safety reasons.  do you think we are over thinking it?  we were going to go with costume jewlery as it will look fine for all the pictures.

sorry, the reason for this thread was because I heard criminals target wedding parties because they know they have lots of jewlery with  them

You shouldn't have any problems having your Jewelry in Mexico.  I took my e-ring to Thailand with me and kept it in the room safe most of the time because I don't like to wear it in the pool and ocean.  It's a personal decision, but I couldn't imagine not having my wedding ring at my wedding.

I will be getting married in Cancun, and I will most certainly have my engagement ring and our real wedding rings.  I cannot imagine not having our real rings at our wedding!  But I never take my engagement ring off - beach or pool, so I won't be worried about leaving that ring in the room safe.  If you keep your rings on, then how are you any different than any other married couple that has their rings?

I guess it's a personal decision, but if you are heading to any of the tourist areas of Mexico I really think you have nothing to worry about. If you do take it off, be sure to put it in the room safe, but overall I just always wear mine. Safety in Mexico is the same idea as being in New York, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, etc. - be aware of your surroundings (ie. stay on the beaten path), don't show off money, and keep things safe (ie. money tucked away, or in room safe). You wouldn't wander into a dark park alone at night...don't do it in Mexico either. I have travelled down there 8 times now, going again in a few days, and have never, ever had an issue. The people in the public tourist areas know they are making their living from tourist dollars. They won't bite the hand that feeds it. They are super friendly, and helpful, and if they do bug you a little to buy something, a simple No gracias and walking away works. Good luck with your decision!

I really don't think you have anything to worry about. Use your safes in your room if you are taking off your jewellery for any reason. But I think it should be fine.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
