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.
