14. I am positive that you will always find an outdoor taco stand or street cart open late. - perfect for a late night snack!!!

Such a good article! I just heard from my dad that one of my sisters thought we should pick somewhere else because Mexico is so unsafe. I'll have to send this along to her!

Mexico has such a special place in my heart.  My BFF and I went there together on vacation in 2006.  We loved it so much, we quite our jobs the day we got back to move there.  We had each made a plan for each other on how we could make it work and what we would do for work.  My plan was to go back to school for massage therapy and move down when I was done.  Her plan was to take some courses and move there.  Well, that was 5 years ago.  My BFF has lived there for 5 years now and while I was in school I met my FI and moved to his city instead.


I love Mexico!!!!  I have stayed in Playa del Carmen amongst the locals and found people to be helpful, kind and very warm.  My safety was never an issue, although I certainly didn't walk any back allies at night (I don't do that at home either).  When we were deciding on our DW, Mexico was one of 2 places to make the list.  In the end, we chose not have our wedding there bc we knew many of our guests would not attend bc they also watch the 6 o'clock news.


Thank you for posting this.  It warmed my heart a little and reminded me of how one beautiful place on earth changed my life in more ways than I could have imagined!

Love this, I have been travelling to Mexico for years and have always felt safe.  Some of the guests are convinced that they are going to get shot as soon as we land at the Cancun airport.  One (DH aunt) has refused to go but felt that she needed to let us know that maybe she would reconsider if we went to Aruba or Jamaica - sorry my wedding isn't good enough for her, guess she isn't getting an invite to the AHR!

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
