WOW... that is a lot of unwanted stress leading into the wedding.  The travel part has been the most stressful part for me so far, but I can't image the resort changing dates on the group.

Last year's group's dates were changed by 4 days thus altering their entire vacation and almost jeopardizing the wedding!!! 

So make sure you do your research!!!!! 

Good Luck!

We originally started witht the NOW Jade, which we were in LOVE with. My family was saying NO to Riveria Maya because of people getting robbed at the airport and the taxi drivers getting shot. My FI and I weren't too worried about it because we honestly think it isn't as bad as everyone is saying but we would def have a different turn out so that is why we decided on Punta Cana. We just want our guests to come and celebrate this day with us and now they are so excited we switched it to Punta Cana.

 

This is what happened to us too, my bridesmaid is from mexico and she told us she wouldn't go because her family lives in Cancun and was telling her that people are getting murdered on resorts, like nice ones as some sort of warning to tourists and that their g'vmnt is hiding it so as to not loose the tourism money!! I don't know if its true or not but she wasn't the only one who refused Mexico. Its too bad too because we just LOVED Riviera Maya!

My family is also giving me crap for choosing Mexico.. Even though they have never been.. My fiance and I love Mexico and have always felt safe when we travel there..

 

Its common sense that you use good judgment wherever you go.. foreign country or not!

 

I for one cannot wait for 2011 to pass:)

I hear ya on that one!!!! Cannot wait until 2012!!!!! It's true you have to use good judgement and common-sense for that matter. You don't have to be in Mexico for something "bad" to happen. We cannot wait to go back to Mexico!!!!

Hi 2012 brides!! We are getting married in 3 weeks at Now Jade in the Mayan Riviera!! Been planning this for almost a year now and can't believe we are so close to departure! :)

 

My FI and I both have never been to Mexico before and for several of our guests, it will be their first time at an all-inclusive resort. Everyone is super excited. When we first announced we are having a destination wedding and we chose Mexico, there was some backlash from the parents but now our guests are booked and starting to pack for the trip :)

 

Will post a full review of this resort when we get back. Happy planning everyone - it is going to be great year! woot.gif
