DO I DARE plann a CINCO De MAYO WEDDING???...HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

@Maritza919 - We are kind of in the same boat. I think in the beginning I was so concerned about making a wedding date based on everyones schedule.  I knew I wanted a 2012 but didnt really care about the month. I just wanted good weather, so why not May, right.  But, when I started throwing it out to my family I there were a lot of groans about it. My Brother is in colllege so that would be the start of his Final Exams so he would be a ball of stress and probably would not be able to take his exams early.  My sister would be in high school so May would be probably be around her prom season. So I just didnt want to it to be so hectic for my immediate family.  Now I'm thinking more of a June, July or August date.

@jetsettinbride. Have you thought about April? I know it's with Easter and everything but it'll be fine. I told my other brother who is in college when he signs up for that semester try to not have a Friday class. Or he'll have to take off that day and just come for the long weekend.. He'll miss Friday and Monday class if he has. Plus I think they'll understand hopefully if his sister is getting married. I'm the only sister :) the school ends late in June so we'd have to do it in July and I though it'd be really hot so we decided on April. It's so hard to try and pick a date with everyones schedules in mind. At the end of the day I'm like this is our wedding it shouldn't be hard lol. Hopefully you find a date and place. Good luck!

Thanks Maritza!  Well I ruled out March and April b/c of Spring Breakers. As well as other people planning spring break trips with for their families.   So i know iwth June, July and August will definitely be the hottest months to have a wedidng but I would definitely only have the ceremony at 4pm or later.  Yes I cant wait to have a date done and confirmed. I believe half of the stress would be over with it.

I can understand. I thought a dw would be easier to plan but it's harder! My hotel is small and is more boutique so I had thought of that until my mom said thT spring breakers would not be coming to my hotel for a wedding. Its also the hotel your staying at as well. Good luck with your search!

 As far as Cancun goes, I thought it may be sort of cool to have my wedding on Cinco de Mayo (May 5th).  Have any of you heard of any other brides doing an actual Cinco de Mayo wedding in Mexico? If so, how did id turn out? Or would you not advise this.

 

 I did Google holidays observed in Mexico and May 1st is Labor Day in Mexico and May 5th is Cinco de Mayo, but not Mexico's actual Independence Day, which that is celebrated on September 16th. So it appears that Cinco de Mayo is more celebrated in the USA rather than Mexico.

 

I have read threads were other BW Meixco Brides accidentally planned their wedding day on a National Holiday in Mexico and I didnt want to do the same.

On one hand this could be a really fun day to do it with a built in theme or this could be probably not the best day to do so since the whole country may be partying so it may  be harder to book a Photographer , DJ and other vendors>>>  Thoughts???

Thanks BrideMoka. Yes, I decided against a Cinco de Mayo wedding.  My brother would be in the middle of Final Exams for college and I dont want him to be stressed during my wedding weekend.  So I'm looking at alternative dates.  Also, as you stated about it being a busy weekend where a  lot of other tourists may be flying in to celebrate Cinco De Mayo.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
