    @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!

            it may be busy, I would do it another day because I want the focus to be on my wedding not with all the holiday things they might have planned

             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.

                Hi there!

                The cinco de Mayo in Mexico is not that important as in the USA so do not worry about getting married in a holiday day in Mexico because is not like this.

                 

                Best!
