Also I have a lot of people who have traveled there and some complained about getting sick b/c of the food or not liking the food all together.
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???
I have made a little research myself with a group of Mexican friends and Cinco Mayo is indeed a holiday but definitely not Independence day, so it´s a holiday ( no one works) but not crazy partying so You will have no problem organizing your wedding on that day!
