I'll take a look at the map in the T+L tonight and post the odds for Mexico in October.
Personally, we went to the Caribbean last year during September and we're having our wedding there in late October this year. Historically August is the worst month for the BVI, and for us there is a significant difference in cost to go at this tail end of low season so it's worth the risk to have our wedding in the BVI.

Any advice would be great - We are leaning towards just doing it and keeping our fingers crossed!
Bla bla bla, what does this mean to you?? Well, to us, we pay $1400 for a 1 way ticket from Cancun to Atlanta to escape the region when we must because we are threatened by a category 5 hurricane... If that ain't a cost of doing business, then I don't know what is....(if you think this chit chat is hype, then hit this blog post for the real deal holyfield)
Just be aware, as a bride planning a wedding during hurricane season, regardless of any other details or thoughts, you are taking a risk. As with any risk, you are considering potential loss. Wanna know about potential loss? Just ask my Aug 21 wedding client who had their wedding totally canceled.... It is total HELL trying to get monies back from travel agencies...from hotels, and from vendors...
Risk a wedding during hurricane season....we ask that you completely understand the definition of risk and the implications of that risk outlined in your contract.
coming from the heart of this disposition,
