Hey everyone I'm very new to this site and have been doing some browsing.  I am so excited to start planning my special day and I am leaning a lot towards having it in Mexico but I wanted to have it sometime next year 2012 in October or November.  Can any of you share how the weather is like over there around that time? Also any resort recommendations? I am also open to any other recommendations outside of Mexico. :) Thanks!

I think it's quite useful if you pick a specific location, e.g. cancun, puerto vallarta, cabo and go to

http://www.wunderground.com/

 

There you can scroll down until you see "History & Almanac"...you can choose your specific date or week and see what the apst years were like for rain, max and min temperatures. 

 

Hope this helps!

Playa Del Carmen weather, In our own words:

DECEMBER, JANURAY, FEBUARY 

This is the best time of the year to travel to the Mayan Riviera if you don't like excruciating heat. December and January, temperatures cool down and on cloudless days swimming is just beautiful. At this time of the year you get the least amount of daylight, but Playa Del Carmen & Cancun light up at night so it's not really an issue.

Humidity and rain are lowest during this period. If rain or a cloudy days do occur, things can cool down considerably. It is advisable to take a light jacket with you in order to stay comfortable.

MARCH, APRIL, MAY

Things start heating up mid-February and by April you can be roasting on the beautiful beaches of the Mayan Riviera. Water temperatures have not caught up but outside temps have started to rise.

The "rains" start in April peaking in July-August. This is a wonderful time to travel because after "Spring Break", things calm down until the summer travel season starts in late June. Water temps are warm enough to swim comfortably; it's hot but not "July-August" hot. Weather-wise, it's a great time of the year to go.

JUNE, JULY, AUGUST 

This is the hottest time of the year in Playa Del Carmen, especially mid-July and August. During these months the Mayan Riviera beaches fill with vacationers! 
Summer is also the rainy season however if it does rain, it tends to hit only once a day and for a very short period. Quite often you are happy it rained as it tends to cool things down a little, at least for a short while.

On a cloudless day in August the heat can be unbearable for some people. Shoes are needed because the sand can get too hot to walk on. Even walking any great distance can become a chore. Dehydration is a major factor during the summer months as well as sun-burn. At 12:00 noon you can get burned in 15 minutes without proper sun-block. 

SEPTEMBER, OCTOBER, NOVEMBER

In September and October the ocean water is hot from the summer heat. The outside temperature drops making daytime temps hot but bearable. Evenings are beautiful and you can still swim at night and be comfortable. This is also hurricane season along the Atlantic coast. Hurricanes or tropical storms can occur anytime between June and December, however the common period is September - November. It is advisable to pay close attention to weather reports during these months.
