    Hi everyone!  I'm new here, so hopefully I'm posting this to the right place.  I'm newly engaged (as 2 days ago!) and we want to do a May 2012 wedding in Playa del Carmen.  Unfortunately, the only weekend open at the venue I like is MOTHER'S DAY weekend!  Ahhh!


    So, it seems the general consensus for NON destination weddings is that Mother's Day weekend is perfectly acceptable, but what about a destination wedding (most people will be away from home/traveling that Sunday)?  Is this good to go, or an etiquette no-no?

    I don't think it would be a problem.  Mothers day is not really a holiday that most people celebrate, more just a day to get together with your mom.  For most people, its just a phone call or a card in the mail, not a big fancy turkey dinner like most other holidays.  I say if thats the only weekend thats available then go for it.

      I agree with PP. I think you're fine to do it that weekend. I don't think guests would be too upset about it.

        I think it is totally fine to do it over that weekend.  My b-day always falls on or around mother's day and I still celebrate my b-day over mother's day (but I don't like my step mom) !!!  HA!!!  I think you will be just fine and will not offend anyone!!!  :)
