Have you ladies heard bout Hurricane Rina?  She is supposed to come very close to the entire Riviera Maya this coming Thursday / Friday / Saturday!!

For those brides with weddings during this time, I hope for the best for you.  Fingers crossed that the projected path is off.  And for those of us with weddings soon after (mine is a week from Saturday) I hope any damage is minimal.

I'm supposed to get married this Sunday, 10/30 in Puerto Aventuras, just south of Playa. I'm really hoping the storm will turn! We're flying out Friday morning (hopefully!) Agh.. this is stressful!

Try not to stress too much :(  We can't control the weather.  Keep in mind, the news/media will most likely blow this out of proportion because bad news sells.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for everyone.  We leave for Playa del Carmen 10/31, but four of our guests are schedule to arrive 10/29.  I'm hoping for safe, stress-free travels for all of our guests and all of yours.  

 

ps - we are going to let our guests find out about Rina on their own when they watch the news tonight/tomorrow.  We figured there is no sense in sending an email or text to the guests because we are optimistic and don't want everyone stressing us out.

I'm on the verge of an anxiety attack. We (in theory) leave for Cancun on Thursday. Wedding is on 11.1.11... I am hoping that's going to be enough days in between. If the tail end of the trip and latter half is still fantastic, then I will have no qualms. I am just really stressed. More than for myself, I'm actually really worried about our guests who have paid all that money and arranged for time off to come to the wedding. Even in these natural disaster cases, it's not easy to reschedule everything. Not impossible.. just not easy. 

 

Does anyone remember what happened a few months back in August? I think there was a hurricane forecasted to hit Jamaica, but I can't recall any of the details and if it really came to fruition. Maybe time for googling skills... 

 

Serious good vibes, hopes, and prayers to my brides out there!!!

Forgot to mention, we're calling our group over the next day or two so that we can all make a decision together. Our group is so small and close knit that it's important to us that it's a group decision. Not that everyone has to adhere to our decision, but at least everyone will have a say in things.

I wish I could give you a big hug.  I am right there with you on the anxiety attack - all of the excitement about the wedding is gone and nothing but stress is left behind.

 

Have you contacted your airline to see what they are saying?  Please keep me up to date on what your plans are, because I have certainly got my fingers crossed for you.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
