Yeah, we are in the same situation.  Our wedding is at Moon Palace Cancun on Friday August 10th.  About 40 of our guests are scheduled to fly in on Wednesday, the day Hurricane Ernesto is projected to hit.  I'm not going to worry about the rain, but I am concerned our guests are going to be stranded in connecting city airports overnight on Wednesday, and not be allowed to fly into Cancun until Thursday.  Its basically a nightmare.

There is better news this morning about Ernesto for Riviera Maya bound brides. Although it is too soon to breathe a sigh of relief, the computer tracking models are starting to show a landfall to the south around the Belize/Mexico border. Please check this site for their daily post. It is one of the most accurate sites to follow and the one that we check a couple of times a day for updates:

Jeff's prediction is for Ernesto to remain a TS and pass to the south of us. Tomorrow's forecast will be more accurate in that respect. With luck, it will only mean a rainy Wednesday.

 

Good luck.

Yup!  things are looking better!  Fingers crossed, and this shouldn't be a problem for Friday weddings in Riviera :)

The probability of Ernesto missing the Riviera Maya is now pretty good. 

 

However, the forecast is 70% chance of rain for Tuesday and Wednesday, 40% for Thursday and only partly cloudy for Friday.

 

Make sure your resort has decent backup plans for your day in case it does rain.

 

Enjoy your week in our beautiful neighborhood!

The storm washed out Tuesday, and poured steady rain and gusty winds until Wednesday morning. The weather cleared up on Wednesday and was perfect for the next 6 days. It worked out perfectly.

Yup!  The weather was absolutely beautiful for the wedding and trash the dress session I had.  Beauitful sunshine :)  The hurricane did some damage, but nothing too terrible that we weren't able to work around it
