Jamaica vs. Mexico

Recommended Posts

I completely understand your dilemma! I have to admit there is still a small part of me that is still asking that question!


My husband and I have been to Mexico several times and LOVE it!! Especially Playa del Carmen! It's vibrant and interesting! And everything is so cheap in Mexico! We couldn't believe some of the prices we paid to eat out in great restaurants!! And the food is soooo good!! lol  And thre are so many fabulous wedding photographers!!!


We got married in Jamaica, and for our first trip there, we absolutely loved it!! The people are wonderful! The resort went out of their way to look after us. Our wedding was wonderful! Everything about our trip was great! We desperately wanted to go back for our first anniversary! Well, real life set in, and due to serious health issues, we have not yet been able to really celebrate our anniversary!


When I started to look at details for a vow renewal next year, I immediately started to look in Mexico just because we miss it so much. We haven't been able to get away for a couple of years now. But I will admit to having the heartstrings tugged by Jamaica, just because our original plan was to go back there for our first anniversary. And I read the posts on here about Jamaica and wonder....... should we or shouldn't we???


But then I think about the cost of photography and that puts me back to Mexico. The pricing for wedding photographers in Jamaica, compared to most in Mexico, I find is pretty high. I would love to go back to Jamaica, and the friends that have said they will travel with us would all love Jamaica. I'm just not sure I can get a photographer for the same reasonable prices as Mexico!


Good luck with your decision and happy planning!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
