Revolution Day Mexico - Get Married The Next Day?

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 


FI and I are currently thinking about postponing our wedding from April until later this year. We've looked into other months this year and for various reasons such as costs from flying from the UK, weather, work commitments, we have narrowed it down to November. We then have to consider the dates in which our travel agent fly from the UK, which is Tuesdays and Thursday and the pre wedding events we would like to have beforehand. Due to birthday celebrations earlier in the month (mine ;) ) we have narrowed down the date and think that Tuesday 22nd November could be good. This is the day after Revolution Day which is a Mexican Public holiday. Any thoughts on getting married the day after a public holiday? Will the service provided by vendors be good if they may have been out celebrating all day the day before? If there are any last minute queries, will we be able to get hold of vendors the day before? I currently have my hair and makeup planned for the day before the wedding which I think may not be possible to have the day before (not a huge issue though).


Thanks in advance  :)

As far as I know, We Wedding professional in Mexico take of what do, we are so used to doing events back to back holiday included.  I wouldn't be worried. I would make sure I work with vendors that i see their reviews and feel comfortable working with . November will have cooler weather and its still in law season.



Happy Planning!

@SunshineDreamKay  Congrats and welcome!


I'm sorry you need to move your wedding date. Planning a wedding is stressful enough without dealing with that. Having said that, I've been through it myself but we went the opposite way - from November to October and it was Jamaica, so the holiday wasn't a concern.


I agree with Joyce - wedding professionals are used to working around holidays. The only complication might be if you're planning to do a legal ceremony in Mexico rather than get married at home first and just do a symbolic ceremony, which many brides do. Some resorts will not count a holiday as one of your "required" days to be at the resort ahead of time for a legal ceremony. The wedding coordinators are around almost all the time so it's highly possible you would still see them around the resort on the holiday!


Good luck with your planning!

    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
