Extra tips for your destination wedding in Playa del Carmen

People tend to forget that despite the tropical climate we also have seasons. The best time for your wedding is from December to April when it is rarely raining and the temperatures are mild, with cooler nights. Whereas in June and July it gets very hot and humid. From August until October it is rain season with an extremely humid climate. You might still consider these months since the prices drop and there are many sunny days too.

When shopping for your wedding dress keep Playa del Carmen’s climate in mind, and that you’ll probably be on a beach. Opt for light fabrics that allow breathability, such as chiffon or silk. And remember – high heels and sand don’t mix!

When you go to the beach before your wedding day, make sure to cream up well in sunscreen. You don’t want to walk down the aisle looking like a lobster! Also, tan lines are frown lines. Especially on your wedding day.

But, most importantly, remember to have fun and enjoy every moment of your special event!
