Corvette, I definitely think it's a good thing you rescheduled. Even if they DO lift the ban. because what if they didn't. And you waited too long. The odds of that June 10th date being taken by another put out bride are SO great. So this way you don't have to worry. You can spend the next month planning for an amazing wedding!! :)

    You are soooo right! t still sucks but its true what if that date wasnt available i would be devastated to have to wait till next year. Also just heard from MOH & best Man they both were able to switch vacation days so everyone is in except for FI's sis inlaw. but we did lose DJ Bob as he is already booked for that day! Now what any reccomendations? should I just go with the resort DJ? if anyone did the poolside reception and used their DJ please let me know how they were. Last thing, what is the weather like from june7th to 21st? i have heard hurricane season is this really true??

    Thank you all for the support, you ladies are amazing, i would be so lost right now without all of you!

          Oh I’m so sorry to hear about the cancelled weddings. My heart just breaks for you ladies! It makes me sacred to even book my wedding now. I just cannot imagine what you are going through. I’m so sorry.

            i'm officially canceled although jazmin hasn't replied to me yet. no photography with claudia, no group excursion to coba with cancunvista tours, no poolside reception with DJ bob. no gazebo, no xel ha. nothing.

            i couldn't even move my wedding date to sometime in june when i get back from my honeymoon cuz a lot of my guests said they wouldn't go. which i think is ridiculous because the cancunvista guy told me it's so sad that there isn't a single case in cancun but everyone is canceling.

            there are more confirmed cases of swine flu in the USA than in mexico. mexico has more deaths and was the start of it all but still. the world health organization raised the pandemic phase to 5 which is a strong signal that a pandemic is imminent.

            i'm trying to move the whole thing to jamaica now. found 2 resorts that have wedding openings for the same week i was going to mexico...in 8 days. one of them is the bahia principe there, unfortunately it's looking more expensive for the wedding part. now we'll see if my TA can work it so nobody pays extra...which is highly unlikely since we're not getting refunds. wish me luck i still get a wedding somehow

              Oh my goodness. I am so sorry to hear all the bad news girls. I'm crossing my fingers for those waiting to hear and trying to reschedule. Try to keep your spirits up and think positive, I know it's easier said than done! As long as you get to marry your best friend that is really all that matters right?!
              Hang in there!!

                I am just so nervous about all of this... I am so sorry for everyone... and I feel like FI's father is going to hold this against us forever because he has been against the DW from the get go... I just hope this all passes.... I want to cry...
