Hopefully by the time your wedding comes, this whole thing will be over. I feel so much for you guys right now. It sucks that your weddings are being compromised by both the violence and now the swine flu. It is horrible!

This is horrible. I honestly didn't think it was that serious and thought maybe the news was hyping it up- but FI's two close friends got to Playa Carmen (like 40 min from Cancun) two days ago, freaked out, and are flying back today with doctor's appts made already. Good luck to all of you who's weddings are coming up. I can't even begin to picture how stressful this must be.

Here is an email from cecilia I sent here regarding cancellations/refund. I am still a little confused by her response.

 

 

Cecilia,

 

OK, thanks anyway. Just a little upset and now all that is going on in Mexico is stressing me out. Have you had any brides cancel beacuse of the swine flu? Are you refunding monies?

************************************************** ****************

Gaylene:

 

We still waiting for the answer from our accounting department and from out corporate offices in Philadelphia.

 

We are positive that we will be fine pretty soon. Regarding the refund, yes we are thinking in that, I’m asking you for a little bit of time to have the right answer for you. Can you e mail me back next week, please?

thanks for that post ... knowing dreams they won't be giving any refunds, but at least it sounds like they are looking into what they will offer (maybe a rescheduling with no penalties, or a credit at another AMresorts elsewhere?).

 

this is getting out of control. i've been refusing to come up with a "plan B" and saying i'm still going as planned, but wtf? not sure if i've been being naive when i should be changing all my plans and freaking the f out?

 

just a few days ago my aunt and uncle actually ADDED two days to their trip! haha either they're crazy and like, "BRING IT ON, PIG F*CKERS!" or they lead very sheltered lives and don't watch the news, LOL!

After a year and half of planning, now we have to contend with not only the drug cartels, earthquakes, now the swine flu. What could possible be next? My wedding is May 17th in Cancun at Dreams. Hopefully, this will be cleared up by than. The news station reported only a few new cases of flu in Mexico today. Could this possibly be contained? Good luck to all the girls who have weddings in the next few weeks and that this mess is resolved.

My wedding is May 30th and I am not going to worry myself. The only thing that is driving me crazy is the negativity that are coming from relatives, stating that they might cancel. I am very hopeful that this will change, I have been praying about this and do not have a plan B. I spent too much time on this wedding to give up! I will work on plan B if nothing changes a week before the wedding. I am hoping that we can reschedule but what a mess if so, everyone has already scheduled their vacation time at work.

Stay positive ladies:)

I feel so bad for you! I just feel like it's one thing after another with Mexico this year. First, I had people asking me about the drug cartels and violence. Now, I am apparently a swine flu expert. It is just so sad that so much planning and anticipation goes into this and then a pandemic breaks out.

I spent all morning trying to find alternatives. I want a backup plan in case this doesn't clear out.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
