    So yesterday was a big day! I ordered the invitations, booked our band, ordered my shoes, and went bustier shopping. I have my fitting on May 2nd, so need to find the right bustier. So for now...I think I am good. Woo! It is coming quick!

      Hey Ladies!

      I'm a July bride too! We are getting sooooo close!!!

      My dress came in two days ago and I got to go try it on yesterday! Luckily, I don't think I'll need too many alterations! I also ordered my shoes. I really want a birdcage veil - I found a shop down in IL that I think will have plenty to try on!

      I'm working on a pre-trip brochure for all of my guests this weekend so they will know when their final payments are due, what activities are available at the resort, the wedding weekend schedule, and what to expect at customs!

      I'm nervous about customs! I was just reading all these threads about needing receipts for OOT bags and stuff and EEK!

      Sooo close...I'm starting to freak out a little bit!!! I need to sit down and do a for sure to do list!!!

                  Hey July Mexico Brides. I realize we are two months give or take out and there is another site for the swine talk..but I thought I would see how you guys are taking this info and if you think it will affect our July weddings specifically?

                  I wasn't too worried up until today when it got to a level 5 warning. I feel a little reassured that our flights wont get canceled since Obama said not to close to borders...but just wanted to get your perspectives since we are 2 months or so out...which could be good for it to all blow over. But it is hard not knowing. Anyone else hate the media? lol


                  Oh on a positive notes, I am mailing my boarding pass invites in the next week! And I have my dress fitting on next week! So these things keep me happy.

                    Well, I got my first guest cancellation today, saying that his mom was crying on the phone begging him not to go (geez, it's not SARS people!). I emailed the person and suggested to wait and see, and his girlfriend agreed. That made me feel better for now. But it's frustrating that I can't put down the deposit for the menus and the ruins trip, etc. knowing that there's a small possibility that my day will be affected. The next couple of months should be the most fun in planning all the details!
                    Right now, I just have to hang on tight and ride it out.

                      That is hard! My FBIL's wife is prego, and he doesn't want her to go down. And she is so cute, she says, "but I am in the wedding!" Yeah, but I totally understand her concerns.

                      yep, it is just a waiting game right now...
