Straight from my local airport to cancun - it's only a new flight but generally you can get direct flights from Manchester and London they just added Newcastle but it looks like they've just cancelled it 2.

I'm just sitting waiting to hear anything and checking the site. I should be at work by now but i'm in bed on my laptop still in my jamas lol I must get moving

hug2.gifTo all the girls that have been crying!! I have been crying on and off for two days and finally made the tough decision last night. I am voluntarily choosing to move my wedding. While I am sure much of what is being reported is sensationalized, I can't take any chances. I'm sure many of you are reading the other threads on the piggy flu and may have seen what I wrote, but I'll repeat. My son had a serious case of RSV and pneumonia at 1 month old and was hospitalized for 2 weeks. Because of that, even now at 4 years old, he has low immunity and is suceptible to everything and gets it much worse than others might. As a mother I just can't take that chance, I would hate myself if anything ever happened to him. The decision to move from the resort and location that I have dreamt about for such a long time was not an easy one but it had to be done. So as of today, I have no idea when and where I will be married. I will hopefully know more tomorrow.

Oh girls ... my heart is hurting for you ... seriously, I'm getting teary just thinking about what you Mexico brides must be feeling. After all the planning, preparing and anticipating ...

 

Don't give up though! Get on your TA's butts and see what they can do for you - this is YOUR wedding, YOUR day, YOUR celebration and no idiotic media scare swine flu should stop it!!

 

Airline companies need to compensate as well - usually when a flight is canceled or grounded for any reason they offer alternatives, so there HAS to be an alternative if your airline is refusing to fly to Mexico (for the Canadian and UK girls). You've all paid money, good money, for these destination packages and so have your guests. Regardless of whether or not you paid travel insurance, there HAS to be a way.

 

Just think: The resorts in Mexico also want your business. Imagine how they're suffering?! They want you down there as badly as you want to go ... I'm sure you're sick of hearing it but try and stay positive my May bride girls ... it will all work out ...

 

And for all your non-American girls: If you can, see if you can switch your wedding to a Cuban resort! It's not much farther than Mexico and it's GORGEOUS and usually much more affordable.

 

smile03.gif for you ALL ... I hope your FIs are being supportive and understanding throughout all of this as well ... and know that all your BDWers are here for you always!!!!!

That's just horrible ... I seriously don't know how you, or any of the other May brides are dealing with it all ... I'd be a complete lunatic at this point. I mean, I pretty much am already, but if that bloody pig virus was in Cuba too I'd be having a hairy fit on a daily, no hourly basis.

You're strong than I am, that's for sure!

You said the flight restrictions are being lifted a few days before you leave, right?

A few hours ago I read a news story online that said the infection had "stabilized" in Mexico which should be a good thing ...

We don't know yet thats the problem. They are only saying no flights until the 8th they will extend it if the FO doesn't drop the ban.

knowing my luck they'll make a decision on the 9th when its too late to leave on the 11th lol

Have you considered moving the wedding to DR, Cuba, Jamaica? I'm sure your TA could do something ... there must be plenty of people doing this right now and resorts are probably doing what they can to accommodate ... I know it would suck to change your dream locale ... but if it means having a wedding ... maybe it's a good option to look at!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
