      my canceled mexico wedding has turned out happy as well. it is now in punta cana at the same resort chain so bahia principe bavaro instead of tulum now. our guests have had to pay an extra $300-500 to fly from where ever they are in canada to toronto so we can get the package to punta cana.

      i think cuz we're legally getting married this weekend it makes getting a wedding there easier cuz it's just a renewal of vows. still leaving the same date and getting the same wedding date. other mexico brides, maybe this is a different location option?

      surprisingly there might only be 4 or 6 people out of 26 that won't be able to make it. everyone else has fronted the extra money and will still be there for my wedding. i love my family and friends!! finally i can stop crying. now i can go back to being stressed cuz i have a week to finalize my wedding stuff.

            nyssa that's amazing!!! i am so happy for you ... especially in this economy, for people to just drop hundreds of extra dollars to be there for you is a true testament of how much you and FI are loved!!! you must be thrilled!

            dreams has offered switch to dominican republic too (as has moon palace), but their resorts are packed and wedding dates pretty booked up ... flights are pretty outrageously priced too, so i have a feeling i'd lose a LOT of guests. i'm just crossing my fingers that we won't actually need to look into punta cana any further.

                I'm SO happy for all you Mex brides - see ... things are working out!!!!
                Makes me want to do the bunny dance:
                its midnight where i am.. and that means that i officially have one week until im a MRS!! i cant believe that its this close... i never thought it would come up so fast.. and now here it is.. one week left of singleton and then good riddance!
                OMG you're so close!!!!! I can't believe we leave in a week (we're flying out on your wedding day! I'll be thinking of you on the flight for sure!!). Isn't it a crazy feeling I don't know what's going to be going through my head next Tuesday .............

                  Harty, I saw you post somewhere (I'm thinking the swine thread) that St. Lucia may be your back-up plan. Need any information or help? I'd love to finally be able to help someone else as there are so few St. Lucia brides on BDW.

                  Wait, a minute. If you keep your same wedding date, we will probably be there at the same time! I arrive May 17th.

                      We had to cancel our Cancun wedding last minute as well but were able to get flights (after hours on the phone) and rooms at the Riu in Paradiuse Island Bahamas. So i am still disappointed a bit but it looks like the drama is over (hopefully) and i may be able to start looking forward to this. i guess i better- we leave on sunday!!!! Good luck to all the other "Swune Flu Birdes"!!
