    How's everyone doing? Everyone hanging in there?

    I woke up this morning and said to FI, "It's May! Now hug me before I start freaking out!"

      Hey ladies ! So I thought I would give you a quick update ! Here everything is awesome as there are no problems here in Playa del Carmen (whereas there are problems in Houston so I'm actually better off here !)

      10 of my guests have cancelled so we are down to 22. This is still a party ! We are getting married tomorrow as planned ! And I will have to stay away from the office for 72 hours when I get back.

      My parents were going to Cuba afterwards but had to cancel. Apparently all airports are closed in Cuba right now (which sounds strange to me but this is what I heard). And my brother are going to have to stay in quarantine for 7 days when they come back to Singapore... 7 days at home !!!

      Other than that, everything is fine. I hope the archeological sites reopen next week when we're on honeymoon... otherwise we might shorten it maybe. Did not decide on this yet.

        That's amazing Ayita - I am SO happy for you ... and you're going to be a Mrs tomorrow!!!!!!!!



        As for the airports being closed in Cuba ... don't wanna freak out any of the other Cuban brides ... they aren't COMPLETELY closed, they just banned all flights to and from Mexico!

          Ayita: I'm so happy to hear that you made it to the RM and that all is well. Enjoy your days and can't wait to see all your beautiful pics when you return.

          Have a wonderful time!

              I have ALMOSt good news. Hopefully by tonight I will be sure but we are in the process of moving to Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana!!!! I am finally a little happy again but trying not to get my hopes too high incase something doesn't work out. Figuring out how to get my photographer there from Texas was hell, but I did the leg work, not my TA, and I found a solution. I have to shell out more money as do my guests, but everyone is onboard and told me that wherever I am is where they will be. Luckily we had a small group. And, luckily the resort had my date. I have to send my deposit but I don't want to do it till the TA says that everyones booking has been successfully switched. I will keep you ladies posted.

                that's amazing! *crosses fingers* ... they didn't have my date, and my TA seems to think moving everyone will be "impossible" anyway ... i think she just doesn't want to work very hard.

                to be perfectly honest, i have to admit i think the dreams resorts in punta cana are actually "prettier" than the ones in cancun/riviera maya. so while it does suck beyond measure to move everything ... it could definitely be worse. best of luck!

                  so after those mo fo's at usa 3000 cancelled all our flights we actually rebooked EVERYONE on american airlines and EVERYONE has the original dates AND WE GOT APPLE VACATION to waive all the fees and upgrade us to american airlines for FREE! WHOOOO F-ING HOOOOO!!!! I am still anticipating that swarm of locus and hurricane to hit mexico so I am stock piling bug spray and water rafts LOL! At this point all that can go wrong will so I am anticipating anything and everything!!! If any of you are flying american airlines keep me posted of any cancellations!!! After this catrostophe my fi mother said she's cancelling/not going (and did) because she JUST DECIDED SHE DOESN'T APPROVE of her son getting married in MEXICO (mind you we asked her 2 years ago before we said anything to anyone and she said she was down) and who does this a week before we leave WTF!?!? SO after a very nice conversation between me and her (sarcasm)- she changed her mind. This has been one hella week! SO IF any of you have like a ritual of sacrificng a goat or pig or whatever for LUCK please let me know, I can't take no more drama - on the real!
