Deadly swine flu virus in Mexico

Recommended Posts

FI and I were reading and talking about this just a few minutes ago... It sound serious yikes! hoewever, it seems to be more focused in Mexico city. Sorry Meagan... I'm Not sure what to think or say.... Not sure what safety precautions you guys can take...

We are flying direct to PV and then To Cancun for the honeymoon, so I'm not sure if it will affect those airports/areas at the time we are flying.


I'm sure what I'm going to start getting tons of call and emails from our guest and I'm not sure how to respond to them, especially to those flying thru Mexico City!


Any other thoughts out there...

The bad news is : it exists and it is in Mexico city


The good news are :

- it's not in the touristical areas - Yucatan or Pacific coast

- there is vaccine and it is efficient.

- all of the American people that got contaminated recovered. This is because there are efficient medicine. If you catch something flu-like, see a doctor immediately and you will be fine

- the odds are really, really, really low that you get this in your stop-over. I was only posting this for people actually travelling to Mexico city. And travelling my kind of travel (ie, I do take the subway, go to popular places, etc)

- make sure to throughly wash your hands often. Have some purell gel or similar with you. Less than 2oz so you can take it in the Mexcan flights (US is 3 oz, Mexico 2oz only).



I'm sure everybody will be fine !

Thanks for the advice! So far all of our guests are remaining calm...they fly directly to Cancun so they aren't too worried! Sounds like we'll just have to be careful during our Mexico City transfer and hope for the best. Good luck to everybody else!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
