Tylersgirl, I am so happy you are going forward with your original plans! Your wedding will be beautiful and the wedding of your dreams! Minus a very stupid SIL! I will bet you money that in the end your brother and SIL will be there at the wedding! Your SIL will be SOOO jealous because you had such a fabulous destination wedding!

I think I can speak for all the vendors in the Riviera Maya. You can expect extra special attention and "above-and-beyond" service from all of us down in the Riviera Maya. I can promise it for all our PlayaWedding clients.
I think that's the best thing I've heard all week ~ it's like beautiful music to my ears! cheesy.gif Finally a day that starts off on a good note!!!! Thank you Paul and the entire Playa Weddings crew.

I am crossing my fingers and toes that things get better soon not only for myself but also for all the many brides on BDW so that we can all continue on with our original plans without any worries. And I truly hope that that Mexico as well as the rest of the world will soon go back to normalcy, and this horrible episode of panic and uncertainty will soon become a distant memory. humble.gif

Yes, some people have canceled weddings that are 2-3 months out but that is because they have had important guests cancel/hardly any guests etc. and it isn't the wedding they have planned to have, etc. Whether brides are forced to cancel or whether they feel like they need to cancel on their own-both are sad! Everyone has different circumstances and I wish everyone the best no matter what they decide to do. smile03.gif

Hi Everyone

 

Im joining the no longer getting married in mexico club :-( Our wedding was suppose to be next week adn with half our guests (all family and close friends) coming from Europe and Israel - they all had to cancel. One of our groomsmen cancelled and three other guests told us their jobs wont let them back for 2 weeks if they go to mexico. This is all horrible timing and trust me if my wedding was 3 weeks out or more I dont think id even consider canceling. This breaks my heart...but for us its really important to have our family and friends there. We are now looking into a plan B somewhere in CA (where FI and I live) - ideally in June. I have no idea how Im suppose to plan a wedding in a month when this one took me over a year.

 

I do want to say though that THANK GOD for this forum! Its so nice to have a place i can be honest and where ppl know where I am coming from and get so much support.

 

The hardest part of this is knowing that it didnt have to be this way and that its totally been blown out of proportion. I mean if it was something super serious Id be the first one to cancel - but it just sucks that our wedding got ruined for something that in my opinion should not have been such a big deal.

 

As its been said before to all the brides that move forward with their Mexico weddings i know it will be amazing!!! (and im super jealous)

 

For all of us who have a new "destination" happy planning...

Yael- I am so sorry about this. I understand your decision, but it still stinks that you will not be in Mexico. I stinks that the europe has equally sensationalized the H1N1 flu as much as the americans did.

Is there going to be a lot of backlash that we're irresponsible for doing this? I hope not. I think a lot of people out there (especially my guests) know that the media is blowing this way out of proportion...
I do not this you're being irresponsible at all! Like another bride said, way to say FU to the swine flu!! Just be responsible when you're down there and everyone will be fine.

Yael - I'm so sorry to hear that you had to cancel. My thoughts are with you and all the other brides going through the same thing.smile03.gif

ladies - i just wanted to post and let you all know that when i was planning my wedding i had to deal with a similar situation - my wedding location was cancelled due to reasons out of my control and we had to scramble and re-plan, re-book and re-do almost everything

 

here is the thread http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t17979

 

while it was VERY shocking and upsetting - it only took a couple of hours before DH and I realized that everything happens for a reason and it was not the end of the world - that whatever we wound up planning / finding would probably be even better (and it was) and the way it was meant to be.

 

i know that while you are going through this it is hard to keep perspective but i hope i can serve as a reminder that what really matters here is how you and your FI get through this -as a team, a couple, a partnership. and that as hard as it may seem right now, don't let the bitterness or anger take over - the better your attitude is, the more good things will come to you!

 

xoxo

alyssa

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
