          Fox News -- it is said WHO will update facts on their website later today. It's been a breaking newsflash. The current anchor/analyst is making me feel better and saying this is being all blown out of proportion and creating panic, but God I can't help but to worry. When I open Yahoo and the head story is "US advises against travel to Mexico" it makes my heart sink.

          I just sent out an email to our guests and will post it on here in a sec should anyone want to use it, or at least give you guys some ideas.

          *HUGS* to all my fellow Mexico brides -- lots of positive energy and prayers that this will all fizzle out soon and this will all be blown smoke in the coming days.

            First of all, they are a level 4-NOT 6. I am sitting in Mexico watching CNN.
            We just got down here this afternoon-as far as we could tell, everything was normal. Business is as usual-saw a wedding this afternoon.

              My wife has been reading the local newspapers in Spanish online, from the Riviera Maya area. There are no confirmed cases there at this time. They tested 22 people with flu symptoms, ruled out 15 cases and 7 are still pending results. They have convened a meeting of government and health officials in the State capitol for 9PM to make decisions on what measures and restrictions they will have for this area. We'll read the papers tomorrow morning and post any new news. We also heard that United is changing tickets to Mexico City to Cancun, which suggests that the Cancun area is still considered safe.

                Thank you. This settles me down somewhat. I'm so sad right now too. I'm a May bride and have so been loking forward to this wedding; not just for me but for all my guests too. I'm praying too; fro all Summer brides .

                  I usually have nothing but positive comments.... but as some of you know I've had a horrible month and now this!!!

                  I'm suppose to be working, but I can't concentrate... I've been reading all your comments for a few days now and I'm not sure what to say....

                  Lets hope for the best chicas!

                    Hi Ladies...I'm throwing my crying towel in. This is such a hard time! I'm really scared and confused about the entire situation. I only have us and two guests so rescheduling is doable if we have to. My heart goes out to those May brides who have many guests to contend with. My heart also goes out to those Mexican families who are struggling with this illness, which seems to be hitting them harder than the US victims.

                    I am going to sit tight, pray and make a decision by Friday. (Oh yes, did I mention cry? probably more of that too)
                    My pride and joy, son Nick:

                      The calls are coming in! I was out of town on a girls weekend and didn't really begin to hear about this till today. We have had lots of people call us including one guest coming from Trinidad.

                      We called our travel agent and he said that we are still pretty far out (6 weeks) and that TYPICALLY if travel gets banned or highly discourage, the travel companies step up and offer a travel voucher or refund. He did stress that this is an optional thing and that the companies do NOT have to do this. Also he said the typical insurance does not cover this.

                      Is all that consistent with what most of you are hearing? We have guest traveling with Expedia, applevacations, and funjet.
