      I just wanted to share a more positive outlook/experience. My wedding is May 30th and none of my guests (45 people) are panicked or thinking of cancelling. The feeling is everything will be sorted out soon and it has been way overblown, people just need to be careful. At the end of the day it is the flu, no one is going through Mexico City, and there are no reported cases in Cabo. You can catch the flu from anywhere. Anyways, just trying to urge others not to panic... though I completely understand!! Hang in there everyone. For those brides that are getting married this week, though, I feel so bad you have to deal with this - I wish you the very best!!

        Honestly, maybe I am sounding naive and insensitive but if it was me I would put a mask on for the flight and I'd be there in a second! I mean really, it's a flu, not a nuclear attack. I'm sure way less than 1% of the population will end up contracting it. And 99% of those who contract it will probably just be sick for a few days and then be fine. It would not stop me from attending somebody else's wedding. I think only people with weak immune systems (children, seniors, anyone who already has pre-existing medical conditions) should be concerned.

        Perhaps I am being naive but that is my opinion.

          We are getting married on May 18, 2009 but we are planning on leaving May 12th!! I am freaking out!! Not sure what we are going to do yet. I think we are going to wait a couple days and see what happens! But i know now they are advising against travel to Mexico. I am just soooo stressed out about all of this!! I just dont think we are going to be able to get our money back. We paid for our close family and friends for their accomidations so we are most likely going to be out all that money!! I just dont know what to think!

            Our wedding is scheduled for 5/23 in Cabo. We have also been inundated with calls/emails from our guests. Luckily, everyone seems willing to wait and see what this becomes. We still have 3 weeks until departure. The news tends to sensationalize stories like this. Still keeping fingers crossed.

              Hello PV Brides,

              Is anyone concerned about traveling to Mexico due to the swine flu outbreak? My wedding is in PV on June 1, 2009 and we are all becoming concerned even though there have been no reported cases in PV yet. My fingers are crossed that this does not affect my wedding in anyway....

                      Hey Ladies,

                      Just wanted to let you know that for those with weddings this week & upcoming month I'm thinking of you! Hopefully, things will blow over soon.

                      I'm so sorry for all the added stress and worry this has caused.
