First, Blkatz, I am so terribly sorry, my heart goes out to you both. If you are capable of still marrying while there, I would continue with the ceremony. Please let us know what we can do for you. I know we are all miles a part, but know that you have positive vibes and thoughts coming to you.
We are scheduled to fly out on June 10th, and I have received a call from one guest, and the other person a little on edge is my FMIL. I'm going to send an email out to all guests tonight to try and ease any potential stress from the media.
I believe that everything is going to work it's way out. The drug issue was first, and now since this flu thing happened I haven't heard a word of the drug violence. Yes, the flu situation is reality, and yes it is bad in the way that the media is portraying it. And yes, WHO has issued a level 4 due to the reality of certain areas the flu has surfaced.
I've decided to stay positive, and think positive. After all what else am I going to do but make myself sick...again.
Let's all be in this positive thought process together. Much love to all the Mexico girls on here - Man, we have been through a lot!

I personally am not concerned about the swine flu I would go. Although if all of my guests were going to cancel, I would change locations. My only concern is travel restrictions

I've been thinking about you a lot. I hope you're OK.

Right now, we are just playing the waiting game to see what happens. If we do have to postpone/cancel, I think we'll just move it to this winter. To be honest, I don't really want to put together another trip quickly -- I'm tired. FI and I will probably just check into a resort in the US, take it easy and go from there.
Here is my letter. Thanks to everyone who shared!

Blkatz- I am so sorry. Please let us know if there's anything we can do and let us know what you decide. I really am sorry, that's horrible!
