      glad i could provide a few laughs. i was really strong until today (i guess because i didn't think there was any way i'd be effected with my wedding still a whole month away), but i kinda unraveled today and needed to laugh badly.
      Ah, hope you don't think I was being snotty, I've been teaching all day so I was in teacher-Tracy mode. :)

      I keep going back and forth. One minute I'm fine the next I want to cry. Oh well, I think tonight I'll turn off the Internets and settle in for some FI time and concentrate on the joy of the marriage part that comes after all of this. :)

      Don't unravel! I like my Lisa sweater.

LOL)
        Hi :) I actually just sent her an email asking about this! Will let you know what I find out. Now, not so sure about the photographing well in bright sunlight buuuuuutttt..... hahhahaa

        YES, we should ALL take pics like this and share them afterward, we will get a good laugh for sure!

        We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

        We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

          Ladies, I watched the news earlier and the Doctor on the news reported that this is a mild strain of the flu and most people who get it are even fine... Med. facilities in Mexico are not as good as the U.S., from what I hear, and Mexico City's population is huge. Also, I did a whole project on how hygiene can become a big problem in Mexico City because of the filthy unerground sewage system... all that said, I really think this will blow over in a week or so... I was talking to a friend last night about it last night and her 20yr old cousing died in a car accident last week and what she said is right, "you need to put things in perspective and be happy for each day. don't let it get to you too much"..... I wish the best for all of us on the forum!

                This is so crazy that they are all suspending and cancelling flights til JUNE!!! I could understand a couple weeks but over a month, c'mon!!!! I just read on CNN that Mexico City has closed all venues, they are really trying to nip it in the butt. i really don't think suspending flights will help much! I understand that Mexico is the epicenter, but it spread in Mexico over a week and then has leveled out quite a bit. Its already gone across the US and Canada, i personally don't think suspending flights will do any good. i could see to Mexico city, oh I don't know i'm so frustrated w/ all of this!

                Thanks, I appreciate everyones support. This forum is the only thing keeping me going right now. The reason it doesnt look good for May is because there are 26 of us going and no flights have that many free seats. I guess everyone is scrambling and trying to rebook. To make matters worse the company I am travelling with has said absolutely NO REFUNDS, just issuing travel vouchers. If the airline doesnt come up with something I am goingto make it my life mission to ensure no one flies with them again.... so frustrated!

                  Hi kara, we were date twins... and cancelled as well. So devasted, we are looking at other options but not looking good. And a legal wedding is basically out of the question... so sad.

                    Hey Ladies!

                    My wedding is June 15th in Riviera Maya. Although I am also concerned about the swine flu, we just can not panic.

                    My travel agent just came back from CanCun where she and 25 other agents traveled up and down the coast for business meeting with locals. They stayed in numerous resorts, and they are all healthy and fine.

                    Although there is reason for concern, please keep in mind that the media blows things way out of proportion.

                    If you want to feel a little better read the following links:

                    Stayin' Alive: Flu Schmlu

                    The Reluctant Paladin

                    I hope that the brides coming back from Mexico will give us some insight on how everything went, and Im sure they are all having beautiful enjoyable vacations while all of us at home are freaking out.
