    Ditto... I'm sure we'll lost a few people as well, but at this point I don't have the strenght to deal with changing things.

    My heart goes out the ladies in Canada that were forced to changed their plans... this whole situation is... Please keep us posted on what you all decide to do. BIG HUG to all.

      I am so mad right now!!! I am upset/furious! First of all I found out that about 8 people had backed out of my RM wedding in 3 months because of the swine or whatever its called flu (we don't have that many going as is). Three months away!!!! Not only that, one of the guests is my only brother and his bitch of a wife that I can't stand. I really want my brother and cousin to be there and all of the ones that canceled said that if I move it somewhere else that is safe from the swine flu, they will come. Soooo after crying, constantly staying on the computer searching, FI and I decided to change our wedding to Jamaica. While I was on the phone with my TA this morning telling her about our possible switch and getting rates I said don't worry about my best friend and her husband-that I will talk to them about everything today and let them know about the switch myself instead of letting the TA call them. Well, the TA then informed me that my friend and her husband have called and talked to her, but NEVER BOOKED. Not even $1. These are friends that have LIED to us. They said that they booked months ago and I never checked up on it because I believed them. They called Tyler and I the day they "booked" and said that they were soooo excited and they had just dropped off the money and fully paid. They lied to us. I am so sad. I was wondering why my friend hadn't called me freaked out yet (she is a panic type person)-it is because they never booked. I am speechless. Okay getting back to my brother and wife and close cousin and her husband....they said that they would go ANYWHERE-but just not Mexico. I spent all that time and energy and tears and decided on Jamaica and my mom called and told them the good news and my SIL said that they are NOT GOING AT ALL. That Jamaica is "dirty" and "she has never heard anything good about it" -her words not mine. I am beyond pissed. She told my mom that if we move it to Florida that they will go (they aren't from Florida, i guess that is just where she picked for me to have my own wedding). WTF!!! She also stupidly said that Jamaica "will be hit by a hurricane along with Cuba" WTF? Where does she think Florida is? Does she think its immune from hurricanes! Whoever gave her two degrees is retarded. So them. I don't even care anymore. My wonderful parents, sister, and Tyler's wonderful parents and brother are going to Jamaica in all our glory!! I don't care who is there! Screw the liars and negative Nancy's! Thanks for listening. My eyes are red from tears and it feels so good to vent to y'all.

        Well I am getting married May 23, 2009 in Cabo and we will be there come hell or high water. the "FLU" is not going to keep me from having the best day of my life. The media has blown this all out of proportion. Sure it should be casue for concern, take a few extra precations, hell take some Tamiflu with you.

        We will be there as long as we can get there - I think all of our guests are on board too and no one is worried enough to call the trip off. Back up plan - Vegas baby!

        Just remember - we will all be just as married 10 years from now as we would be if this all hadn't come about. And will have a great story to tell - Swine Flu ruined/almost ruined/postponed our wedding! Try to keep the humor alive.... :) It will all be ok...

        The joke going around is " my something blue" can be my baby blue surgical mask! :) Actually goes quite well with the decor ...
        XOXO LAUREN

          I actually want to cry for all of you girls who have spent these past long months in preparation, only to have this happen.

          For anyone it's affecting, my heart goes out to you. You shouldn't have the greatest moment of your life tarnished by this outbreak. I'm sorry for guests jumping the gun and panicking, sorry for lost monies and so very sorry for all of the confusion and headache it's causing you all.

          I sincerely hope all of you are able to come up with a viable Plan B that still gives you your dream wedding. Just remember, you're still marrying your guy....hang tight to that and HIM and you'll get through this.

          Feeling really blessed right now that the only thing we're having to do is hold off on sending out our STD's. We figure it's a bad time to even ask anyone to think about going to Mexico with all the paranoia.

            This is craziness. UGH. I truly do feel sorry for those having issues with planes, family and friends, everything. I couldn't imagine.

            And I don't understand those that are months out and cancelling over it.

            This is nuts.

              **HUGE HUGS** Those are not friends if they out right lied about everything and pretended that they booked.

              And the SIL just seems to be looking for any excuse to get out of it.

              Just remember everything that they are all doing... karma will come bite them in the butt.

                Just found this that the CDC released. The facts may help ease people's concerns. Take a read. I know it helped me...........
