    I found this article and thought I would share. It talks about whether or not the US should close the border.

    Senators urge more aggressive swine flu screening - USATODAY.com

      Summer I know all about pregnancy hormones. I'd wait on invites you have PLENTY of time. Don't even think about it! Seriously! This is the flu and I GUARANTEE it will be way over by December. I definitely understand you have a 6 month and that is definitely a concern but this flu is everywhere. I think I'm more likely to get it at home than I am in the Riviera!!! We have more cases closer to me now at home than the closest case to the Riviera. Definitely take care of little one through this.

      My best advice for you, and I'm being dead serious, is DON'T OPEN THIS THREAD AGAIN!!! Unless its still up and going in September! I really think this thread is so depressing on how much this flu has affected mexico brides. And w/ your hormones will only cause you to stress and worry. With your wedding being sooo far out you do not need to be worrying about this, especially since you're about to pop girl!

        HAHAHA god love him.....
        OMG!!!!
        To MarieSam and all the BDW brides who have booked photo and/or video with us (PlayaWeddings). We're going to do backflips to make sure you get the best coverage for your wedding day. We're going to put extra effort into all of our weddings. We'll send extra copies of the DVDs so you have a great wedding video to give to anyone who decides not to come.

        I think I can speak for all the vendors in the Riviera Maya. You can expect extra special attention and "above-and-beyond" service from all of us down in the Riviera Maya. I can promise it for all our PlayaWedding clients.

        KUDDOS TO YOU!!!!! I think this is a FANTASTIC attitude! I love it! Thanks for bringing some bright light to the situation, I know your brides will thank you!!! I hope if we continue on with our wedding that the people we work with will be half as nice and wonderful as you.
        ladies - i just wanted to post and let you all know that when i was planning my wedding i had to deal with a similar situation - my wedding location was cancelled due to reasons out of my control and we had to scramble and re-plan, re-book and re-do almost everything

        here is the thread
        By the way, I've been trying to stay strong throughout this whole fiasco. So far we've only lost one couple and a toddler out of 56 guests. Everyone else is waiting until Sunday to make a final decision on canceling. I just got an email from a friend of a friend that is at the Royal now. She is freaking out since Canada implemented their travel ban. Apparently they are sending flights to pick everyone up and if they're not out by May 4th they may be stuck in Mexico until June. What if the US does this? I'm not necessarily worried about catching the SF, but I am worried about being quarantined in Mexico. I hope the US would do the same thing and give us a few days to get out. I mean, they have news in Mexico so we can stay updated. Any thoughts?
        I am also afraid of being quarantined, because of my previous Lyme symptoms (which include random fevers). I'm anxiously awaiting my very first Lyme visit with a new specialist... boy is he going to have his hands full with ME! And FI is going with me. Luckily they've reserved 2-3 hrs for us... they're SO gonna need it! lmao



        Can we the Swine Flu? Media!

        If we go on with our wedding I want to make some sort of cute t-shirts with a smart/clever saying on them for our guests!

        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!

            Oh, and also - I just decided I'm going to go make a "Visionary Board" RIGHT NOW! I'm putting out good thoughts, and sealing them on paper/in writing!

            I encourage you all to do the same! Get a big poster board, markers and lots of magazines and photos. Cut out pics of the beautiful sun, beach, your hotel, location, you and your FI, your families/friends, etc. Maybe this will help us all to get through this and REALLY channel our positive energy!!

            WHO'S WITH ME!?



            *Edit* Go here if you want to do this challenge, and post your own Visionary Boards!

              My mom does this and she swears by it!! I think that it is a great idea. Oprah even said that she does it.

                  i'm thinking ours will say something like, "the stars aligned, hell froze over, pigs flu, and tom & lisa got married -- MEXICO 2009" ... it's a running (not so funny) joke that my parents have said numerous times "we NEVER thought YOU would get married" (kinda like tula in my big fat greek wedding ... i AM 36 years old already and never married, so i get it, but geez) ... so the "pigs flu" thing kinda works in my case, LOL.

                  that is, IF we're able to go thru with things as planned. our plan B is to move to dominican republic, but 2 of the 3 dreams resorts there have already stated that my wedding date is unavailable (would have to be that day or next day for civil ceremony).

                    hi ladies - I'm cautiously feeling a little more optimistic today...hopefully we've made the turn for the better! One of the DWF girls I became friends with who is getting married at same resort (Isla Mujers Palace) this Saturday and left a couple days ago. I just heard from our WC and she made it down (with all her guests) and everything is just fine and they're having a blast. I saw some pics of their welcome cocktail party and looks like they don't have a care in the world. Great news for a change!!
