We basically share the same stance! GOOD LUCK chica! So sorry to hear about your MOH having to cancel but it sounds like it may be because she has a child, which I understand... still sorry though
Oh and I think our t-shirts will read
"Pigs Flu (flew), and Jaime & Martin got married.
May 24th, 2009 at Las Caletas
And YOU were there!"
... or something like that... doesn't quite make sense yet...

Been reading this thread all week for support and finally registered. My FI and I are supposed to get married May 9 in Cabo and are so torn about what to do. We have 55 people confirmed - 6 have canceled, and most have said that they still want to go - although some I know are hesitant but trying their best to support us. This thread has been a lot of help all week, but I still just don't know what to do. My gut says go, everything will be fine, but i am worried that if we do we are making an irresponsible decision. If everyone wants to go, should we still go?
Anyways, good luck to you all, and I hope everything works out for us (I'm a groom BTW!)

Mr. & Mrs. Reid
All my life, I prayed for someone like you... and I thank God that I finally found you!

You are not being irresponsible. It's not like you are forcing people to go against their will. They are going because they want to! Besides, I don't believe there are any cases even close to Cabo so I'm sure you will be fine and you will have an AMAZING wedding! I bet you get down there and forget all about the stupid swine flu : ) Go for it!

- There are currently more cases here in Los Angeles / SoCal than there are in Cabo (based on what I heard from my WC this morning).
- The LA Times article today highlights that this flu strain seems to be milder than the seasonal flu (again, based on what we know about it thus far).
- CNN highlights that the danger from seasonal flu is much greater than that of SW
Therefore the risk *seems* to be the normal risk one would take when one travels anywhere. That said, things could change for the worse (gulp) or get better (please).
My FI and I have decided that WE are comfortable "taking the risk". Our family feels the same. We plan to survey our guests this weekend. And although we recognize we may lose some guests, if our "core" group of guests feels the same, then we will continue forward. Our belief is that our guests can make their own risk assessment – which is a personal decision. If they decide to come, it will be based on that personal decision.
I hope this helps – if you DO go – please come back to this forum and post about your experience. It’s really helped me to hear from brides/grooms who are in Mexico now!

I have gotten a million phone calls and texts saying what are we gonna do and cant cant go there and blah blah blah....I just don't understand how calling me and complaining is supposed to fix anything.. all it does is upset me. My fiance' thinks its media hype and its all gonna be over soon and whoever wants to back out let them. The only thing he doesnt get is that NO ONE wants to go anymore not even our parents. I really do believe that the media is making it a lot worse then it is (not that its not serious). I mean 36,000 people died in the US last year from the FLU. Anyways i am so over everyone calling me over the swine flu that i could just scream!!
I think you should just wait it out. I'm sure once the media starts covering something else the whole thing will blow over and your family will come around. Hang in there!
