    Most of our own friends are still planning on coming unless they start canceling flights. As long as our close friends and parents are there that's all we care about.

    I am planning on taking TamiFlu with me in case any of my guests come down with the flu. TamiFlu is what they are using in the US to treat the swine flu and any regual flu.

    Here is a great article that CNN just posted. Regular flu has killed thousands since January: Regular flu has killed thousands since January - CNN.com

    Since January, more than 13,000 have died of complications from seasonal flu
    Worldwide annual death from the flu estimated between 250,000 and 500,000

    I was relieved and livid after I read the article. The media needs to calm down. It's a good idea to forward this article to anyone that's buying into the swine flu craze.

    Crossing my fingers this will all blow over!
    I'm with you! All my guests are still happy to come too. We will be fine!

            That's great that you aren't worried! I'm sure you'll have a beautiful wedding.
            If you wanted to get re-routed so you don't stop in Mexico City, most airlines are allowing passengers to do so at no extra cost.

                Gail - Some of our guests are getting that to. Most of them are saying that if they have any signs of the flu not to come in. Some have even got the email saying that the company is recommending them not to travel to Mexico. Some are choosing to listen...some aren't. This is so ridiculous...don't they understand that by now it's just as likely that someone get the SF from a crowded mall in Texas than they are at an airport in Mexico?!?!

                  People are so ignorant and just get hyped by the media, everyone needs to do research!!! The flu virus kills 36000+ people a year here in USA, the H1N1 virus (swine flu) has only killed one person. You do the math... it is like we are living in the 40's listening to Nazi propaganda.

                      There are alot of girls experiencing this. I know a few girls have changed their location or rescheduled just because of this. There guests weren't willing to miss a couple extra weeks of work.
