      Wow we thought this whole thing was gonig to blow over! It seem to be dying down. Then I get a call from my travel agent today saying that our flight/trip is cancelled!!! Now we have to relocate to the Dominican, Cuba, or Jamaica!!!! So annoying!

      We are looking to share a photographer during the week of June 6th to June 12th in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

          Seriously, this air transat need to chill the F out... The media is CRAZY if we haven't all figured that one out yet... maybe now Sine Flu will disappear since John and Kate are on the outs... give me a break... seems to be what happened right?

            Yesterday it was confirmed that my school district has a case of H1N1 flu. Now someone in my living area has or had it (meaning I can get it at the grocery store) and someone in my district (meaning I can get it at work) BUT no one in the Riviera Maya has it..hmmmm!

Can't have a wedding without a groom... :) Wowza, that was a rough couple of weeks! Thanks for all of your support ladies!
              That is terrific news!!! So happy for you!!!

              To the June, July & August brides... FINGERS CROSSED! I can't believe they are continuing to cancel trips

                I was reading on the WHO site today that the USA actually has more cases of H1N1 than Mexico...yet no one has canceled flights to the US? I hope this goes away soon because if my wedding gets canceled twice I will actually cry this time...it really sucks to be unsure that you are getting married!

                  O.K!!! OFFICIALLY: The SWINE FLU can kiss my @$$!!!!!!! We we're supposed to leave for our resort visit on Tuesday, May 12. My FI just got off the phone with Mexicana AIR. Our flight has been cancelled due to the STINKIN' SWINE FLU!!! They said that we have to wait til Monday before we should do anything. They said we might be able to get a flight on Monday, it just depends if there are enough passengers on the plane to make the trip!! We have all these appointments with majority of all our vendors, not to mention, it was like pulling teeth to try to coordinate!!

                  *sigh* I need a drink!

                    Not much to complain about, but we were supposed to arrive at 10am and now we are arriving at 12:45pm. The canceled our connecting flight from MIA to CUN so now we have a 3 hour layover , but hey, at least I'm still going!
                    19 adults/3 children with flights booked! 10 rooms booked!

                      I'm sorry i'm joining this thread so late. I am supposed to be getting married on June 3rd and it looks like they just canceled our flights to Mexico! Air Transat just extended their cancelations to June 19th! WHAT THE HECK! Its the frickin flu! over 4000 Cdns die every year from the flu and there have been 50 worldwide!!!! Why are they doing this!!! We now have to try to move our destination elsewhere - in a matter of days. It took weeks to put this wedding together and now i have to slap something else together! life is unfair!!! I hope not to many other brides are going through this! This is a nightmare!
                      The hotel said they will refund our deposit but I signed a contract with my photographer and paid a stinkin lot of money up front that was non-refundable!!! This sucks!
