    My name is Michelle Connell and I'm getting married next Saturday, May 9th at the Royal Playa del Carmen. I'm not sure how I haven't found this site until now, but I need all the help I can get. The swine flu is freaking ALL of my guests out and I don't know what to do. We are leaving a week from tomorrow. Any suggestions?

    Thank you!

      Congratulations Michelle and welcome to the forums! The Royal is a beautiful resort... you will love it.
      As for the flu here... it has really not been reported in this area and seems to be in a dense populations. Nothing will really make you or your guests feel better. Stay clean and take the normal preventative measures you normally would. This is something you can not control and I really don't think is as bad as the media machine is making it. Im not saying its nothing... but the media has a way of putting a spin on anything and loves to the keep the population at a state of panic.
      Best of luck

        Moments - Thanks for the PDC update. I am not too worried myself, but our guests who have kids are worried they could pick up something and bring it back. I just got off with the CDC (by recommendation of my doctor) and she said that a wedding is considered essential travel and do not recommend for us to cancel. I'll leave my guests to make the best decision for them and their family. A lot can change in a week! >fingers crossed<

        Megan - I have read all through that thread...thanks!

        Abbie - I'll definitely keep you all posted upon my return!

        Thanks again,

              Welcome and congrats, Michelle!

              I have a wedding in Mexico on May 16th, and I'm not worried about getting the flu. The media does tend to sensationalize things like this.

              Have fun!

              Best wishes,

                  Welcome to the forum! The Swine flu is blown out of proportion, relax and enjoy your wedding! Focus on calming down your guests, present them with facts and tell them not to worry.
