    Oh girls, you're just great!! Thank you SO MUCH for your warm and supportive messages! I can't express my appreciation enough!!

    Rachel - You didn't misread. We were scheduled for November. I think the swine flu was an excuse to have us change the wedding to make it more convenient for the in-laws. I also suspect that they may not appreciate nor trust the latin culture. That may sound like a harsh judgement, but I'm pretty sure a fairly accurate one. Thanks so much for the pdf info.

    I know that PV is perfectly safe. In fact, we are going to go there next month for my birthday. My FI has never been, and I know he would love the experience, even if it isn't for our nuptials.

    Kristy- Congrats to you! I would love to hear of your experiences and get information from you. Thanks so much for the offer. I used to live in Ft. Lauderdale and loved going down to Key West and renting a scooter. What a hoot!

    Kstinson - Wow! You had to change 3 WEEKS OUT?! That must have been a crazy ride! And yours is coming up soon! All the best! I look forward to hearing all about it and seeing the pics. Maui is stunning! Unfortunately it's beyond our price range as my parents are also paying for my sister and her family.

    Mrsrhbtobe - I hadn't considered Lake Tahoe. In fact, I've never been. If you would happen to have any info from the wedding you attended there, I think it may be worth investigating. Thanks for the idea. BTW - LOVE your tagline! Oh so true!

    MegaShay - If you happen to have any info or links for info from your cousin's wedding, I would sure appreciate that too. Thanks!

    Autjo - Wow! Pics in Sedona, ceremony in Vegas, and wedding in Mexico! Someone is doin' it up right!! We went to Sedona last year and loved it. I look forward to seeing your pics. Such incredible vistas all around!

    H&F - I haven't actually considered Costa Rica.....I think the FI's family may have the same issues as they did with Mexico, as I think the swine flu was more of a convenient excuse for them. I used to live in CR and LOVE it. It would be another perfect place for a wedding most certainly!

    Again.....thank you all so much for the incredible support. I'll be sure to keep you all updated, and please pass any ideas on to me. As of now, I'm not sure where I should be posting anything. I feel a little bit like an orphan! (but with a loving family - just no home - I guess that doesn't make me an orphan.....just homeless....LOL)

    Very sincerely sending out love, peace, and cyberhugs!

      LaBre, One more thought/idea... I went to a DW in Puerto Rico last fall that was so beautiful. You could get married on the beach there or in the mountains. There are lots of flights and hotels there so maybe that could be an option.

        So sorry to hear that! You tell her to be very careful back home as the infection is worldwide and the media, unfortunately for us just exaggerated the situation in Mexico, it was controlled like no other place in the world; let's take for example the States where it still spreading, but no media will talk about that of course!

        Best of luck with all the new planning!

          I think Key West if you're wanting to stay with the beach theme...but definitely look Vegas over for sure. Best of luck to you!!!

          Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove: O no! it is an ever-fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken... Exert from Shakespeare's...

            So sorry to hear this! We have a couple of family members who already said they don't feel comfortable going even though our wedding isn't until April of 2010!!! That said, your alternatives sound amazing! Key West has always looked fantastic to me and Vegas is always fun! Good luck with everything!

              Any decision yet LaBre? I think that is VERY selfish of your MIL to take away your dream wedding location. But be that as it may - you have plenty of other options. Just make sure you pic your 'runner-up' location based on what you and FI want and not what your MIL wants. I want to slap her.

                That sucks!! I'm so sorry. My future father-in-law recently helicoptered into the Grand Canyon for their wedding. I thought that sounded really cool. I've also heard of people taking an Alaska Cruise and getting married on top of a glacier... just throwin out some ideas!! I hope your new plans will be as exciting as your former plans!

                  I'm sorry hun, I hope you find a place you can love just as much!

                  Or vagas or Key west, or find any ocean or mountans and have a blast!

                    For lack of better terminology: that freaking sucks! I'm so sorry for you!

                    I am planning my wedding in Vallarta, but technically I am already married, as per a very romantic engagement/wedding ceremony in Vegas. So obviously I'm a little biased towards Vegas! Our day was amazing, if I do say so myself... see for yourself! :

                    Proof that you can have an amazing wedding no matter where/when or how much you spend! And with an amazing photographer, you're going to remember the day the way it was captured. This is all a little cliche and corny, but I do believe it! Both as a wedding photographer and past/future bride!

                    Keep us posted!

                      I'm so sorry you are dealing with this kind of situation. I would do what ever is the easiest and less stressful for you, as I think all of your guests (the right-minded ones at least) would be ok with whatever form of communication you offer!!!! Good luck and I hope, going forward, that things go a little more smoothly for you!!!

                      Priscilla :)
