    Hello! It's been SO long since I've been on the forum, mostly because it's still a little painful to remember the wedding that could have been!

    My DH and I were supposed to be married at the Royal PDC last May 7th. Three days before we were to leave, Swine Flu hysteria broke out, and our entire trip, flights, everything...all cancelled. (Our first trip to Mexico was also cancelled due to a hurricane...so this was our second kick at the can)!

    We had planned an At Home Reception in Alberta upon our return from Mexico (which was scheduled to be the long weekend in May)...thank goodness we did that...as not only would we NEVER have been able to book anything for the long weekend that late in the game, but...it gave my mom the opportunity to find a J.P. and have us married in front of the 150 guests we had invited...something we had not afforded ourselves with the small 10 person guest list that was to attend in Mexico.

    Anyways...9 months later...we're still recovering from the "loss" of that day we had spent so much time planning. Don't get me wrong, the wedding in Alberta turned out lovely, and ultimately, I still got the guy, so its all good...

    Its just...we've always felt like ... we missed out on something. I'm not sure if that makes us selfish or what...but...

    Wow...ALLLLLL that to say...HERE we are today. My husband and I are just a few months away from our first wedding anniversary, and he is taking me to Mexico!!! Third times a charm right?!

    Not the same resort, but...the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya! We leave April 14th and we plan on making the absolute MOST out of this trip!

    I just...wanted to tell someone! haha...
    I'm so excited!!!!


    Just in case...if you or someone you know if planning a trip to this resort, during this time, you may want to advise them to ... go another week! LOL

    Just kidding...I don't believe in curses...I don't believe in curses!!

          I hope your vacation goes great! Like you said, third times a charm!!!

          I would be sad too if I didn't get the wedding I was planning for so long. Maybe in a few years you guys can renew your vows and have the wedding you planned.
