    My fiancé is about to cancel our wedding in November in Puerto Rico because of the out break there. I think, it it's going to get worse, then we're not much safer in Texas versus there, but I think we're making a rash decision.

    Help!

      @TXZach I like that you are saying "I think we're making a rash decision" the media is powerful, and things always look worse than they already are.  unless you dont here from a person who is currently living in Puerto Rico or who just traveled there.its going to be difficult for you to convince him. maybe advice him to wait for 1 month more and then decide.

       

      Goodluck

        I lost two guests today to Zika.  (Pregnant).  It's frustrating but I get it.  I have another guest who is TTC and said she wouldn't come if she was pregnant.  She way saying that before this virus was even a thing.  So I'm guessing she's definitely not coming now.

          @JoannaBanana that is really too bad. I can totally relate, our wedding went from 36 guests down to 29 because of this. I lost a bridesmaid and my maid of honor. Although the my maid of honor is not pregnant she still believes that her 6 month old is in danger. It is completely ridiculous but no matter what information I send her, she still thinks that there is danger. Also she believes that she will contract the disease and pass it to her baby through breastfeeding ! It's totally crazy. Not much I can do.

              Soooo.... A week ago the best man cancelled because he changed jobs. Now we're hearing from others that it's because they are trying to conceive. Trying. That's just... Ugh.... You can't wait? Then test after?

                Yup! My best friend/ bridesmaid literally just popped out a baby and are scared she will get Zika and it's going to be in her system for the next baby so she bailed. Ugh! I'm pretty sure every bride that wants kids is in the same boat!

                Sadly people are going to believe what they want to believe no matter how much information you give them. There is more power in the media than people realize. Just today I read that the US CDC is transferring the Ebola money over to investigating/researching Zika. I also know Brazil started a major insecticide spray campaign to kill the mosquitos. But the news media blowing it way out of proportion is what everyone will focus on.


                I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015
