    Hey Ladies!

    as some of you may know, I was scheduled to be married in Playa del Carmen on May 29th. Things were going so well with the planning; absolutely no hiccups. Then, news broke out last week that Mexico was hit with the Swine Flu and all hell broke loose! [​IMG]

    After a week and a bit of Canadian Tour Operators canceling flights and hotel reservations, trying to find a new location, debating the postponement of our wedding, losing all our deposits, and feeling incredibly guilty for the inconveniences/hassles our guests were going through being denied refunds, we got some great news today! [​IMG]

    Air Canada and Air Transat have agreed to reinstate the hotel reservations and refund the air portion of the packages which we can then apply towards flights with US carriers. [​IMG] It's not as convenient as a direct flight, but we'll take it!

    I wanted to thank you all for your help and support. It's been a really stressful time and you all have made it easier to bare.

    Right now, I'm just keeping my fingers, toes, and eyes crossed that nothing else will go wrong. I tell you, it wouldn't surprise me if Mexico was hit by hail storms, hurricanes, and an invasion of locusts in the coming weeks. That poor country. [​IMG]

    I''ve been lurking a lot lately, but I had to log in just to join the chorus of relief. Thank goodness!

    Good luck with the final planning.

    Thanks so much, bee*, PilsnPinkysMom, pocahontas, pjean, kama_s, and gaby06! Your support has been really appreciated! We''re still going through some hiccups and our guest list has dropped a bit but that would have happened if we had postponed or changed locations anyways.

    Two weeks before we leave!
