If you're planning a wedding, we're certain that by now the spread of the Zika virus is something that has come to mind. With more and more engaged couples planning destination weddings, Zika is sure to have had an impact on brides-to-be and their dream wedding locations — not to mention honeymoons! The Zika virus is prevalent in some of the most popular destination wedding and honeymoon spots — think: Aruba, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Brazil, St. Lucia, Costa Rica, and even the U.S. Virgin Islands — so even if it hasn't hit you yet, you could be contending with this unpleasant reality soon enough. And we want to know exactly how you're handling this unwanted guest (if you're looking for a little extra honeymoon cash, you've come to the right place!).

The Zika virus has presented a tricky subject for brides-to-be, on one hand you want to go through with your dream tropical wedding scenario, on the other hand you want to protect yourself and guests (especially those who are pregnant or planning on getting pregnant) from dealing with this tricky wedding crasher. From changing your wedding and honeymoon locale, to packing extra DEET in your welcome bags, and even moving your outdoor events indoors, brides are taking extra precaution to keep the risks of guests interacting with Zika spreading mosquitos at bay. So brides-to-be: we want to hear from you on how you've dealt with Zika in preparation for your upcoming "I dos."

Is the Zika virus pandemic affecting your wedding or honeymoon plans? Whether you're knee-deep in wedding planning, at the early post-engagement stage, or just wrapped up the wedding and honeymoon of your dreams, we want to know how Zika has affected your plans. Did you plan a Caribbean destination wedding and feel the need to reschedule or change locations? Are you planning an exotic South American honeymoon and worried you'll have to switch up your locale? How have you kept guests up to date on any news regarding your destination's Zika woes?
