Pregnant Ali Fedotowsky decides to skip her Mexican wedding over Zika concerns.“Originally, we planned the whole wedding in Mexico,” Fedotowsky told The Knot “We were super excited. We found the most amazing location and villa that would allow our entire family to stay with us. Then, all the news broke about the Zika virus and we had to cancel.” Zika has been linked to birth defects for pregnant woman.
Ali and her fiance Kevin Manno are expecting their first child and also had her friends in mind when she decided to cancel. “It was such a huge disappointment. Even though we won’t be pregnant when we get married, we just didn’t think it was fair to ask our guests to travel to a location with active Zika virus transmissions… Most of our friends are in ‘baby mode,’ and that just wasn’t a fair ask.”
