    I am sure it will turn out okay 🙂 Hopefully most of your Out of Town guests don’t have too far to go. Maybe if some of the guests have good cars in the snow they can pile up in them to get to the reception easier? I bet the snow might make some pretty pictures for ya’ll too!

    As long as it’s not a crazy amount of snow, and your area knows how to handle snow, you aren’t going to have any problems.  We used to live in CO and it snowed all the time but there was good infrastructure and they had the plows out so quickly that roads were fine.  To me, snow is the best part of a winter wedding!

    I think Plan A should be contacting everyone coming in and letting them know it will be snowy, and to plan accordingly.

    Plan B should be to push the ceremony back 30 minutes, at most, while you sip a nice hot apple cider with half a shot of spiced rum in it and wait for your guests to battle their rental cars through unplowed roads.

    You still have almost a week!  I wouldn’t trust the weather forecast until you get much closer to the day.  On the Monday before our Saturday wedding, the forecast said a 60% chance of rain all afternoon.  Saturday was gorgeous and sunny.  I’ll be thinking good weather thoughts for you!  Smile

    @Mrs Grape: um no I don’t think so lol. Of course I live in CO so I am used to just truckin it out through the snow no matter how much there is, so it may differ in other places.

    I’m all for making the snow people after the wedding! While I do agree with PP who have said not to trust the weather man, I would give everyone who is suppose to attend a heads up about the possibly inclement weather. Can some of the people who are a little further away maybe come in the day before so they will be there? Not only will the snow make for really pretty pictures, but your guests playing in the snow would make for super fun pictures! In the meantime, I’ll be doing my weather dance for you and try to lure the snow my way.

    @Mrs Grape: They won’t shut down the city unless you don’t live in an area that usually gets snow.  Here in AL, they close everything down for flurries but they are dumb.
