The good news is you have 10 months to find another place or for them to fix it. I wouldn’t worry about it until after the storm. Or you can get wedding insurance and then you don’t have to worry about it at all.

I planned an entire wedding in 7 months.  It’s not a big deal.  You’ll still get married.

I hope your wedding venue is going to be ok! I’ll put it right on my list below human lives.

Really try not to worry about this. 10 months is loads of time for them to repair any damage. Remember that they will lose a lot of money if their venue sits unusable for 10+ months, so they have strong motivation to fix things as soon as possible.

Yes, I hope your venue is ok. But if I had to pick, I’d hope the critical patients being carried down the stairwells at NYU because the generators failed and the elevators don’t work, make it through this terrible experience. 

But, it would be best if human lives were spared as well as businesses.

At least 100 people died in this storm.  One of my parents’ friends watched their house fall in to the ocean with everything they owned inside, possibly including their cat. 

Perspective is your friend.

@BartenderPlease:  Total thread jack, but where did you hear 100? I read 11 as of now.

@BrooklynBride1313:  What if it is destroyed?!??


You will go on with your wedding plans somewhere else. 10 months is plenty of time to fix that. Remember that!

Lets all remember those who lost their lives, their homes, their family/friends, pets, their cars…. So much devastation!

@ThreeMeers:  That number probably includes the 60 or 65 that happened in the carribean

@ThreeMeers:   Haiti, Cuba, and the Bahamas,  plus the dozen or so here in the states.

At least 60 and counting in Haiti alone, because so many people are still living in tents – they just washed away.

@ThreeMeers:  http://abcnews.go.com/ABC_Univision/News/hurricane-sandy-leaves-destruction-wake/story?id=17588956 Outside the US at least 69 are dead. I guarantee at least 100 people will have died by the end of this storm. 

Look for something better to worry about. If you can’t wrap your mind around the loss of life from this storm and thousands left homeless, think of the people getting married this weekend. Venues, caterers, and transport destroyed. Guests stranded and scattered. Dresses ruined in flooding and evacuation.
