Am sitting at home today, and just wanted to share my story.
so, today was supposed to be my wedding day. I was getting married at The Skylands Castle, at the NJ Botanical Gardens, but the state park grounds were evacuated last night because of Irene. (Sidenote: I grew up on/and parents still live on street called Irene Court… ha)
The venue called me yesterday around 4p to give me the bad news while we were on our way to the church rehearsal.
I was devestated, but now i’m OK with the idea that i’ll be having a fall wedding in October… i’m in love with the venue so i’m going from a Saturday wedding in August to a Friday wedding in October because that’s all they have available. Reasons why i’m not jumping out a window right now:
October is my favorite month
Fiance and i met oct 29th
Halloween is my favorite holiday, ever.
venue is available the 21st and 28th
Any other brides get cancelled on today?? 🙁 Hope my hurricane brides are doing ok

I am so sorry that Irene spoiled your day, but you have the best attitude about changing the date and the date works perfectly with you two personally. You go girl!

@Heidigm221: So sorry that Irene ruined your day. Way to look on the bright side though. Stay safe in this storm!

So sorry to hear that Irene has spoiled your day. Glad that you are able to see the bright side though.
It will be fine in the long run though. The most important thing is not the wedding, it’s the marriage and being with the person you love.

You have a great attitude about this 🙂 Its nice to see someone actually dealing with something major and not wallowing in their own self pity. I hope you have a great October wedding, fall is beautiful!

Most people say rain on your wedding day is good luck… but you got a HURRICANE! Sure sign the marriage will last 🙂
Seriously though, I’m sorry to hear that. You will have a wonderful Fall wedding.

I am so sorry! I’m glad you are able to look on the bright side! Good luck with everything.
My wedding was supposed to be outside today in Hoboken. On Thursday my tent company called me and told me that they wouldnt set up the tent for a Saturday wedding because of the hurricane and we began to realize that the wedding wouldnt happen at all. We decided then to move the wedding Friday and miraculously every single vendor came through and we only lost 7 guests! We had amazing weather and I still can’t believe we pulled it off!
