@AnotherMrsBrown:  Oh My!!! There have certainly been some terrible weather related tragedies this year.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you and your dress.

I’ll keep you and your neighbors in my prayers! Perhaps you could consider getting a small insurance policy for your wedding. That way if anything were to happen to your dress, venue, etc. you would be able to recoup your losses.

Thinking of you.  I’m a couple hours north in Wyoming and can’t believe how much worse it is for you in Boulder.  Hope everything turns out ok with your dress and your home.

I hope your dress is ok! 

I am further north of Boulder and my dress is in the basement of the woman who is doing my alterations. I know the dress will be ok (we didn’t get flooding here) but the thought crossed my mind too. *hugs*

@AnotherMrsBrown:  Oh no! Date twin! 🙁 That’s so awful! You’re in my thoughts and prayers! 

As far as the dress is concerned…Even though it wont be the same, maybe you could contact the orginal maker and see if they would give you another? Or try to find a similar one on ebay/craigslist?

I’m so sorry you’re going through this! Please keep us updated!

Yikes! We had this happen a couple months ago in Alberta. It’s insane how much damage flooding can do. Hopefully your dress is fine!

Hey, fellow Front Ranger, I’m keeping you in my thoughts!  I, too, hope your dress is ok!  If you’re getting married in Boulder, I’ll be crossing my fingers that your venue stays dry as well.

But whatever you do, please don’t risk your life for any of this.

Our summer has been nuts, hasn’t it?  First, we’re on fire.  Now we’re under water.

I’m in Louisville, and our apartment complex isn’t flooding (thank God), buy there is some pretty terrible flooding within a mile of where we live. I hope you all stay dry!

A friend of a friend is supposed to get married in Lyons on Sunday, which is definitely not happening, since Lyons is a huge island right now, and there is no way in or out. I feel really sorry for her. Still, I’ve heard reports of young families in Lyons losing literally everything they own. It’s pretty sad.

@AnotherMrsBrown:  I heard about this on the news yesterday.  I am so sorry.  I hope that you are safe.




We have been having flash flooding here too.  But not to the level Boulder is.  It is SOOO scary to see that much water coming in from around you.




Please stay safe.  Many prayers and hugs coming your way.


ETA, I hope that your dress is fine.  But try tormember that it is just a dress.  Your safety is far more important.  Sending a prayer for your dress.

It’s only human! I would worry about my dress, too!

I hope it’s safe and sound (and you, too!)

@AnotherMrsBrown:  Oh No! Flooding SUCKS! I’m sorry your town is under water. 🙁

Hopefully the seamstress has the sense to move all the garments she’s working on to the upstairs of her shop! Any reasonable person would unless they had to evacuate suddenly!

The town I’m in flooded some yesterday– not nearly as badly as yours, but the way I usually take to get home had 8 inches of water over the road (way too much for me to drive through in my little car) but there was another way for me to get home which was not flooded, thank goodness. If it rains too much more, there could be problems, though.

I’m sorry! My cousin lived near water while planning her wedding and she was worried about her dress getting ruined too. Hope you and your family stay safe. We live near where Hurricane Sandy hit so I know how scary it is.
