Do you live in Colorado? Just asking because that sounds like our weather forecast for the week here!! I’m sorry that everything is coming at you right now, especially with the added stress you must be feeling! Hang in there, I’m sure it will still be an amazing day ❀️

 That sucks! But eventually it’ll be a funny story.

I got married on April 14th last year.  Sunny all week & poured on our wedding day. It stopped at 3pm though. You can’t control the weather so my advice is to not worry about it.

This was my thought too! I’m in northern Colorado and this sounds like my forecast! laurana1 :

Awe mannnnnn. you never know with weather, maybe it wont be like that that day. Forecasts can be wrong/misleading cometimes. 

But in the case that does happen, the coincidence of that happening only on your wedding day and going back to normal the day after can be seen as a inconvenient but comic memory. 

Im sorry youre going through this stress, it happens, but its definitely an uncool feeling. And btw, id be pissed about the dinner situation too as this girls gotta eat. Id make myself my own dinner and then KO. 

Hope youre feeling better by now!

P.S. Can you show us photos of your wedding once it happens? πŸ™‚

Knowing you’re dealing with Colorado…. you also know how often they miss-predict the weather here! One time my state licensure exam for teaching was cancelled 24 hours in advance because “the storm of the century” was coming, the road wasn’t even wet the next day. Don’t stress out until you see what you’re dealing with, parts of the state might barely get hit! missmollybee :

missmollybee :  I’m really sorry, bee.  I’m in MN and we are getting snow here today too — so annoying, but it’s not my wedding so I have no right to complain!  I’m especially sorry about the cancelled flights – will they make it in time for the wedding itself?

The minute I started reading this I was like, “this bee is totally in Colorado”. I am, too, so I know the weather is so super nuts! Especially this week. I was almost 80 in Littleton yesterday. I’m so sorry you are going through this πŸ™ 

Regarding your fiance and house guests/dinner, I don’t think you were overreacting. I would have been pretty grumpy if that happened to me. Did you guys talk about it this morning and smooth things over?

I feel like it’s a crap shoot to get married anytime in April or October in Colroado…and, my wedding is October 12th in the mountains. Sometimes it snows that early, and I’m praying it holds off.

Anyway, stay safe on the roads out there!

EDIT: OH NO!!!! I just read about everyone’s flights being canceled. I’m so so sorry, bee. You must have an “acts of God” clause in your contracts…does your venue have a minimum? THis is super upsetting and I feel for you.

Don’t stress yourself over trying to predict the weather: plan, have a contingency plan and then accept reality. I got married in January in Estes Park and it was 55 degrees and sunny. Two days before was a blizzard and the road was closed. Maybe consider wedding insurance? JenJennyJennifer :
