Jacquelinesc84:  are you saying you will “happily” put yourself at risk for the sake of attending a poorly planned wedding? If that is what you are saying can I ask why?

cjfarborist:  so you don’t need to take the safety of your guests into consideration when planning a wedding? You should go ahead and plan something even though the travel is hazardous  ease it is your.dream wedding?

cjfarborist:  

Let me put it this way: the unfortunate viewpoint you expressed shows that the most rudimentary levels of hospitality/generosity, and you, travel on different avenues. Sadly, you don’t meet at an intersection.

Is this the same mountain pass that you would take to Wenatchee? If so, that drive can be treacherous even without weather. Unless all of your friends and family have boundless patience and 4-wheel-drive, I would keep it somewhere more accessible. Could you do a snowy wedding at a more accessible mountain somewhere (like Northern California, Utah, or Colorado)?

hermom:  yes.   For me anyways.   I had no problem  having a reduced wedding size to have a wedding I would enjoy. Those that want to come, will.  And those that don’t,  won’t.   Why is this a bad thing?   Getting married isn’t about inviting 300 guests to a ballroom with bad food.   It’s about sharing a special time in a bride and groom life with those they love.   If they choose to do something that expresses their personality in a way that some people don’t like,  that is should not stop the couple from celebrating in a way that celebrates them as a couple. 

claroquesi:  hmm and you do not know me or anything about who I am.   How unfortunate for you to make snap judgements.   I feel both sad and annoyed that you would come to such a conclusion.   Next time keep your snarky thoughts to yourself and reply to the poster.

I get you love snow. What about enagement photos in the snow? You’ll get the winter look you’re looking for without dragging into a weather situation.

cjfarborist:  I get having a wedding with a reduced size to get something  you enjoy.  What I don’t get is planning a Winter wedding and asking people to drive through mountain passes, which puts them in danger and being ok with that.

bbaugh08:  A few years ago I was invited to a wedding for a college friend.  I’m from the Midwest so I’m used to driving in snow.  The wedding was in a remote area where we (boyfriend at the time and I) had to drive through a treacherous area to get to the reception.  We missed the ceremony because of hotel problems so we were in a bit of a rush to get to the reception. There was some black ice on the road and we wound up in a snowbank.  Thank goodness neither of us were hurt.  It took a while for the tow truck to get there and pull us out because we weren’t exactly sure where we were at.  We missed almost the entire reception by the time we got there.  We missed dinner and were afraid to get off the main road to find something to eat.

I never thought something like that would have happened.  I was very upset that the couple would expect their guests to go though such conditions so they could have “their vision”.

Never again.  I think expecting your guests to potentially have problems like mine is very selfish.
