one thing you can try is to turn the space heater on in your room a couple of hours before you sleep and keep the doors and windows closed. Then when you are about to sleep you turn it off but the room is already heated up a bit. I used to do this when I stayed in an apartment with a broken heater system

🙁 Sorry to hear about the troubles! Another thing you could do is see if you can find a reasonably priced heated mattress pad. Targets/Walmarts/BBB should all have them. Those things are awesome, and at least your bed will be nice and toasty and you’ll get quality sleep. Brides need their sleep, so it’s totally a justifiable expense 🙂 Plus, the queen sized ones and up generally have 2 controls, so your Fiance doesn’t need to have a warm bed if he’s not a fan. 

ETA- My sister and I used to seal up our room and sleep all night with the space heater on full. Just be sure to clear the area around it of clutter/clothes/etc and you will be fine. Be sure to keep the dog out of the room, though, b/c he/she may knock it over. If it’s standing alone, it will likely be fine.

Sheesh!  Hope things get better soon..   I say go for the space heater tho.  The ones made these days are beyond crazy annoying with their safety features.  They are fine to leave on while you sleep, I leave them on all the time.

I live in South-central PA and have been w/o electric (thus w/o heat) for up to 5 days in winter. Get or borrow a kerosene heater to keep the pipes from freezing!

This used to happen all the time in my old apartment. Not that you can do this for the bridal shower, but in order to bathe before work I laid down some towels in front of my stove and heated up water in a pot and took kind of a bird bath. Also, I invested in a very nice king sized dual control heated blanket. While they’re still a fire hazard, I’d feel much more comfortable with the blanket than a space heater.
