    depends on if 3-5 inches is relatively normal for your area or not and if it finishes snowing during the day or if it is hitting late at night as the reception is ending.

    If that’s no big deal in your area I’d go, maybe leave a bit early rather than drive home late on bad roads if the snow is falling late.  If that amount of snow grinds the area to a halt then I may not go.  Bad weather and can’t come is one of the hazards of a winter wedding.

    I would still go, but then again I grew up in WI and MN where you’re still expected to go to school/work with snow. So it doesn’t really bother me.  If the wedding is next Saturday, the weather forecast might even change by then anyways 🙂

    Yes. But I live in Canada. Most winters we get that much snow regularly so it wouldn’t be a big deal to me.

    If I chose to have a winter wedding I would understand that my guests shouldn’t have to risk their safety to come to my wedding. I would talk to your friend personally and let her know your concerns.  I’m sure she’s aware of the forecast and hopefully she’ll understand that you might have to skip the wedding, but try to give her as much heads up as possible.

    Where is this? I live in Chicago so this would be perfectly normal here. Are you not used to driving in snow? How far is the drive? 

    Also, just because the forecast calls for snow does not mean it will actually happen.

    Living in Minnesota, We constantly get a all for large amounts of snow, but half the time it doesn’t even come. Don’t decide now because it may just end up snowing a little bit. Also if it’s JUST snowing, I’d still go. The only way I wouldn’t is if it was whiteout conditions. Just snowing shouldnt stop you from going.

    I’m from an area that gets a lot of snow, so that doesn’t sound very bad. Certainly not enough to miss a wedding Or disrupt day to day life. But if you live somewhere that snow is unusual, I guess I can see people freaking out over a few inches

    I’m still expected go to work when there’s even 12″ forecassted… so 3-5 sounds like nothing to me.

    Depends on a variety of factors. How long is the drive? Where are you located? Is the state you’re in one that knows how to handle snow? Is it supposed to hit in the middle of the reception? Are there hotels close by you could stay at?

    Whe I live, 3-5 inches of snow is nothing. Well, it’s inconvenient but we get snow so it’s not that big a deal.  If the wedding was in the mountains and you had to drive though possibly unsafe roads, then I would probably not.

    I would need more information about where the wedding is to make a final decision.

    I’m from Ontario Canada so 3-4 inches sounds like a typical daily commute lol… and the suburbs here are the first to be plowed. So yes for me!

    pateacher:  Still not enough info. I live in the suburbs. How far is this suburb from you? Does your city normally get snow?
