    Cherry Hill should be more than able to handle/plow 3-5″ of snow.  The roads should be absolutely fine to drive, so I see no reason not to go.

    pateacher:  There are SO many hotels in cherry hill. If I were truly worried, I would book a room. 

    Also, it’s bullshit they’re calling for 3-5. The weather reports I’ve seen say MAYBE a storm Friday-Saturday. MAYBE. There are no totals out there yet, it’s too early  

    Sounds like you just don’t want to go.

    3-5 inches here would shut the city down… But NJ? You should be fine. 

    I agree with

    Is this the same wedding you were looking to get out of going to a few months back because your ex is going to be there?

    Id skip it.  But only because if I were the bride and my “friend” was trying this hard to find an excuse to skip the wedding, then I wouldnt want her around at all anyways!

    I’m about 45 minutes away from you and I attended a funeral the day after 15+ inches of snow. If there’s a will, there’s a way…

    If you want to use it as an excuse not to go, I think you should brainstorm some new ones.

    Yes, absolutely.  I live in New England.  3-5 inches is practically a dusting.  If you feel uncomfortable driving or something, maybe take a taxi?

    There’s no reason you shouldn’t be able to arrive safely in 3-5 inches of snow in NJ. Look into different transit options (carpool, public transit) if you’re worried about driving, or book a hotel for the night so you can be sure it will be clear in the morning.

    3-5 inches, most of it will just melt off the road anyway… as long as they’re salting (and its january so they should be) then its a non issue

    I live near Cherry Hill. Not going somewhere because of 3-5 inches of snow is laughable to me. You should probably think of a better excuse if you’re not planning to attend.

    Are you looking for answers that are different than you got last time? If I recall correctly, the majority of posters said they would go, especially since it’s NJ and snow isn’t exactly uncommon there.

    If you don’t want to go, fine, don’t go. But don’t blame the snow.


    Different weather websites give different measurements of snow. How about you wait and see what the conditions are like before you ditch on a wedding you already RSVPed too. There is no reason that a few inches of snow in NJ would be unsafe to drive in.

    There is no forecast for that much snow this week…

    I might leave early if the roads are looking shitty but that’s about it

    3-5 inches of snow would shut down the city I live in (Los Angeles).. Because it never snows here. Haha

    Regardless of the weather, I would still attend. However, it sounds like you’ve been trying to find excuses, or “reasons” not to attend this wedding anyways. So maybe you shouldn’t attend if attending the wedding feels like a drag to you. As a bride, I would hate the idea of guests attending because they felt obligated to do so.

    It sounds like you are local. Are you within an hour’s drive? I’ve driven farther in much worse for a wedding. Just leave extra time and drive slowly.

    Book a hotel the night before if you are this nervous. Keep in mind once you’ve committed to attend this couple is obligated to pay your catering costs. It would have to be truly threatening conditions the day of before I’d cancel last minute.
