    pateacher:  where I come from, 3-5″ of snow is nothing. So yes. But then where I live now, 3-5″ of snow means that the whole coty stops working. So maybe not. Basically, as long as I can get there and back without problems/danger I would go.

    It seems as though you purposefully gave as little information as possible. Do you even want to go, how far is the drive, what was their RSVP policy, what is your relationship with the Bride/ Groom? Those questions would actually give the most relevant information and would help people helpfully answer the question.

    Methinks you’re desperate for an excuse not to go. The snow is no big deal. You have time to plan ahead.

    If there is some reason you’re not wanting to go, stop trying to make excuses and be real.

    Safety first, but I’d make every attempt to go.

    What you should have done is canceled as soon as you realized you didn’t want to go to this wedding (with a better excuse!) so the couple would have had time to invite someone who cared about them and/or make sure they weren’t out money for your seat. Trying so hard to get out of a wedding seems immature and selfish.

    And is this the one where the bride asked you to be Maid/Matron of Honor but you didn’t want to attend because your ex would be there? If so, shame on you: the bride thought so much of you that she asked you to be Maid/Matron of Honor, and you’re stringing her along, wasting her money, and causing her stress when you’ve known for almost a year that you didn’t want to go?! And if it’s a different wedding, why are you so frequently trying to duck out of weddings you’ve RSVP-ed yes to? An RSVP is a commitment.

    I’m from Chicago so 3-5 inches is nothing for me. Would absolutely go. 

    Do you live in a winter/snowy climate and are used to snow?

    pateacher:  You’re in Jersey? I’d def go then! Why wouldn’t you?? This is a friend of yours. Give yourself more time to get there so you can drive slower but other than that, problem solved. And it’s a week away, you can prepare for this. 

    I feel like you’re just wanting an excuse to not go.

    If you’re just looking for an excuse, 3-5 inches of snow would sound pretty flimsy to me.

    If you know someone else going and you arent comfortable driving in the snow, see if you can carpool. I’m going to say for the saftey of other people on the road, if you can’t handle driving in the snow then don’t drive. Having drivers out on the road that can’t drive in bad weather makes it more dangerous for others traveling.

    Personally i’d go,but give myself double the estimated time and possibly book a room if I wanted to drink at all. When it snows (especially at night) I treat everything as potential ice and slow coast(minimal gas and no sudden braking–I get up to maybe 40 on the highway and stick to the slow lane incase someone comes swerving over) as much as possible just incase I do hit a spot of ice.

    I agree with everyone here..you obiously don’t want to go. Tell her now so she doesn’t have to pay for you …it’s unbelievably rude unless you have a legitimate excuse which this is not. My wedding venue charges $125 per person (and thats just venue / catering, not to mention the actual per head cost which we figured is around $350) so if I were her I’d be reallt hurt if a ‘friend’ didn’t show because they couln’t drive through a little bit of snow in an area where it’s totally normal…but hey thats just me. Maybe carpool?

    You’ve been starting and deleting threads trying to justify not going to this wedding for what, a year now? Why didn’t you just RSVP no instead of being ridiculous?

    pateacher:  are you located in PA? I’m in NY and my family has a house in PA… 3-5inches should be totally fine for you to travel to the wedding. I still drive to work in that, so I sure as hell wouldn’t miss a friend’s wedding. Leave yourself extra time and dont put your heels on til you get inside.

    pateacher:  

    I don’t think 3-5 inches is a lot of snow but I’m Canadian. 

    We live in a snow belt as well so that adds even more white stuff.
