    Do you have snow tires, 4×4 or allwheel drive? If you have anyone of these then 3-5 inches is nothing.

    If you are really concerned just be prepaired to stay in a hotel room overnight, pack a small over night bag and pre-search for hotels close by the venue.  Make it a fun date night experiance, rather then to worry about how much snow is coming down all night.

    Edit: Sorry just read the other posters, I now see that you really do not want to go to this wedding. Shame on you for sending  your RSVP to someone’s wedding that you really do not want to celebrate with. Don’t give me the crap about ex boyfriend… You are a grown adult and your tring to tell us you can not face an Ex boyfriend in order to attend a wedding! Are you in highschool? Seriously… Wow but if you don’t want to attend your friends wedding that badly then just don’t go. Why waist your time going, sitting at a table to look miserable. Maybe just go to the church ceremony to at least attend the important part of the wedding. You can go to cocktail hour then just say you are not feeling well and leave Drop your wedding card in the gift box.   I hope you do give the bride and groom a wedding card filled some money to cover the cost of your diner and extra for a gift. You did RSVP they will have to pay for your meal weather you go or not.

    Yeah, 3-5 inches is nothing in an area that normally sees snow in the winter.

    3 – 5 inches is nothing. Go to the wedding. 

    Why are you so desperate to find an excuse not to go?

    I live in D.C. and would go in 3-5 inches of snow.  I drove home from work when I lived in South Carolina when we got 8 inches a few years ago and wouldn’t do that again (SC has maybe one snow plow in the entire state so the roads were terribly unsafe + no one knew how to drive in it).  D.C. is pretty quick to freak out about snow, but this wouldn’t deter me, especially not in NJ.

    3-5″ on the east coast? No big deal. Yes, I’d go to the wedding. Unless I was grasping for some excuse to not attend, knowing full well the costs associated with my RSVPing yes would mean someone was still paying for me even if I wasn’t there? But, I wouldn’t do that…

    Woah, you’re trying to avoid the wedding of a “friend” because your ex will be there?! Was he deranged and abusive or something? What’s going on here???

    ETA: This is me trying to give you the benefit of the doubt here.

    I went back and read OP’s past threads about not wanting to attend this wedding.

    To all those who are suggesting OP gets snow tires, carpools, etc, you’re wasting your time. She started this thread hoping other people would validate her excuses…and it didn’t work. Sorry, OP, you just sound like a crappy “friend.”

    I’m not falling for this again. I remember the last attempts to “help” you get to the wedding, at least one of which was closed. 

    Do your non-friend a favor and just tell her you’ve been looking for an excuse not to show up for 9 plus months, you’ve got nothing, so you figured why not try the truth. you don’t want to go.

    I live in Southern California (born and raised), so I don’t get to experience snow often. I’m also one of those people who love snow for about 5 minutes and then will start screaming obscenties will find a way to get the hell out of it. With that being said, 3-5 inches of snow will not keep me from a close friend’s wedding.

    I would plan accordingly, leave early, give myself plenty of time, but barring a severe weather warning, I would be there.
