Getting Married Next Week

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Weather permitting (beach wedding in Texas and hurricane possibly heading this way!!!!), we're getting married on Tuesday next. Getting very nervous now as we still have so much to do before it goes ahead, and the possibility of the storm hitting is pretty scary.

I just wanted to say Good Luck to all the filers here. The wait might be long to get approved, but it is so worth it when it is :)

Now I'm off to pick up my dress!!!

Congrats to you and be safe!!!

Aww, thank you :).

It's strange but getting married is making me feel so selfish with regards to this storm. We're glued to the hurrican tracker on our local news website, hoping it will take a turn and hit Florida instead of spoiling our beach wedding! If the worst comes to the worst, we can put it off for a few days as our JP is willing to do that for us, or to do it in another location that same day.

If you go to Weather Underground the predictions all include Texas for some rain. I think that's a given. So it's good that your JP is accomodating. There is no way to do Monday morning or earlier instead?? Sending good thoughts your way; be safe!!

Aww, Thank you all :)

To be on the safe side, we actually held the date back until next Wednesday. The JP was fine about it all. Only problem is that we had no room in the fridge to store our wedding cake, so we've been eating it and now have to get a new one :whistle:
