In good news, this is officially the 1,000 post I've published on From L.A. to LA! In not so good news, we're expecting a hurricane tomorrow.
Now I knew when I was planning this wedding that Labor Day weekend didn't have a good history with hurricanes. It's when Katrina hit. It's when Gustav hit. It's when Tropical Storm Lee hit. But clearly no hurricane would be so inconsiderate to hit the weekend of the wedding. Except I guess Isaac is one rude fellow.
But it could be worse. We could be expecting to have a hurricane hit the day of the wedding. But since it's hitting several days before, I'm hoping that by the time the day arrives we'll have beautiful weather and it all goes as normal. I've talked to all our vendors in the past few days, and I'll be checking in with them after. I'm trying not to freak out because there's really nothing we can do at this point.
While I'm confident the wedding will happened as planned, it will be difficult for people to fly in. Anyone who was supposed to fly in our Wednesday has already changed their flight. And hopefully the airports are open on Thursday. We already received one completely expected call from someone who made the decision not to fly in.
The other major concern is electricity. I spent most of last night printing off programs, maps, welcome letters, and escort cards, and plan to do the same as long as we have power. Tomorrow I'm planning on putting everything together during the storm, although I'm guessing most people won't be too concerned about the details considering.
So I guess I should start printing now, and depending on our internet access I'll try to check in. But who knows, the next time I talk to you guys I could be an old married lady!
