Default Somehow in a matter of 90 minutes...

I shifted an entire wedding from May 2nd until mid-August. 90% of involved parties:

- Venue
- DJ
- Photographer
- Florist
- Church
- My priest (who is traveling down to the church)
- Tux rentals

Only items left are transport shuttle and hotel.

My head is pounding. My BP tends to run border high (130/90) and it's definitely up there. My eyes feel like they're about to pop out of my skull.

Ughhhh.

Think of the venue owners. All conventions canceled. Hotels less then 10% occupancy. Restaurants all facing bankruptcy. Gyms too. Nobody flying.

It's a super tuff situation for the entire country.

My fiance' was a mess last night. I truly felt for her. She grew up not knowing her father. He was a police officer who was killed. Raised by her mom. This was her one moment to feel special.

My heart truly broke for her.

I told her I would do whatever I needed to get this straightened out. Somehow I did.

Good lord though. I hope this really changes peoples' views on China.

Nicely done! Your fiance will eventually remember this as one of many occasions when you put her feelings first, and did whatever had to be done.

Congratulations on your future nuptials!

or changing our views on how our own officials are responding- shortage of test kits, and the mixing of all the suspect passengers for hours inlines in an airport this weekend.

Sorry to hear this. You'll have a nice story to tell your grandchildren. And you'll probably never forget your wedding anniversary date.

Thanks so much for the kind words guys. I had to act and act quickly, at that. Soon as I saw the ban on events I knew it was open season on the wedding industry.

Thankfully, that comes along with the venue. They only work with one bakery and the venue only does one venue a day so our cake is the only one they're doing that day lol.

A lot went wrong with this. We cannot forget where this started, along with like the last 4 pandemics.

My daughter's wedding day is May 16th. She's on the verge of moving the date.

This whole virus things puts into perspective people complaining about it raining or snowing on their wedding day.

It will all work out. My buddies daughter was getting Married in Boston the weekend after the Marathon bombing. They called the venues and they said we will figure this out. They did and my buddy actually saw the police chase when they caught the guys.
