So I have been informed by quite a few of my friends that I apparently picked the worst month to get married in Florida because august is hurricane season! YIKES!! So while Im sticking to my date and hoping for the best, realistically I should really see about finding a backup plan in case of bad weather. Maybe a small chapel or church or something that wouldnt mind having non-members marry there or..i dont know! Something! I am hoping for the best but I want to be confident that even if we cant get married on the beach, we can still have a beautiful ceremony indoors somewhere. Any thoughts?

Hi,
August doesn't have to be the worse month to get married, but there is no doubt you not only need a plan B you will need a couple of different plans.One should be your reception venue as a plan B, your wedding planners should be extremely flexible and be able to set everything up in the fastest of speed have the gentleman work the phones and alert all guests of the ceremony change!
Second plan should be by moving your ceremony up a few hours again a good wedding planner will keep your fiance and Dad updated on the weather situation by the hour. Our rule at SunWeddings it NOT to bother our brides with decision making you should stay calm and relaxed while these important changes can be made with the gentleman.
If there is a hurricane approaching or present we will be given ample of time and there is no plan B possible because the power can be out, therefor no food in restaurants.
We hope this was of help,

Hi Sarah,

Yes, the post from Sunwedding is correct and Tina was my planner...(Hi Tina!!) My wedding was to be at 630 in the evening in April 2008 and a storm was to rolling in from the Gulf that afternoon. Tina kept an eye on it and the decision was made to move the wedding to 1100 am, even though my aunts were flying in and would miss the ceremony. I kept the reception at 7 pm and everything was smoothly changed and went beautifully. My reception site or a small chapal was also ready to have the ceremony there in case we needed to go inside.

Have you picked a hotel yet? They may be willing to let you use space if you and guests will be staying at their hotel for a few days. Whichever planner you use will be able to give you help with this, but don't let weather possibilities stress you out too much.

This is absolutely correct a hotel or restaurant might be able to be considered as a back up plan but be assured at some extra cost!

Oh no doubt the back up location would be at an extra cost, unless they were planning a wedding at one of the beach resorts. That is why a planner is a great asset to any wedding. They can directly help with those hiccups on a wedding day and keep the stress away from the bride.
