My parents live near the venue, and I’m so grateful for it—they were quickly able to put our rain plan into action. They worked with the rental company to not only confirm the tent, but also add tented walkways from the cocktail hour and ceremony tent to the main barn. Of course I was worried, but we just felt so fortunate that we weren’t one of the weddings completely devastated by the hurricane.

  11 Reasons You Want Rain on Your Wedding Day (Seriously!) Don't let a few potential rain drops get you down.But, says Aviva Samuels, owner of Kiss the Planner in Palm Beach, Florida, "Five years from now, the very last thing on your mind will be the weather on your wedding day. You are marrying the love of your life, and that is for a lifetime. In the grand scheme of things, rain is probably the least tragic thing that you will encounter.

I Took a Very Long Nap

“Not only was it my wedding day, but we decided to get married on Valentine’s Day. Horrible idea. We called the wedding off three months before it was supposed to happen. I wondered what I was supposed to do on the most romantic day of the year that was supposed to also be my wedding day: a double whammy of misery. I ended up crawling into my bed around lunchtime, calling in sick to work and just sleeping through the whole day. It was the most relaxing way to spend the worst day of my life.” —Rosi R., 31

I Threw My Cellphone in a Lake

“I called my wedding off just two weeks before it was supposed to happen. I caught my fiancé cheating on me with someone he worked with. How wonderful is that? I called it off and we lost thousands of dollars to vendors we couldn’t get a refund from. I was so depressed on the day. Every single person I ever knew called or texted me asking me how I was doing. I wasn’t doing well and every time my phone buzzed I got angry. I ended up throwing my phone into the lake.” —Sarah W., 29

Here's When to Set Your Alarm for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's Royal Wedding

  Here's When to Set Your Alarm for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's Royal Wedding Totally worth the early wake up call.Unfortunately, it's still up in the air whether this second widely anticipated royal ceremony will be televised. However, an exclusive first look at the couple's wedding invitations, courtesy of Vanity Fair, reveals that the ceremony will be begin promptly at 11 a.m. For those of us across the pond, that translates to approximately 6 a.m. EST, an entire hour earlier than the previous British royal wedding.

I Went on a Date

“I know it’s crazy, but on my wedding day, I went on a date with someone else. I was only engaged for 60 days before calling it off. I just panicked and realized it wasn’t the right thing to do and it was the very wrong guy. The wedding was set for a year and a half later, so by the time it happened, it wasn’t that big of a deal to be out on a date. I ended up dating that person for a few months and finally told them that our first date was my old wedding day. They were weirded out.” —Victoria F., 27

I Threw a Party With All the Booze

“I bought all the booze for the wedding so even though we called it off (three weeks before) I still had a ton of alcohol that I had paid for. I invited over my guest list from the wedding to my house (that I kicked my lying fiancé out of) and had a giant party. People, including me, got wasted. It wasn’t such a bad day after all. I still got to party with my favorite people.” —Jenny P., 29

I Went on a Solo Honeymoon

“The worst part about calling off a wedding two months before it happens is that a lot of the money you spend planning it is money you can’t get back. I couldn’t cancel our honeymoon to Ireland so I just went solo. I paid to go an extra day early, on our planned wedding day, and then spent a week there doing all the things we thought we were going to do as a pair. My fiancé was the one who broke things off. I bet he regretted it when he saw my trip pictures. But we haven’t spoken since we split up.” —Rachel E., 31

Therapy for the Win

“I spent the wedding day at my therapist’s office and then I hid in my house.” —Claudia F., 30
