Many couples may worry about things going wrong as they plan their wedding, but for one pair, their nightmare became a reality. According to the Associate Press, the venue that Jennifer Cassista and Tom Bryan had booked closed down less than three months before they were able to say "I do."
Cassista and Bryan originally settled on a resort lodge near their home in Ontario, Canada, in March 2009. While the venue was under renovation, coordinators promised the space would be ready for their May 2010 wedding. Unfortunately, a few months before their ceremony was to take place, Bryan received a call that the venue had gone bankrupt, the news source reports.
Fortunately, though most locales were already booked, the couple kept cool and was able to find a new location. They spent the next few weeks redoing wedding invitations and contacting vendors, and their wedding went off without a hitch.
"You just need to relax and roll with the punches. Things will happen in every bride's planning," Cassista told the news source. "Be levelheaded and try to figure it out."
While most venues won't fall through, analysts suggest having a back-up plan to prepare for any occasion. Having a second location on the back burner may save you from a last-minute meltdown.
