  • I saw about the earthquake as well.  I hope everything is okay for you down there.
  • Just checked her expat-in-Chile blog, says all okay.  WHEW!!!!!!!!

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284
  • Thanks for the response Emily!  I'm so glad to hear that you and your family are doing OK.
  • Yes, thanks for the update Em, we all have been worried! Hope everything turns out ok with the venue!

  • Oh yes, my new line is "your BM dresses/invitation stuffing night/bachelor party problems can suck it next to the 8.8 earthquake a week before my wedding!" Glad we are all in agreement.

    FI drove by the venue earlier and said it looked ok from the outside. MOH tried to rebook her flight, and the next one-stop is for March 7. Obviously that does not work. So she's now booked via Buenos Aires for March 4. If the airport's open by then, we're good to go, and everyone will arrive that day. Fingers crossed...

    Also, for anyone who's interested, I just put up a post with more info of how our day has been. It's spazzy and all over the place, but that's kind of how I feel right now. Also really really tired...we slept two 1.5 hour chunks last night, and I have had no nap.
  • Thanks so much for posting Banana! I was worried too. I thought about Emily immediately when I heard about the earthquake, but I was away form my house all day.

    Emily, I'm glad you are okay. I hope they make a handball exception for you FI since this was such a big quake.

    I'm glad you are safe... You were the first person I thought of yesterday, but I did not have interent access to post a thread.  Thanks Banana for starting this.






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated. 
  • Meant to post yesterday to say hi, but just as I went to do it my computer froze. It's now back, as is our power after being out for a bit, but water's gone. I'm hoping my dad's hotel has water, I'll find out in a bit. Apparently the problem is that the pumps that get water through the pipes run on electricity, so although the water system itself is fine it isn't working in some parts of Santiago and any of the areas close to the epicenter.

    Going to call the venue in a bit to see if we're still getting married there on Saturday!
  • Good luck!! 
  • Glad to hear you're okay, Emily!!
