Are you having an outdoor spring wedding?
My wedding will be June 1st at the the Mandana Barn in Skaneateles and we planned to have an outdoor ceremony. I was mortified to find out today that this spring marks the emergence of the Brood II Cicadas (17 year locusts). I don't remember this happening in my childhood but it sounds terrible! These nasty bugs are huge, noisy, gross, and such a nuisance. When they die their bodies litter the ground and begin to rot and smell. And they will be coming by the billions! Anyone remember the last time the Brood II Cicadas emerged in 1996 in CNY?
The reason we chose the Mandana Barn is because of its rustic beauty and the huge barn doors that swing open. Now I fear that if we have the doors open the locusts will infest the barn during dinner and our reception (and its basically a given that they'll be there for the outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour).I feel like I'm spending all this money to make this day perfect and now it's going to be far from that.
