    Alyssa-I am so sorry. I feel so terrible and my heart really goes out to you. You have been plannig such a wonderful day, and I know you must be devastated. I commend you for sounding so positive though, EVERYTHING WILL TURN OUT JUST AS BEAUTIFUL as you have been planning. You have seemed so organized, that I am sure Plan B will be just as amazing!

      Hey Alyssa ~ I am so sorry to hear about this! I am so glad to see you and your FI are taking this so well.. I have been on the other side, helping couples who's weddings were cancelled due to natural disasters and I know how much work it can be. Please feel free to ask for help! I'm not in Hawaii but we can all help you.. right girls??!

        You are handling this very well, I would not be as calm as you that is for sure. Is there another hotel on Molokai that you can move the wedding to? If not, I'm sure you can still use the bags you made even if it has Molokai on it. I;m sure your guests will understand.

          Oh Alyssa!

          I feel so sorry that this is happening to you. First Mabel and now this. When I read your first post I thought - she is one of those people who are very calm and collected during a crisis. I would be a mess.

          I'm sure something will work out for you and your FI.

          Let us know how we can help!

            i know! we are still dealing with this illness thing with Mabel - it was kind of crazy b/c every one of our guests that we had to call tonight - each phone call took like 1/2 hour b/c we were updating them on Mabel and then the location - it was kind of crazy!

            thanks again for all the offers to help - you girls are the BEST!

            and Michelle - as for the OOT bags - i will probably make new ones - i am kind of a perfectionist about that stuff - we will see!

                      No! From the title I was thinking you were sharing an article you found about someone else's wedding disaster, I didn't imagine it was yours....damn it!!! How unfortunate for everyone affected. You have a great attitude about it, now let's get you a new venue asap!

                      For your guests with the non-refundable airfares, what island are they flying in to? We're all really good at this so between everyone we've got you covered.

                      Seriously, I have far too much free time and would be more than happy to do some research and make some inquiries for you if you have an idea of what type of replacement you are looking for. I'll email you, but for now hang in there sweetie and I am so sorry for the undue stress...hugs!
