My daughter performs plays in in an unheated brick church - last one - was 10 degrees and snowing, with all of the people there we were fine. I think with all if the guests you will have enough body heat to be warm .

I would go because I hate regret even more than I hate being cold. Plus, I love weddings.

|Posted: 2/23/2013 6:40:28 PM|I am in the minority because I would skip the wedding and just go to the reception. I get cold very easily and take forever to warm up. When I get cold I ache so no wedding for me. Unless they wanted me in a snow suit complete with boots.

Easy for a lot of us who are younger or healthy to suck it up, but not so for everyone.
In this day and age, unless they are providing some heating that Gina doesn't know about, it is unexpected and inconsiderate to guests to expect them to freeze in February. Especially if they are not forewarned. I hope it's a quick ceremony.

Poor planning on their part, but they are the ones paying, so they get to decide. But you can always skip the wedding if the cold bothers you and go to the reception. Or you could try going to the wedding and it it is too cold, leave early.
But, that is very sweet that you have a dil that cares about you and wants you to come to her brothers wedding. So for her, I would go. Many women aren't so kind to their mil.

I went to Christmas services at an unheated church in Prague one December. It was under ten degrees F outside. We bundled up. It was beautiful and I have amazing memories of the experience. Hopefully it will work out similarly for you.

At least you know it is unheated. I would suck it up and wear a warm coat and gloves.
I'd only be annoyed if I didn't know there was no heating until I turned up, and hadn't had the opportunity to dress appropriately.
I love a Winter wedding, very romantic.

I guess you better bundle up! I would be griping about it too.

Just curious, what do you think the bride will be wearing?

I can't begin to tell you how cold I've gotten just reading this thread!
Ya'll might be right about going, but dang.... Gina, I'm freezing just thinking about it!

That completely did me in. I'm sitting here in my coat and even my nose is cold now.

batya - i only found out about the heat because my son is a groomsman
he was at the rehersal (and froze) and he told us
i am not sure how they handled communicating it to the other guests
i did call the photog (a friend) to warn her...she had no idea either
they did have some space heaters set up...enough so that there weren't red noses at the altar but it wasn't what you'd call warm

|Posted: 2/24/2013 11:55:30 AM|Frankly, I think that wearing a Snuggie is tacky unless you dress it up w/heels and pearls. Also, you'll want to bring a blanket to match your Snuggie. Anything w/Hello Kitty or Spongebob will take away from the enjoyment of the bride's special day!
I'd like to help you out. Which way did you come in?

hmmm....maybe i could dig out a coat
it still makes me wonder why?
Probably just because the temp at the ceremony venue wasn't top of their priority list with so many other things to think about.
Glad you're going to wrap up well and go though - it's be a shame to miss out

That's so strange! No heat? I have never been to a house of worship that didn't have heat. I've been to some that lacked A/C but not heat. Wow. Bundle up!!!

I see you mentioned the Jewel Box, my best friend got married there in the summer. I was the maid of honor. I remember watching, what seemed like slow motion, sweat drip off the end of the preachers nose into the Bible at a rate that made me think he wouldn't be able to read the print. The place was beautiful thought. I've never been so damn hot in all my life.
Good luck with the cold wedding.
