They are, though, finding a way to save the special day. Lindssey davis is here with that. Reporter: I want you to meet a bride named shelby. She is an event planner. She says won't go as planned. But in the case of her wedding, 5% may actually go as planned. Sandy is long gone. But all of her destruction looms large on shelby and thousands of other brides' pending nuptials this weekend.
