SHE'S got everything borrowed, everything blue, tables and chairs but she's without a venue.

A local bride to be has made a desperate plea to Facebook to help find a venue for her wedding tomorrow afternoon after her plans for an outside ceremony and reception were washed away this morning.

Nicole Schuler posted the following post to the Facebook page Yeppoon Families an hour ago.

Hey Yeppoon Families 

I need your help...I am getting married tomorrow in Yeppoon. Plans have fallen through and now I need a new venue in Yeppoon. Does anyone have any ideas where would hold 140 guests and our band?

Thank you thank you!!!!

Within minutes the post had over 30 comments from people suggesting different locations around the Capricorn Coast.

Nicole, 26, said her and her sister-in-law had spent the morning ringing local venues.

"Originally we had my parents backyard in Yeppoon all set up for the wedding as they have a fair bit of room here at their estate," she said.

"We do have a marquee but with the wind warnings and the heavy rain I don't see anything standing up through this weather. We have everything we need, just some where to put it all so we're looking for an inside space that can hold 140 guests.

"We've got the catering sorted, the alcohol, we even have our own tables and chairs so we just need the space. It's amazing to see how many people have offered their help on the Facebook page, it's a really nice feeling to know strangers are out there trying to help me get married."
