CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) -

The weather may be an excuse plenty of people use to explain why they don't have a Valentine's Day gift this year.

But the weather has caused even bigger problems for those who were hoping for a Valentine's Day wedding at the Mecklenburg County Courthouse in Charlotte.

The Charlotte Observer reported that the snow and ice have prompted officials to cancel the usual Friday afternoon offerings of weddings before a magistrate in the courthouse.

Officials say about 60 couples usually get married on Valentine's Day at the courthouse when Feb. 14 falls on a Monday or Friday, when the weddings are offered.

The next chance for such a wedding will not come until 2020.
