Dozens of expectant brides and grooms are trying to find other accomodations after a catering hall in New Jersey abruptly closes. Short Hills Caterers, in business for 46 years in the Short Hills section has decided to shut its doors as of Saturday, because of "financial problems."

After finding a letter on the front steps of the hall, 60 expectant brides and grooms are now trying to make last minute plans for their weddings.

One bride to be says she received a letter in the mail from the catering hall, last Thursday and has been trying to make other plans since then. Her wedding date is scheduled for November 8.

Other venues in the area are trying to make provisions for those couples being affected.

Lawyers for Short Hills Caterers say the clients have three months to file a claim and get their deposit back.
