Annuals and Cold Weather

I'm in southeast Michigan where the weather has been, to say the least, erratic. We had several early weeks of warm weather and I planted a TON of annuals on Mother's Day weekend. Then we had really cold weather, going down to the 40s at night, and two actual light frosts.
Should I just give up the ghost and replant/replace the annuals? How long should I wait, and what should I look for to see if they are permanently stunted? Particularly wave petunias and verbena - the geraniums seem OK so far.
I'm almost 95% perennials but did lots of annuals this year because of a fundraiser I'm hosting at my house later this month and wanted a lot of immediate/constant color. Any advice? Should I go ahead and replace or wait, and if so, how long/
Thanks for any help!
