the forecast for this saturday is not looking good… 60% chance of thunderstorms – all day. i’m so bummed that our beautiful outdoor ceremony will have to be moved indoors. i just can’t believe this is happening to us. i have been dreaming about this venue surrounded by trees and walking down this aisle for 10 months and now it looks as though it won’t be happening 🙁
tell me, bees – did it rain on your wedding day? i can’t be the only one… i don’t know where to begin to deal with the disappointment.

Oh no! I’m so sorry. I hope the weather report is wrong!!! It didn’t rain on my wedding day but it was terribly hot and humid, yuck

Weather patterns can shift between now and Saturday. Don’t stress.
It rained on my wedding day (cats and dogs) then later in the afternoon the sun came out and the day was warm and beautiful.

I really hope it doesn’t rain on your wedding day.
It did rain on ours though, but we had a great time anyway, and the sun even came out for a couple of minutes, so we could get a few outdoor pictures; not the ones that I dreamed of, but they still turned out beautiful.

I’m thinking…if it does rain on ours, Fiance and I are both HUGE “squinters,” so we actually might be able to get some good outdoor pictures! (like under a covered gazebo or something)

It rained on FutureMrsMartin’s wedding day and her pics were still amazing.

yep, @2ndtime: that’s what i’m hoping for. the forecast hasn’t changed for about 4 days, though, so i’m not feeling very hopeful.
it just sucks so bad when you have an image in your head of what walking down the aisle and taking pictures will be like and then, poof, everything changes. and fi doesn’t really understand. he doesn’t get why i’m so upset about this. he keeps saying, “babe, it’ll be fine”… 🙁

No rain, but it was very overcast. It didn’t dampen the day for us though, we still had a blast. The weather isn’t something you can control, so while it’s really easy for me to say, try not to stress about the weather. Make the best of the potentially bad situation and buy a super cool umbrella for photos……

There was a threat of rain, but it nothing really came. Dark clouds were looming but it passed through and the sun made it’s appearance throughout the day. It sprinkled just a smidge right before the ceremony but it couldn’t be felt under the trees and it lasted less than a minute. I don’t know if this was true or if he was trying to reassure me it would be fine, but my photographer said he’s shot hundreds of weddings and rained on only one wedding. =)
Sending good vibes your way! Either way your wedding will be beautiful and if anything, you might get some really dramatic pictures with those clouds in the background!

It snowed on our wedding day! Although it was in December. lol

thanks ladies, for the good vibes! i’ll be praying extra hard tonight! it’s silly to worry about it because i can’t control it but it’s hard not to! the thing that sucks is that our venue will make a decision about an hour and a half before our scheduled start time – so if it miraculously clears up 20 mins before our ceremony start time, it’ll probably be too bad.

It rained for the last half hour of our outdoor wedding photos before our indoor ceremony.
You never know what will happen with the weather! I often hear of the skies clearing and the sun just peaking out at the perfect moment as the couple walks down the aisle!
Either way, it will still be your special day!!

We had 75 degree weather and tornado warnings. In DECEMBER.
It dropped 40 degrees during the ceremony and snowed that night. It was some of the most unusual weather recorded.

@augustsix: It rained a few days before our wedding. It hailed on my best friend’s wedding day. It was late July, sticky, sweaty hot, and gross. In the midst of icky weather, it looked like it was going to rain. Instead, it hailed and rained a bit. After the storm, the weather remained gross. Nothing like a summer wedding in Ohio.
