You will definitely drive yourself crazy, as the forecast will inevitably change several times over the next few weeks. Not that I’m judging- I am the one who also started checking 14 days out and compared multiple weather websites each time Undecided.

When it came down to it, I didn’t get the clear and beautiful wedding day I had hoped for. It was actually super cloudy and windy for the rehearsal and the wedding. However, I was actually surprised at how gorgeous some of my cloudy/grey first look pictures turned out. And with all of the excitement and everything that happened that day, the poop weather actually turned out to be a tiny blip in an otherwise awesome day.

My wedding was cloudy and rainy and my reception was outside under a tent. I still had a great wedding and the pictures were beautiful.

Bad weather on your wedding day is TOTALLY good luck for your marriage. I even heard that clouds are the absolute best luck!

@PeachSnapple:   i did the same thing for weeks, checked the weather constantly. any change would drive me crazy. it went from sun to rain to clouds and back 360. its always changing and even on the day it can change so i honestly wouldnt listen to any weather forecasts. weather readers are the only people who can constantly get their jobs wrong and not get fired lol!!! our day was overcast and cold but didnt rain (we got married outside) and i was sooo happy. and apparently cloud is better for photos cos people arent squinting, no shadows etc! dont worry – its all gonna turn out perfect!!!!!

@PeachSnapple:  Pictures are better with a cloudy sky to diffuse the light rather than a harsh glare. Also, you can get some pretty amazing and dramatic cloudy sky pics like…

Sunny days make for shadowy and squnity pictures. The world will be your filter light box! Cloudy days make gorgeous pictures. And the 14 day forcast is way far out and can change.

I was going to say what PPs have already said. You’ll get better pictures on a cloudy day.

We had clouds and a light drizzle on our wedding day and it didn’t bother us at all. We got great and very natural pictures.

However, a friend of mine got a really sunny day for her wedding day and she couldn’t use a bunch of her wedding photos because they were squinting og had a weird shadow across either of their faces.

Overcast makes for way better pictures.

Stop watching the weather because you can’t control it.  It will probably change 20 times between now and your wedding.

@PeachSnapple:  I always heard cloudy days are best for pics, something about the light being more diffuse. I know a few people with beautiful outdoor pics and dramatic outdoor clouds, plus no one will have to squint if you take outside photos.

Just going to echo what everyone else said – cloudy days are much better for pictures than sunny days.  I used to model and we would purposely try to book things on cloudier days.
