My suggestion is to make sure everyone is aware of the weather conditions and that it can cause traffic so they may want to leave early.

Now, if it does thunderstorm, my suggestion is to find a gorgeous umbrella that you love, maybe an equally gorgeous pair of Wellies and rock the pictures. And remember, rain is good luck 🙂

Yes rain usually will mess up traffic in the city. I’d say plan extra time to get everywhere and figure out a plan for getting into the venue if it’s pouring. Also I’d count on people being late if it’s raining so be prepared to start the ceremony a bit later (10-15 mins).

Other than that I’d say just decide to have a good attitude about it and roll with whatever the day hands you rather than stressing about it and you’ll have a better time.

Awww…I bet your bride umbrella looks cute!  I wouldn’t worry too much about what those weather people say because they are wrong 90% of the time! I hope you have a fabulous wedding day!

Iknow! It’s supposed to be scattered storms all over Rochester too, and I’m not too happy :/

A week out, I feel like the forecast is just reverting to whatever the typical weather for that time of year and region is.  Scattered thunderstorms in August are pretty typical for NY so I’d assume that there’s not much greater risk than if it said anything else for the forecast. 

That said, I’ve found that NY-area drivers tend to be pretty decent at dealing with rain.  It slows traffic a little, but not like it does out here in California.  If it’s REALLY pouring then it does create travel problems.  Also, will you be in NY city with people using mass transit?  If it rains heavily or moderately for a long period of time, the subways flood and that mucks everything up.
