Audrey2:  I agree, rain can make for some awesome pictures! Also- it’s considered good luck if it rains on your wedding day! It rained on mine and I was stressing it, but cleared up about an hour before the ceremony leaing us with gorgeous partly cloudy skies (great light for the photographer) and cut down that oppressive heat quite a bit!

Audrey2:  It rained on my wedding day! It was a little different than yours as we had the ceremony outside and the reception was indoors. I have some photos that I shared on this post: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/52514-wedding-recap-tons-of-pro-pics/#axzz35sw68G00 (scroll down, because I posted a second set of photos later)

No one cared that it was rainy – they thought it was cool and unique! Of course, we all hope for the best weather, but the best advice I got was not to let your worry or unhappiness over the rain be seen by the guests! They will never know that the rain was a problem or worry if you don’t let it affect you!

Audrey2:  Congrats! I’m getting married on July 5th as well.  It’s been raining here too.  My FI has been checking the weather network for the last 2 weeks.  I asked him to stop telling me the forecast, it was making me anxious.  The way I look at it is that I can’t control the weather.  I have a “plan B” in case it rains and that’s all I can do.  I’m not going to let mother nature take anything away from my day!

I spoke with my photographer about the possiblity of rain.  I was suprised that she had so many ideas/spots that she could use if it did rain and still get great pics.  That made me feel so much better knowing no matter what I’d have great pics/memories of my wedding.  Personally, I don’t even start to trust the forcast until 2 days beforehand.  I can’t recall how many times it called for rain/clouds and at about noon turned into a beautiful day!  Even the professionals can’t predict the weather.  Have a great wedding:)

It was supposed to rain on my wedding day. And we had a completely outdoor wedding! Ceremony was. Planned in the open. And dinner/dancing under a tent. But lots. Of tiem spend without cover. For the rehearsal, if didn’t just rain,  it poured. Huge storm. Hail. In August. I got upset and then just accepted the fact that I would have to do the whole thing under the tent. Then, come wedding day, not a single drop fell!!! It couldn’t have turned out better!

Audrey2:  You could also do something cool like this:

Collect rain drops from your wedding day and make a keepsake ornament for your christmas tree or other display item.

Not sure if you are religious at all but I’ve always viewed rain as God’s way of purifying the land for something new to blossom and prosper 😀

rain is sexy? Lol…I dont’ know, rain was in the forecast for my day as well, I woke up to wet pavement and dripping trees and was just like F it, I’m not looking otu the window anymore. But when I stepped out of the hotel  and into the street in my wedding gown, the sun was shining! You never know.

Do you have any kind of a plan B?  Rain can mean a sprinkle or it can mean a downpour.  I am really hoping you have a backup…..

I’ve heard that it’s supposedly good luck to have rain on your wedding day.
