Look up the monthly weather averages for your area. “October” means tons of different weather! In my hometown, October is the driest month of the year; where I went to school its the wettest.

I actually love my plan b if it rains! We are getting married at a vineyard and if it rains we will move it to the barrel room inside… If it does rain on you don’t let it ruin your day inside weddings are just as pretty and remember its about celebrating a marriage ๐Ÿ™‚

I am getting married in the Caribbean during storm season… so um, yeah– definitely worried about rain/storms in the back of my mind!  LoL.  Realistically, I shouldn’t worry so much.  We’re getting married in St. Thomas, which has not had a severe storm in over 15 years.  Can’t help but to worry in the back of my mind though………

OP, have you seen any reviews for the caterer at the indoor place?  Communication is definitely important, but at the same time, her being busy is a good sign.  If the service wasn’t up to par, most likely she wouldn’t be busy.  Exactly how bad is the communication?  I’d definitely look at the weather history for the city of your wedding location on your date.  Try wunderground.com.. that’s where I looked up the weather history for my location.  :o)

I was married last October and we had an outdoor ceremony. I was concerned with rain so we had an indoor backup just incase. The weekend of our wedding was considered an “Indian Summer” in Upstate, NY. It was 65 degrees with not a cloud in the sky (norm for that time of year is high 40’s/low 50’s). The weather couldn’t have possibly been more perfect so ya never know.

I’m getting married in SoCal, so I’m mostly worried about crazy winds and  fire. ๐Ÿ™‚ It could rain, but the atual ceremony spot is a bit sheilded by large trees. Actually, if it rained in the morning it would be lovely, bring out all the garden and eucalyptus smells in the park!

Also, I’m a sucker for all those wedding pictures with umbrellas. I just want the sun to be out for guests who are travelling all the way to California.

I am not to much concerned about rain but I am concerned about cold/windy weather. ABQ can get very windy and the first week or 2 in October is normally very cold. But I am hoping since our wedding is later in the month we get good weather. Most of our guest are from OOT so it would be great if they visit ABQ (for the first time) and get good weather.

Mine is going to be outdoor but I’m in Las Vegas. If it rains… well… it probably won’t.

@yelle418:  I am getting married on October 27 in Northern California.  I checked the history for this area and it hasn’t rained on this date in a long time.  Most temps show between 65-70 degrees.  I hope that’s the case.  I am getting married and having the reception in my MIL backyard with a catered bbq and we don’t really have a back up other than moving everything inside the house.  We are having about 65 guests so that may get kind of tight.

in Michigan we could get any type of weather in late October.  Rain, sleet, snow, it could be in the 20s, it could be in the 70s.  Who knows?

I’m not a risk taker.  All the wedding stuff is inside.

We’re getting married outside in Iowa, where the weather is also very unpredictable in October. I’m a little worried because our backup building – while beautiful – isn’t very spacious. I’ve considered canopies as well, maybe waiting to see how the forecast looks before we decide to put them up or not? But I think we’ll chance the rain. Unlike your situation though, we still have a (less than stellar) backup though if we need it.  I understand wanting the outdoor venue that you love, even though it’s risky!! Good luck!!
