I’m planning a wedding in a state park in September with no rain plan….half because I dream of being outside the other half because we can’t afford an indoor place or big tent. I’m excited, I feel it will work out well and it if rains well have fun.

We are planning an outdoor garden wedding, but at the end of June and in San Diego…I guess I have never worried about weather for these two reasons…but then again, I guess anything is possible. It spontaneously rained in California today…

 

Haha…the last thing I need to start worrying about is a .0001 percent chance of rain at the end of June in sunny SD…so I think I am going to forget about this post entirely and focus instead on my ever-expanding guest list…haha.

We’re having an outdoor ceremony (we do have a backup plan, but I’m not thinking about it because it is depressing!!!) and an indoor reception. You know… you can plan and plan and plan, and it can rain or it can shine. You’ll never know until the day of. All you can do is hope and pray. You don’t want to plan something that you won’t absolutley love because of the chance of rain.

we are hoping to have an ourdoor ceremony but the venue doesnt have an indoor optiont o fit us all, so if it rains we’ll haveto use the room at the hotel where we are having the reception.

i am actually more worried about finding a good place for pictures if it rains!

We’re having an outdoor ceremony but an indoor reception. I envisioned having an outdoor ceremony for such a long time. But, We’re just hoping and praying that it doesn’t rain on our wedding day because if it rains, we will be having the ceremony on the patio of the venue. Not something I particularly want, but can’t control the weather!

Our wedding will be indoor/outdoor as well. It is at a private estate where the ceremony will be outdoors as will dinner, but lounging and dancing will be indoors! Best of both worlds! Also, no rain plan… but luckily our rainy season is during the winter.

We’re having a 6pm outdoor ceremony in NC but an indoor reception. I am just praying it doesn’t rain…it’s worth the risk to me, it has never been an option for me to get married indoors!

We’re having an outdoor July ceremony with a marquee reception, in the UK Undecided  It’s absolutely beautiful when the sun’s shining, but I’m so worried about it being wet!  I don’t think the venue has enough inside space for a good backup plan to be possible…

@clumsylawyer:  Well, I have high hopes that after this year’s torrential rain and flooding we may be on for another two years of drought ;-)

I’m just having our ceremony outside..  It will be at 5:30 in NJ so crossing fingers it won’t be as hot as it was this year!  Its going to be a short ceremony though, so hopefully guests won’t be too uncomfortable even if it is warm.

@Oxfordnerd:  Tell me about it!  Out of interest, are you from Oxford or did you go to uni there?  I was at Magdalen and two of my friends are marrying there at the end of the month (luckily inside!) Smile

@Kate0558:  Yup, late October in Minnesota…….it could be 90 degrees, or it could be 20 with snow. Luckily, included in our pacakge is a chapel we can use as backup.

I’m a major risk taker.  Afternoon outdoor wedding in June… in TEXAS (only the ceremony, though).  It’s probably going to be sweltering, but I seriously hope not.  Of course, if the weather is too bad, we DO have the option of having our ceremony inside, but the outdoor area of the bed and breakfast we’re having our wedding at is so pretty.

@kayrie95:  I’m right with you, girl! I am having an outdoor ceremony in June in Florida… where it promises to be 95 degrees, raining, hurricaning, or all 3!! Hahaha. Luckily, my venue has a gorgeous back-up venue, so if it is too hot, too wet, or a hurricane is coming, we’ll move indoors. But I have ALWAYS wanted to get married outside, so if it’s simply hot, we’ll serve ice water and my guests (and I) will suffer for 25 minutes before moving indoors to eat, drink, and dance!
