With two days out there still a strong (greater than 50%) chance of thundershowers or rain on our wedding day, though today and tomorrow are supposed to be beautiful (I am jealous of the bride who booked our venue tomorrow). Our venue is indoor/outdoor- which we did in case it rained, though I was really hoping it wouldn’t.
Tomorrow night – do we rehearse outdoors just in case the weather is good, or do we rehearse indoors since that is what the forecast is calling for?
You have no idea how upset I am over this. 🙁

think of the upside, now you can get super cute bride and groom with umbrella shots. or have an excuse to buy galoshes.
(I keep trying to convince my Fiance that I NEED to own some cute galoshes, but seeing as we live in Denver with over 300 sunny days a year, he’s not buying it)

I would rehearse outside but just make sure you know where to stand in case it is inside. The rest of the ceremony will be the same, it is just where you are standing that will change depending on the location.

I’d still rehearse outside! I hope it doesn’t rain although I’m sure it will still be a beautiful ceremony. I went to a wedding in June and it rained right up to the moment the bridal party was supposed to walk down the aisle. They all just keep the faith and it worked. Maybe it won’t rain all day. I’ll be thinkin’ of ya!

Can’t you do both? When my sister had her rehersal, the weekend called for rain so they did the main rehersal outside but then went to the back-up area and did a shorter rehersal.

I would recommend practicing in both, just in case.
March is definitely an unpredictable month – hang in there! I remember this time last year they were forcasting rain for our wedding day……but it ended up being the most gorgeous, clear, warm day I’ve ever seen in March.
So you may still be surprised. =) (Even if not, they say rain is good luck on your wedding day!)

I will cross my fingers that it doesn’t rain or at least not till after your ceremony. The Weather Channel keeps flip flopping it’s prediction for next saturday and it is driving me crazy! I’d practice outside too but have everyone look at the inside especially the person marrying you since they kind of set the standard.

We’re up to an 80% chance of rain tomorrow despite today being beautiful. Now my fiance wants to rehearse indoors!

Think positive!! You don’t want to put it out there that you are expecting and planning for it to rain! Plan and prepare that it won’t, by having the regular outdoor rehearsal, but then prepare that it might, by having a shorter indoor rehearsal!! And beyond that, think positive!! I have been to many outdoor weddings where it rained all morning, and then just in time for the ceremony, the clouds cleared and the wedding went off without a hitch!! Good luck!! (and I agree with the adorable rain boot and unmbrella idea!!)
