I can’t believe it.
I was picturing a beautiful outside ceremony at our favorite vista spot on Tueisday. I just heard that they are predicting record setting rain for June — on just those two days. One of those days is our wedding day.
Then, yesterday, our videographer canceled with just 5 days to go until the wedding. We’re scrambling to find someone to video our special ceremony.
I don’t know whether to cry or laugh. Well, when I found out about the rain, I just laughed, actually. What the hell?! I’ve planned this day for months, and now this stuff happens…

Whaaaa? The videographer canceled just five days out?? I sure hope you’re getting your deposits back. That’s ridiculous!
As for the rain, if you Google rainy-day weddings, they can actually turn out beautiful. Get a nice umbrella and some cute rain boots and make that crazy weather work for you 🙂

Sometimes rainy days can turn into a beautiful wedding! It rained VERY hard the day of my friend’s wedding–we’re talking terrential downpour–but a few minutes before the ceremony was supposed to take place, the rain let up. The venue staff quickly dried everything and reset, and they proceeded as planned. The best part? There was a DOUBLE RAINBOW through the entire ceremony. It was STUNNING…and something you could never plan for. She now has the most beautiful wedding photographs you could ever ask for.

@HeyKaraoke: I’m furious with our ex-videographer. I think he only told me that he had to cancel because I reached out to him about a time change for the ceremony. If I wouldn’t have reached out, he probably simply wouldn’t have shown up. I can’t believe someone would leave a bride hanging five days before her wedding day. The good news is that this is the civil ceremony. We have a much bigger wedding planned in three weeks, so we have a bit of time to scramble around and find someone really good for that day.
As for the rain, I think I will do exactly that. It will make me feel better to at least have a beautiful colorful umbrella and some cute rainboots to wear with the dress. I still can’t believe it thought. After all that planning…maybe this is the universe telling me to lighten up and relax and realize i can’t control everything for this wedding!

@CelticBeachBride: Aw, thank you — that makes me feel better. This civil wedding ceremony has been…uh, interesting to plan. First my FI wants to change the time 6 days before the wedding. Then, our videographer cancels five days before. Today, I hear they are predicting record setting rain.

Well I feel your pain about the weather. We’ve had an awful spring and summer here so far but we did have a small stretch of nice weather which was interrupted only on the day of our wedding by a dramatic drop in temperature and rain. It was sunny and nice the day before and sunny and nice the day afterwards!
As it happens it made no difference at all and the light was far better for photographs! It allowed for silly, fun things to happen like me doing “Singing In The Rain” dance with an umbrella and also a couple of really lovely shots under an umbrella.
Absolute Grrrrrr! about your videographer though. Very unprofessional and I hope you can get a replacement in time.

The problem now is that our backup videographer doesn’t want to film in the rain and spoil his equipment. Back to square one. Super frustrating!!!
80% chance of rain predicted for tuesday.
