Unfortunately, weather fluxuations happen everywhere, and it’s just something you deal with.  You have nearly two years before your wedding — it is really way, way, way too soon to start stressing yourself over something like this that you can’t even control!

FWIW, on my wedding day, it was in the low 40s and raining.  The year before, it was in the upper 90s and sunny. You just deal.

@jpbee:  I am getting married in August too, and my birthday is also in August! We’re month twins x 2. In Ontario it usually is pretty hot and humid in August, so my only worry is my hair going flat. But I don’t anticipate much time outside besides the photos (indoor wedding, I would go insane worry about the weather if I did outdoor).

We’ve had some good Augusts recently but as you say, nothing is reliable over here. However, you will get hours of daylight and the likelihood is of it being warm. 

I got married at the end of May. Traditionally a good month and indeed, we hadn’t had any rain at all for a couple of weeks. In fact, over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend we had been baking hot performing at an outdoor event. So what happened on our wedding day? The temperature dropped 10 degrees and it rained! Not that it spoilt our day one jot I hasten to add. 

While it’d be great to live somewhere with more predictable weather, this doesn’t necessarily help. You only have to read the posts from Bees who live in parts of the US where the temperatures are so hot in the summer months that outdoor weddings are a real challenge. My son and daughter in law were considering getting married in Utah last September. Temperatures could have been in the 90s!

@jpbee:  SO and I, too, have has our weather worries since we set an August date.  August here in the States (and I guess pretty much for all of the northwestern hemisphere) is the start of hurricane season and while we were really going for a destination wedding or a bayside/riverside ceremony, we have since changed our mind and are looking to indoor venues just to be safe. Indoors not only to avoid potential rain but also to treat our guests to air conditioner.  I live in the south and our summers can be SWELTERING! Yell  

Been in the process now of looking for indoor venues and hopefully venues where ceremony and reception can be in the same building.

i got married in the UK in August this year! The 30th! The weekend before had been cool an then a few days before some torrential rain (remnants of Hurricane Bertha!) The day before was cool windy and showery but on the day it started grey and murky then the sun came out all morning and stayed dry bright and warm for the afternoon (it hazed over a bit and went a bit cloudier) but the photographer said this will ideal for pics as was still bright! It stayed warm enough for pics and drinks and canapes outside (we had a 30 man male voice choir too so this was a bonus they could get outside!)

i worried so much in the run up! and was a little on edge in the morning when it was drizzly but we were pretty lucky!you will be fine and it will be amazing whatever happens! keep us posted! enjoy the build up and planning as much as poss! 🙂 xxx
