@Aria21:

Oh, I am sooo sorry!  The best part is that you ARE married, and that’s what counts!

I’m so sorry. We also had freak weather on our wedding day (it poured for 3 straights days, and broke a 23-year record for rainfall.) I know exactly how you feel. The worset part for me was having to look at the boxes of unusable decorations after the wedding. It made me want to cry. I sold them as quickly as possible so I wouldn’t have to look at them anymore.

So sorry to hear that this happened, but like the others said, at least you are married! CONGRATULATIONS on your marriage and hopefully, you and your hubby will be able to look back on this and realize that NOTHING could stop your special day, not even Mother Nature Smile

We are date twins!!! So, I completely feel for you because it was a special day for both of us and yours didn’t go so well.  Oh…I feel so sad for you. You seem to be taking it in well, though. Again, I am so sorry.

I agree with moderndaisy, you should take pics in your dress again at sunset this time with better weather.

Where do you live? I don’t know, preparing for snow for an outdoor wedding seems like a red flag to me.

I’m so sorry.  I would be absolutely devastated.  I actually think you are being really brave. 

I’m a Canadian bride too, (got married in the Rockies in August last year,) and while we had to contend with rain and wind, and food being two hours late, our tent held up and we ended up having a great day… so I’m even more sorry for you.

Is there any way you could hold on to your decorations and have a lovely anniversary party next year? Relaxed, outdoors, with the decorations, just the way you imagined it? You and your hubby could dress up again, renew your vows, and have a beautiful anniversary party with the people you love… take photos and renew your feelings, and hopefully wipe away any bad memories. 

Wishing you all the best.

Okay…so i realized a few things after i read your post and posted mine

1. We are date twins!! Yeah!! πŸ™‚ MY weather on my day was nothing like your….very much the opposite…it was INCREDIBLY hot, we had no air conditioning and the venue forgot to leave us fans..so all our pics everyone has a nice “shine” to them. My husband and dad actually sweated right through their nice shirts πŸ™

2. You are Canadian!!! Where did you get married?
