10/28 is the end of hurricane season.  You might luck out.  If it rains and you have rain plans, then so what.  As a guest, I would think it’s cool to just BE on vacation.  It’s not that much different than anyone else who had rain on their wedding date (unless the hurricane is class 3+).  I had my wedding in Bermuda on 10/23/07 and the weather was gorgeous…even though weather.com predicted rain the entire week.

dont worry about the weather.  i had my wedding in the bahamas (great exuma) in june 2007, and the weekend was on and off showers.  i did NOT get to have the ceremony on the beach as planned because of the rain, and in the end, it did not matter.  we had the ceremony on a terrace overlooking the golf course, and it was really magical when the rains stopped as we said our vows, the sun came out, and we had a rainbow.  the guests were actually relieved not to have to deal with the sand and wind.  i guess what im trying to say is that whether or not it rains, you will not be able to control it, and that your wedding will be beautiful regardless =)  good luck!

I’m in the same boat, getting married 10/18/08, in Bahamas. I’m at the point if it’s going to rain so be it. It’s all about being surrounded by family and friends. Rain or shine we’re going to have a blast 🙂 

Where is Bahamas are you getting married ?

P.S We are getting insurance ( to be on the safe side)

Eh- don’t sweat it too much.  Even if you did something outside of hurricane season anything could happen…at any location (from NYC to Key west- weather happens)  I’m getting married outside too- and I’m a little nervous as well.

But just get a contigency plan in the works- pack some fun umbrellas and rain boots for cute pictures.  and just think positive.  I’ll put out some positive thoughts for you and your day too.

And I think your guests- if they are traveling all that way- its for YOU. and they will be happy to be there with you, no matter if the days are a little less than perfect.
