Do you have a backup plan in case of rain?  You can always just resort to that option.

Wait… what?  How can you change your venue? Aren’t you getting married next week?

Whoa!!!!!  That’s really close!  All I can say is find a rain location or just tough it out!  Maybe a wedding tent?

could you still keep your reception there and just have the ceremony elsewhere?  it sounds like your reception is inside, yes?

How long is your ceremony going to be?  If it’s only like 10-20 minutes, I think that you’ll be fine (although guests might get hot since they’ll likely arrive before you and have to wait).

I agree with @mcnetn3 – go with your backup rain location (unless you don’t have one, haha).  Is it possible to have the ceremony inside where the reception is?  Or is there a gazebo anywhere where you and the groom could be?

I’d say don’t panic yet – you still have a week. The heat could break and it could be perfectly lovely. Tell your mom that you’ll make your decision regarding the ceremony next Wednesday when the forecast is more reliable.

can you do something to keep cool? for you and the guests, like have ice water or cold water bottles available. As long as it is a short ceremony people will survive 🙂 and are you having your makeup done by a pro? they will know how to set it!

I had a ceremony outside in incredibly warm and humid weather, and it was not a problem.
With the right makeup and hairdo, you will not notice a thing in pictures; and there’s too much going on in your head, the excitement and all, you do not notice the temperature, trust me.
It will all be ok; and the ceremony is not that long, then you’ll be inside for the reception.
