    I honestly wouldn’t even notice if it was awful. I would just be relieved and happy that the wedding was done and over with, and I was a Mrs.

    @kala_way:  This was very similar to my wedding experience. I won’t go into all the details but for a variety of reasons, it was pretty awful. Honestly, I was really sad about it for a while because I spent a lot of money on a day that was a total flop! If I had it all to do over again, I’d do a private ceremony with only our parents in an absolutely beautiful destination on a beach. My husband and I have talked about re-doing the wedding. But honestly I’d feel a little silly dressing up like a bride and doing the whole wedding thing again when we’re already married.

    I wouldn’t bother with a retake. Weddings are expensive & everyone cleared their schedule to be there. I’d just suck it up & carry on with life.

    Please don’t take this the wrong way, but you always have to have a contingency plan. You can’t rely on perfect weather and if you have only one option that depends on good weather then it’s your own stupid fault if it goes wrong.

    If the day all goes to hell, I’ll still be married to the man I love and we’ll have a vow renewal on the beach in Thailand on honeymoon.

    I’ve worked really hard to make sure we have a plan B for every eventuality, though. That way sanity lies!

    I’d be happy to be married and wouldn’t worry too much about it but if the situation was one like you described where everyone left early because of weather I might invite everyone over for a get together later on, not as big as a receptions because we’d have done that, but just a casual get together, eat drink and be merry kind of deal so I’d have a chance to celebrate with my family.

    I can understand being upset your party was ruined, you shelled out a ton of money and didnt get the wedding experience. So I would have to say I would be upset for a couple days(probably eat all the cake) and then I would get over it because in the long run all that matters would be that I was married. I might have a big party for my 25th or 50th anniversary to make up for it. Renew our vows ect

    It’s hard to grasp how I would feel if that had happened to me, but what I do know is that DH and I hardly noticed the little glitches that went on throughout our wedding day because we were having the time of our lives! Hopefully the bride and groom in this situation were so in love that it didn’t matter! 🙂

    I’d be upset I’m sure, but I’d be married and that’s the mian thing 🙂

     It was kinda my dream to have a slip-n-slide, picnic wedding, but more rational heads have prevailed. FI and I have agreed that if it pours (he’s made that stipulation) on our wedding day to the extent that we can’t have the reception we planned, we are allowed to put on our swimming suits and have a water (balloon?) fight.

    @Cady – YES this.  I’d be hella upset… but I’d probably just get over it (and hope we got a couple pretty pics)

    I’d be sad, but at the end of the day, the most important thing happened: I married the love of my life. I might be persuaded to do a small vow renewal, but really I would just be happy to be married
