ughhh. i know we’re still 9 days out but really? 95% chance of rain (thunderstorms, more accurately) accoring to accuweather on our wedding day. i am so beyond bummed right now and i can’t stop thinking about it. the whole reason we picked our venue was because of the beautiful outdoor option but now we might have to use the backup option. ughhhhhh! i feel like this wedding has been doomed by murphy’s law from the beginning… dud.

You could try to think positively. The 10 day forecast can be as low as only 30% accurate.

@misskittykakes: i know, right? i’m not going to look at it again until like 4 days before because i think (hope) it’s too early for it to be accurate!

@augustsix: There is no possible way to know this far out. DEFININITELY take it with a grain of salt! As I said on an earlier thread today:
I actually posted on the Bee in tears the night before about how I wouldn’t be able to have the outdoor ceremony I’d dreamed of. It was 80% chance of thunderstorms for the next day.
Well, it was gray and drizzly until about 2 hours before the ceremony. Then, the clouds literally parted. We ended up being able to do it outside (although it did get a big gray again), and then it started raining again about 2 hours after the ceremony. It was amazing.

Just to try to make you feel better: 10 days out from my wedding it said the same thing, but heavy snow. As it got closer the percentage went down. It dumped snow the night of our rehearsal, but the actual day was perfect. Not a cloud in sight!

I’m not trying to give you false hopes, but this happened to us, too. We bought umbrellas for every two guests for our outdoor wedding and hoped for the best.
It rained ALL WEEK and the sun was shining the entire day of our wedding.
Sometimes the forecast can be wrong, especially this far in advance. Just be prepared in case it’s not. It will all be okay! 🙂

@augustsix: We must be looking at the same weather report. I keep telling myself to stop but I am obsessed….. I am hoping for the sunny beautiful outside ceremony. We may have to settle for the cozy close inside one!

I know this is going to sound TOTALLY, CERTIFIABLY insane, but…
For my friend’s wedding, her mom read about this Mexican tradition of stabbing pearing knives into the ground on the morning of the wedding. The bride and bridesmaids each get one, and on the count of three, stab them somewhere in the ground where they can leave them all day. The rain held off all day until we were inside dancing (it was a violent storm) that lasted only 30 minutes, and had passed by the time the reception was over.
There was a 60% chance of rain on my wedding day. We did the same thing. No rain until 4am the following morning.So far we’re 2 for 2 on this.
I mean, I’m a rational person and know that superstitions are CA-RAZY, but hell, it’s worth the chance that it might work for your wedding day. couldn’t hurt.

I’m in the Midatlantic and just looked at accuweather and saw the same forecast:( Oh well, just be sure to have a back up plan.

Mine had 80% of scattered thunderstorms. Thank God I didn’t check the forecast until a couple of days before the wedding. I wasn’t too worried though. It’s TX, it’s HOT!! Anyhow, not a drop of rain in sight. It was over 90% though!

I got married 3 weeks ago today. The 14 day forecast showed sun and it eventually turned into a heavy rainfall warning. It did stop raining while we were in the church and we got amazing pictures done (great lighting) so it really worked out a lot better than I expected. But, anything can change, even within a day or two.

@bunnyfoofoo: i love this!!! i’m a rational person also (except when planning a wedding. obviously.) but right now this sounds like something i’d be willing to try! thanks! 🙂
