So today it is very cloudy here. I am getting married in 2 weeks and checked Weather.com for their 10 day weather. So far it only goes up to the 24th but on the 23rd and 24th is is raining. I know that the weather is only a prediction and that is can change but I can’t help but feel a little stressed out. We chose May because in California, it is always sunny and beautiful in May. If it were to rain, we wouldn’t be able to have our beautiful out door ceremony or take our beautiful pictures. Is anyone else worried about ir raining? And for those who had rain on their wedding day, what did you do?

Oh, man. My fiance and I couldn’t handle the idea of worrying about this so we decided on an indoor wedding! I hear it usually works out though. Do you have a back-up indoor space?
PS-Now I have Alannis Morissette in my head.

Yes – there is no such thing as even remotely guarenteed weather here 🙁 My plan is to buy umbrellas and parasols and hope for the best.

I am getting a year minus a day from you. I went on some farmer’s almanac and checked to see if it had rained in the past 10 years on my wedding day(the day before Memorial Day). 3 out of 10 years had rain.
We are having an outdoor ceremony and fingers are crossed for no rain! Our reception site has a ceremony place included but I want to be outside. Just remember if it rains that is good luck for your marriage. 🙂 Just plan for the worst but expect the best!

Terrified of rain, since we didn’t have time to reserve a tent. If it rains we all just hang out under the amphitheater roof.

I was kind of wishing for a little rain on our weddign day, it’s good luck! And I think IMO that it makes for beautiful photos. But we did not get any, we did have a back up plan just incase because the ceremony was outside.

I live in UK, and rain is more frequent here, so EVERYTHING has to be planned….in case of rain….
I do worry about rain, but i have planned my wedding for August…..I know thats no guarantee of no rain, but maybe lessening the odds a tiny bit.
My ceremony is booked for the gazebo in the hotel garden, but we have a plan B in case of inclement weather.

Very true. i am a wedding photographer and last August i photographed a wedding in mid August…..it pissed down for most of the day, but then when it stopped and a fairly weak sun came out, we went outside for photos and everything was much greener and fresher looking……and my exposures were spot on, much better than full sunshine…..

You really can’t trust weather predictions. It said it was supposed to rain on our day, but it poured the day before and our wedding had beautiful weather. As long as you have a plan B, you should be fine. It might not be the wedding you dreamed of, but you’ll still get to marry your man and that’s what really matters.
