I don’t really like being in the cold but for a wedding I would tolerate it.  Have you thought about having heater lanterns (whatever those things are called)  And maybe you can even serve hot cocoa!!  Yumm.  That’s what I plan to do if I end up with my feb wedding.

Hmm. The weather issue is a hit and miss like you said. I am having my wedding outside, it has always been what I had invisioned. The ceremony does not last that long, so hopefully the weather works in your favor. But if not you can have your ceremony inside and your reception outside under a tent.

Good Luck.

Have you talked to your Fiance.  My concern about moving the date would be for financial reasons.  If that isn’t a problem then moving it would be fine…a little stressful but fine.  You would just have to realize that some of the DIY things you probably planned might need to get taken out if it’s crunch time. As for the weather, blankets would be fine. Pashminas always make for great pictures too.

I would suck it up.  Just make sure that people know it is an outdoor ceremony and they will wear warm clothing.  Sounds like a lovely idea!

I don’t think it would be too bad. I’m not having my wedding outside but it’s in October and I’m in Pittsburgh. Probably about 5 degrees warmer than your area around that time. I’m hoping for a temp of around 60! I think the blanket idea is nice. If that’s where you want to get married you should do it. Just be prepared with a backup in case we get a blizzard (which totally could happen)!

Is there anyway you could do it in September? Oh, i don’t know why i didn’t mention this in my previous post, but I live in Pittsburgh, but my wedding a little south of Erie – so it’s def colder up there. hahahaha, but hey i wanted an autumn wedding also. It’s so beautiful here in October! You should go for it, but if you have major doubts, move it to September?

Our wedding was September 2009 in western Maryland and was fall themed. Our ceremony was outdoors and the weather was something I didn’t even start to think about until a couple weeks before…I started worrying more and more, checking 3 different weather sites multiple times a day. The days leading up to the wedding were calling for rain but they stayed sunny and warm. The day of the wedding it was supposed to be sunny and in the 70s. Unfortunately, it was literally the foggiest/gloomiest day I’ve ever seen in my life!! At least the rain held off, that is, until I started walking down the aisle for our outdoor ceremony. Luckily it was just a very fine mist but umbrellas were out and I was worried the whole time about guests, etc.  But it all worked out! No one was upset about the weather and the pictures turned out great….I guess my point is, no matter when you have your wedding you’ll never ever be able to count on perfect weather. If what you want is a fall wedding (as I did) then go for it!! Make best plans to accomodate guests and keep your fingers crossed.  It would be awful if you did not pursue your “dream wedding” in the autumn just to have it rain/thunderstorm in June. Best of luck to you!

I love october weddings. But the main reason we chose a non-outside wedding (well before we chose a january wedding date lol) is because I was freaked out that I would get rained on. I think maybe plan for a tent or if they have a barn then make it useable for the wedding, just in case. Other then that I love the blanket idea. My brother got married in April outdoors and we like to have froze. It was roughly 40 degrees on the day he got married and this April it’s been 95% 60 and above. Ridiculous, but my point is that you can’t depend on having a good weather anything can happen… and often does.

By the way I love the dress. Do you mind telling me where it came from?

Hi,

I totally saw a bride with Orange wedding-and blankets- as she had cool/rainy weather.  I know I will be able to find it in the a.m. so email me, with your regular email so I can attach a photo, that would be better in case I can’t find this post tomorrow!  lol.  Is there a barn you could use on the farm? – and space heaters to rent -just in case?
