I’m august, totally worried about it, but there’s an indoor area available. Not quite as awesome but awesome enough.

@chocolatecoveredstrawberry:  Yeah, I’m a little worried. We will have to hold everything under our tent if it rains. But not much I can do, so I’m not stressing.

You MUST talk about it as a reality with your vendors. The managers at my venue brushed it off, saying “it’s not going to rain, it’s going to be beautiful!” The. We’re probably trying to make me feel better, but they were freaking me out. There was a tropical storm working its way into our region and I was 100% certain there would be rain.

make them talk about the rain plan. It’ll make you feel better knowing they have everything in order.

Btw, I picked my date because it was historically a rain free day. You can see in my recaps that it was pouring while we were getting ready.

I’m a little worried but my only plan is bring an umbrella and pray.

@chocolatecoveredstrawberry:  We’re from the UK and getting married in August. The weather in the UK is unreliable, so for us, we didn’t want to be reliant on the weather in any way at all. So, we’ve gone for a venue that’s awesome inside, but has little outside space, just a small, pretty courtyard for the smokers (may also have the drinks reception here if the weather’s good; if not, we have the run of the whole venue, and there are several indoor spaces we can use for this)

The main thing that rain would effect is getting us and our guests between the ceremony and reception venues. They’re a 2 minute walk from each other, so, the plan is for everyone to walk (inc me and the bridal party, as we’re getting ready at the reception venue). If it’s chucking down with rain, we’ll book cabs for everyone.

I am worried. Worried it will pour, worried it will be crazy windy and worried it will be like 95 degrees! Our venue already had a Plan B in place for rain. We will use the area that is typically used for Cocktail hour. They section off part for the cocktail hour still and use the rest for the ceremony. It’s a beautiful space so I won’t be super disappointed if we have to use it.

Apparently there will be thunderstorms on the day of my wedding.  I’m really upset about it because I’ve always wanted an outdoor wedding.  Luckily my venue has a nice indoor setting, but that’s not really comforting right now.  🙁

Nope. Getting married in the desert — Pretty nil chance of rain.

We have a pop up tent we can use, but I’m hoping and praying we won’t have to use it at all.

@chocolatecoveredstrawberry:   I am…for sure, our ceremony is in a church, reception in a restaurant/bar so thats all good, but pictures are supposed to be at an outdoor location. I’m praying the rain holds off that day IF it rains at all until 3pm….after the pics and ceremony I cares not, before would stink I seriously want some outdoor shots!  Here it is saying 60% chance plus high 80’s…YUCK!
