We had a heavy rainfall warning on my wedding day.  It rained so HARD.   I was so glad I had a bunch of huge black umbrellas and a great plan B for pictures.   Do you have any covered bridges in your area?   We had pictures in one and they turned out even better than plan A pictures would have.

Luckily, the earthquake sounds like it was minor and won’t affect your venue or wedding.

Deep breaths.  I know I was disappointed by my weather.  I had to give myself a pep talk.  I couldn’t control the weather but I was going to get to marry the love of my life anyway.  The pictures were beautiful and the day was really nice.  Our hair still looked perfect too.  😉

Wait, I’m confused.  Your date looks like it has passed, it says Aug 6.

@msrdsx82:  People will still have fun and you will still be celebrating your marriage to the love of your life, so screw the rain or weather! 🙂

PS. Edit your profile to change your wedding date.  Top right of the screen should be a link to your profile.  Then click the “profile” tab and edit the date.

Well chances are even if you get rain it won’t be that bad. I’ve seen a few of the projected paths and it’s too soon to tell which way it’ll go. (I’m worried about my bad luck too and that Mexico will get a hurricane when we’re supposed to go on our honeymoon.)

One of my photographer’s clients had hail predicted on her wedding day. And what do you know, one of the sneak peeks was a stunning shot of them with the sun poking through the trees!

a wedding is what you make of it.




My grandparents got married in a hurricane 55 years ago. Almost nobody showed up, but they got married anyways and were happily married for over 50 years. It made a hell of a story that they told for 50+ years. The marriage is what’s important, not who shows up for the wedding.

@msrdsx82: I’m getting married as well this Sunday, and NO ONE should go through what we’re going through right now. My excitement has turned to obsessing with the latest weather updates. I had a moron friend actually ask if I was rescheduling the wedding. We specifically picked our venue because of the beautiful outdoors where we won’t be able to take any photos now.

My brother got married last September and up to 2 days before a hurricane was predicted to be making its way up the east coast. They got blue skies and perfect, mild weather! Try to be zen about it – you can’t control the weather, and it is still early to have really accurate predications of what you’ll get.

@msrdsx82: Isn’t rain on your wedding day good luck? I wonder what kind of great luck a hurricane will bring? Glass half full?

All jokes aside, I would be really stressed out but I’m sure that everyone will still have an amazing time!

I’m in the same boat as you and Rona – wedding this Sunday on the water in Westchester.  Let’s keep each other updated as best we can, and if anyone else has any ideas, stories or happy thoughts, please throw them our way!

We had torrential downpours on our wedding day and it was still wonderful!  I second BayStateBride ,  remember this is the day your are marrying the love of your life – celebrate it!

I feel for all of you.  After all the planning, you want it to be “perfect,” but you can’t control the weather – so have a good “Plan B”.  We planned the ceremony outside, oceanfront.  Didn’t happen.  But we were able to use the college’s chapel and it was still lovely.  As others have said, have umbrellas ready.  In retrospect, I for the would’ve used more hairspray to fight the humidity.  On the upside, noone was too hot at my August wedding, probably not at yours either!

As one guest told me, “a wet knot is harder to untie”.

You can see some photos, including “the umbrella shot” here:
