Just had an earthquake, yes – an EARTHQUAKE IN CT!! Buildings are being evacuated…
I have always had the worst luck… rain is my worst enemy. Not to mention that since I have been engaged and started to plan this wedding, my luck has only gotten worse.
What are the chances that Hurricane Irene comes on MY wedding day?! Are you kidding me…
I know that the news is not always correct with the weather but given this hurricane, my luck is not going to get any better! So I am a little sad and concerned.
Anyone else have lots of rain and winds on their wedding day??
How did you deal???

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:

I am glued to the news and weather channel… It is saying 8pm on Sunday CT will get hit the hardest and then Monday morning will be the Boston area.
I dont mind rain but I really dont want awful weather with out of town guests. I am sure our flight will be delayed Monday morning too…

Can you and your bridesmaids make a target run and get cute rainboots and cute umbrellas? I was in a wedding during a monsoon and we got the best pictures of us in boots and umbrellas jumping in mud puddles after the reception. There was a great one of the bride and groom kissing rain soaked. Very Notebook-esqu. You figure you will never wear the dress again, have fun with it if you can do photos after the reception.
For the ceremony– get dressed there and put a garbage bag over your head to protect your hair and makeup!

the boots and umbrella’s sound like such a cute idea
I couldn’t imagine the stress that you’re having. I hope that it all works out for you.

I regret to say we had to postpone our wedding from tomorrow. It’s just looking too dangerous, and it’s truly unbelievable. The NY Post did a story on us yesterday, which was the only somewhat amusing part of this. We have family here already from Israel and I feel terrible for putting them in the eye of the storm. It’s amazing how much time, effory and money goes into a wedding that can be destroyed intstantly. Did any of you ladies move off of wknd?

So sad that you had to go through all this, but you made the right decision.
Too ironic about all the weather related stories in your families – enjoy the honeymoon in Italy and then onto the wedding!

Love the boots and umbrellas idea. Just remember that a marriage is about weathering life’s storms together. Draw upon your fiance during this time and support each other through the stress. If you can handle this weekend even with the weather against you, you are getting good practice for a long and sometimes bumpy road ahead. And everyone knows that a wet knot is almost impossible to et untied.

Wow, I can only imagine how you feel right now! I live in Connecticut and I was suppose to go and check out a venue tomorrow while they were setting up for a wedding but I cancelled it because of Hurricane Irene. I can only imagine how you feel. Hopefully your wedding is scheduled for the evening and I pray that the weather calms down for you. If not you can pick up a few cute umbrellas and take great photos. Hopefully your photographer is creative like that. Good Luck =)
