I’m glad you’re feeling much better today! I’m sure you’ll still have a lovely wedding, rain or shine, and what’s most important is you’re getting married to the man you love while surrounded by the people that love you both. Have a blast! And maybe wear a panty liner just in case he’s right lol

It will all be fine. Looking back on it you won’t remember all of this stresses so don’t worry about them now. 

It rained on our wedding day and I was upset because I wanted to get married outdoors in the garden, luckily it stopped right before we had to make the call and it was beautiful and perfect. Rain happens. You can’t control the weather, guests will have a good time regardless .

Our honeymoon was just one terrible incident after another. We went to Puerto Rico and while we were traveling on our way there, there was a fire at their power plant. We landed to a dark airport. It was scary. No one told us what was going on until our taxi driver finally told us. The power in the whole city was mostly out except for those place that had back up generators. Luckily, our little boutique hotel did but more other places were closed for a good chunk of time while we were there. The big resorts didn’t use their generator to light the rooms of the guests and instead used to to power their casino. We were so lucky that we had air-conditioning. πŸ˜‚ we didn’t get to do and see as many things while we were there because many places were closed. Which was a bummer. 

We went hiking in the tropical forest and I got bit by the Puerto Rican ant in the beginning of our trip which was similar to the Red Ant (but worse) and had a terrible allergic reaction. My crazy itching didn’t take away from the beautiful sights though and luckily our tour guide had a benadryl cream that slightly helped. 

After our time in Puerto Rico, (5 days, I think, most of which everything was closed) we went on a cruise. And guess what? We got hit with a hurricane (Hurricane Matthew) so our itinerary kept getting changed due to the hurricane. We didn’t get to stop at some ports because the hurricane had hit them or was heading that way and the ones that we did get to stop had many stores or places closed. So it didn’t feel like we got the true Island experiences (not that I fault anyone for not being opened, I would have been much more concerned about the hurricane in their place too). And then one night on the cruise we actually got hit by the hurricane! (probably outskirts of it) but the boat was rocking like crazy, the staff were handing out barf bags and Dramamine like they were party bags. It was crazy. We weren’t allowed outside because of the high winds (135+). We paid for a balcony and hardly got to use it. πŸ˜‚ the staff has to come into our room and remove all balcony furniture too.

It was nuts!! But it was still an amazing honeymoon because of who I got to send it with. You will still have a great time and there are worse things then some mildly cold weather. I promise you will still have a great time if you look at it positively and just enjoy whatever comes your way.

Gosh, nothing that is going wrong is your fault at all! Everyone on the planet takes their chances with the weather. You have backup plans, so just go with them.

If your son has seen a doctor and is treating his strep throat, I wouldn’t worry too much about that either. Kids can be sick one hour and running around the next, they are pretty tough. He could do his RB duties and take it easy. 

When I was a Maid/Matron of Honor for a wedding, my period was going to start the next day. So I put on a pantiliner. Later in the evening, it was gone. I never did figure out what happened to it!
