Our venue has their own windowed tent they’ll set up in case of rain. It was one of their selling points that they have a rain plan ready to go.

It totally rained on my wedding day!  Just remember to make the best of your day and enjoy it because you can’t control the weather, and it’s not worth letting your day be ruined over it!  One of my friends had the best idea though…it rained on her wedding day, but she bought all of her bridesmaids cute rain boots and patterned umbrellas, and it made for AMAZING photos!

Yes, but at the end of the day, I will still be married to the love of my life 🙂  Our venue does have a nice space inside for us if weather doesn’t cooperate.

I’m worried about rain, cold, sleet, snow, wind..and even the possibility of it being too hot. Who the heck knows. LOL. Oh well, we will be married at the end of the day no matter what right?

I’m hiring a marquee from my venue at a $400 cost. If it rains it rains. I’m not too worried it’s spring here in Australia.

I have a backup plan (everyone sits in their dinner seats and watches as we get married in front of the head table) but I don’t want to use it. I am really trying not to think about it.

According to the Farmers’ Almanac website, it has only rained in Pittsburgh on 10/6 ONCE in 16 years. I go back and forth between thinking that means it probably won’t rain on our day and thinking that we’re about due for rain that day. Again, trying not to think about it. Last year it was 80 degrees and sunny!

cermony is in a church… and reception is in a golf club. While no rain would be great, so we can set up tables and stuff outside the main reception area for people to chit chat… It’s not a huge concern for me!

We plan on getting married outside in the hunt country of Virginia.  I’m hoping the leaves are at their peak because it will be beautiful.  If it rains we’ll just get married in our cabin.  We’re eloping and it will only be the 2 of us so it’s no big deal to move things.

@Firinne:  I’m a bit more worried about snow. But, we do have a chapel as a backup in case it gets bad. I can handle a sprinkling of snow.

I wouldn’t be worried.

 

Save your worry for things that you can control!

I’m going to buy some pretty umbrellas for the bridal party the week before if it looks like rain.

We’re outside under a huge gazebo with steps and wood and custom wrought-iron glass windows, but there’s no cover for the guests (other than some trees to the side). If it rains (which it won’t, it doesn’t rain in October in Phoenix, all the rain happens in August) then we can move it inside to the banquet hall, which is also gorgeous.

We’re getting married outside of my home church. In the event of rain the ceremony will be moved 200 feet to the left into the Sanctuary 🙂

Well, if it makes OP feel better, the last time it rained in my neck of these Florida woods (North/Central, near G’ville) on October 27 was in the 1990’s.  Date twin!!
