@Mrzstgo5:  I watched the weather for my friend’s wedding because she was too scared to. When it was 10 days out, it was a 100% chance of rain, but as it got closer the rain cleared and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky on the actual day. 12 days out is too long to really know what’s going to happen with the weather, so don’t worry too much yet!

Honestly the weather changes so often it is hard to predict that far away. Do you have a back up plan in the event of rain?

i would say for you to not look at the weather until about 2-3 days out… i guarantee it will change like 50 times before then πŸ™‚

Best of luck!

You are toooo cute because you remind me of my friend who just got married last weekend. She had an outdoor ceremony as well, and for two weeks prior, she checked the wether every day. It was SO up and down, and I would say that it was more forcasting rain than sunny and even I was beginning to be skeptical that it was going to be an outdoor event.

HOWEVER-it changed completely three days before and we had sun, sun sun for the whole weekend, even though just ten days before, it was forcasting rainshowers and thunderstorms.

Let this be a lesson to you: the weather changes all the time and it is too darn EARLY to be stressing over weather forcecasts , period. Stop doing this to yourself!!!!!

Think of how beautiful you will look and your lucky groom to be, and just try to relax until the big day. πŸ™‚

12 days and 20 level anxiety? Sounds about right. πŸ™‚  

(9 days out I had a mini-melt down, and told FI “I quit, I’m not doing anymore wedding stuff!”)

Do you have a rain plan? Can you get umbrellas in your wedding colors? An option for a tent? Having a Plan B will help your anxiety level (as will wine and yoga)

I’ve also been stalking the weather channel…figure if it does start to rain during our outdoor ceremony, we’ll tell everyone to pick up their chairs and head inside the reception area, to finish the service.

I am getting married on July 21st and am also having an outdoor wedding.  I won’t even look at the weather until we have only 5 days until the wedding because the forecast is never accurate this far in advance.  I am Italian and Irish so I am following some old family traditions.  1 week before the wedding I will hang a rosary out my window (italian supersticion) and hide a bottle of whiskey in my bushes (Irish) to keep the rain away. 

However, if it does still rain, I will not let it ruin my day, embrace what you can.  Like you said it is noone else’s day but yours and your groom’s.  ENJOY IT πŸ™‚

Since you have a solid rain plan, you’re good to go. And if it *does* rain, your photographer could do something like this (check out their first look half way down):


(I *love* the photo where the umbrella tries to escape! You just have to go with the flow!)

I UNDERSTAND COMPLETELY.  10 days left, and eating and sleeping are becoming… um… hindered. 

I’m also having an outdoor ceremony.  I’m less worried about rain, and more worried about excessive heat.
