You could actually get some really cool pictures if the sky is dark and stormy (although maybe not if it’s actually raining).

Provide bottles of water and fans if you can! Your guests will have so much fun they won’t even notice the heat! Wink

The postive:

1)Less expensive then June! Most popular month!

2) Most places have AC – make sure you get one!

3) Photos actually look BETTER right after a storm when everything is green and the sky is overcast…seriously. No one is squinting and light is filtered. Gorgeous.

4) Easier for guests to travel – as you mentioned.

5) Wonderful future anniversary vacations!

Things to keep in mind:

1) Book a photographer whose outdoor and INDOOR pics you like. A friend of mine booked a photographer who’s outdoor photos she loved and it rained ;( – the indoor ones were stiff.

2) Look for indoor alternative for photos, espcially, and venues, if you haven’t already.

3) I’ve seen some gorgeous wedding shots with umbrellas. Find some cute, cheap ones to bring along if the forecast looks iffy.

4) Consult with a makeup specialist  and hairstylist (can be a free consult) for options for heat, humidity, etc. These people are professionals and can recommend styles and products to keep in your emergency kit to combat any weather.

Best wishes from a fellow summer bride!

In terms of whether, it’s going to unpredictable no matter when you choose your date, at least in terms of rain or sun. And I think any summer day has the ability to be a scorcher. So try not to worry about it…it’s one thing you can’t control, but you can make plans for all the different scenarios so that you’re prepared and things still go beautifully! 🙂
