It actually did end up snowing for our wedding, and it turned out our guests (most from Louisiana) loved getting to play in it.

I worried about rain, but we lucked out and didn’t get any ๐Ÿ™‚ We had an outdoor wedding, but had a backup plan incase of foul weather, but it just wasn’t as nice as being oustide. Good luck!

With the exception of our dinner which will be inside the club house, the rest of our wedding day will hopefully be outside.  Ceremony, cocktail hour, and dancing under the stars, I hope.  I have such big plans for how the decor will look amongst the mature trees that are on the golf course, that it will be a little heart breaking if we have to move it all inside.  Not to mention the deposit on the tents and rentals that we are paying for for the outside stuff.  Buuuuuuuuuut worst case scenerio, we will have the whole wedding inside the club house, and it will be absolutely lovely.  ๐Ÿ™‚

Our date is Dec 14 and we are going to be just outside of Baltimore Maryland.  I am really hoping no rain but I actually want snow!  I am not sure what I will do if it is warm and sunny…all the dresses and everything were picked for cold weather, lol.  Knowing my luck I will get rain, oh well, its supposed to be good luck, right?

I’m pretty much convinced that it will rain on my wedding day. I live in Cleveland, Ohio. The big joke around here is "Don’t like the weather? Wait a minute…it will change." We’re getting married on May 22 so it could be anywhere from a balmy 80 degrees to a cold and dreary 50 degrees. The thing is, I figure if I’m prepared for cold rainy weather, then I wont be disappointed when it happens. And if it turns out to be sunny then YAY for us!! I don’t know the last time it’s snowed in May in Cleveland, though, but ya never know.

Always have a backup! You are so smart for doing that! If it rains, you’ll get sick of hearing "rain is good luck," so think of this: "don’t judge a day by it’s weather." You have no control over that situation, but you can plan for keeping yourself and guests warm, dry, and happy, and having things run as smoothly as possible in case Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate. 

Also, don’t forget about a backup location for your rehearsal. Your Rehearsal Dinner location can work for this: the most important thing to cover who walks in and out with whom and the order of ceremony.

Can you put up tents if it does rain at all?  And does it have to be outdoors?  Because I’ve been to some wedding venues here in San Diego where they take weddings indoors when rain occurs as a backup since whether is never 100% predictable.

I’m worried about rain or cold temperatures!  Our wedding is technically on the second day of Spring – but March in Atlanta could be 70 and snowing, could be pouring rain, or could be nice weather but 40 degrees.  I’m honestly more worried about cold temperatures than anything – if it is beautiful out but freezing I don’t know if it is fair to insist people be outside – let alone walk down the aisle in what will (hopefully) be a strapless dress!

I’m getting married outside on Saturday and I have been stalking the weather!! One day it says 60% rain, then 0%, then 30%…I am so stressed. Also all of the weather websites each say something different. Literally I have been checking 4 sites with 4 totally different forecasts. I am giving it until Tuesday before I go into full on panic mode. Our wedding AND reception are outdoors with little space for a tent to go for backup. Please send sunny wedding day prayers my way!

I’m getting married at the end of May next year in NYC, and considering how the weather’s been recently, I’m afraid it will be frigidly cold, extremely hot, or downpouring!

Aw yay for helpful "crews" lol. Go to Sam’s Club and pick up some quick-melt stuff to throw on the stairs, etc so nobody slips.

We’re worried about rain. We get LOTS of rain here in the midwest, esp in mid-june. It’s raining all week right now. I"m hoping for a sunny, nice, not too warm June 20th. If it rains, our outdoor ceremony gets moved to the location’s backup–a quaint, wooden old school chapel above the reception hall. Our pics might suck, and if they do, I’m going to rehire my photographer for a post-wedding photo session and get all dolled up again. 

Stuff happens! I can’t fix the weather and worrying about it doesn’t help. All you can do is prepare!!!! Target has umbrellas, so if rain is projected, I’ll swing by and pick up a bunch for my ladies and I!

I’m worried about rain, even tornado like weather, but that’s what back-up plans are for.  Glad you have one!
