We’re having a tent reception and an outdoor ceremony (finger crossed) but the forecast for my area is showing a 40-60% chance of thunderstorms every single day during my wedding week. I’ve pretty much resigned myself to the idea of huddling under a tent while it pours outside and either sqeezing under the tent for the ceremony, or into the house. My Fiance loves rainy weather so he’s hoping for rain. maybe he did a rain dance? (i’m going to look for some cute rain boots and an umbrella- we better make the msot of the weather either way)

I looked at a venue that had an outdoor terrace you could rent for 700 and in case of rain you could reserve the inside ballroom for only 200 extra. To rent the ballroom alone cost 2500.00. So I had a moment where I wanted to rent that place and was like maybe I can just hope for rain? I ended up going somewhere else, but this post reminded me of that.

If by rain on your wedding day you mean, rain early in the morning followed by a pretty rainbow….?

Otherwise, NO. My venue has huge floor to ceiling windows and we’re paying for a view! Rain would not make my day.

My mother told me that rain on your wedding day is good luck.

my ceremony and reception is outside. . .  in the open. . .with no tent. So no, I am not hoping for rain. Love rainy days when I am curled up on the couch though.

I planned my wedding assuming it would be a tornado outside, since east coast weather is totally unpredictible and June of 2009 set records for rainfall. I still hoped and prayed that it wouldn’t rain – the weather forecaset threatened, but it held off until the next day, hooray! 🙂

I’d be sad that my hair and dress would be wet. And I’d have to move most of my pictures indoors somewhere . But light rain could be romantic. I wouldn’t mind a picture of me running through the rain in cute rubber boot.

Absolutely not!  We have an outdoor ceremony and my hair frizzes at the slightest drop of humidity.

No… I’m hoping for, at the very least, no snow. (Hey, it wouldn’t be the first time!)

We had rain and it actually made for some really great pictures (umbrella shots in the rain!).  The lighting outside can be amazing when it’s cloudy!
