Ever since I started thinking about ny wedding (even just vaguely), I’ve always pictured it being outside- I’m not a church person, so that was never an option, and I always loved the thought of having an outdoor ceremony. I’m also a person who seems to have terrible luck when it comes to important things- a shining example is in grade 10, my class was taking a huge, 5 day trip to another province. We had been planning, fundraising and looking forward to the trip for 3 years. I was so excited! Then the day before we left I got appendicitis, had to have emergency surgery, and missed the whole thing 🙁 haha. Looking back its kind of funny, but what a disappointment.
So, knowing I’ve always wanted an outdoor ceremony, there has always been that little voice in the back of my head that says “it’s going to rain. You KNOW it’s going to rain. How could it NOT rain and ruin your plans”. So when it came time to actually plan my real wedding, of course I plan an outdoor ceremony, while trying to squash that little voice. Since July, the weather here has been beautiful. And I’ve paid particular attention to Saturday weather 😛 all gorgeous. Two weeks ago, when the two week forecast came out, I started to monitor this Saturdays weather- it was stuck steadily on “sun & cloud”. Great!
Two days ago it changed to chance of showers. I was sad, but my Fiance reminded me nothing’s overly accurate until the three day forecast comes out. So today the first thing I did was of course check the weather- there’s a WEATHER WARNING for rain for the WHOLE WEEKEND
So of course nothing is guaranteed, we can move the ceremony inside if need be, it only needs to not rain for 30 minutes, but I’m so bummed 🙁 I mean, my venue double booked me and my photographer bailed on me without notice 6 months out and I brushed that off, but this weather thing really ruins my whole wedding vision. It will not look nearly as nice inside and it destroys a lot of the plans for things I’ve spent hours DIY-ing. I cried longer than I’d like to admit this morning.
Anyway, I guess I’m just posting for some good vibes, stories of how you made a rainy wedding day work, something to cheer me up, anything. My strategy for coping with disappointment is to wallow in it for a small period of times, get all my feelings out, then move on. Right now I’m in the wallowing stage, haha.
