(Closed) It rained on my wedding day :(

I went to a wedding this past weekend where it began pouring, with horizontal winds, 5 minutes before the ceremony.  I heard that the bride was traumatized.  They moved it inside, but the space was too spall for seating, so we all stood.  It actually felt more intimate that way.  She might not get the pictures she’d hoped for, but I feel like the ceremony was actually more magical inside, as it was, than had it been outside.

It rained on mine but coulda cared less. That’s the chance you take with an outdoor ceremony. Its sad some brides feel traumatized when it happens but what do you expect? Just go with it and still have fun! Myself, I would have gotten some pictures at the end in the rain…how romantic would that be! Just think of the positive and remember the good stuff. Weather is one thing you can’t control in wedding planning!

Oh, honey my mom always said “Rain makes the knot tighter!  I hope that you have happy wedding day memories. 

My husband’s brother-in-law told my mom that it was “family tradition to kidnap the groom From the Reception.  NOT a tradition in either of our families, and so guess who was at our reception ALONE, with a groom who they returned drunk, cause the wouldn’t return him to the reception until he drank X amount of drinks.  Neither one of us was happy with that memory, even years later   🙁
