So now that my big day is almost here I am now obsessed with the weather. And my worst fear has come true…
not only will it rain, but there will be thunderstorms andddd it will be humid. I have very curly hair and no matter how much hair spray you put in my hair, it will frizz and curl right back up.
so now not only do I fear having shitty wedding pictures bc I won,t be able to go outside but I fear looking like shit as well.
I am praying more than ever that this changes. I loathe the rain.

@Daizy914: the forecast 2 weeks out isn’t accurate. Even if it is there is no sense worrying about something you cannot control. If you’re having an outdoor wedding, make sure your back up plan is ready to go just in case.

I don’t know how accurate your long range weather forecasting is (admittedly weather is easy to predict in some parts of the US than it is over here) but I’d not be getting too worried while you still have nearly a fortnight to go. Also, rain can really add to the pictures provided you are prepared for it and a thunderstorm can make for a fabulous background. Just make sure you have umbrellas available but right now, don’t assume your weather will be awful.
As a pp has said, when it come down to it you have no control over the weather. However, you can work around it.

@Daizy914: yikes, well let’s hope the forecast will change. I have to believe there is an anti humidity product you can use?

@Daizy914: Don’t worry at all.
- First of all the weather forecast changes way too much to rely on it two weeks out.
- Also thunderstorms make for some GREAT photos (I’ve seen a friend’s photos and I almost wished that it poured on my wedding day because of it!) if it’s overcast then the lighting is so flattering in photos (no undereye shadows and the appearance of baby smooth skin)
- As for the hair, I have long curly hair and got married in San Francisco (the most humid place on earth!) here’s what you do. After showering shake your head like a dog and leave it soaking wet with your head upside down. Spray with marc anthony curling spray then scrunch in Marc Anthony styling cream (not the lotion) then and most importantly scrunch in Paul Mitchell’s conditioning styling foam (about the size of an apple – it’ll seem like a ton). Then blow-dry your head upside down with a difuser until about 80% dry. Do your updo while it’s still a tad wet and the products will dry in the shape of your updo.
- Alternatively, curl it all with a small barrel surling iron and hairspray the shit out of it!

You’re still a ways out. There’s no way to know whether the forecast is accurate that far out. if it’s any consolation, I was also obsessed with the weather. For 2 weeks before my wedding, I checked multiple times a day, and there was always a 70-100% chance of rain. It didn’t look good. When I woke up the morning of the wedding, the first thing I did was check the weather- and guess what? Clear skies and 0% chance of rain. So don’t worry about it too much, but have a backup plan in case… I had all my bridesmaids bring their rainboots, and Darling Husband and I had an agreement, if it was going to rain, he would run out that morning and buy a bunch of cute umbrellas, so that if the worst case scenario did happen, at least we would get great pictures out of it.

@Daizy914: I wouldn’t worry! It POURED the two weeks before our wedding, we got an 18-hour window of sunshine from 30 minutes before the ceremony into that night, and it went back to raining the next morning!
So you never know!

@Daizy914: It can totally change, don’t stress yet. Hell, my wedding is in October and I’m already looking at the long range forecast/farmers almanac hahaha!! My entire wedding is outside, so I can feel your pain when it comes to bad weather!!!

@Daizy914: Its too early to tell if its going to rain. You just need to make sure you have a backup and relax. The weather said it would be warm and sunny on my wedding day with 20% chance of rain two weeks out. The night before our wedding, what really happened was a large circulation (possible tornado) went over dallas with large hail and we were all evacuated to the hotels basement. So, the night before the wedding, with sirens soudning, we were all sitting in a dirty parking garage with 100% humidity hoping there wasnt a tornado. The rain continued until the next morning (wedding day) and heavy clouds with strong chance of rain lingered all the way up to 3 pm that day. Our photographer ensured us that rainy photos look phenomenal and for us not to worry. Well, as soon as the photographer arrived, the clouds slowly started to part. It was still really humid and really hot, but the day was perfect. Just relax and know it will all work out!
ETA: I did a recap if you want to see how the pics turned out!

Relax. You can’t control the weather. Humidity was about 90% on my wedding day. It is what it is.
