it rained on my best friends wedding day, and her pictures were beautiful!   she bought an adorable umbrella and cute rain boots and they were perfect.  photogs actually prefer rainy days because the sun doesnt make everyone squint!

@Janaic88:  it’s still 8 days away. The weather changes so much. I say stop looking at the weather bc there’s nothing you can do about it.

We attended a wedding where it was raining right before the ceremony started. It was fine. The bride just avoided very wet ground so she didn’t sink into the dirt. Her dress had a long train and it did get a little dirty, but it didn’t show up in photos. The plus side about rain on your wedding day is that you get rainbows and the sky has so much depth to it rather than just sky blue.

I think the wedding pics in the rain with umbrellas and rain boots are the cutest!

I agree with the other bees go get some cute rainy day props and make the most of it. I would hate for you to miss out on great photos! I have seen some spectacular mid-rain and after rain shots.

And try to keep calm as a lot can happen between today and the 16th with the weather.

I agree you can get some great shots in the rain. Guess you will have to convince yourself that if it does, you’ll just go with the flow and it will be fine. Have somebody availabe to help you fix your hair and makeup if needed, and go and enjoy your wedding! (and make sure you have a hairdryer handy to dry off your dress).

Agreed with above! Or just be flexible and ready to shoot photos as soon as you get a few minutes of sun. Alternatively, my friend had a photo shoot a few days after the wedding (everyone got all dressed up again) because heavy clouds + Northern European winter = no sunlight ever, and wedding photos should not require nighttime photography ๐Ÿ˜› It was a lot of fun, and way less stressful since we had the whole day.

That is 8 days from now. Just as it was a totally different forecast yesterday, it could be completely different 5, 6 7 days from now. Have a contingency plan (cute umbrella and rain boots!) and just see what happens ๐Ÿ™‚
