I would just create a backup plan in case it does rain. I think you can still have your plan to be the backyard wedding, but if it rains then have an indoor area you can move to. Ultimately you can’t predict the weather so I wouldn’t stress too much, just try to have some plans in place if it does rain.

I agree with @MissCheeky.  A plan B is a must.  You can never rely on the weather.  I don’t think there is anything wrong with finding another venue if that is what you want.  What about a tent in your backyard?

You can rent something that has a waterproof “roof”, I want to call it a tent but its not like a camping tent. You can set it up in case it rains & decorate it all pretty :).

Would it be too much trouble to rent a tent just in case? You can rent some of those clear plastic sides to keep your guests from getting wet.

We’re getting married in our backyard in VA on the same day you are!  We have 2 tents reserved in case it rains – one for the ceremony and one for the reception.  So we’re in the same boat you are…obviously we’re hoping that it doesn’t rain but just remember your wedding day will be great no matter what the weather is like!

You could always put together a last minute bucket of umbrellas & flip flops for your guest to kick off their shoes and not have to worry about getting wet or muddy.  Maybe get a hold of people and tell them to make their dresses short & tell the guys to bring shorts for the reception… you might have to make it a little more informal to keep it outside.

Have a back up plan for the ceremony & look at “carpeting” under the tent with “astroturf” or something that will prevent the sog!  Look into a tent with sides that can be closed.

If the outdoor wedding is what you envisioned.. just make it work… i think it will be much less stress for you in the long run, and if it doesn’t rain the umbrellas and flip flops can be favors, the sides of the tent can be pulled back & everything will be fine!
