    I’d pay the $150.00. An umbrella is fine if its a light mist or something but what if its a downpour? You spend all this time and effort on the wedding, do you want to risk things falling apart over 150 dollars?

    @cora_123:  Agreed – get the permit.  Asking guests to bring umbrellas and rain boots in the event of rain is not a viable rain plan.  As a guest I would not enjoy huddling under an umbrella if it’s anything more than a light drizzle.

    I, too, am having my ceremony in a state park.  But it is in Ohio…and Ohio is notorious for unpredictable weather.  I plan on informing my guests that if there is rain the ceremony will take place within the reception hall (which others have done—its a beautiful hall with a grand entrance—but the “aisle” is a little short).  I’m sending out good vibes to Mother Nature, just in case.

    We have an indoor venue backup but I might get an umbrella too, especially if it’s just a drizzle.
