aww, you poor thing! I planned my wedding assuming it would be raining cats and dogs like it did the prior year, making a lot of aesthetic sacrifices. Of course it didn’t rain after all my preparation!

It has been scorching hot here and before my wedding I looked up the forecast and the one…and only day it showed rain was on my wedding day. I had an inside wedding but all the photos were planned for outside and I didnt have back up….i cried.

 

It didnt rain, and it was so bloody hot people sweated through there shirts ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Keep you chin up…crazier things have happened!!

Weather can change in the next 2-3 days, and who knows!  Maybe it doesn’t rain at all.   ๐Ÿ™‚  I’m always the glass is half full kind of person.  And if it does rain on the day of, I hope that you’re so distracted by all the excitement around you that you don’t really care about the change of plans.  I’ll keep my fingers crossed for no rain!

Keeping my fingers crossed that it won’t rain for you. The weather isn’t always right! Most of the time they are wrong! No worries! Somehow it work out one way or another-don’t fret!

yep, keep your fingers crossed.  5 days before my wedding they were predicting 22 and cloudy.  On the actual day it was 38 and not a cloud in sight!

I am in exactly the same boat. Ceremony at 4 on Sunday. I’m hoping for the best for both of us.

Oh sweetie, it’ll be okay!  My wedding was also outdoors and the forecast predicted rain for days beforehand–it DID rain, pretty much all day, which is why my pictures involve umbrellas (and are super cute!), but right as we were finishing pictures and going to get ready for the ceremony…it stopped.  The clouds parted, the sun came out, and the rest of the evening was beautiful.  So even though the forecast said it was going to rain. all. day. we got the break we needed!  We made all sorts of provisions for the rain, and I wasn’t stoked about any of them, but we didn’t need them.  Just be super prepared, and what will be will be.  At the end of the day you’ll be married, even if you’re wet and muddy.  And rain makes GORGEOUS pictures.  Good luck!

My photographer told me that unless it absolutely pours, you should do it outside anyway. Hand out umbrellas, and carry one yourself.

I ahve seen many adorable photos done with umbrellas. So unless you really have a downpour, go with it!

Besides, if it does rain it is lucky!  My mom said it makes the knot tighter ๐Ÿ™‚

I wish you lots of good luck! I too am planning an outdoor ceremony. Its a big risk for having outdoor beauty for a wedding. But you have to understand the risk and be ok with it when you plan it for outside. Life is a gamble. And I hope you win big on your big day!

 I had rain/thunderstorms forecast the entire week before my wedding up until the day before. I was a mess and it turned out sunny and clear. Don’t lose hope ๐Ÿ™‚

Keep your spirits up! Everything will work out either way. We got married outside in June, and the forecast predicted thunderstorms starting late afternoon. Our ceremony was to begin at 5:30. We did pictures beforehand, and when we left our hotel, the radar showed a big stretch of storm clouds coming our way. They never hit us, and we found out the whole storm diverted south. We had a few sprinkles late in the evening, but otherwise it was perfect.

I worked myself up the entire week before thinking everything was going to be ruined, and it wasn’t worth the stress Even if it had rained, I realized the day of that I didn’t care – I was getting MARRIED! Don’t get too worried about the forecast ahead of time, because it can always change. I will keep my fingers crossed for you!
