Not silly at all!  Those are all valid concerns and we had the same ones.  Our venue had a couple of guys with umbrellas escorting ladies from cars into the venue to make sure they didn’t slip and to keep dry.  One of the ushers was on a simlar duty at the church.

it rained on my wedding day… ALL DAY LONG!! The priest ended up being half an hour late due to the rain, but as if by magic… as soon as I left the hotel to go to the Church, the clouds opened up and the sun came out, it was magical and nor the rain, not the delays took anything away from the most awesome day of your life. You are there to marry your guy, and in the end that is all you will remember.

It rained all day on my wedding day. As soon as we said our vows the sky opened up and the sun came out. People were joking how God & Mother Nature approved after all. But getting ready and getting there was really annoying and it was hard to take outdoor pictures. But you’re not taking pics outdoors at least so you won’t have to worry about being all soggy and muddy! Thank goodness the forecast changed. Are they ever really right with that stuff???

My wedding ceremony was on a rooftop overlooking the ocean…My 10 day forecast said the same thing and I was FREAKING OUT… My husband (then FI) banned me from looking at the weather forecasts becuase they all said RAIN RAIN RAIN.  I was so busy with the last minute things that I did my best not to think of it….But the 2 days before the wedding were cloudy and rainy, and then…for our rehearsal dinner, which was also outdoor/poolside at the resort overlooking the ocean, the rain stopped.  It was still cloudy but no rain.  And I thought, “Okay, maybe this will happen tomorrow! I can handle cloudy as long as there’s no rain!”  Well there was not a cloud in the sky the next day…It could not have been more amazing!  I checked my phone’s weather app, and it still said RAIN RAIN RAIN, but it was sunny and beautiful next to the ocean, and our day was perfect!

How’s this for a rainy forecast? 

Good luck!  I’ll keep my fingers crossed for sunshine!

@Evie19: oh yes – it can change.  Ours was on the beach and it forecasted cold and rain for 4 days around our day.  It poured two days before, but we had wonderful, warm weather on the day of!!!  So it can definitely change – it did for us!

We’re in New England, where the adage is “If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute!” so I’ve tried to avoid looking at a forecast. Well, I cheated… and right now it calls for snow showers on Saturday (welcome dinner) and overcast & warmish (44 degrees) on wedding day. That’s just about as perfect as we could want, so I’m *really* hoping it stays that way!

It can definitely change!

Even if it doesn’t though… I hear it’s good luck! My parents got married on a very rainy day, and they have the most adorable pictures! The bridesmaids wore their plastic dress bags over their dresses to get from the limo into the church, and those photos are great! There are some awesome photos of my mom getting out of the limo, with the limo driver holding an umbrella over her, and she’s wearing these awesome bright yellow heels so her white wedding heels wouldn’t get wet. So adorable!

Message me, too!Smile I hope everything goes really really well. And don’t worry too much about the rain. I had lots of rain on my wedding date, yes, it was kind of annoying but in the end we got to see a beautiful rainbow on the way to the reception hall. How about that?Wink
