    I had an outdoor ceremony as original planned! I loved it!

    I had an outdoor ceremony and regret not using/having a back-up plan.

    I had to use a back-up plan and glad I did it.

    As a guest, the weather you’re describing sounds really uncomfortable and would probably prevent me from enjoying the ceremony or the reception.  The cold gets into your bones and it takes forever to warm up. Get at least a tent with heaters or do the indoor ceremony. You will be just as married when the day is done, and you can still have all the photos you want outside with your new husband without dragging your poor guests outside to get rained on.

    Yeah, sorry.

    I don’t want to stand around in the cold and rain just so you can have a mountain in the background of your pictures. I know it sucks but you should think about the comfort of the guests and move things indoors if its going to be cold and rainy/snowy.

    I would definitely rather be in a less attractive room than sitting through an outside ceremony in the snow or rain.

    It sucks that it won’t be how you imagine but that is the risk you take in those kinds of areas at this time of year.

    Sorry but I would be annoyed at that temperature even if it wasn’t raining or snowing. I typically wear dresses to weddings and while I would obviously have a jacket, I would be freezing (also I’m a WI gal so I’m not saying that as someone who isn’t used to the cold).

    I would just plan to do the ceremony inside and take pictures with the mountains as your backdrop.

    beccasy :  I have to agree with everyone else, move it inside. That is what a back-up plan is for, right?

    FWIW, I had an outdoor ceremony and it rained the day before the wedding. I knew my wedding day was going to be sunny, but I was still prepared to move the ceremony to the back-up location if it would have been muddy.  

    Be considerate to your guests.

    Use your backup plan and you and Fiance can take all the pics you want of the two of you outside in the rain and cold, while your guests are warm and dry inside during cocktail hour.
