I probably have the same wedding date as you.  First of all, forecasts 3 weeks out are basically worthless.  Less than a week out is when they start to become more accurate but even then it could change.  Do you have a good rain plan?  I knew this was a possibility from the start with my date so we picked a venue that was beautiful inside and out.  Look into getting cute umbrellas for you and the wedding party for pictures.  Google rainy day wedding pictures, it is just as beautiful.  It’s really nothing to be upset about.  You’ll still get married and everyone will be just as happy (as long as you have a rain plan!)

it was a little misty/drizzly when we went outside to take first look pictures but cleared up soon after.  we had planned everything for inside with cocktail hour able to use the outdoor patio if it was nice and it was.

I got married on June 3 with outdoor ceremony on a pier and indoor reception immediately following at same location. We had a back up rain plan in place, but decided that morning to keep it outdoors even though the forecast called for some rain. It was cloudy but seemed it wouldn’t rain until much later. Buuuuuuut… of course… as soon as I walked down the aisle it started sprinkling. Luckily our ceremony was literally only 5 minutes long, performed by my H’s uncle, so our guests didn’t have to stay in the rain long. When the ceremony wrapped up, it started raining very hard so it ended just in time. No one seemed to mind that they got a little wet and many guests commented on how it is good luck for it rain on your wedding day. Also, our wedding photos turned out beautifully with a misty rain on the water. Just have a rain plan in place and you should be fine!

According to many of the sites I just checked, forecasts more than ten days out are pretty much pointless. I suggest not checking the weather again until a couple days before, by then it will be much more accurate.
