I had planned an October wedding hoping it would be filled with bright sunshine and beautiful fall foliage. Unfortunately it’s going to be cold, rainy and yes…windy! EEK! Although I’ve wanted to break down and cry every other minute, I am now embracing mother nature furry and going with the flow. Please show me your pictures of your not so ideal wedding weather pics!

Your day will be beautiful no matter what! I spent a lot of time panicking about the rain, but eventually I just let it go, and enjoyed it! It makes for GORGEOUS photos because the light is so great. And it’s good luck! I was VERY glad I had my hair up, though…just a thought! Have a fabulous wedding!

I don’t have pics, but my cousin got married on a blustery, chilly, muddy day in the middle of July. It was supposed to be warm and sunny, but that northern Canadian weather had other ideas!
My cousin’s wedding was gorgeous. They had tons of beautiful photos. They had a great time, and you will too.

Oh and to cheer you up, read about Mrs. Hummingbird’s weather-related wedding hijinx.
Here she panics about the weather when the forecast calls for rain: http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/07/17/mrs-hummingbirds-wedding-morning-a-recipe-for-success/
And here is hands-down the funniest post I’ve ever read on Weddingbee, courtesy of her husband Mr. Hummingbird, in which he deals with the aftermath of that storm: http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/07/18/mr-hummingbirds-wedding-morning-the-weddening-part-1/
…and that in which everything turns out okay: http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/07/18/mr-hummingbird%E2%80%99s-wedding-morning-the-weddening-part-2/
Her story definitely proves that bad wedding weather won’t ruin your wedding day.

Me! It got me down for a long time because we had to move our outdoor ceremony indoors but we still got AMAZING pics and still did our First Look Outdoors. You can check out the first look here and here are some rainy day pics.

Thanks for all your posts ladies!!! They made me smile!
@chelseamorning Those blogs were hysterical!!! I was cracking up the whole time!
The forecast changed a bit to take out the rain but I seriously might get blown away by the 50 mph wind gusts…guess I’ll just have the model wind in the face look 🙂

It was about 90 degrees and 100% humidity on my wedding day and while we were absolutely melting, you actually couldn’t tell in pictures, it just looked like a beautiful summer day. Now when I remind people of how hot it was on my wedding day, it takes a second to register and they’r elike “Oh yeah, I forgot!” Which is the whole point – people will only remember how awesome the overall event was, not the weather.

I just want to say to make your photog go out, mine didn’t want too and we got no outside pics after the ceremony, even though the rain had stopped. She was like you’ll get your dress wet, well we could have used the parking lot or covered porch at the lodge. Just be prepared to push your photog a bit. We got a few outside photos of us separately before the ceremony but none together. We got mostly church pics due to the weather which is the last thing I wanted. Yeah, we got some nice photos and maybe I feel better about them in five years or so.
