I wouldn’t worry about the rain and plan on the backyard event like you envision it. If a few days before the wedding predicts rain, you can always pick up some super cheap (and cute) umbrellas from the dollar store!

If you both want an outdoor wedding, just do it but have a plan (umbrellas versus a whole other facility). That’s just my opinion though. I got lucky and chose a place that will be outdoors with no rain, but moved indoors if it happens to rain.

Good luck! Hope it doesn’t rain for you!!!

Well, if it were me, and it hadn’t rained in 10 years, I’d put money down that it’s more likely it WON’T than it will. Know what I mean? Just my opinion. 🙂

Texas weather is completely unpredictable but anywhere really is if you choose to have your wedding outside with no back up plan.  I would really really think about having it outside.  While you may save on cost of having it at your place you really should try to find something where perhaps you can marry outside and then your reception inside that way should it rain you have a back up plan.  If there is a VA hall close by that could be  cheap option.  I had a friend have her reception at one and it was pretty nice she just had to dress up the tables quite a bit.

Get a back up plan girl or you’ll be going nuts in the weeks before checking the weather!

As another Texas resident I can understand your worries of HARD rain.  Growing up in other parts of the country (and the world) I never saw it rain like it does in Houston.

Is your identified rain venue is nearby? You could always let people know about the potential rain venue in advance – maybe with an invitation insert or on your website.  If it’s a downpour kind of day people will know to head right over there.  If it’s sunny they’ll go straight to the outdoor venue.  If it’s a toss-up (say, a 40% chance of rain, or just looking kind of dark) people might go to the wrong place first – So you’d just need to make sure you had a person or a good sign letting people know that the wedding is at the OTHER venue.
