I know they say rain is good luck on your wedding day but Im kind of sad. The farmers almanac is predicting rain for my wedding. It wouldnt matter so much if it happened after all the pictures and guest arrived but I’m a little disappointed. They say the almanac is 80% accurate so… Have any brides use the farmers almanac for their wedding predictions?

The entire week before my wedding in April, the forcast showed rain. Even the day before, they were calling for rain. Guess what? No rain on my wedding!! 🙂 (We had an indoor wedding, but I wanted nice outside pics, so no rain) Try not to worry and remember there is nothing you can do about that, so focus your energy and thoughts on everything else and just hope for the best. 🙂

The farmers almanac was sort of right on my actual wedding day. I think it predicted low 80’s and sunny/pleasant, in reality it was high 80’s and extremely humid. The days around my wedding were kind of wrong, it was supposed to wait until mid-week after teh wedding to get rainy which I was hoping for since everyone was traveling from Out of Town and of course there was a torrential thunderstorm the day after. The forecast from every source other than the almanac was calling for rain on my wedding day, even the actual day and it didn’t rain.

We checked it before picking our date (this Saturday!) and it said it was supposed to be nice…so far (knock on wood) it looks pretty correct for us.

Don’t stress about it. It was WAY wrong for our wedding.

Don’t stress about this. There is nothing you can do to change the weather so don’t spend your time worrying about. If it rains… grab an umbrella, throw on some wellies, and get cute rain pics.

Yeah I wouldn’t trust that.
I just checked it for us and it says in the extended forecast that THIS week it’s suppose to be “rain then sunny; cool” – but it hasn’t rained AT ALL this week and it’s not suppose to rain for the next few days according to the National Weather Service, plus it’s like 92 degrees.
Just keep stalking extended forecasts from Accuweather & Weather.com – not that you can do much to change it, but at least you can mentally prepare.

My wedding is going to be in April so I’m pretty much operating under the assumption that it’ll be raining. Don’t need no almanac to predict that... 😀

So as a statistics major… it is all poop…. Don’t fret about it. September in New Jersy there is a chance of rain but don’t assume it will happen just because of the Farmers Almanac.
Here is an article looking at the accuracy of Almanac predictions to what has actually happened in the last few years…
It claims about 13% accuracy. Even in California! And I used to live in So Cal and even I could predict the weather there! Don’t fret about it.
Here is another article:
It says about the same thing. Start checking with the weather channel as your day is creeping up and realize that no matter what happens it will beautiful!!!

It was totally wrong for ours, predicted rain the day before but then sunny and beautiful for the day of the wedding…And it poured. All. DAY. Don’t listen to the farmer’s almanac or the weather channel, predicting the weather is total BS and a shot in the dark, at best!
