I say, look at it this way — if it rains, you can get some awesome photos. The light diffuses really nicely through the rain.

 There’s nothing you can do about the rain, honestly.

 We’ve decided to get a nice umbrella (in white/ivory — NOT BLACK) to be safe, but if it rains, it rains.

 Good luck!

(and don’t forget about the Twin Cities meetup coming up!)

  • Wedding: February 2008

I planned an early June wedding to avoid miserable July/August heat.  Instead of a balmy 70-degree day, it was 96.  I freaked out when I saw the forecast, as I couldn’t think of worse weather.  http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/holy-heat-wave

Eventually I had to come to terms with my total lack of control over the weather, despite fervert belief that if I just willed it, the heat would go away 🙂

all you can do is have a good back up (such as giant, cute umbrellas – we had fans which were a big hit with the hot crowd).  There was a blogger on here who got married on a day that rained so hard her venue had its power totally knocked out most of the day leading up to the wedding – while it wasn’t what she envisioned, I think it was a more fabulous, memorable day than she could have hoped for. 

also, a forecast 11 days out is pretty much guess work, so i wouldn’t worry about it too much 🙂 

oh and I had the most amazing day on our wedding day – it wasn’t 100% to plan, but i doubt they ever are!!!
