    We planned to have pre-dinner drinks in the botanic gardens from 4-6pm in the middle of winter in Sydney. Rain is likely and then i also found out they close the gates at 5pm AFTER the invites have gone out :-Z

    Im actually really hoping it rains so I can just put a sign out directing guests to a nearby bar. Otherwise I have to arrive at the gardens at 4 and try have everyone leave by 5 with dinner not starting til 6pm & it gets dark early now too ! Argh !! Let it rain I say 🙂

    I chose our venue because it has a beautiful inside area for when (if) it rains. It’s a glass atrium, of sorts, with a view of the lake. Even in pouring rain it would make for a fun sight!

    @Snoopadoop:  We’re also having an outdoor wedding: in the court of a medieval castle. I’m from the South of Switzerland, the weather is generally sunny and hot here in the summer, but summer rain and thunderstorms might occur. i’m praying it won’t happen on my big day…However, our back up plan is a big tent and some gazebos here and there…it won’t be the same as with sunny weather, but what can you do? I hope the sun will sun for both of us on our big day!!!Wink

    Our only outdoor portion is pictures, so if we can’t have those, then we will figure out something else.  But I do feel bad for brides who’s wedding is outside, even with a tent, when it’s raining.

    My cousin’s wedding was supposed to be outside on a patio in a pool area of a resort.  Minutes (nay, seconds) after they said their vows, the skies opened up.  Everyone ran to the shelter of the tiki bar, and then to the overhang where the staff had quickly moved the cocktail hour tables.  Probably the best transition I have ever seen.  There had been a room reserved for them in case of rain anyway, so everything was just inside – dinner and dancing.
