Oh no, that’s awful! Do you have a contingency plan in place for bad weather? If not, now’s the time to get on the phone with your venue and arrange something! Hopefully the weather will change/hold out for you.

I remember a few years ago I was in my friend’s outdoor wedding in South Carolina in August. It was gorgeous the days leading up to and the morning of, and then just as we all walked down the aisle thunder clouds started to build. Throughout the ceremony people kept glancing around hoping the preacher would hurry up before the rain began. We got everyone, guests included, under the awning just as the storm broke and torrential downpour began. Whew! And of course it only lasted 20 minutes.

@MeganTacky2247:  It’s good to have an optomistic attitude about it! I’ve seen some pics from rainy wedding days where the brides/bridal party had fun with it and they turned out super cute. And cute rainboots are always a win πŸ™‚

Hopefully it won’t rain so you can get the pics you prefer! I’ve got an indoor ceremony/reception, but our bridal party pics are supposed to take place at these old castle ruins so I’ll be crossing my fingers for good weather, too.

Mine is May 6th, and I’m totally bummed. We have an area for indoor & outdoor wedding, and I’m kind of indifferent to whether or not it’s outside, but I really wanted outdoor games during cocktail hour!!

It’s still early, forecasts can change…

Oh dear… we’re going to an outdoor wedding on May 5th in southern MD. I just checked the forecast for the city it’s in and it says “showers and thunderstorms.” Yikes. And her wedding is starting at peak thunderstorm time – 3 pm. I really wonder what her backup plan is. It wasn’t on the invites or website and I’m under the impression that it was outdoors because it was the only way to accommodate the 300+ people she invited. = I guess we’ll call the groom in a few days.

@MeganTacky2247:  The weather changed SO much before my wedding.  A week before it looked great.  Then as each day went by the forecast got worse.  I went out and bought umbrellas for all the Bridesmaid or Best Man because while we were getting married in a church, there was a long walkway without any covering, so I knew we’d be drenched if it was raining.

Then two days before the wedding it was showing ‘potential heavy flooding and freezing.’  Seriously??!!  When the wedding day actually came, it was in the 60s and sunny.  It couldn’t have been better weather.

The forecast can definitely change, and weathermen can certainly be wrong.  I work at a TV station…they’re wrong a lot.  πŸ™‚ 

Try not to stress too much at least until it gets closer.  I was freaking out.  It was one of the only times I was stressed throughout wedding planning.  No matter what your wedding will still be amazing and beautiful!!  πŸ™‚
