How will you react if it rains on your wedding day?

Sarah, on April 10, 2019 at 15:56 Posted in Plan a wedding
I鈥檓 just curious if anyone else would love it to rain on their big day?I have always heard people freaking out if it rains on their wedding day that it鈥檚 bad luck 馃 personally I would love it!To me it feels like all of the people I have lost would be crying tears of happiness upon us and I don鈥檛 mind puddle jumping for a few photos in my $1800+ dress lol.I will have an umbrella or two and possibly some cute as heck rain boots but I鈥檓 not going to the extreme of renting a tent or having a back up ceremony spot.The wedding is in August so chances are low of any rain 鈽旓笍 how are you preparing for weather?

    Since both my ceremony and reception venues are indoors, it won鈥檛 bother me so much but I鈥檓 not going to lie, it would be an annoyance lol

    Exactly! If you can't make the best of rain how will you make the best of really tough times in the future!

    Honestly I'm kind of hoping for overcast on our wedding day! SO much better for photos and wont be blinded by the sun!

    My wedding is in a week or so, looks like it's a mix of a day. Doesn't matter to me. Rain is my favorite, I absolutely love it!

    It did rain on my wedding day! It was sunny in the morning. We had the venue set up the chairs outside. By two o鈥檆lock, a big rain cloud blew over our venue. There was a giant crack of thunder right before the ceremony started and it started to rain just before I walked down. We said our vows in the rain. The wind blew our marriage licence off the table (luckily into the crowd!) and I saw guests leaving their seats and huddling under the roof to the side of the ceremony. I then suggested we move inside. We finished the ceremony in front of the buffet tables! The best man and a friend brought in the arch (as the pastor was talking!) and placed it behind us. A few people pulled up chairs but most stood. By the time the ceremony was over, it was sunny again! It then started raining during photos and stopped as soon as we got back to the venue! And then it was sunny for the rest of the evening! It was definitely an entertaining wedding and people still talk about it nine months later!
    I had no problem with the rain! Can鈥檛 control the weather.
    The thing I got sick of though was everyone saying it鈥檚 good luck to have rain on your wedding day. I鈥檓 not superstitious so I don鈥檛 believe that we have a great marriage because it rained!

    I actually wouldn't mind that much! Rainy days are my favourite kind of weather. The only thing we'd have to change would be our photos. I'm thinking we could do them at the church, since it's pretty grand.

    Do you have time to get clear (or cute) umbrellas for the wedding party? Those would work in rain or snow, then you can get at least a few quick outdoor pics Smiley smile

    I like tempting fate and saving money so I won鈥檛 be renting any tents 馃槅 I might be nice and suggest people dress for the weather as rain or shine the wedding ceremony is outside.

    I remember my cousin crying the night before her summer wedding years ago because there was a storm and I remember everyone freaking out while I was excited for the possibility of rain 馃し鈥嶁檧锔 The weather turned out perfect and her marriage failed a few years later so I don鈥檛 think weather has any control over the outcome of the marriage.

    Rain can be considered good luck if anyone believes in that superstition. Most venues always a back up plan in case of rain.

    Alternative is putting up a tent in the case of outdoor bad weather occurring and having your guests dry.

    Bad luck??? I've heard it's good luck! Like anything that seems "bad" that happens on your wedding day and you power through it is suppose to make your relationship stronger!

    I'll deal with it! We are going to a park for photos but rain isn't the end of the world, no use stressing and being upset over something you literally cannot control. It's what you make of your day!

    I will be sad because my FH put a lot of work and such into making a bunch of lawn games for the guests to play. Also there aren't a lot of great places to get photos done inside our venue so we are relying on the weather being nice enough to get pictures around the grounds (though my photographer said in the forested area there are lots of sheltered places so it might be ok)

    Here's how I'd like to react: Roll with the punches and be confident in our 'Plan B'.


    How I'll probably react: Doubt our 'Plan B', worry about the amount of space we ACTUALLY have on the covered deck, start thinking about all of the things we won't be able to do (outdoor ceremony, fire pit).

    Smiley xd

    According to the forecast it鈥檚 going to rain and snow most days until my wedding. (15 days away) and I鈥檓 totally bummed about it. I wanted to get a lot of outdoor photos because will be in the Rocky Mountains. I really don鈥檛 want my hair and make up to get ruined after spending a fortune getting it done.haha. So I鈥檓 trying to make the best of it. I was so excited for the photos though.
