I’m 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’s bad luck 🤔 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’t 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’m 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 ☔️ how are you preparing for weather?
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’clock, 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’t control the weather. The thing I got sick of though was everyone saying it’s good luck to have rain on your wedding day. I’m not superstitious so I don’t 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.

Great idea! I will now be on the hunt to find some. Thank you!

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 🤷♀️ The weather turned out perfect and her marriage failed a few years later so I don’t think weather has any control over the outcome of the marriage.
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)
Also an August bride here and I’m a little scared of rain, but if it happens, it happens. There’s nothing I can do about it and it will make for some interesting pictures lol.
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).
According to the forecast it’s going to rain and snow most days until my wedding. (15 days away) and I’m totally bummed about it. I wanted to get a lot of outdoor photos because will be in the Rocky Mountains. I really don’t want my hair and make up to get ruined after spending a fortune getting it done.haha. So I’m trying to make the best of it. I was so excited for the photos though.
