Rain, rain, go away and don't come near my wedding day!

Brent has been watching the 30-day and recently the 15-day weather forecast to make sure everything is all clear for our wedding. Before we picked our wedding date, he even checked the farmer's almanac, which indicated that it hadn't rained on that day in Los Angeles for more than 25 years!

I hadn't been keeping tabs on the weather, but I think today's storm inspired me to look up the 15-day forecast on AccuWeather.com this morning. Bad, bad idea. According to the site, it's supposed to rain...on our wedding date. We have an outdoor wedding planned, with an indoor facility at our venue as our back-up plan.

Brent, who knew about the potential rain before I found out this morning, has been great. He didn't want to say anything until things looked more concrete. He even looked into renting a tent to cover the ceremony and called our venue to find out their tent policy.

Now I know that regardless of weather, we're going to have a fabulous, beautiful, memorable day. Indoor or out - it'll be great! Having said that, I'm still going to be doing the anti-rain dance for the next 11 days. I really hope it's clear enough to have the outdoor wedding I've been envisioning over the past year.

Next on the wedding to-do list:
Marriage license tomorrow morning!
Final meeting with our photographer!

  1. You know what they say about rain on your wedding day, right? Not that it should give you any comfort, but we were worried about rain in June. You just never know. And it's totally out of your control, so try not to sweat it. People are flexible. Tents are available. You'll be fine!

  2. I saw the Home Depot chick the other day and thought of you! :)

  3. Although...rain on a wedding day is supposed to be good luck. So, while I am wishing for a rainless day for you both, I will see a silver lining should it indeed be wet.

  4. I'll be doing the rain dance for you too!

  5. Yay...an excuse to dance! Who needs an excuse though, really?

    It rained at our reception...near the end. It was nice rain though and it was a good excuse to leave and start our honeymoon an hour earlier than planned. :)

    In 2004 it rained cats and dogs up until the Friday afternoon before our wedding. It was hot on that Saturday. It's crazy but don't sweat it. You'll have a beautiful day for your wedding!!!

  7. I hope you have a beautiful day, but if it does rain, I'm sure it will be beautiful indoors anyway. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

  8. My weather sources predict good things for you!
