Hi all- 22 days to go! I’m constantly checking the weather because for a week now it’s been saying it will storm on my wedding day!!! 😰😱😰😱
I know 3 weeks out is a bit far to actually trust this but y’all.... ITS FREAKING ME OUT!!!
We ALWAYS wanted an outside wedding, and even have a back up outdoor venue if our first choice is flooded due to rain. Neither location has an indoor option (state park and moms farm) so our back up in the event of rain is the upstairs of the church our reception is in. I really don’t want to use this as I’m a bitttt superstitious because my parents got married in the same church and now are divorced unfortunately.
When did your your brides start freaking out over the weather? when should I officially freak out???
What I wanna know is how the heck you checked that! Lol! Weather always changes in Colorado so I’m not sure it would help worrying about it until the week of. Unnecessary stress! Enjoy your next couple of weeks!

This ! It was supposed to rain all day for our engagement pics. We canceled & then our photographer called us the morning of bc the forecast completely changed the day of. We took pics outside & it didn’t even rain until later that night.
My fiancé works for the State of Michigan. His boss told him during plow season - “any kind of storm predicted over a week is more than likely false. Any type of weather over 3 days - is a guess.” Apparently he had to go to school for some kind of meteorology before becoming a manager for what he does lol
Don’t fret just yet!
Omg girl I feel you! Mine's 9/2/18 and I've been checking the weather as much as possible. My venue has an ok option for if it storms, but the reason we went with this venue is because of the grounds! I hope it doesn't storm (although they say a bit of rain is luck). If it does, lets hope it's after everyone is inside eating
I live in Florida and currently it is the season where it rains just about every afternoon so you never really know if it will rain and/or how long the rain will last. We got married the end of May and didn't make the decision on to go through with the outdoor ceremony or move it inside until 2pm and it was a 4:30pm ceremony. Weather is so unpredictable and it's tough when the map shows it will rain in your area in two hours but then it never rains. I'm very glad my husband made the call to keep the ceremony outside as I would have been very upset if we didn't take the risk.
Don't trust the weather till the week of. Keep checking daily through the week but try not to sweat it right now. Whether forecasters get paid to be wrong 50% of the time. Also if you can try getting the app accuweather it is one of the most accurate ones I've found to date.
We are date twins! Probably depends on where you are but I'd say just try to not think about it. It's not like you can do anything either way. Just have a backup plan!
Right now the forecast for me looks great but I don't trust it. LOL. My ceremony site is under a huge oak tree so obviously I'm hoping it doesn't rain. But if it does, we do have a less thrilling but also beautiful plan b.
Mine kept saying it would rain even a day before the wedding. I figured if it did oh well, rain is good luck and prosperity 🤷♀️ All I did was buy a nice sweater in case I got cold because my dress was backless. Fortunately for me it was actually bright and sunny during photo time and by the time it actually rained (around 2am) the wedding was over lol
Hey Carol, i got married 8.18.18 and it kept saying it was going to rain.. and unfortunately it did. It poured pretty much the entire time and my guests got wet (we still had a huge turn out) but my ball gown dress got soaking wet and I had to change because it was so heavy it kept pulling down in the front. Even though it poured and everyone got wet during the ceremony, it was still beautiful and we still had a great time. So if it does rain, that’s okay. People probably won’t stay as long, but it will still be a wonderful day for you.
We live in New England where the weather can change literally hour to hour. I am NOT looking at the forecast at all, our first look and pictures are all outside (we do have a back up but I REALLY want the outdoor shots) and I feel like I know myself and I will stress way too much if I look. Good luck!!!
Oh god, I'm not ready for the weather! Our ceremony is outside as well and I've always pictured it outside and only outside. I keep saying Mother Nature I only need like 2 hours of good weather, don't fail me!!
We have an indoor backup location near the reception area but I really don't like it and hope we don't have to go that route.
I live in Alabama and the weather is so unpredictable here I wouldn't stress too much over it. Maybe look the week prior but as many others have said the weather changes hour by hour. Best wishes!

Tomorrow we will be a week away from getting married. We live and are getting married in Tampa, FL. We check the weather here and there but haven't started to freak out (we are in the heart of hurricane season). We plan to take pretty much all of our wedding photos outside since we are getting married at the courthouse. As of right now there is a 60% chance to PM Thunderstorms so hopefully we'll be done with photos by then. If not then I guess we'll be singing in the rain.
