I check weather.com religiously, but not so much for our wedding day as I do just to see what my week in traffic will be like due to the weather. Today, with the fear that Hurricane Ike will be hitting the Texas Gulf Coast, I have been checking the weather a little more often to stay up to date.

Texas weather can be pretty unpredictable at any time of the year, but the end of September is always a toss up. You could be in 100 degree heat, a nice 85 degree fall day, or, on the rare occasion, freezing your butt off! I’m hoping for the middle of these, or somewhere close. Right now, the weather is really unpredictable as the hurricane season edges towards my home state.
Luckily, our wedding is still sixteen days out and all of our wedding is indoors, so rain won’t affect it too much … except the outside photos before the ceremony that I’m coveting!
I just wanted to write this post to gather a little support for my fellow Texans (and really, anyone that is being affected by this weather) and, also, to the brides in these areas. While I know that it’s not the most important thing – getting out of there safe is – you can’t help but have a special place in your heart for the girls who have planned for so long and so hard to have this unexpected weather arrive so quickly without much warning.
How has the weather affected your wedding – do you all have any good advice/positive words?
