Rain, Rain Go Away

I have an irrational fear that it is going to rain on our wedding day. If it ends up being sunny and beautiful, I’ll be ecstatic, but until the wedding day comes, I’m certain it will be gloomy and rainy.

There is some thought behind this. Back in 2002 when I went to visit Salve for the first time, it rained. When I went back for my second time before accepting, it rained. When I went to freshman orientation, it rained. Then Mr. Starfish and I lived there for four years—some days it rained, some days it didn’t. Flash forward to 2008, when Mr. Starfish and I headed to Newport and Mr. Starfish proposed. It rained while we were there. I’ve had many rainy experiences in Newport.





I’ve decided if it has to rain on our wedding day, at least I’ll be prepared. Although I’m not a fan of rainy wedding days, I am a fan of cute umbrellas for the wedding party.



The weekend Mr. Starfish proposed, we stopped by the Salve bookstore and I picked up an oversized Salve umbrella for our wedding day, just in case. It’s somewhat similar to the umbrella the couple is using above. Then, on a recent shopping spree, I found some cute umbrellas for the bridal party.



If we’re going to be wed in the rain, at least we’ll do it in style.

Did you make any special preparations in case of rain on your wedding day?

    At least we know if it rains on your wedding day (which I hope it wont), you will have the cutest umbrella photos!

    Love the inspiration pictures! I hope it doesn’t rain on your day though.

    After seeing your post, I’ve been inspired to see if I can get little foldable umbrellas for a good price and have them silkscreened as wedding favours! Our wedding is in November next year, which means it’ll probably be raining at some point during the day.

    We got married last weekend at a vineyard where we planned (and set up) an all-outdoor event. Of course, it started pouring down rain about 10 minutes before the ceremony was to start.

    Our photog was worried about ruining my dress and I told her it already was so let’s do whatever for the sake of pictures. There was a double rainbow at one point, but it’s already becoming a blur to me so the next 2 months of waiting can’t hurry fast enough!
