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?
