Weather Woes

Hive, I’ve been a little absent around here lately. With only 10 days to the wedding, my hectic work schedule, and fall semester just beginning, I feel completely overwhelmed. But I haven’t forgotten about you, and I hope you haven’t forgotten about me!

In fact, I went ahead and hammered out a few posts during my accounting class today. I gotta admit that I prefer blogging about wedding stuff to learning the difference between accounts payable and accounts receivable.


With the wedding date looming ever closer, it’s getting harder and harder not to think about the weather. Back in January, when we had juuuust started planning this thing, I made a solemn vow to myself that I would NOT think about the weather, and that I would just take everything in stride.

I know that there’s something to be said for romantic, misty, dewy wedding pictures, but I kind of have my heart set on a breezy, sunshiny wedding day. I’ll have to wait until tomorrow for my wedding day to actually make it into the 10-day forecast, but as of right now, it’s not looking too good.

The silly weather people are predicting thunderstorms for the three days preceding MY WEDDING DAY. What’s up with that? Did they not get the memo??? I’m kind of hoping that the sky gets it all out of its system on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, leaving me with the picture-perfect, partly cloudy Saturday that I so desperately want.

I know there’s nothing I can do about the weather, and our venue has a “Plan B” in case it rains, but I reeeeeally want some sunshine. The “Plan B” is not nearly as gorgeous as the outdoor option, and the venue charges an extra $1,000 for using it.

This is where you come in, hive. I need you all to pray, do anti-rain interpretive dances, send sunshine vibes, or WHATEVER you have to do.

How did the weather turn out on your wedding day? Rainy-day brides, do you have any words of consolation in case my wedding ends up being soggier than planned?

    Good luck 🙂 I’m sure rain or no rain it’ll be perfect
    A wonderful day for you both, family and friends.
    I actually hoped for a few sprinkles, but not until after I arrived at our venue. ;).
