Remember, in 5, 10 and 25 years from now, the last thing on your mind will be what the weather was on your wedding day. You are committing a lifetime of memories to the love of your life. In the long run bad weather is going to be the least calamitous problem that you will face.
It may be hard to maintain or adopt an optimistic view, when faced with less than ideal weather. Here are a list of reason that will help encourage a change of mind...
Fun photos in the rain, add a unique element.
Normally when you think of pictures in the rain, frizzy hair, makeup running down your face, and basically a wet cat come to mind, however with a great team of stylist and photographer, rain is no obstacle when it comes to capturing wedding day bliss. In fact photos with umbrellas can be fun and add an element of carefree joy. There is something to be said about a couple who are still smiling and obviously joyful despite poor weather. Your union goes beyond sunshine, it stands strong in "bad weather".
An even better excuse to cuddle.
Rain and snow can be romantic. A light drizzle, flurry, or even a heavy downpour, and sleet will encourage you to cuddle up to your spouse under your umbrellas or by the window. The rain on umbrellas and the windows is the sweetest sound you'll hear, and is a sound that is associated with romance.
Your flowers could last longer.
Cooler temperature and dewey air, will keep your flowers blooming and bright. Too much heat and humidity can cause your flowers to wilt prematurely. Again there is another reason that rain creates romance. The smell of rain and fresh flowers are the stuff every Yankee Candle is made of. Pure, natural, and a gift from mother nature herself.
This is YOUR wedding story.
Someday when you are recounting your wedding day story to your friends and family, you will have a captivating story to tell. Everybody enjoys a good story, especially one where, in the face of unexpected events you were able to overcome them and have a day befit of any dream wedding.
