    So I am getting married on 7/04/09. We are having an outside wedding ceremony @ Virginia Tech's Horticulture Gardens. I just checked the weather for that day and it says scattered thunderstorms. :cry::cry::cry:

    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, join me in praying for NO RAIN! I know that no matter what the weather does, we will still get married, but nobody wants it to rain on their wedding day. Gosh, I am so nervous now. I swear, planning a wedding will shave YEARS off of your life! LOL!

    I remember people telling me that a rainy day was supposed to be good luck. Something about fertility. ;)

    Thanks ladies! I am just praying for the best! I know the weather will be what God wants, and not me, but it doesn't hurt to ask Him huh? :)

    We were really bad though - when our families started fighting about who was paying for the flowers we told them we decided to wait a year. BUT we eloped on our original date anyway and didn't say anything for 4 months. :eek: My Mom was pissed!!! LOL

    It rained on my wedding day, but to this day, everyone remembers how beautiful it was outside and warm! It was freaking freezing and raining! Plus, we are incredibly happily married so it's good that it rained! Good luck and congratulations!

    I think she most upset because my brother (who was still living at home) was one of our witnesses. He kept his yap shut for four months. My brother is awesome!!!

    And we got married at the courthouse - across the street from where she works. :D

    Rain on wedding days is good luck and means fertiliity! If that doesn't prove it, we were pregnant 6 months and so were our friends and it POURED on their wedding day!

    However, although it rained all day the day before and the morning of our wedding, it was absolutely gorgeous when it came to the ceremony. Everything was so clean and fresh (we had an outdoor wedding as well!)

    Good luck and SMILE! No one will remember the weather if the bride is happy!

    Is there something special about 7/4 weddings in VA? A friend's daughter is getting married that day, too!

    Remember, you're in VA. The weather can't accurately be predicted more than a couple of days in advance, and won't necessarily be the same for every area.

    That was my thought, Sarah. If it's more than 12 hours away the prediction is sure to change.

    Remember it says, "scattered thundershowers". Here that can mean pouring at our house and a mile down the road, be sunny! Let's pray that the thundershowers scatter elsewhere! Don't get yourself in a frenzy! The wedding day is stressful enough without adding more to it!

    Happy Wedding Day!

    and in the summer...that seems to be a typical forecast when it is warm. I usually check for the % chance of rain before I get too nervous. Our local news weather has a way to check hourly forecast for a day for the %s.. Weather.com might too.


    Good luck and congratulations.

    It sprinkled, then it got REALLY cold, and it was May 18!!! We were getting married in our backyard. It's amazing how 80 people will fit in a house when it gets cold enough!

    The day before it's was 80 and then comes Saturday it turned into 50! I remember not being able to feel my fingers when I wrote checks to pay for photograher, etc. I should have had a heads up when I looked out the window and saw a girlfriend come in wearing a fur coat!

    You can't control the weather, stop stressing out about it. Like my friend says, it is what it is! Would it be any better saying I do in the sun as opposed to the rain?? Well yes it would be prettier and dryer, but honestly, it's all good.

    We have a saying where we live...don't like the weather? Wait 5 minutes, it will change!

    The wedding day is a special day, but the days to follow are the most important. My parents were married at 16 and 20 years old. They just celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary.

    On their first fight, my father asked my mother if she was going to run home to her mother? She told him, no...she was going to give him the satisfation. She was going to stay and make his life miserable!!! They had their moments but were awesome parents and continue to love making each other miserable to this day!!! They both have a great sense of humor and I truely think this is one of the secrets to a long and happy life together.

    Blessings to you on your special day. July 4th is a great day to get married...every year on your anniversary most people will have the day off too and there will be fireworks every year!!

    So glad to hear that. I thought of you when I was sitting in the rain at the lawnmower races. It rained all afternoon and evening here.
