It was raining on our wedding day. Out of all the weekends in August, Mr. Rain decided to pour during the weekend on our wedding. The rain cancelled our plans to have the wedding ceremony in the garden but it’s not powerful enough to ruin our day.
So, if you’re worried about the rains on your wedding day, keep these 3 things in mind:
1. Always consider the possibility of raining.
In any event, it pays to have a Plan B and even a Plan C. This is especially true for outdoor weddings in a tropical country during the rainy season. If you’re having your wedding outdoors, have tents ready just in case. Or better yet, find a place that offers indoors and outdoors event facilities. we Our Plan B was to rent tents so we can still have an outdoor ceremony. But with the strong winds, we still had to resort to Plan C- forget the view and have the wedding inside the function hall.
2. The attendance of your guests does not depend on the weather.
The people who has decided to attend your wedding will surely be there- come hell or high water. The people who don’t have plans of going will not really be there even with the sun shining. This has been so true in regards to our wedding. Guests who have been excited for us from the very start really did attend even with the heavy rains and traffic. Guests who seemed tentative and undecided from the very start didn’t show up- which isn’t surprising anymore.
3. Be happy no matter what.
It’s your wedding, a once-in-a-lifetime event, so choose to be happy. Don’t let anything rob you of your day. We cannot control the weather but we can control our emotions. When the rains didn’t stop on the eve of our wedding, I resolved that I’ll be joyful whatever comes. True enough, our day is one of the most happiest weddings our guests have attended. (This is based on their feedback.) I can personally say too that even though it was raining, it didn’t bother me anymore.
A friend told me that a rainy wedding is a sign of blessing. As long as there’s no typhoon, thunderstorm and tsunami, I’d like to believe my friend.
