No Rain

"All I can say is that my life is pretty plain,
I like watchin’ the puddles gather rain
And all I can do
Is just pour some tea for two
And speak my point of view,
But it’s not sane… it’s not S-A-A-A-A-N-E-E-E"

As I sit here listening to Blind Melon’s No Rain (who can forget that iconic bumblebee?), I find it fitting to write about a huge fear of mine…

I originally envisioned our ceremony indoors, most likely in the church that my family has been apart of since we moved to Texas back in ’95. No worries for the weather minus the walk into the church. No stalker in the weeks leading up to the wedding. No plan B needed.

Fast forward to our venue search and me falling in love with the Tribute and their beautiful outdoor gazebo. I couldn’t be more excited about getting married outdoors, but now I do have to be a stalker leading up to the wedding. Our photographer said that she has never had rain at a wedding in the month of April, so we’re knocking on wood that her streak continues for our wedding.

We do have a Plan B that I’m not overly excited about, but will not stress about using it if we need to. Our plan B is to hold the ceremony in the same room as the reception, using a partition/curtain to hide the tables. Plan B means more work for our planner and the team at the venue to turn the room in a shorter amount of time.

Either way, I know that the day with be special and memorable, rain or shine! :)

Are you planning an outdoor wedding? If so are you worried about the weather? Do you have a Plan B?

Our wedding is in November and we are in Michigan, so it could be nice out but it could also be snowing...which is something I don't want to risk. I am having both ceremony and reception indoors, but still have to work it out with the venue exactly how we are going to do it.

Yeah I wouldn't risk the snow up north ;)

We got lucky that it's normally really nice down here in Texas, just HOT!
