So here we are …Tie The Knot Tuesday. More wedding goodness. . . just a day early!
With the rain coming down here and a rainy weekend forecast seems like a good time to talk about the weather!
One can certainly go to great lengths to plan the most perfect wedding, down to every last little detail, but there’s still always going to be that one pesky little annoying thing: the weather. At times it can be unpredictable, harsh and even dangerous, which can be worrisome to some couples who just want their day to go off without a hitch. Never fear, though…there is something you can do!
Perhaps you’ve heard the saying: “a pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity, but an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” The weather can be difficult, to say the least. The rain, wind, or snow can be a total game-changer, but that doesn’t mean it has to ruin your big day. Everything will still happen, but it will just look a little different than you had imagined.
Say you planned your wedding for typically one of the driest months of the year because you want to bask in the beautiful sunrays in your gorgeous gown. Then, the morning of the big day it looks like a monsoon outside. You can do one of two things:
A) You can let it ruin your day. You can be grumpy, make comments on how it’s ruining everything and stress out completely. It’s not going to change anything, though. Scratch that. It will make everyone else around you grumpy and stressed.
B) You can choose to embrace the rain.
Maybe that means your wedding party pictures will have fun umbrellas instead of cute sunglasses. Maybe that means you decide to put your hair up instead because you know the rain will only make you look like Monica in Barbados (that’s a Friends reference for those of you who have lived such a sad life thus far to have never watched it). Maybe that simply means letting go of any expectations you had and just go with it!
Remember, there’s one thing the weather can’t change: your love for one another. Sounds cheesy, but it’s true. So go ahead…Embrace the rain (or snow, or whatever)!
