Congrats to you too in that case

I'm hoping that the clouds are being emptied now in preparation for glorious sunshine the end of next week...

Pigs might fly.

You never know what might happen.

When we got married on May 5th in Yorkshire it had been snowing the week before. I even went out with my mother a few days before the wedding to try yo find some thermal underwear for her that wouldn't be visible through her dress.

The day before the wedding itself was quite nice and on the actual day itself it was beautiful blue sky and sunshine and 26 degrees. Who'dhave thought it in Yorkshire in May. Lots of the guests were complaining that they were too hot and the suit jackets were ditched at the earliest opportunity.

Mind you it was in 1990 and global warming and chemtrails probably affect the weather patterns much more these days. ( if you believe in all that stuff)

Re: Weather!

I got married in the Lake District in February. I had no illusions about the likely weather conditions. It snowed.

That's what you call a white wedding, literally!

Re: Weather!

We have this saying in French "mariage pluvieux, mariage heureux", literally 'rainy wedding, happy marriage'. Hope we won't have to test it!

An interesting phonetic distortion of the original saying, which, I believe, is "mariage plus vieux, mariage heureux". So to be on the safe side, you should marry an old man on a rainy day.

Re: Weather!

<3 Good luck to you guys! I hope you get lovely weather for your wedding days!! (or rainy if you want to go with the old French saying!

I got married in Ibiza, in my bare feet, which had been my childhood dream! Although technically I had 2 wedding days, as the paperwork marriage had to be done in the UK. The UK one was a sunny day too. It was September.

Re: Weather!

Get a large bottle of Pimm's out, a bowl of strawberries and cream, a straw hat and a pair of sunglasses, all on the day: sunshine cannot fail to show up!

Swedes have a similar saying...I can remember hearing the rain just after our vows while there was a cello/piano duo playing. My OHs grandmother said the rain would bring prosperity and longevity. Guess one could tack some other wished-for things on the list and hope for rain My hair looks like a pancake in the photos

Hope it is a fantabulous day
