The perfect day …. come rain or shine?
Right, I think it’s about time we at Save the Date Magazine started a little debate ….
Whilst sat working in my conservatory with the doors open and the sun shining, all I can think about is how perfect today would be for a wedding. Blue skies, a light breeze, birdsong and glorious sunshine. What more could you ask? Perfect, right?
I have met so many brides (myself being one of them) who agonise and agonise over what the weather is going to be like on their big day. What if it rains? Gale force winds? Miserable cloud? You name it – us brides worry about it. And, as my mum would say on a regular basis on the lead up to my big day – “Lydia, the weather is one of those things you can’t book and pay for. What will be will be.” Thankfully for me, the 28th May 2010 was a beautiful, sunny day and I couldn’t have been happier. However, the 29th May was the wettest day of the year and literally poured and poured from start to finish.
So, the question is – Does the state of the weather really matter? In all honesty, I think by the time your big day comes, you are so wrapped up in everything else that suddenly, the weather (which you’ve been obsessing about for the past week) isn’t really all that important. Or, am I just saying that because I managed to get a nice day? Would I have had that attitude had I been the bride on the 29th May being rained on?
The perfect day, come rain or shine?
I want to know what you think! Are you planning your big day and desperate for sunshine? Or, are you happy in your wellies splashing in the puddles? Whether you’re a bride to be or a wedding supplier, post a comment and let us know your thoughts!
And on that note, I am going to get myself a Calippo out of the freezer 😉
