Like many future brides out there, I have long dreamed of having a beautiful outdoor wedding. Unfortunately, science has not yet progressed to the point that individuals can simply order up a sunny day using a handy toll free number. I’m sure many a bride and groom have been surprised by an unexpected shower as they said their “I do’s.” One would hope that fewer newly married couples have had their cake destroyed by a guest so eager to get out of the rain that he dives into it, a la Guns ‘n Roses’ November Rain video.
Reader Deena recently pointed me to a new feature on Weather.com that lets eager, soon-to-be married ladies and gents track their wedding weather with a personalized wedding weather page. Of course, they say that those who predict the weather professionally are correct about 50% of the time, so one does wonder how accurate such a feature would be – particularly those getting married in locales where unpredictable weather is the norm.
For those still willing to risk it, there are plenty of ‘How to’ tomes to help you out, like The Everything Outdoor Wedding Book.
