So many thoughts went through my mind at once: I don't believe it, A fool and their money. . . , and then What if someone else's wedding is scheduled the day before the rich bride's? Now the first bride's wedding is guaranteed to be ruined. It doesn't seem fair.
I'm sympathetic to how stressful it must be to plan an outdoor wedding, then worry until the last minute about the weather. But I prefer to leave some things, like the seasons, to a Higher Power not a higher paycheck.
I planned my own wedding for August, a month famous for its low precipitation. (My birthday is also in that month and I never remembered it being anything but sunny). Even so, I quickly dismissed the idea of exchanging vows outdoors in a scenic park, knowing that I'd fret about the weather anyway. Since the ceremony was set indoors, I was confident it would be a beautiful day.
Instead, I awoke to gray skies. It misted then drizzled off and on all day. Concerned guests assured me it was good luck for it to rain on my wedding day. I'd never heard that along with the "Something borrowed, something blue" tradition, but I decided to believe them. You know what? The overcast skies didn't bother me at all. Because inside that chapel, as I walked toward my smiling fiance, it was a perfectly beautiful day!
Did something go wrong on your wedding day? Doesn't it always? :)
