    OK 11 days till my wedding at Dreams and I'm in quite a panic about weather. I looked at the ten day forecast and scattered thunderstorms every day.

    Has anyone had to deal with rain at their wedding?

    Marianna said when it does rain it is just for a little bit and if so that is fine but we have 60 people coming down and if it rains the whole time I'm going to feel so guilty. They are here for sun! I live in London and it hasn't stopped raining all summer. We are going nuts.

    Your honest opinion so I can prepare myself would be greatly appreciated,

      Awww dont worry too much. So many times when it rains its just for a second. And you can never trust the long range forecast! They are constantly wrong! Im sure everything will be just perfect for your big day!

        I think the rain is usually just a brief shower in that area. Do that have a backup spot for your wedding if it does rain? I've heard some hotels have a patio area with curtains for nice outdoor parties in the rain.

        I've seen some pictures from rainy weddings. Everyone had a black umbrella. They were amazing pictures. Sometimes the rain is really nice too because it just sprinkles a bit & the weather is much cooler.

          You know if it rains during the event we can deal. I think my bigger panic is cloudy/rainy weather the whole time. Guests are coming there for 4 days and want sun. I hope you are right about it just being passing rain.

            It will be fine. The rain comes in a quick, hard storm that only lasts about 15 minutes. It's not gray and overcast all day like London (and Seattle).

              Well in all honesty I wouldn't worry about it too much. Yes it would suck if it rained the whole time, but you have no control of the weather. But I bet it won't be as bad as the forecast is saying.

                You can not control the weather. Remember the Serenity Prayer
                God grant me the serenity
                to accept the things I cannot change;
                courage to change the things I can;
                and wisdom to know the difference.

                Living one day at a time;
                Enjoying one moment at a time;
                Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
                Taking, as He did, this sinful world
                as it is, not as I would have it;
                Trusting that He will make all things right
                if I surrender to His Will;
                That I may be reasonably happy in this life
                and supremely happy with Him
                Forever in the next.

                The main thing you should focus on is tha tyou are marrying the man of your dreams.

                  From what I hear, it only rains in Cabo a few days a YEAR and that happens in late August/September. So, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

                  I was in Cabo the first few days of July and according to my wedding planner, it was "raining" one day when we were out. It wasn't raining. It was a 3 minutes sprinkle - to me, that's not rain. Don't worry, there will be sun for your guests.

                    We just got back last week, and the forecast before I left showed rain and/or clouds everyday. I think it rained once, and was never cloudy!!!! Their forecasters are just like ours~ more wrong than right! Our guests had a wonderful time and got all the sun they wanted!
                    Good luck!

                      omg... you freaked me out....hopefully it's like Cancun weather where it only rains once. OK I'll believe the rest of you....

                      I don't want the rain, but he it might cool it down....
                      Crossing my fingers it doesn't rain
