OH MY GOD RAIN

Remember my mean post a while back to all of you that sent me floods and floods of emails about how I should blog about my wedding plans 24hrs a day and then I basically told you all to shut up and go to hell and that I would NEVER EVER blog about wedding plans well yeah...whatever.

When I happen to mention to those that ask that E and I are considering getting married in the park it doesn't matter who it is nor how cool they are but everyone says the same damn thing....WHAT IF IT RAINS????!!!!

OH MY GOD! RAIN! RAIN IS SO SCARY! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!
IT'S RAINING! OH MY GOD! MUD! AND RAIN! AND WET GRASS!
WHAT THEN????? OH MY GOD!!!! RAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's not like we are planning a four hour affair here complete with hymnals and a lighting of the unity candle. We are talking a nice modest 20 minutes at most. Have you ever stood in the rain with an umbrella for twenty minutes? Were you ok?

Now that I think about it perhaps we should plan the whole thing around rain. Something involving me in a bikini coming down the aisle which is actually in the form of a bright yellow Slip N' Slide.

And it's not just weddings -- anytime I am doing anything, some arse will say "god - I hope it doesn't rain."

Oh yeah. Cause the rain will KILL US.
THE RAIN WILL MAIM our guests.

wtf!

taking your vows, in the park in the pouring rain could be gorgeous.

we went to a wedding this year that was supposed to be in a park but it RAINED- POURED! GALLONS AND GALLONS OF WATER- and the hosts, in the last, last minute of the day, stuffed everyone into their house and it was PERFECT. different from what they expected, but so is married life, so it was a good exercise in flexibility. have a great honeymoon!

the bikini thing sounds good. I would pay money to see that.

if all of the umbrellas are one or two matching colors, it could make for some super photos... especially if they're all bright yellow to match the slip n slide.

I've been to too many rainy outdoor weddings.

My observations for what they are worth:

1. Women get upset about their hair. You would think modern-alterna chicks are immune to hair meltdowns. Nope.

2. People freak about their cameras.

3. fun when it's warm rain on a nice day. not so fun when the rain is cold, or the day is steamy and humid.

My humble suggestions:

1. Choose a site that won't turn into mud.

2. If it's not expected, provide umbrellas, or even a tent.

3. Wear a short wedding dress that won't get all covered with schmutz.

4. Even if you don't cover your guests, cover your musicians. Some refuse to play their instruments electronic or otherwise in the rain.

i got married outside on the water in an appallingly quick (to many relatives) ceremony. it rained all frigging day and it rocked anyway. there were gnats, i won't lie, but who fucking cares? people get mental over weddings.

Please, do the slip n'slide thing.

Bonus - you can hand out condoms as wedding favors, it could be part of the "theme" - "Put your rubbers on!"
Upside of a slip-n-slide wedding? News coverage, 10 minutes of fame.
Downside? slip-n-slide not wet enough, dreadful skin abrasions.

Doitdoitdoit!!!! That would be so nice, an outdoor park wedding. Instead of thinking about what if it rains, think about what if it DOESN'T rain.

I, too, got married outside on a dock overlooking a lake - late September, gorgeous fall colours. The whole week leading up to the wedding it poured and was freezing - 10 degrees celcius. Saturday came and out of nowhere the sun came out & it was 75F degrees. But that aside, we were prepared with a tent and umbrellas to escort the guests from the dock back inside to the reception, just in case. (Note.. not only did we plan the ceremony outside, we also took our guests on a steamship ride around the lakes... Come to think of it, thank god it didn't rain!) Risky but so worth it.

I also agree with some of the very valid points Raul made regarding camera equipment and instruments.

Regardless, even if it does rain it will be beautiful! It's your wedding day, after all!!

Curious to know what time of year you're thinking of?

i got the same thing since we were in Kauai where it just starts raining at any moment.

good god. if i was so worried about it raining then i would have gotten married inside somewhere. and missed out on the opportunity to get married surrounded by a beautiful ocean, sunset, trees, kids playing in the surf, sand in my toes. yea id give that up for some chance of rain....

I got married on a beach, in Australia. They had predicted rain, but it didn't rain. YAY! But it did started raining the next day, for 4 days straight. But rain could never screw up a honeymoon on the beach. There are better things to do. ;)

If it had rained, I don't think i would have cared. It was a barefoot beach wedding. Close friends, intimate wedding. Perfect.

I came to this blog because I was determined to find out WHO LOVES RAIN. I love rain. :)


Ps. I can't find where it says you love rain, but GOOGLE told me someone said so, and GOOGLE never lies. :(

Hi, I was searching blogs, and came onto yours fantastic blog.

I have a niche site. It pretty much covers how make money with niche marketing.

Keep it up. I'll check back later im sure.

Not what I was searching for, but none the less and interesting blog here. Thanks for putting it up. I've enjoyed reading alot of the text here. I got you bookmarked for the future, I'll be back.

My site is a bit different, some think it's odd. I guess it's a matter how you look at it. I have a penis enhancement pill related site. Most of the articles are on penis enhancement pill.

I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I'm going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

It'll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about surgical penis enlargement) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about surgical penis enlargement related articles and subjects.

Erection begins with sensory or mental stimulation, or both. Impulses from the brain and local nerves cause the muscles of the corpora cavernosa to relax, allowing blood to flow in and fill the spaces. The blood creates pressure in the corpora cavernosa, making the penis to expand. The tunica albuginea helps trap the blood in the corpora cavernosa, which further helps to sustain erection. http://www.viagrathunder.com
