rain on your wedding day . . .

So, I have heard it said, that rain on your wedding day is good luck.  not many brides buy it.  Rain just causes trouble – mud, dirty dress, flat hair, etc – TROUBLE.

In my “little” bit of research, though, I did discover that there are still many people whom do believe that rain is infact good luck!  ( Just as long as it is gone by the ceremony.)   Rain, for centuries, has been a symbol of fertility to agricultural societies, because rain restored and maintained the wellness of crops. Crops were peoples main source of stability and income, so it was thought to guarantee a long happy marriage!

So, congratulations to Rachel and Andy on your beautiful wedding day – a day filled with lots of rain (but none during the ceremony), lots of friends, great food, and of course, love!  May your marriage be blessed and  . . . because of the rain . . .fertile.  🙂 


  1. Yes it can be a strange thing. Some of the best wedding photographs end up being taken on rainy wedding days! I’m glad it stayed dry for the ecermony, though. Outdoor ceremonies arent as common in Scotland due to our weather but they are great when they come along.

    I have to agree with rainy days being the best. Some of my own favorite photos are on cloudy days. I had one wedding that a lightning storm occurred minutes after the wedding. Makes for great photos. Also, clouds often acts as a natural diffuser.
