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. 🙂
