When It Rains, It Pours

"It's like rain on your wedding day..." -Alanis Morrisette

Last night, as I was finally tackling the remains of my 'wedding pile', I stumbled upon the umbrellas I had bought in case of rain on our big day (let's just say I was overly prepared for the winter weather).  Luckily, we were blessed with great weather, especially considering it was mid-February in Toronto.  However, as I stared at our bright colored umbrellas, I couldn't help but think they would make excellent photo ops.

It is an old wives tale that rain on your wedding day brings good luck to the marriage.  This myth came about because it is believed that a wet knot is harder to untie then a dry one.  Thus when two people are 'tying the knot', it is said to be better for it to be on a rainy day (obviously whomever came up with this didn't suffer from frizzy hair syndrome).  True or not, it also creates beautiful photo opportunities.  As the spring season begins, rest easy knowing that a little precipitation will not ruin your day but may even enhance it or add character. If you are a spring or summer bride, be prepared with umbrellas and chic rainboots to make the best of the situation.  Remember that nothing, not even mother nature, can mess with your wedding day.
