People tend to worry about whether the weather on the big day will be inclement or incredible. If you are having an outdoor wedding it is ALWAYS a good idea to have a ‘plan B’. Your wedding day should be one of the happiest days of your life. A day filled with love, joy, hope, expectation, and excitement. Try not to let the weather get the better of you!
From all indications I have found in my research that rain on your wedding day brings good luck… and here are some of the reasons why.
Rain brings water to dry places, and causes crops to flourish, so it is often viewed as being a blessing and bringing good luck. It cleanses and offers a new start, not only to grass and plants but also to the new relationship that marriage signifies.
Rain on your wedding day can also mean unity. The rationale behind this stems from the reference to marriage as “tying the knot.” It is no secret that a wet knot is much harder to pull apart than a dry one, as the water makes it harder to untie. Therefore if it rains when you are “tying the knot” it suggests unity, and the creation of a stronger bond that will not easily be broken.
Rain on your special day can be considered a stroke of luck for several reasons. Rain symbolizes blessings, cleansing, unity, and a new day.
So enjoy your day. Celebrate with your spouse, your family and friends… that is truly the blessing of the day!
