OMG--- will it ever stop raining?

Part of the reason we picked October to get married is that it's typically the driest month of the year in Atlanta.


It has rained ALMOST everyday this month.  We've had flooding (like major flooding-- homes, schools, highways).  And now it's started again..


So, as you can guess, this is my new wedding panic.  We are trying to have an outdoor wedding--- we have a (expensive) backup plan in place... but I won't be able to use SO much of the decor I've made and we'll have to cough up some serious bucks for a tent.


Please cross your fingers and say a prayer and do a "no rain dance" and anything else you can... send good vibes..   PLEASE don't rain on the 24th!

I'm getting married on the 24th..  at a new venue called the Tommy Lee Cook House, in Newnan.  :)


I'm feeling a LITTLE better today.  The 10 day forcast goes through next Friday, and only says 20% chance of rain.  Hopefully, it'll stay that way.


FINGERS CROSSED!

Im getting married on the 24th too (in STL) and it has been rainy and cold here for the last two weeks. October is usually still short sleeve weather here! My forecast has gone from sunny and 74, to 60% chance of showers, to 40% chance, and now its at 30% chance of showers. Hopefully its making its way back to sunny!

The forecast is looking better...  I'm about to wear out my iPhone from clicking on the weather icon, lol... 


Still have my fingers crossed for everyone!

I sucked it up and bought the tent.....over 3k.....but it's helped calm my nerves tremendously!


Still praying for a turnaround.  The coordinator at my site did say that Accuweather was much more accurate than Weather Channel when it comes to predictive modeling.  Fingers crossed for all of us!!

OMG Amy, i thought the same thing when i was in Atlanta the 2 weeks ago. I remember the drought and water ban and this year, it has been raining almost everyday. You will be fine. I had mine on the 10th with 60% rain in the forecast. It did drizzle here and there but not a heavy down pour! I will pray for you.....
