    This couple in Brooklyn had horrendous weather on their wedding day. It even flooded their venue, yet they never let the weather dampen their spirits.

    Most people would be gutted that this happened on their day but they made the most of it and have some great pictures.

    It would depend on where you had the wedding as to how good the pics turned out. The one of the Brooklyn street is fab, such a great setting. Middle of a boggy, muddy field probs not as great.

    I'll be disappointed if it rains on our wedding day. It being realistic I live in Scotland chances of rain are high. Just hoping that since it's still raining in June we might get lucky in August lol.

    I won't be too bothered, the only thing I wanted the quartet to roam around in the courtyard with the guests during the drinks, and if it's a bit rainy or wet out there, they won't want to.

    We had a rainy day but for the time we had to be outside for all the proper photos it was miraculously dry and my dress didn't get dirty at all. It was raining when I arrived at the church though. It was still a perfect day for us.

    I'm afraid the British weather is so unpredictable. We hoped a May wedding would mean little chance of rain. At points through the day it chucked it down. We were just lucky that when we needed the rain to stop for photos it did.

    My sister had an April wedding, she planned for cold and rain, it was warm, dry and sunny all day.

    I know people who have had August weddings and been totally rained out.

    We didn't mind the rain as it let up when we needed it to and was quite nice to be inside in the warmth when it started chucking it down during the wedding breakfast.

    Friends of ours had a huge marquee in a garden of a big house they hired for about a week. They tried to scrimp and not have a flooring, the weather was heavy downpours every now and again with really strong winds. The morning of the wedding they were trying to sort out flooring as the marquee leaked.

    It wouldn't be the end of the world for me if it rained on our wedding day. Our photographers are excellent with using rain and lighting to create some beautiful effects and venue is prepped with brollies for guests. This may sound odd but I also don't want blazing sunshine on my day either. I love taking photos and for me as someone who loves whipping out my SLR at any given oppertunity I prefer lightly overcast weather which gives the best light.

    Chances of this happening on my day in August? Hopeful.

    I agree about the blazing sunshine, it just makes people squint and not a great picture. Fortunately for us, even though it was sunny, it was October and late afternoon so not full on bright sunshine in your face

    We planned for rain, although we didn't get any in the end. I made sure that there were nice umbrellas for myself and my husband, and there was an alternative entry into the church that didn't involve lining up outside. Otherwise everything was indoors. I think in the UK there always has to be a plan B for anything that involves being outside, whatever the time of year.

    it rained most of the morning on the day of our wedding but we did get married in November was hoping it would just be cold. It was also raining as I left the house to go to the hotel. (I got ready at home as I wanted to go from there) but we managed to get some lovely pictures as it stopped as the photos were done.

    My son's wedding it was a lovely day in June but it hammered down in the evening the roads were flooded...

    Oh dear - I can imagine a marquee in a field if it's really chucking it down heavily for hours on end could be an issue unless there was a non-grassy path leading up to it. Would be a nighmare sinking in mud for the bridal party and wedding party.

    I think in this country you need to plan for rain, even in the height of summer.
