So you're freaking out about the weather report, panicking over WHAT IF IT RAINS ON MY WEDDING DAY?!

First, take a deep breath. Rainy weddings can be beyond gorgeous, and we've got a deep archive full of real weddings that prove it.

Second, steal this idea: for less than $4, you can buy a pack of tiny cork-stopped vials. On your wedding day, ask someone to collect some rain water for you in a cup, and then funnel it into these tiny vials for tiny sentimental mementos of your very gorgeous, very rainy wedding day.

(You might want to use wax to seal the cork closed on the vial to avoid evaporation.)

…See? Now you're going to be disappointed if it's NOT rainy on your wedding day.

Thanks again to Unity in Glass for sponsoring Offbeat Bride this week!

  1. This makes me wish it did rain on my wedding day! I love this idea so much

    (Side note, is "Participate in this conversation via e-mail" the same as the "notify me of new comments" that used to be there? I thought the email thing was just a new way to reply)

      • Thanks 🙂

        Aren't you worried this will result in fewer page views for you since now people don't have to go onto the page to make their reply?

        • My apologies to derailing the conversation from the original post (which is amazing)

          Can I also ask if there's a way to have it keep my usual name instead of my email name?

  2. I love this idea! I'm going to buy a bunch of vials and bring one to the weddings I'm in this summer– then I'll have a little post-wedding gift for the brides!
