“Wet Bride, Lucky Bride”
I think this Italian wedding saying, sums up what rain means on your wedding day.
Most of us, I would imagine, would hope it didn’t rain on their big day. However, if it does rain cats and dogs like today, do not worry! Rain symbolizes blessings, cleansing, unity, and a new day.
In some cultures it is also a symbol of fertility. Due to these positive connotations, a rainy wedding day is very often considered good.
First of all, rain signifies blessings. Blessings speak of hope, approval, and prosperity. It is therefore considered good luck if it rains on your special day, due to the hopeful expectations of a happy life.
Rain also cleanses, ever notice how fresh and clean everywhere looks after a shower of rain. After the rain, there is a clean slate that allows you two to begin afresh and anew and a happy life together!
Rain or shine on your wedding day, it will always remain one of the most special and memorable days of your life!
