This Bride Braved a Storm for Her Wedding Day — Would You?


Is there anything a bride-to-be fears more than rain on her wedding day? Probably. But rain ranks right up there with a torn dress, missing maid-of-honor, and uncooperative flower girls. But a tropical storm? Well, that would put a damper on even the most optimistic of brides. But that’s exactly what newlywed Alice was faced with on the eve before her big day. For today’s #MarriedInModCloth feature, the recently wedded Alice shares the tips, tricks, and rainy day scares that made her wedding day amazing:

Newlyweds: Alice (bride) and Jack (groom).

Gigs: Alice is a grad student in clinical psychology and Jack is a political consultant

How did you meet?: We met in a bar!

We hear you had a weather scare on your big day: There was a huge tropical storm the night before! We were scrambling to make sure everyone made it to the island. Waking up to a glorious morning the day-of was such a huge relief.


Can you tell us a bit about what you’re wearing in your photos?: I wanted classic and fun. And pockets! I wore Modcloth for the rehearsal (above) and my bridesmaids rocked it (the Luck Be a Lady Dress in Navy and Ivory) for the big day. Two of my bridesmaids have already worn their dresses again … when does that actually happen?

What was your first dance song?: “It Had to Be You” — the Harry Connick Jr. version from the movie When Harry Met Sally.

Most memorable moment from the big day?: The awesome dance party that I didn’t want to end!
