Wedding Details: How Can We Plan for Wedding Day Weather?

Q:

I am getting married in October and the wedding reception will be held in my parents' backyard. Where can I find out what the weather has been in the past on this date, including precipitation, temperature, and sunset? I've tried the Internet and have had no luck.

A:

Well, there's always the trusty Farmer's Almanac -- it lists all of that information (and there is a web site at Almanac.com ). If you don't want to go on just one source, why not try contacting a meteorologist at one of your local network affiliates? If anyone should keep records on this stuff or can forecast what it might be like next October, they can. At the very least, they'll at least tell you where you can find out. Good luck!

What's the Basic Wedding Reception Timeline?

I'm not certain about the order of events at the wedding reception. Could you please give a rough timeline of the following events: receiving line, cocktail hour, first dance, champagne toast, best man and maid of honor speeches, dinner and cake cutting? I feel clueless!
