wellies for rain


I've never owned a pair of galoshes (and yes, that's what I grew up calling them....not Wellington's, or Wellies, or rain boots...they were galoshes). There's not a huge need for rain gear in Arizona. Obviously. It rains like 3 inches a year or something like that.

Except, the Farmer's Almanac predicted rain for our wedding day. Well - it didn't specifically say RAIN ON MAY 30th - but it indicated that it is a rainy time (and apparently it's a notorious date for rain and snow. *grin*)

Am I bummed? A little...yea. I really want our ceremony to be outside. I really want to skip in the meadows, and along the hiking paths lined with Aspens and Pines. Well. We'll see. It still might be ideal weather...and I actually adore rain anyway.

So now I'm toying around with the idea of getting some cute galoshes...I'm thinking bright yellow.

  1. It's not going to rain on your wedding day. It's just not.

    I love Wellies. I love wearing Wellies...and we get ample opportunity to wear them in Seattle. For me, galoshes are over-boots that fit over your shoes with snap-buckles down the front. Do they even make those anymore?

  2. I had bought some cute plaid Wellies for my wedding day... and they were much needed since it POURED all day long! I knew a few days ahead of the wedding that is was going to rain so I went with it and it did not stress me out at all. It was a beautiful day no matter what the weather was like... and yours will be, too!

    Buy some... even if you don't need them on your wedding day!

  5. I'm planning on bringing my Xtra-Tuffs (a staple if you are on Alaskan waters!) to our outdoor wedding this summer. You can never be too safe when it comes to Alaska weather. And they'll be cute in photos!

  7. Aw cute! I say get them and be prepared and the best thing is, then you'll have a cute pair for later. And by being prepared that means it won't rain. I grew up in Seattle and got my first pair of galoshes in Portland last October. It seems just silly that I never had them before. I kinda wish i had gone with my outdoor theme despite the 30% chance of rain. It was sunny and warm. And when i think about our venue, as beautiful as it is, it could have been February. oh well.

  9. I love rain boots but don't have my own pair. I should living in the NW and all. I like the idea of a short wedding dress with wellies. Now that would be soooooo CUTE.

  10. Do it! That would be adorable. I agree with Rachael, rainy day weddings are turning into the new trend.

    You should get some...just in case. And an umbrella to match. :)

  12. Those are so adorable...but I don't think I could pull that off! :( I totally think you should go for it if you love the look. It's so cool and artsy.

  14. When ever I hear of galoshes, I think of a slow kid I went to school with who always wore black galoshes with huge buckles.

  15. Galoshes are something old men (like my dad) wear.... what do men wear on their feet with a suit? My guess is that unless it is actually snowing, shoes suffice. This is the topic of disagreement between myself and a male friend who is not a sharp dresser.
