Explanation

The clues are that the guests agreed that had the weather NOT been awful; the implication is that it was otherwise perfect. You are looking for a word that means perfect.

Eliminate urban, which means metropolitan and has nothing to do with the meaning you need. Eliminate excessive and disproportionate, choices (C) and (D): Though the wedding may have been overdone or out of balance, these are irrelevant to the clues. Finally, eliminate rustic, choice (F), which means having country simplicity. The best answers are divine and idyllic, both of which mean perfect and produce equivalent, appropriate sentences.

Hence options B and E are best fit!

The use of the words "had it NOT been the terrible weather" indicate that otherwise the wedding would have been perfect.Hence idyllic and divine are the apt answers.
