It's a traditional folk image of what it looks like when bad spirits
are having a party, make mischief in "our world." If all the devils
(evil spirits) were having a big wedding party ("in the sky/air")
there would be gale, hail, etc. Compare it to what people might
imagine the skies would look like if all the angels (good spirits)
were having a wedding party.

is only secondary. It tells someone not to try to be an expert in
things for which s/he is not qualified. It's equally applicable to,
say, a doctor who messes up his car engine while "fixing" it because
s/he doesn't have the skills of a car mechanic.
