“IT’S LIKE RAIN ON YOUR WEDDING DAY!”
A rainy wedding day may seem like a nightmare, but with a bit of preparation, it can still be a beautiful and memorable occasion. Here are some tips to help you make the most of a rainy wedding day:
Have a Backup Plan:
- If you’re planning an outdoor wedding, make sure you have a backup plan in place in case of rain. This could mean having a tent, an indoor venue or a covered area that you can quickly move to in the event of rain. Make sure your vendors and wedding party are aware of the backup plan so that everyone is on the same page.
Keep an Eye on the Weather:
- Check the weather forecast leading up to your wedding day, and if a rainy wedding day is in the forecast, consider purchasing some clear umbrellas for you and your bridal party. They can make for some great photos, and will keep you dry as you move between locations. If you want to get a *personal* forecast for your wedding day, check out our Wedding Meteorology Confidence partner, Ironic Reports. “Isn’t Ironic, don’t you think?”
Embrace the Rain:
- If you’re not too fussed about getting a bit wet, embrace the rain and have some fun with it. Jumping in puddles, dancing in the rain, and even taking some romantic photos under an umbrella can all make for some unique and memorable moments.
Adjust Your Timeline:
- Rain can cause delays, so be sure to adjust your wedding day timeline accordingly. Allow extra time for transportation, getting ready, and any other activities that might be affected by the weather.
Communicate with Your Vendors:
Keep Your Guests Informed:
- Make sure your guests are aware of the backup plan and any changes to the timeline. You could include a note in your wedding invitations, or have a sign at the entrance of the venue letting guests know where to go in the event of rain.
- Finally, stay positive and remember that rain on your wedding day is said to be good luck! Embrace the unexpected and make the most of your special day, no matter the weather.
