What Happens if it Rains on My Wedding Day?
Fickle and unpredictable, the weather is one thing that you can’t exactly plan on when it comes to your wedding. Spring weddings especially are at risk for unpredictable showers, so what are you to do if Mother Nature decides to rain on your wedding? Below are a few tips to help you prepare for, and deal with, unfavorable weather on your special day.
The best way to combat icky weather is by having a “rain plan”, particularly if you are planning on having your wedding outdoors.
1) Have an Indoor Escape Plan
When looking at venues, try to find one that has an indoor option as well where you can transfer your ceremony or reception if it begins to rain.
2) Rent a Tent
If you absolutely cannot part with your outdoor setting and it does not have an indoor “escape plan” look into the costs of renting a tent or keeping one on hold. Keep in mind this solution only works for light to moderate rain storms- a heavy rain will soak the ground beneath the tent. Regardless of how absolutely stunning your venue is, nobody will appreciate muddy shoes!
3) Keep it Matching!
Look at the weather forecast prior to your wedding, and if it looks like it’s going to rain start looking for rain essentials for those in your wedding. You can’t control the weather but you can still maintain unity in the umbrellas your bridesmaids are using!
