We can't all be lucky enough to get a crisp and dry winters
day for our wedding, so if you want to be prepared for what you could be facing
then here are a few tips to keep the rain from spoiling your day!
No matter how hard we try, we cannot control the weather, so
if it's going to rain it's going to rain. The best thing you can do is get some
fantastic candid photos of you and your hubby splashing in the puddles and
enjoying yourself on your special day. Photographs are guaranteed to look
gorgeous in overcast weather because the light saturation will look amazing in
comparison to that of a blindingly sunny day and you can have a bit of fun
picking out matching umbrellas in the days coming up to your
The easiest way to let the weather put a downer on your day
is being unprepared. Even if you're in denial that it could rain, you'll regret
not going welly shopping when the day finally arrives. There are tons of ways to
incorporate rain into your day and no; it is not a sign from the gods that
something will go wrong. Bring a pair of stylish wellies for pictures, so you
don't wreck your brand new Valentinos and bring an umbrella, everything else
will work out.
Pictures can be tricky on a wet day but talk to your
photographer and I'm sure they will have many ideas that will make your wedding
album one of a kind. If you're feeling super adventurous and you have a
few umbrellas then take outdoor pictures, they will be completely unique and
you'll look back on them so fondly in years to come. Just have fun
in the rain.. it’s possible you know!
This is an obvious one but it's so important, some of your
guests might not be as keen to stay out in the rain as you are so be mindful of
them. Provide umbrellas at the ceremony or remind everybody to bring their own
and don't have your wedding anywhere too open to the elements. Ask your venue
when they will be ready to receive your guests and organise transport to the
venue from the church at that time.
