05 Mar You Can Never Trust The Weather! What To Do If Rain Is Forecast On Your Wedding Day?
The summer is the most popular time for weddings for a reason, this is because plenty of couples hope for lovely weather during their special day.
However, as we all know, here in the UK it isn’t always easy to guarantee that we will get good weather.
You are incredibly likely to find yourself obsessively checking your local weather forecast during the run up to your wedding, however, what happens if you find that there are likely to be some grey clouds on your big day?
Think about protecting yourself
One of the best ways to make sure that your wedding day isn’t ruined by rain is to plan for it.
This may even make sense if the weather forecast looks okay, as you never know with the British weather what could be around the corner.
You could make the time to put yourself together a bit of a wet weather kit.
Make sure that you have a little jacket that you could pop over your dress as well as wellington boots or heel protectors if you need to walk around.
Umbrellas are also a must have, these come in so many different styles and colours that you may even find one that matches in with the theme of your big day.
Another top tip is to make sure that you know how best to pick up your wedding dress so that it doesn’t get dirty and wet, or have someone on hand to do this job for you!
Embrace the weather with some amazing rainy day photos
It is likely that you may worry that rain is going to have an impact on your wedding photos.
A good photographer will know how to work with the rain.
There are bound to be plenty of nooks and cubbies throughout your venue which are going to make for an ideal location no matter the weather.
Not only this, but you could also get some truly magical photos underneath an umbrella just the two of you.
Or perhaps a group photo with a whole host of different coloured umbrellas?
Take care of your guests
Talking of your guests, it is important that you think about them if your weather isn’t looking particularly welcoming.
There are a number of ways that you can do this.
Have lots of umbrellas on hand for them to use (also handy for the group shot from above) and perhaps opt for some warming hot chocolates, teas and coffees between the ceremony and reception when they are likely to be out in the elements the most.
Also, bring the fun inside, why not use the empty dance floor space to host some garden games?
Or perhaps devise a Mr and Mrs quiz to keep them all laughing?
As you can see, the rain doesn’t have to have an impact on the magic of your big day.
The most important thing to do is to stop worrying about what is going to happen in the sky.
After all, you are going to have a lot of other things to think about as it comes ever closer.
