Rain on your Wedding Day!

So the big day has been planned for 1, 2 maybe even 3 years and you have thought of every little detail possible and back up plans just in case! However, there is one aspect of a wedding which is completely out of anyone’s control, the weather!

For many, the dream wedding is with blue sky and not a rain cloud in sight, but if the heaven’s do decide to open then it isn’t the end of the world. Here are a few idea’s which can help prepare…

Clear or white umbrellas

You can get some stunning photos together cuddled under your umbrellas… make sure they are white or clear as this will let more light in for your pics! Some venues do have a secret stash of umbrellas, just in case, so write this on your list of questions for the venue in your final details meeting to see if this is something which they can provide if needed.

Be flexible with your locations for your photos

You might have all of the locations for your wedding photos planned, but trust your photographer, they have a special eye for great locations, both indoor and out even in the rain! At the time you might think is a strange place but you just wait until you see your wedding album. A photo of you both stood next to a soggy puddle will turn into the most incredible image with a reflection!

Bring spare shoes

This is a top tip, especially if you have splashed out on some designer Jimmy Choo’s which definitely won’t suit the mud and your heels will also sink in the mud! Wellies or converse (you can now buy both of these in a wedding style!) will be much more suited to abit of rain and puddles!

Don’t be precious about your dress

You only wear it once! If you spend all day worrying about your veil or your train getting wet or a little bit muddy then you will be looking backwards rather than forwards towards your photographer and guests! You could also add something a little different to keep you warm/dry, who knew a leather jacket looks so good with a wedding dress!

Go with the flow, embrace the rain!

If you do get some rain on your wedding day, don’t let it spoil your day! If it was super sunny then everyone would squint on photos or be hidden behind sunglasses anyway. It is out of anyone’s control so make the most of it, whatever the weather!
