In this country it doesn’t matter what time of year it is, or what the weather forecast says, there is always a chance it will rain, at least for a little while. This does not matter much most of the time, but when your wedding day is on the horizon, the prospect of rain can be a real worry!
Nobody wants it to rain on their wedding day, but you know what? Rain doesn’t have to spell disaster for your big day, even if you’ve planned an outdoor event! Below are some top tips to ensure that even if it does rain, your wedding won’t be a washout.
Always have a backup plan
If you are having an outdoor wedding, then it is always a good idea to have a backup plan. So, you could discuss with the venue about having access to indoor buildings if it rains, or if that is not possible, you could have a marquee and tents ready to use if the dreaded drizzle appears. Of course, English rain is often fleeting, especially in the summer, so even just waiting for a little while could be enough to ensure you can get through your vows dry.
Wear your wellies
When you’re buying your wedding outfit, chances are the thought of p[icking up a pair of wellies has never crossed your mind, but if you are getting married in a field or one of the many great country house wedding venues in this country, then it is a good idea to pick up a pretty pair of wellies that you can wear under your dress if the rain turns the fields to mud or the area around the venue gets too wet. You can, of course, change out of your wellies once you get out of the rain, and it will mean you aren’t dealing with muddy heels for the rest of the day.
Clear umbrellas are a must
If there’s a chance that rain could affect your wedding day, then investing in enough clear umbrellas for the wedding party is a great idea, as it will keep you all dry while ensuring you can still be seen in all of your glory through the umbrella windows.
Don’t forget the towels and blankets
It’s also a good idea to bring along plenty of towels and blankets. So that if it does get really wet, you and your guests can dry off and get warm and not let it ruin the rest of your day. Choose fabrics that match the theme of the wedding, pile them up in neat displays and you could even make a feature of them.
You will stress a lot less and enjoy your wedding a lot more if you simply embrace the possibility of rain. Clouds and rain can make for some surprisingly cool and dramatic wedding photos after all, and if you are prepared for comfort in wet conditions, you can and will have fun!
As you can see, come rain or shine, your wedding day can be amazing. Good luck!
