Rain, rain, go away...
It’s the height of wedding season and of course it’s raining cats and dogs!
Don’t you just love the unpredictability of the Great British weather and our so called ‘Summer’!?…
If you are looking ahead at the weather forecast for your wedding day and are filled with dread when you see RAIN!!!
First, be hopeful, as we know forecasts are quite often wrong. However if not, and you are unlucky enough to have rain on your big day, with a little contingency planning you can combat and embrace your #wetwedding.
Here are my top tips to make sure the rain doesn’t ruin your day;
1. The obvious one - Umbrellas! BIG umbrellas and plenty of them!
Whether it’s the dash to and from the wedding car, an outdoor ceremony or of course those scenic outdoor photographs and everything in between, you and your guests will NEED an umbrella.
I’m sure I don’t need to explain why… drowned rat springs to mind, eeek!
2. Embrace the rain for those dreamy under the brolly shots
Remember, photographers are geniuses. The raindrops and an intense sky will create a stunning one-of-a-kind backdrop. Why not take it to the next level and wear colourful wellies to contrast or match your theme?
3. Check if your venue has a rainy day plan
Is your ceremony and/or reception outside? If so, the venue should have a rainy day contingency plan, this is the UK after all! If plan B is needed don’t panic, you are marrying the love of your life and that is all that matters.
4. Pack the following items to stay dry, warm, and combat the ‘wet look’;
A pretty jacket, wellington boots, heel protectors, blankets, towels, hair brush/comb, make-up, hair dryer, hairspray, tissues, mirror, cotton buds. You may also want a cosy cup of hot chocolate, yum!
5. Remember that rain on your wedding day actually means good luck!
In some cultures it is considered good luck as this symbolises fertility, cleansing and unity. A knot that becomes wet is hard to untie, therefore when you “tie the knot” on a rainy day, it is said that your marriage will be equally as hard to untie. Aaaawwww! :)
