As Alanis Morissette would say “and isn’t it ironic… don’t you think” but is a rainy wedding day really as bad as it’s made out to be?
The word that comes to mind when thinking about a wedding is LOVE, so why let rain ruin a day where you are vowing to spend the rest of your lives together.
If you can imagine your special day with rain and prepare around it, you can make the most of it rather than dread it. Just think of the unique pictures you could create, the beautiful accessories you could purchase. As long as you prepare for your guests too, they could also see a positive side.
If you are planning an outdoor wedding then you should consider hiring a gazebo/tent, creating carpeted pathways, buying elegant wellies, providing plenty of towels and beautiful umbrellas. Not only can these items save you and your guests from feeling uncomfortable, wet or cold, but they can also help create the most unique and adorable photos.
If you decide on having your wedding indoors, you could still obtain these items for when you and your guests travel to and from the church or vehicles. By allowing your guests to stay dry and comfortable, they will still be able to enjoy themselves fully.
If you are planning on an outdoor wedding, it’s always best to hire a gazebo/tent whether it is forecasted to rain or not. A wedding tent can create intimacy between the couple and guests, protect your wedding from extreme weather conditions (not only rain, but sun, cold and wind), plus if it is well decorated, a tent can look fantastic in photos.
If you are in a field, a dance floor can be very easily made. Pretty lights and drapes add to a romantic and charming atmosphere.
Some tents can have transparent covers or can be opened all around the sides, so the light comes through giving the feeling that you’re outside.
A famous quote by Vivian Greene – ‘life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… it’s about learning to dance in the rain’ so if you get the chance, why not dance in the rain on your wedding day.
