So the wedding day is approaching, all the details are finalized, you have checked the forecast and..wait a minute… RAIN! This was not the plan! Don’t worry rain is not the disaster many would lead you to believe it is. With some proper planning, the rain will not impact your day in the slightest. It may even make it better. Read on to find out more:
Talk to the Venue
Most wedding venues have a rain plan. They will erect a marquee, or have a beautiful room inside. Rest assured that weddings are big business nowadays. While you fear rain could ruin your special day, wedding venues fear that rain could ruin a lucrative wedding season, so don’t worry, they have a plan for that.
Take Advantage of It
How many wedding photos have you seen that look the exact same? A little rain can give you something different. A photo of the happy couple but reflected through a puddle? A rainbow in the sky above? A colorful umbrella to offset the simpler colors you and your spouse are wearing? There are so many beautiful ways to capture a wedding when it rains. Embrace them all.
Rain brings people closer together
So you booked a massive venue and now people won’t be able to enjoy it all due to rain. This is great. The guests you invited will have to get a little snugger. More snug means more talking, more talking means more fun, more fun means one epic wedding.
Rain is seen as good luck in some cultures
If you are one who believes in luck (and even those who aren’t usually are on their wedding day) then take solace in knowing that rain on your wedding day is considered good luck in some cultures. Heres to a great life ahead.
Overall a little rain is not so bad. The only thing you must do is plan properly for it, as your guests likely won’t. Have umbrellas on hand, towels and whatever else you think you may need to keep your guests in the party mood.
