They say that the weather is always unpredictable, but it's especially true when you're planning a wedding. Even in the middle of August, the sky can open up and rain on your parade. If changing seasons or stormy weather are causing you to worry about your outdoor plans, don't fret—there are plenty of ways to turn even the wettest day into one that will make your guests talk about it for years to come.
You can spend all your time fretting over these concerns, or you could focus on what's truly relevant—like making sure that both you and your partner know how happy you are with each other. It's not always easy, especially when there are so many unknown variables.
It’s important to remember that rain doesn’t have to be the end of your day. Even if it is raining on your wedding day, there are plenty of ways to make things go right. Some people decide that if it rains on their wedding day, they will just get married in a tent or under an outdoor canopy. Others choose a venue with indoor spaces where they can still hold the ceremony and reception. Some couples even simply bring umbrellas! It is Always Important to have backup plan for EVERY outdoor wedding!
Incorporate the Weather into your day!
You can't change the weather, so it's best to embrace it. Rainy weddings are actually quite common and often beautiful in their own way. If you're looking for ways to make the most of a rainy day, take a cue from these couples who've gone through similar circumstances:
• Go with the flow
One couple decided against having an indoor ceremony because they realized they wouldn't be able to have one if they waited until after dinner if it was raining at that point in time. Instead of being frustrated by this, they decided instead to use umbrellas as part of their decor and incorporate them into their first dance choreography! Not only did this save them money on renting out space indoors, but it also had great sentimental value because both bride and groom had used umbrellas when they were children visiting an amusement park together (and when they would go outside in general).
•Be prepared for anything—even rainbows!
Another couple knew there was always a chance of rain on their wedding day since storms were common during September where they lived; however, when clouds began rolling in before dawn broke and thunder rumbled across town just before sunrise...they knew things weren't going as planned! Rather than waiting around inside until it passed over or trying to reschedule everything later on down the road (which could be expensive), these two decided instead upon using their outdoor venue even though conditions looked bleak outside at first glance: "Our photographer took some amazing photos throughout our ceremony under dark skies filled with lightning," said one bride about her experience getting married outdoors despite initial predictions saying otherwise."
The best way to deal with bad weather on your wedding day is to stay cool and go with the flow. If you’re lucky enough to have a photographer who specializes in lighting, this could be the perfect opportunity for some beautiful shots under those clouds—and if not, there are still plenty of ways to make the most of it!
