Sometimes we have to just dance in the rain.

We can track all of the apps and pray to all the gods, but ultimately, the weather is going to do what the weather is going to do. The pitter-patter of raindrops can seem like an unexpected guest on your wedding day, but fear not – a rainy wedding day can sometimes be just as enchanting, if not more so, than a sunny one. So, couples, put on your wellies and let's explore how to prepare for the possibility of rain on your special day and why it's okay to embrace it with open arms.

Preparing for Rain:

  1. Choose a Rain-Friendly Venue: When you begin your venue search, try to opt for one that offers both indoor and outdoor spaces. This way, you have the flexibility to move the celebration inside if the weather takes an unexpected turn. A venue with beautiful indoor options can be just as romantic and charming as an outdoor setting.

  2. Under-cover Structures: If your venue allows it and your budget permits it, consider an 'indoor-outdoor' structure like a Clear Span marquee which features a clear roof and walls; or a Tipi /Marquee that enable you to experience all of the beauty around you, safe in the knowledge that you and your guests are warm and dry.

  3. Stylish Rain Accessories: Don't let a little rain dampen your spirits; instead, turn it into an opportunity to showcase your style. Invest in stylish rain accessories, such as a transparent umbrella that complements your wedding theme or colourful rain boots for a playful touch (I LOVED mine!). These accessories can add a unique and memorable element to your wedding photos.

  4. Water-Resistant Attire: If your venue has no indoor option whatsoever; consider choosing dress fabrics that can withstand a few raindrops. Materials such as tulle and lace are more forgiving in wet conditions, and a shorter hemline can help prevent your dress from dragging on wet ground. If you shop around, you can even find suits and jackets that are water-resistant.

  5. Communication is Key: Keep your guests informed about the potential for rain and any alternative plans. Make sure your invitation or wedding website includes a wet weather plan so that everyone is aware of the backup arrangements. Clear communication will alleviate any concerns and allow your guests to prepare accordingly.

Why Rain Can Enhance Your Wedding Day:

  1. Romantic Atmosphere: There's something undeniably romantic about rain – the soft sound of rain on windows, mist in the air, and the cosy ambiance it creates. A little rain can add a real atmosphere to your wedding, making it even more memorable and romantic. After all - who can resist that unique fresh fragrance you only get once the rain has passed?

  2. Stunning Photos: Rain can transform your wedding photos into works of art. Reflections on wet surfaces, the glistening raindrops, and the soft lighting can create a magical and ethereal atmosphere. A skilled photographer will know how to capture the beauty of the rain, turning potential challenges into stunning visual memories.

  3. Community Bonding: A rainy day can really bring people together. Guests can huddle under umbrellas, share a laugh about the weather, and create a sense of camaraderie. Shared experiences, even unexpected ones, can strengthen the bonds between family and friends.

As you prepare for your wedding day, remember that rain is just a small detail in the grand tapestry of your love story. While planning for the possibility of rain is wise, it's equally important to embrace whatever weather comes your way. So, let go of the worry, dance in the rain, and savour every moment of your wedding day – it's a celebration of love that nothing, not even raindrops, can dampen.
