How to Embrace Rain on Your Wedding Day

We live in the UK (end of blog…haha) and even throughout the height of summer, the weather can still be very unpredictable. If it looks like it might rain on your wedding day don’t worry, this blog will guide you through my top tips for embracing the rain on your wedding day.

Shift Your Perspective

The first step to embracing rain on your wedding day is to change your mindset. In many cultures, rain on a wedding day is considered a sign of good luck and prosperity. It symbolises cleansing, unity, and renewal. Embracing this can help you see the rain not as an obstacle, but as a great addition to your celebration.

Be Prepared

Instead of worrying about the rain, prepare for it in style. Invest in some chic umbrellas, rain boots, and raincoats. Not only will they keep you dry, but they can also make for some fantastic and memorable photos. Clear umbrellas are especially popular as they keep you dry without obstructing the view.

Create a Backup Plan

Having a solid backup plan is essential. Work with your venue to ensure there’s a plan B for outdoor ceremonies and receptions. Whether it’s a tent, an indoor space, or a pavilion, knowing that you have a sheltered area available can ease your worries.

Embrace the Opportunity for Unique Photos

Rain can provide a great backdrop for your wedding photos. Work with your photographer to take advantage of the unique conditions. Some of the most beautiful wedding photos feature couples dancing in the rain or sharing a kiss under an umbrella.

Embrace it, if you don’t mind getting outfits a little wet it can be so much fun!

Adjust Your Schedule

If the rain is forecasted to be intermittent, be flexible with your schedule, especially your wedding photos. You can slightly adjust the timing of your outdoor photographs to allow you to make the most of dry spells.

Embrace the indoors

Some venues have some beautiful spots indoors for both couple and group photos. Use those spaces and work with your photographer to make the most of your location.

Embracing the rain on your wedding day can be really memorable, it’s not the weather that defines your day. So, grab an umbrella and make your wedding day unforgettable!
