Many brides worry too much about the possibility of their rainy wedding day. My advice is – please don’t worry. If it rains, it rains, there is nothing you can do so you might as well make the most out of this situation. Instead of checking the weather forecast every day and trying to predict what’s going to happen, prepare for the worst possibility. If it doesn’t rain you will be over the moon but if it rains – you will be ready.

  • get your wellies and umbrellas ready. You might also think of some matching umbrellas for your bridesmaids. I really love the translucent ones – so perfect for the couple, so romantic!
  • trust your photographer – there are some amazing techniques available to capture the beauty of the rain on your wedding day – you might end up with some truly beautiful images.
  • be flexible with time and be willing to have a short photo shoot break during the reception. That cheesecake might wait twenty minutes, right? Sometimes the evening sky after the rainy day might be really beautiful – you just have to have this picture in the collection of your wedding images.
  • think of an alternative location. If you’re thinking of the group pictures in front of the church – maybe having them in the church or a bit later at the venue could help achieve better results?
  • and remember – some people say: ”it can only rain for good luck on your wedding day”.

Embrace it – don’t worry if it rains on your wedding day – it will still be the best day of your life!

Just look at Sam & Matt’s wedding – they had the most rainy wedding day we have ever experienced. They also had the most amazing double rainbow, so even the most rainy days can bring the best surprises. My advice is – embrace the day, have no expectations and just assume it’s going to rain. Because if it doesn’t – the good weather will be a bonus. If you want to see more dramatic skies on a wedding day, take a look at Kirsten & Rob’s wedding day at Oldwalls Gower in Wales.
