What to do when it’s raining on your wedding day

The forecast says it going to be raining on your wedding day? Don’t panic my friend! Think smarter and not harder. Plenty of wedding days have taken place on a rainy day. Here are some tips to still make your wedding day memorable when rain rain won’t go away and come back another day.

  • Talk to your venue

    • Find out what your options are. Do they have another place on-site you can relocate to? Can you use the reception space for the ceremony and reception? Is there a tent they can have ready to put up at the first drop?

  • Clear umbrellas

    • Stay in style while also staying dry! Get some clear umbrellas for your whole wedding party and then let them keep the umbrellas as an extra favor! They won’t obstruct the view or cast shadows so they’re an absolute win in my book. 

  • Rain boots

    • There are so many rain boots that are so stylish and chic nowadays. Some don’t even look like rain boots! And you will probably not be able to really see the boots underneath your dress! Chelsea rain boots are both functional and fashionable and are what I always suggest. 

  • Towels

    • Make sure to have a large stack of towels on deck for you and your wedding party to help you dry off and soak up any excess water. Your venue might also have some available if you ask ahead of time.

  • For the guests

    • Warm drinks like tea, hot chocolate, and hot cider to chase away the chill that often accompanies the rain. Blankets and throws are always a great idea. Also having some umbrellas for those guests who forgot their umbrellas is always a good idea. They can even just be the cheap jawns from Target or CVS.
