Rain Check

It is what every bride and groom dread on their wedding day... RAIN. You keep checking the weather and it says clear skies, that is until the week before your big day and the forecast goes gray (literally).

We found some great tips on to share with you guys on how to stay ahead of the weather.

Rainy wedding day tip 1: Bridal Beauty

"Now let’s be vain for a moment.  Rain is terrible for hair – even the most coiffed, hair-sprayed of manes.  Talk to your hairdresser about making your style as secure as possible for your wedding day and ask them to show your mum or bridesmaid how to recover it if it starts to look a little windswept of frizzy.  This may involve emergency supplies of hairspray, and hair straighteners close to hand. Similarly, don’t risk ruining your wedding shoes on the way to the ceremony to find yourself conscious of them later in the day, with their mud stains and wet blotches. Consider taking a pair of wellington boots which can add a really fun look to your photos if the heavens open; or perhaps buy a second pair of shoes that you can wear outside and change into later in the day. Umbrellas are a very easy contingency to have in place and there are some really pretty or unusual designs around to choose from, which could also double up as a parasol if the sun comes out."

Rainy wedding day tip 2: Think about your guests

"It’s not only yourself, your wedding dress and your groom (in that order!) that you have to worry about if the weather is wet on your wedding day. Think about your guests and how they’ll be kept warm and dry too. Perhaps provide the ushers with a supply of umbrellas to hand out to soggy guests and also ensure that they greet guests at the car where possible so they don’t get drenched on the way in to the ceremony or reception. Supplying ponchos for your guests may be taking it a tad too far, so maybe temporary walkways or gazebos are the way forward instead."

Rainy wedding day tip 3: Keep things in perspective

"The very best advice is to ensure that you keep things in perspective and enjoy the day as a whole.  Whether you are met with showers and storms or glorious sunshine on your wedding day, your day will be perfect no matter what, so long as you’re in the right mindset. It’s also worth knowing that a rainy wedding day is actually considered lucky in some cultures. Similarly, every time it rains after your big day, it will be a nice reminder of the happiest day of your life – especially if there’s a rainbow!"
