Rain on your Wedding Day

Rain on your wedding day is never ideal, but it's something that many couples have to be aware of, especially in Florida. If you are planning a wedding outside, we've got some tips, tricks, and even fun ideas to share with you in case it does end up raining on your wedding day.

Have a Backup Plan

And be realistic about it. If your ceremony and reception are planned outside, make sure that your inside backup location is large enough to accommodate all of your guests.

Be Optimistic

We know that if it rains on your wedding day, it won't be exactly what you've been dreaming of, but you should always make the best of it! The real reason you're having a wedding is to marry the person you love! Did you know that rain on your wedding day is actually good luck? It's because a wet knot is harder to untie!

Be Prepared (In a fun way!)

So maybe it rained in the morning and stopped before your outdoor ceremony, but the ground is still a bit wet and mushy. So you're wondering, "how will my bridesmaids walk down the aisle and take photos in their heels?!" Maybe they don't have to! If you think it might rain on your wedding day, grab some cute wellies for yourself, the groom, and the bridal party, and give them as a gift! Bonus: get a cute picture with you and your bridesmaids in your rain-boots!

Plus, even if it doesn't rain, your bridal party still gets a cute, useful souvenir from your wedding day!

Make it a Photo Op!

So you've got your photo with your rain boots on, now why not use the rain to your advantage with some beautiful photos that wouldn't have been possible without the rain?

We love the photo on the right with the reflection of the couple in the rainwater. And it wouldn't have been possible without the rain!

We've had outdoor weddings where unwelcome rain has made it's way into the day as well. Luckily, our couples took some of these tips and still had fabulous days! Check out this fantastic photo from one of our weddings last year!

  1. Thanks dear for giving me nice idea to make a backup plan. I am also planning for a wedding outside but never thought of rain. We have booked outside area of Las Vegas Weddings venue, now I will book hall of same venue so that we have a backup plan if that will be rainy day.
