All brides pray for no rain on their wedding day, but it won’t hurt to take necessary precautionary measures, just in case. Don’t you agree? If you think about it, it’s better to be safe than sorry. So here’s a list of things you can do to prepare for the possibility of rain on your wedding day.
(1) Have a plan B.
Ask your wedding venue if they have another room with a roof in case it rains and if you can have it on stand by. You can also rent a tent ready, just in case, if your venue doesn’t have another option.
(2) Don’t forget to take good care of your guests.
If your venue does not have a back up option, or the ceremony is happening already, please make sure not to keep your guests under rain for too long. Especially for the elderly, they might easily get sick under rain.
(3) Deal with the emotions, then move on.
If you catch yourself in the middle of a downpour in your wedding day, it’s okay to get frustrated. But deal with those emotions and move on a quickly as possible. Instead on dwelling on your negative emotions, try to shift to a more positive perspective so you can enjoy the rest of the day.
(4) Take the cue from your photographer.
Keep an open mind and let your photographer help you out. He or she will know what to do–how to play with the rain to get romantic shots. So don’t worry, you can still have magical photos even if it rains. In fact, this article contains tips on how to have beautiful wedding photos even if it rains.
