6 Tips To Handle Rain On An Outdoor Wedding Venue

There’s an old people’s saying about raining on wedding day, that if the girl licks a pan with her fingers, it is going to rain heavily on her wedding day. As fun as this might sound on a regular day, you don’t want your big day to be ruined by the showers. And when it’s an outdoor wedding, you don’t want all the décor to drench with water, the food all wasted and no chair or table to sit on. So what do you do IF that happens? The weather sure can be unpredictable despite all the weather reports you might have kept in mind when finalizing the date. Here are a few tips on how you can manage if it rains on your wedding day:

Keep A Back-Up Plan

It’s always safe to have a plan B for your big day. When you book your venue, make sure to talk to the manager about the backup plan in case of any weather changes. It’s always stress-free and helpful when you know you have a backup option to step indoors for the ceremony.


Prepare To Avoid A Make-Up Disaster

Your make-up should always be prepared for a disaster. Wear waterproof eyeliner and mascara and apply water-resistant foundation that does not melt when it rains. Get your friend or sister to keep your make-up bag with them in case you need to freshen up.


Chance To Accessorize

Here is a great chance for you to accessorize your wedding with colourful umbrellas! Prepare rainy day favours for your guests and it will be a sight to cherish when they open them altogether and it will be colours under the grey sky. Or you can even go for an umbrella ceiling!


Communicate With Your Vendors

You have hired some of the best vendors in town who know how to tackle such situations. Coordinated with them and let them know that they need to have a plan B in case it rains. It is imperative to be on the same page on your big day, but trust them to handle everything and there will be no chaos.


Hire A Visually Creative Photographer

Rain on the wedding day might sound gloomy, but it results in some of the best shots. Hire a photographer who knows how to tackle the very rainy situation and use natural light to take perfect shots. Talk to them beforehand and prepare them so they know what they can get out of this weather.


Accept And Embrace

It might seem like the end of the world for you but rain on the wedding day is actually considered to be good luck! You are allowed to be upset for a little while but then calm down and look at the positive side. You’re going to get a very romantic photoshoot, so embrace nature and let it be!


Even on this fine day with raindrops falling at you, remember that you are surrounded by your close ones who are there to celebrate the start of your new life. Do not let anything ruin your mood, and we bet after reading these six tips, you’ll be hoping that it actually rains on your big day!
