Rainy day blues? No worries!

You consulted the farmer’s almanac when you picked the date, and for the last handful of years there has been no rain. You have the rental company on speed dial in case of a freak rainstorm that you (cross your fingers) hope doesn’t blow on through. In the week leading up to the big day, the homepage on your computer has changed from theknot.com to weather.com and so far, so good. Your wedding day is supposed to be bright and sunny!!! Cut to the morning of the ceremony,  the reception site is picture perfect except for a few dark clouds but its ok, until…whats that? Raindrops? No way, impossible!

Well it is possible, and happens all the time. There is no need to worry! There are many advantages to a rainy day wedding.  Look at this as a blessing in disguise. Growing up, I was always told rain was good luck. If you are having an outdoor ceremony the chances are that you are not having it in the winter so what goes fabulous in the summer and spring? Umbrellas! Have a decorative basket at the end of the aisle so your guests can pick one up as they make their way to their seat. This will be a great wedding favor and as you make your way down the wet aisle you will be blown away at the site of all the umbrellas open as you meet your prince charming, and you will have a special story to tell for years to come about your interesting walk down the aisle.

Cant’ find the perfect cake topper? Check out the one below. This interesting topper will be a great conversation starter for your guests and will show everyone how much of a fun couple you are!

Are you  not the kind of bride that wants to dance all night in heels and have your feet hurt so bad that on your honeymoon  you can’t do much of anything,what fun would that be? No worries! Rain boots will cause quite a stir as you dance the night away, and not to mention they look adorable!

The best part of having rain on your big day is fabulous pictures that you will have for years to come. Rainy days give off the best light for pictures and add a undeniable romantic factor that you could not re-create unless you are in a studio.

Hopefully the rain will stop for a minute so you can take a few pictures in front of a beautiful rainbow. Always remember, whether it’s a few raindrops or a monsoon, not to let anything get you down, this day is about the celebration of the love you and your groom share and the lifetime that will be shared together as one.

    Rain threatened our wedding a couple of months ago; fortunately, it showered before our ceremony and later on clouds gave way for some evening sun. 🙂
