If you are from the UK, you are very aware how a lovely summers day can turn into what feels like a wet winters day. On the other hand, if you are from a beautiful distant land but still worry about the seasonal weather, here are some tips for you to consider when planning your wedding.
Try not to shy away from having your dream outdoor wedding or your beautiful scenic photographs just because of your weather worries but planning can be essential. Some venues offer marquees as a form of shelter, this could be worth the extra pennies to accommodate your guests more comfortably.
2) The little Extras
‘The little extras’, you’ve probably heard this far too much whilst planning your big day. It doesn’t have to be a chore, but blankets and cheap umbrellas can go a long way. If you are on a smaller budget or having an open-air wedding, you could prepare guests for non-perfect wedding weather with helpful suggestions in your invitation. Letting guests know in advance could save them from having icy toes.
Shoes can make or break an outfit but having a spare pair (weather appropriate) will prevent your wedding footwear getting damaged. How about some wedding wellies for you and your entourage? They can create a fun way to deal with the weather and even make for some interesting photos!
Discuss with your photographer any concerns you may have, prepare for all weathers. If the elements become too much to bear, you could arrange a reshoot at a later date to get your perfect wedding shot. You could incorporate props such as umbrellas or your stylish wellies to give yourself a laugh.
5) Enjoy it
It isn’t the end of the world. If you are prepared you won’t even think too much about it. Enjoy your day surrounded by your loved ones and maybe even play some weather appropriate songs to get your guests ‘singing in the rain’.
