How to Handle Rain on Your Wedding Day

No one wants it to happen, but rain on your wedding day is always a possibility. If you are having an outdoor wedding, you really need to make plans just in case this happens to you. Your gorgeous hairstyle, perfect makeup, and that exquisite wedding dress that you bought at our South Florida bridal boutique need to be kept dry. 

Angelus Bridal & Formals has a few ideas for you on how to keep the rain at bay and still enjoy this special day. 

Remain calm.   

Number one, a little, or even a lot, of rain does not have to spoil your wedding day. You may be a bit disappointed if everything was supposed to take place outside, but don't waste too much time being upset about it. Remember that old saying, "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain!

Actually, some cultures look at a rainy wedding as a sign of good luck. It symbolizes fertility and cleansing. Your entire day doesn't need to be ruined because it's wet outside. As long as you are married to the one that you love when it's all over, then your wedding was a success. 

Always have a plan.

If you thought about the possibility of rain during your wedding planning process, then you should have a few backup plans in place to keep everything running smoothly. Have an indoor spot reserved for a backup, or a tent rented to keep the weather off of all of your guests. Today you can rent tents that have elegant walls with windows, and they are more like a sheltered oasis than simply something to cover your head. Even if the rain stays away, a tent for an outdoor wedding is still a nice touch in case anyone wants to get out of the sun. 

Find adorable umbrellas that match your wedding colors or theme, and have enough for everyone in the wedding party. You may even want to have umbrellas available for all of the guests if you have a crowd that will brave a light rain. These will make great favors, and can be returned if they are not necessary. (Just don't remove the tags until you are sure you'll be using them.) 

Keep yourself dry.

Before the ceremony, take precautions to keep everyone's wedding fashions dry. Keep everything zipped up tight in garment bags until you arrive at your destination to get ready. Ladies, you will want to take extra care to keep long gowns up off of the ground. 

If you need to go outside for photos after the rain has stopped, lay down a tarp or something similar to walk on. Your photographer should be creative enough to keep it out of the pictures. 

Have fun with it!

Take this unfortunate turn of events and roll with it. Getting upset isn't going to make the rain stop, it will just ruin your day. Choose, instead, to make a few memories that wouldn't be possible without the rain. If you don't mind getting wet after the ceremony, get out in it and have your photographer take some amazing photos. Those matching umbrellas can really come in handy here. 

Remember to protect your wedding dress if you do decide to get out in the rain. Find out what will happen if the material gets wet, and keep any areas that may be ruined out of the water.

Don't let anything ruin your special day. A little bit of pre-planning and a positive attitude will assure that you can handle anything that comes your way. Angelus Bridal & Formals knows that the most important thing about any wedding is the fact that your are a "Mr. & Mrs." at the end of the day. As long as that happens, you can deal with all the rest.
