Rain, Rain Go Away!

Even if you are a big fan of irony, you probably don’t really want rain on your wedding day – a la Alanis Morissette. So make sure you’ve planned for some back ups if you’re risking weather for your wedding. If you have any part of your wedding day planned to be outside – please plan an “in case” back-up.

A lot of venues that have outdoor options often also have an indoor option. Make sure it’s in your contract and discussions that if weather is not acceptable for the outdoor portion of the wedding, that they are keeping an indoor option available for you. Don’t be afraid to ask! Think through all of the things that could happen at your venue and make sure that it is what you want for your location (weather options, multiple weddings in one night, private/public, etc.).

Another huge thing to remember in terms of weather is your photo location(s). Even if you have already booked an indoor wedding and reception – make sure that you and your photographer have enough photo locations available to you away from the elements. If you’re looking for some other options than the venue itself, consider the following…

  • Art galleries
  • Libraries
  • Hotels
  • Restaurants

With all of these types of locales – just give them a call ahead of time and tell them your scenario. Find a few spots near to your wedding location that have some fun, unique, fabulous areas/backdrops for photos. Talking with your photographer about where they’ve shot before or their opinion is a great idea. Most of these places would be glad to help out and may even want to use the photos by the photographer. Don’t be afraid to ask – having a back-up is very important!
