What to do if it rains on your wedding day

The idea of rain on your wedding day can sound like a nightmare, but what do you do if it’s a distinct possibility?

The short answer is: be prepared, trust us, relax, and enjoy the unexpected magic and beautiful things that happen if the skies open.

Buy some matching umbrellas for your bridal party – or some brightly coloured wellies. Embrace the opportunities for fun because there will be plenty.

Know what your plan B will be and chat it through with your wedding planner or venue organisers. At Uitsig, we have years of experience in making plan B’s look effortlessly like plan A’s. (It’s not often that a guest will complain about being escorted to the venue under an umbrella held by a good looking barman!)

Be flexible with timing – you never know when the sun might suddenly appear, making it an ideal time for you to pop out for a few quick photos.

Embrace it. If it rains, you’re likely to get some amazing, unique photos. Trust your photographer. Let go, and have fun. At the end of the day, you’re marrying the person you love, and, after watching so many couples make their vows, we can tell you without a doubt that that trumps any weather.
