For Brides: What To Do if it RAINS on Your Wedding Day

FILED IN: For Brides

One of a future bride’s biggest worries: What am I supposed to do if it RAINS on my wedding day?! The thought of this happening causes stress for a lot of brides. Having my own wedding this July (outdoors, no less!), this has definitely crossed my mind.

Today, I want to give you a few tips for helping a rainy wedding day still be the best day of your life and why rainy wedding days can actually be awesome! :)

  1. Overcast skies = perfect lighting. Sunlight, especially mid-day, is actually very harsh. Rainy days give that perfect, soft, natural lighting, no matter where you take your photos! This gives you perfect lighting + the ability to use a lot more locations. It also tends to make colors look more vibrant. :) Don’t get me wrong, I love golden, sunlit photos… but overcast has its advantages as well.
  2. Let your photographer worry about the photos. On your wedding, the only thing you should have to worry about is being the bride! :) Let your photographer take the lead on capturing the best photos of your wedding day.
  3. Be willing to go outside! Most of the time when it’s raining, it’s a lot of light sprinkles and not long, huge downpours… going outside is still definitely doable! I typically will find areas that have large trees to cover my couple & bridal party, or overhangs on the side of buildings. I also bring along cute, clear umbrellas to a wedding day (enough for an ENTIRE bridal party) that keep you almost totally dry, even when you’re not under anything! :) And they look adorable! All photos I’ve ever taken outside in the rain hardly even LOOK like it’s raining.
  4. Have a rain plan. Especially if you are having an outdoor wedding, this is very important! Be sure to communicate to your vendors what they should do if it rains on your wedding day. That way, if the situation arises, they will already know what to do and you won’t have to worry about a thing.
