If you have an outdoor wedding, the last thing that you want is for it to rain on your parade. However, inclement weather is inevitable. While rain isn’t ideal, there are ways that you can prepare for it. Talking to the venue and buying certain items can ensure that your dream wedding goes smoothly. Keep reading for some tips on what to do if it rains on your wedding day.
Set up A Venue Contract
Depending on your contract, you can set up a back-up weather plan. Precautionary measures such as an indoor room, a covered outdoor area, or even a tent setup are things that this kind of contract includes. If you don’t have an agreement such as this setup and all you did was hope that it wouldn’t rain, make sure to call your venue coordinator to see what your options are. You may have to relocate to another area on-site.
If you planned on having your reception inside, there could be a chance that the entire wedding will have to move to the reception area. Some event planners are so smooth that it’ll only take an hour to make such a change while you and your guests enjoy cocktails in another temporary location. Another alternative (if you have time and room in your budget) is to rent a tent.
Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff
While rain seems like a big deal, it’s best not to stress and embrace it. There are so many ways to combat inclement weather, so you need not worry. Experts, such as Catering by Alan Weiss, would know how to handle this. What you can do if the weather brings cold temperatures is to make sure that there’s a lot of coffee, tea, and some heated lamps. Also, provide your guests with rain boots and umbrellas. Your photo album will look unique if your wedding party is wearing brightly colored rain boots.
