Embrace it! This is your big day, we’re not letting the weather get in the way of your celebrations. It doesn’t normally rain for the whole day – I’ll be watching my weather app for dry patches – so be ready to run out if the skies clear, or grab some clear or white brollies & head outdoors regardless!

Chat to your venue ahead of time about what happens if it rains on the day, can they move the ceremony space or drinks reception indoors, or under cover? Is it possible to move some things around indoors to make space for groups shots? Have a wet weather plan ready to go so you don’t need to spend time on the day worrying.

Don’t stress over the weather forecast – it can become consuming and ruin the run up to the wedding. The forecast isn’t always accurate until the day, and even it does rain, hail or snow, it’ll all work out perfectly! ❄️
