How to keep dry on a rainy wedding day



Now that we are into September (my favourite month of the year – and no not just because it’s someones birthday!) as much as a wedding in the UK could be bright sunshine and reasonably warm we could have downpours.  I love rain but, how can you make sure you keep dry on your wedding day?

Obviously, my first piece of advice is to book an indoor wedding venue. Barring any roof leaks, that should keep you protected from all the elements. But if you’ve already booked an outdoor venue, clearly that advice won’t work.

Here are some ways to make sure to keep dry while outside on your possibly-rainy wedding day…

Get a tent

Depending on your budget, your tents can be as simple or elaborate as possible. You could even buy a smaller tent for cheaper than it is to rent one, and then: Boom! You always have an awesome event tent in case of rain.

Umbrellas as accessories

Just look at the photo ops you can have with umbrellas

Protect your tops

Make sure you’ve added an awesome jacket, raincoat, or at the very least a wrap to your wedding outfit. You definitely want a cover-up if you’re wearing white; that way your dress or your shirt won’t get wet and see-through before (or during!) your ceremony. (…Unless you want to incorporate a wet t-shirt contest into your reception!)

Don’t forget to wear waterproof mascara and remember ………..

DON’T PANIC!!!!!!!

A bit of wet won’t dampen the spirits of your guests – just roll with the punches!


And if all else fails, try one of these…………………..
