Whilst you can plan many aspects of your wedding, one element you can’t predict is the weather. Every bride asks the same question; what if it rains on my wedding day?
Us Brits are weather obsessed and we dream of a sunny wedding day. But you can’t control the weather and actually it really doesn’t matter, if you plan ahead. Then you’ll be able to cope with rain, snow and wind to mean your day is memorable for all the right reasons.

Windy wedding moments

Just think if you choose a design that has stunning detailing or is a family heirloom; you’ll have the most perfect images of your veil to keep forever too.
But what you don’t want is flying hairstyles, hats, head dresses or skirts! So have some extra hair pins fitted and bring some spares just in case. If you’re a wedding guest with a floaty fabric skirt, it might be wise to put on your best undies, stockings and a petticoat. All of these could help spare any blushes!

Sun is what every bride hopes for…isn’t it?

But if the sun is out, get your shades on for an oh so cool bridal vibe. You could get matching shades in a colour to match your wedding theme for all your guests so you’ll have the coolest group picture to remember! (Image via Rock n Roll Bride).

What if it rains on my wedding day?

Snowy wedding photos anyone?

I totally get that snow is a logistical challenge. If heavy snow is forecast then think about travelling to your venue the day before, if  possible. Or if it is some distance away, at least try and get closer. Contact your venue and ask what access is like – you never know, they might have less snow than where you are! Getting through snowy roads is all about knowing what you need to deal with and making plans accordingly.
But again, loved up snowy pictures of your wedding day will look stunning! Just also think about a warm cape or small jacket to wear with your dress. Then all you need to do it cosy up together – just like this couple captured by Sorensen Foto!
