As much as I hate the continuous rain in Sydney at present, my heart goes out to those brides who have arranged a June wedding … with an outdoor wedding location!
Although you may have specific ideas on what you would like for your wedding ceremony, it is so important to have a Plan B in place. Be positive and hope for the best, but always be prepared for the worst too. Then you are covered for either event … and your day is stress free!
A good first option is your wedding reception venue. Check with them whether you are able to conduct a ceremony at the venue and what set up they may be able to create for you. You should be able to make the venue look great with decorations and make sure you visit the venue before the wedding to see what it will look like.
Another option is to find cover somewhere near your outdoor wedding location. This can work well if light showers or intermittent rain is forecast, as you might only need cover for a short period of time. If you are in a park there are often rotundas or picnic areas that can be used for wet weather shelter, or look to locate yourself somewhere out of the prevailing wind to get a little more cover from the elements.
Once you have a Plan B in place, wet weather will only ruin your wedding if you let it!
