It’s your special day so people won’t mind a bit of rain but do give them some warning if possible. If there’s a high chance of it bucketing down, let your guest know so they can dress accordingly. The last thing you want is all your friends and family drowned to the bone with no umbrellas or jackets to be seen.

Relax and embrace it

Try to relax and not get worked up. This may not sound like great advice but a wedding day is stressful enough without having the added worry of the weather to think about. Just take a few deep breaths, remind yourself that there was always a possibility of rain and embrace it. Try to imagine the raindrops being the perfect backdrop to your special day rather than something that spoils it. It wouldn’t be Ireland without a bit of rain, right?

Have a Plan B

If your guests are getting soaked and you can’t stand another second of having an umbrella hovering over your head for the entire day then perhaps it is time to head inside. Try to ensure that your venue has an indoor area that you would be happy to use as the backdrop for your photographs and videography. After all, it is one thing to embrace the rain, but it’s another thing entirely to be getting soaked to the skin and rained on for the entirety of your big day. If there is an indoor alternative at the venue then do ensure it is ready for use if necessary.

It’s all about the bride and groom
