ugh. rain. just ugh. its your worst nightmare if you are planning a wedding … especially if you’re planning an outside ceremony or reception. and heaven forbid that Mother Nature be that cruel on the most important day of your life. if you have a good planner or coordinator, then you have your plan B ready to go, but let’s be honest, plan B is not plan A and not how you’ve envisioned your dream day to go down.
at least that’s how we’ve built it up in our minds.
so … let’s change that perspective. here are few reasons to not dread the rain, but rather embrace it and still have the most amazing day!
1. IT’S GOOD LUCK – a lot of other cultures view rain on your wedding day as good luck as it symbolizes cleansing, and new beginnings. think of the rain as Mother Nature giving you the ultimate blessing and enjoy it.
2. GORGEOUS PHOTOS – the way the flash captures the light reflecting off those little beads of water, gardens become vibrant and lush … plus there might be a rainbow. and photos with umbrellas and rain boots can be super cute.
3. RAIN IS ROMANTIC – grab your love, a blanket, and get cozy together! relax under the gazebo or awning and curl up, while you enjoy the sound of the rain as it comes down and bask in the fact that you just said i do to the love your life and your surrounded by the people you love the most.
4. IT MAKES ONE HECK OF A STORY – if it does end up raining, there is definitely going to be a story to tell. what kind of story it becomes, is totally up to you. embrace it, and you’ll still have that perfect story. so capture some rain in a jar and embrace it!
and remember why you’re getting married. it’s not because the sun is out, and its a pretty day. it’s because you’ve found your match, you’re ready to spend the rest of your life with them, and you want your friends and family to be part of it! don’t let the rain ruin it! tell yourself right now that rain on your wedding day is not the worst thing, and you will no longer fear it!
