Wedding season has started and rain showers are upon us. Its that time of year. So, its your wedding day and now it has decided to pour buckets and you have planned this extravagant outdoor wedding of your dreams for over a year. What now?

We asked this very question to one of our real wedding featured brides…
We hear its good luck to rain on your wedding day. What did you think when it started to rain?
Oh wow – I think I was in shock! The storm that blew in really hadn’t been predicted, so we were all set up outside. No one could see me, but I was actually sitting right behind the barn in the car with my Dad and all the girls, watching the storm blow in, watching the tents and place cards go flying, and watching all our guests running through the mud up to the barn. We couldn’t stop laughing! I knew it was out of my hands and I just had to throw up my hands and take the ride! Luckily we had an AMAZING wedding coordinator (Amanda of At Last Event Planning) who handled it all in stride and kept things moving smoothly. In the end I think the rain truly made the day (our engagement day and our wedding day!) and will hopefully bring us lots of luck in the years to come!
What will be your plan B?
Is there enough room in an indoor space at your venue for your ceremony and all of your guests?
If they ceremony and reception are in the same location with an outdoor ceremony, can they flip the room from ceremony to reception easily?
Let us know in a comment if you had to activate your plan B or if you are stressed it could happen to you as well. If you can take one thing from this post, Elizabeth loved that it rained on her day…. she said, “the rain truly made the day”.
