Every single couple tracks the weather a least a week before their wedding day in the hopes of the sun shining. Unfortunately, Mother Nature can have her own agenda on any given day and sometimes brings the unspeakable “r” word.

It can be frustrating and disappointing to some to experience rain on their wedding day, especially if it is outdoors under a tent or el fresco, but we have some reasons (there are many more!) below to help see why a rainy wedding day is not the worst that can happen!

1 – Your wedding day photos are even more beautiful on a cloudy/rainy day, then on a sunny day. 

2 – Fun props can be used, like clear umbrellas and rain boots!

3 – Sometimes, you can even get a rainbow once the rain stops!

4 – A lot of brides and grooms do not like hearing that “rain brings good luck”, but in some cultures really believe in this. Rain on your wedding day can symbolize fertility and cleansing.

5 – Your guests may be a little wet during parts of the day, but at least they will not be overheated by a summer sun, if you choose to get married during those months.

Happy Wedding Planning!
