Why should I have a wet weather back up plan for my outdoor wedding?

Well this past weekend was one of those wedding weekends you wish upon no couples tying the knot. Luckily for my lovely couple they got their fairytale ending. However others have not been so lucky. Mother Nature is in full control of her own moods, and these are something we cannot know or predict.

So this leads me to what I wanted to write to you about....you MUST have a wet weather back up plan. Plan this far enough out so you aren't rushing around last minute.

1. Talk to your ceremony stylist as they can give you advice or contact suppliers to help get this plan in place.

2. Talk to your reception venue to see if they can assist you should the unthinkable occur. Often they will have an area that they can clear for you to have a little cosy ceremony.

3. Locate some covered areas outdoors that can also work for you, there are the odd shelters in more public places however this is better than no shelter at all.

4. Put on standby a wedding marquee to keep you dry should the bad weather look imminent.

Don't leave it to chance, and then work yourself up into an unnecessary stressful state right before one of the most important days of your life.
