Rainy Wedding Ideas

I know, I know - Rain on your wedding day would be a disaster, right? Personally I love all that winter has to bring, including a storm (but I realise I’m unique in this!). With all the wet weather we’re having recently, I’ve put together some ideas for those planning for rain on their big day.

Umbrellas (obvs)

I mean, its the go-to first choice to protect you from the rain. But you can also make it a big part of the aesthetic of the day. You could choose a rainbow, your chosen colours, or transparent ones might be best if your ceremony is outdoors, so everyone can see what’s going on! And if it doesn’t rain? Who cares - There’s a beautiful canopy of brollies. They could be given out as favours or rented for the day from somewhere like Brolliesgalore!


For you, for the decorations, for the signage. If you’re getting married in the UK it might just rain, so make it your theme!

Raincoats and jackets

Style it up and show the rain who’s boss by embracing the waterproofs!

Pre-hot-booze rain dance (for the brave)

Yes, it’s a thing. Ok, so I just made it up, but hear me out. Get your guests to run out in the rain with you. The photographer can get some amazing stormy shots, puddle splashes and screams, and then you can all come back in to a table of blankets, mirrors for hair-and-make-up-checks, Bailey’s hot chocs, Tuthilltown Toddys or even mulled wine. Throw in some cookies, and what the hell, some shots. It’s a party!
