Rain Planning 101

Posted by WeddingAces on Oct 02, 2009

How important is a rain plan – VERY IMPORTANT!

Some times we hate to say the “R” word, but we have no control over the weather when it comes to outdoor weddings. Don’t drive yourself crazy constantly checking the weather reports. With all of the heavy rains in Georgia, we were forced to call off a recent outdoor ceremony and move the nuptials inside a ballroom, which we did without a hitch.

Things you should do in case of rain:

  • View the back up space in advance. If the space doesn’t work, ask the venue for a second option.
  • Work with your vendors to make sure your outdoor vision can easily be transferred to an indoor location.
  • Lastly, talk to your photographer about possible rain day photo ops! (colorful umbrellas, rain boots, etc.)
