A Luxury Wedding Planners Guide To: Weather on your Wedding Day


It doesn’t matter how much research you put into working out the driest day of the year. One thing you need to understand from day one, is that you cannot control the weather on your wedding day. Even the best wedding planner in the world cannot guarantee you beautiful sunshine. We currently promise just the right temperature with just a slight breeze on the day of your wedding. Unfortunately money cannot pay for this service, however you can ensure you have a back up plan just in case.

The first thing to do is to ensure you speak to your wedding venue and ensure any outdoor elements of the wedding have a back up option. Almost every venue will have an indoor space for you to use just in case. Whether it be the wedding ceremony, drinks reception or the after party. It’s worth bearing these option in mind when designing your big day and choosing the colour scheme and layouts. 

Make sure you speak to the photographer and have wet weather location options ready just in case. The last thing you want to do is plan every single portrait to be taken outside for the heavens to open and spoil your dream pictures. If your heart is set on outdoor portraits, then its always a possibility that you may have a dry spell. Allow a little bit of flexibility within your schedule to disappear for 30 minutes to get a few shots.

If you’ve made the decision to choose a venue with no back up options, then make sure the rain cannot spoil your day. Be prepared with the option of marquees, umbrellas, wellies. Make a feature with different colours and you can create some beautiful and quirky memories!

Leading up to the wedding, ensure you keep an eye on the forecast for the weather on your wedding day. Being prepared means no unwanted suprises on the big day.

And just remember, rain on your wedding day is a sign of good luck.
