Summer is a great season in which to get married, but with that comes the possibility and, let’s face it, large probability that it might rain on your wedding parade – no matter where you are.
Here are some more golden tips to keep in mind just in case the heavens open up when you are about to say your “I Dos”.
If the weather forecast predicts high odds of a quick shower or heavy downpour on the Big Day, communicate this to your guests. This will allow them the include extra travel time to the venue, plan their outfits and be prepared for a slightly altered order of events.
Have plenty umbrellas on hand for when your guests arrive. The majority of wedding venues have parking facilities close to the actual reception venue, so arrange for ushers with umbrellas to accompany guests inside. the same goes for the chapel. No users on hand – hello groomsmen! They have relatively few tasks compared to the bridesmaids and already look handsome. You can also rope in brothers, cousins and good friends.
Having the right sound, lighting and technical production is crucial to the success of any event. You can rest assured that we at UP A TONE EVENTS know this. We’ll make sure that everything is of the highest quality and functions without a glitch.
Have either your make-up and hair stylists or a relative with a deft hand at the ready to fix any rain-affected issues. You might want to adapt your hairdo to the new, slightly more damp conditions, so discuss a Plan B with your hair stylist in advance.
Open-air weddings, especially the ceremony itself, is a massive trend that keeps gaining in popularity. Make sure you have a slip-safe approach to the open-air chapel – think gravel or a roll-out carpet – and get a tent; a stretch tent is quick to set up, looks pretty and will prevent the festivities from being a washout.

As long as you follow these golden rules, you’ll be fine. Roll with it and focus on enjoying your wedding with your loved ones.
