What about Rain on a Wedding Day?
Rain on a wedding day can be tricky! For outdoor wedding ceremonies, it can go either way. Even if the weather does clear for the ceremony, the ground may be too soggy. This situation will apply in many outdoor locations in Brisbane and the Bayside areas (at least!) in these days of unpredictable weather.
Do you have a Wet Weather Plan?
Do you have a wet weather backup plan for your outdoor wedding ceremony? This is essential for your wedding ceremony to go ahead, rain or shine! If the rain decides not to fall, and the ground is not too soggy, then the outdoors it is!
If it does rain, then the backup, wet weather plan swings into action.
Is the reception close by? Are arrangements in place for the wedding ceremony? With some adjustments, the ceremony will proceed as planned.
Of course, decisions need to be made no later than 6 hours before the ceremony. This allows family and friends to help in the setting up (either outdoors or indoors) for the start of the ceremony.
Where the wedding ceremony is conducted at a different venue and there is no time to change the information on the Presentation Marriage Certificate, I complete a spare form 15 and fill in all information by hand and with no time for beautiful writing.
Rainy Wedding Day
Of course, if it does rain on your wedding day then according to myth, “happy is the bride who has a rainy wedding day!” So rainy day weddings are good luck!
