You put in months of thought and planning for your wedding. Have you thought about how to prepare for rain on your wedding day?
Checklists, spreadsheets, and timelines detail every minute of your big weekend. But all the organization skills in the world can’t control one thing: the weather! Midwest weddings will always run into the challenge of unpredictable forecasts. The good news? With the right mindset and tools, you CAN prepare for rain on your wedding day.
Perfectionists understand: when you invest hours into an event, you want every detail to go according to plan! This is one area where you must give yourself grace and have an open hand. You cannot control the weather. During your months of planning, remind yourself of this often. If it rains on your wedding day, you’ll be able to handle the circumstances much better if you’ve mentally set the right expectations.
What does this look like?
Once you have your mindset in the right place, you can make a rain plan.
Start by hiring vendors you trust to be on top of any situation.
Even if it rains, it usually doesn’t last the entire day. Leave wiggle room in your timeline so you can sneak out for sunset portraits if it rained earlier in the day.
When you have a healthy mindset, hire the right vendors, and make a good plan, you will prepare for rain on your wedding day with ease! And if it does rain? Know that you did your best, and your day will still end with you married to the one you love.
