I've read through your posts on how to keep warm, and how to keep cool at your wedding. But I felt there was one you are missing…
How to keep dry!
I'm having an outdoor wedding in the UK. Which means it could be anywhere from stupid-hot, to pretty chilly, fine and sunny, windy, or raining. And I won't have a clue which until about three days before the wedding!
Do you have any offbeat tips on how to keep dry?
Obviously, our first piece of advice is to book an indoor wedding venue. Barring any roof leaks, that should keep you protected from all the elements. But if you've already booked an outdoor venue, clearly that advice won't work.
Here are some ways to make sure to keep dry while outside on your possibly-rainy wedding day…
Rent or purchase a tent
Depending on your budget, your tents can be as simple or elaborate as possible. You could even buy a smaller tent for cheaper than it is to rent one, and then: Boom! You always have an awesome event tent in case of rain.
Umbrellas as accessories
We have an entire tag devoted to the awesomeness that is umbrellas. Of course, if you use an umbrella, you best make sure it's something fun like these guys:
Give umbrellas to your guests
Protect your feet
Protect your tops
Make sure you've added an awesome jacket, raincoat, or at the very least a wrap to your wedding outfit. You definitely want a cover-up if you're wearing white; that way your dress or your shirt won't get wet and see-through before (or during!) your ceremony. (…Unless you want to incorporate a wet t-shirt contest into your reception!)
We got umbrellas, tents, and clothing… what else do you suggest to keep dry on your rainy wedding day?
