How to plan / what to do if it rains on your wedding day?

Whether you are hoping for rain or dreading the idea of it raining on your wedding day, this is one element of the planning process you cannot control but can certainly prepare for, to ensure you have the most enjoyable day despite what Mother Nature has in store!

Tips and suggestions if you are concerned:

Have a plan B wet weather contingency

All venues will be able to support you with this by recommending areas of the venue that can be used as a wet weather contingency such as indoor spaces, or in some cases, may involve an outdoor structure/cover if there are limited indoor areas. Having a provision in place like this may mean having to put a little extra money aside (dependent on situation) so is something that should also be factored into the wedding budget where applicable.

Wet Weather Equipment

If you are set on having an outdoor ceremony or reception and are determined to have this despite what the weather may bring, (and the Registrar/Venue allows for it), then it may be worth thinking about other equipment to help with the wet weather; this could include a handful of umbrellas (some venues may provide these so worth checking), towels or extra clothing/correct shoes – if you are going to be swanning down the aisle in muddy grounds for example, make sure you have a suitable pair of footwear to do this in!

Don’t Panic – Suppliers will accommodate!

Many suppliers, especially when it comes to photographers and videographers will be used to these situations and will help identify the best places for lighting/filming in the event of poor weather. You can also ask them to arrange a visit with the venue prior to the day, if they do not know the venue well, so that they can recognise all potential spaces and areas indoors, for example, that could be used should the worst case scenario happen. It is important to remember however that they are professionals and will therefore know how to accommodate in such situations whilst ensuring you get the best photographs and filming possible.

Embrace it!

Even if the weather is not how you envisioned your wedding day going ahead, don’t let it spoil your day! Just remember all the preparation and time that has gone into the day itself which will still go ahead as planned, allowing you to have a specular celebration with all your loved ones regardless of what the weather brings!  And do not forget - at the end of the day, you will be finally marrying your partner, which is ultimately the whole point of the celebration! 😊

Whether you are planning to have a summer UK wedding or a fancy destination abroad, there is never any guarantee that the weather will be the way you want it to be (although we can certainly hope for it!) so this is one factor we, at Love Lydia Weddings & Events plan and prepare for as much as possible, by advising our couples of all options and provisions available to them early in the planning process, to ensure their dream wedding goes ahead seamlessly, regardless of what the weather brings!

Dear Love Lydia...

We were extremely fortunate to have engaged Lydia to plan our wedding last summer. She and her team were absolutely fantastic. It really made a huge difference having her assistance and support through all the planning. On the day of the wedding itself, she and her staff executed the day flawlessly. You really cannot go wrong with Lydia and to top it all, she’s an absolutely wonderful person.

Kyoko & Tosin

Lydia is amazing at what she does and we couldn't have asked for a better person to help us through the challenges of a 2020 wedding. She has helped and supported us through the whole postponement of it to next year and we have complete confidence in her - when Lydia says she is going to do something, we don't even have to worry anymore! She has great contacts in the industry which has made the whole process so much easier having a marquee wedding, where you tend to need more suppliers.

Fiona & Richard

We are so pleased with the wonderful way everything was organised and co-ordinated on the day. Words just aren’t enough to convey our thanks. You made our day just perfect

Melanie & Lewis

Jay and I would like to thank you for planning our daughter Sarah and son-in-law Paul’s wedding day. It really took the weight off of our shoulders, allowing us to truly enjoy the beautiful occasion. Your nothing-is-too-much attitude throughout the whole planning stage and on the day, made us feel totally at ease and we couldn’t believe how relaxed we all were on the day itself! This was especially so because your professional approach put us totally at ease from our very first meeting. Many thanks, you are well worth your weight in gold!

Susan & Jay

Thank you Lydia and your team for the most unforgettable day. It was everything we dreamt of and more. Even though we commissioned your services a little after the initial arrangements were made, we felt that your hands-on approach was very reassuring and made for a magical, stress-free day. Thank you again.

Debbie & Jo

We don’t know how we would have done it without you! Your professional, yet friendly approach, really put us at ease during the whole fourteen month process. Thank you so much for arranging our wedding over four days in Albania. Your patience was extremely appreciated and your resourcefulness was second to none. Our guests were completely blown away with the beautiful venue and styling and are still talking about it several months later. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and will never arrange another event without Love Lydia.

Antuela & George

I hired Lydia as my wedding coordinator for my wedding in Sardinia. I had to take her with me as there was no one better in my opinion. I have to say that Lydia has such a variety of skills and gives 110% effort into everything she does. Lydia was available to me day and night and nothing I asked for was too much trouble. Lydia treated my wedding like it was her own and wanted to make sure everything was as perfect as it could be for me. My family and friends have said it was the best wedding they had ever been too!

Christie & Danny

As the groom with an amazingly organised wife I was originally against using a wedding planner but I’m not ashamed to admit I was wrong. Lydia was absolutely amazing. Not only did she help get our dream venue on the day that we wanted, she was brilliant all throughout the whole process. Constantly in contact and not mention on the actual day of the wedding how amazingly organised and professional she was. Liaising between all parties involved and keeping everything running smoothly.

Francesa & Roberto

Just to say a belated thank you for all your kind help throughout our wedding preparations. Your attention to detail and flexibility helped us to create the most perfect day of our lives. We had an incredible day making so many treasured memories. It was quite exhausting to be honest (!) but you took a lot of pressure off us which was super. Thank you again, best wishes.

Amelia & Oliver

Thank you so much for all of your support & hard work on the lead up to our wedding day & on the day itself!

We really appreciated all of the advice you were able to offer & for the recommendations.

Thanks again!

Charlotte & Alex

Thank you to Lydia and team for helping ensure a perfect wedding day for my wife and I. We, of course, highly recommend Lydia and her team as great assets for your wedding planning and on day coordination needs. They are professional, caring, and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks again Love Lydia Weddings & Events.

Gessica & Chris

A HUGE Thank you for overseeing our wedding day, you made it all feel effortless, and I speak on behalf of MANY people when I say what an outstanding job you did. We had an incredible day - I never imagined it would be that good. I loved every minute! Much love

Siobhan & Mick

We had the most amazing day imaginable! Although initially wanting to plan the day ourselves, it soon became apparent that more meticulous and time-consuming planning was required. Thank goodness for Love Lydia! No attention to detail was spared, allowing us to enjoy our magical day to the fullest. Everyone was wonderful and made us feel very special.

Monica & John

Nothing was too much trouble, Lydia was always at hand to alleviate any worries and ensured that any last minute nerves were quickly set aside. Thank you so much. We would not hesitate to recommend you.

Amy & Tim

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for all that you did to help arrange the most perfect wedding reception for us. We wanted to create the quintessential English Country Summer Wedding in Devon and you did! You were so great to deal with all the way through and delivered everything you promised, from the dressing of the luxury marquee down to the finer details. Thank you for making the experience so easy and enjoyable and taking the stress out of organising our special day!
