Weddings can be very stressful. Any chance you get to make your day less stressful, take it.
Sometimes it’s unavoidable: you fall in love with a venue and you have to have it no matter what. I’m not saying to give up on your dream venue if they don’t have a rain plan, definitely think it through and come up with a solution before you book the venue.
If your reception is going to be inside, you can always modify the layout to make room for an altar and a few small rows of chairs for close family, and the guests can still sit at their tables.
A tent can also be a great addition if the venue doesn’t already have a rain plan.
You don’t want to get to the week of your wedding just to be refreshing your weather app every 5 minutes to see if the chance of rain is changing. It’s not worth the stress.
And, if it does happen to rain on your wedding day…I might just take you outside for a few memorable moments.
