Rainy wedding day

Planning a beautiful summer wedding is so exciting for newly-engaged couples, however, what happens if a few unexpected showers are forecasted for your special day? Don't worry, we have a few rainy wedding day ideas to help you prepare for the unpredictable Great British weather.

 1. Makeup and Hair

Don’t fret if you’re worried about panda eyes making an appearance on your wedding day, especially when you can opt for a water-proof mascara! According to Glamour magazine, Chanel’s “inimitable waterproof” mascara has a smudge-proof formula which is rain-resistant. This particular mascara is available in many different colours too whilst adding length and curl to your lashes - perfect for all brides! Fortunately, relaxed flower crowns and beautiful messy buns are on trend right now and are perfect hairstyles for taming humidity frizz!

 2. Accessories

Keep your guests comfortable and dry with colourful umbrellas, which could even be used as wedding favours? Not only are they practical for those unexpected showers, they also add a fun twist to your wedding photos! If you’re concerned about your bridal party in the wet weather, bulk buying wellington boots could be an ideal investment too!

 3. Transport

If you’re worried about family and friends getting wet on their way from your ceremony to the reception venue, why not add a quirky mode of transport like one of our happy couples did. Katie & Elliot hired a charming light-blue campervan for their special day, not only was it practical, it added a pop of colour to photographs and tied in with their colour scheme.

4. Outdoor Shelter

Have you dreamt of lovely outdoor canapé and drinks reception? Don’t let a few showers stand in the way! West Country Marquees supply stylish shelter for you and your guests covering Worcestershire & Midlands as well as Herefordshire, South Wales and Bristol area. Not only can they provide chairs, tables and dancefloors, they can also provide lighting and heating, creating the perfect setting for your big day.
