If there's one thing that gets brides panicky before their big day, it's less-than-stellar weather. And three years ago today I had my own very rainy LA wedding. I never dreamed our wedding would be poured on — like, cats and dogs poured on — especially considering it was sunny and beautiful in the weeks leading up to and following our one soggy day. But no matter how well you plan your big day, you can't control the weather; you just have to make the best of it! After all, besides my linen wedding dress and suede shoes being a bad idea, there was nothing a little rearranging and a lot of umbrellas couldn't fix.
We have some tips for keeping your guests warm and dry at a Fall or Winter wedding, but besides the practicalities, there is just something romantic about a rainy big day. Guests will tell you that rain on your wedding day is good luck, and while I don't know if that's actually true, the atmosphere and "we're just going to have to roll with this" attitude does make for some fun, beautiful photos. To prove my point, I'm sharing romantic rainy-day wedding pics that will have you singing "rain, rain, don't go away!"
