I would venture to guess that 99.9% of brides would prefer it not rain on their wedding day, even though some people will argue that it’s good luck. I recently stood up to a wedding back home, and we made it most of the way through the outdoor (covered) reception before the dark clouds moved in and the torrential rains started. By that point in sweltering summer evening, it was perfect. Nobody minded getting a little soggy as they dashed from one tent to the next, and no one wanted to leave during the downpour – which kept the party going well into the evening. Maybe I just miss the summer thunderstorms, we get plenty of rain in Hawaii but I’ve yet to witness thunder and lightening. Whatever the case, I am totally inspired by these rainy day images. Why let the weather ruin your day? I love how these couples embraced it with galoshes, umbrellas, and smiles on their faces.
Be sure to click the source links – most of these had too many great rainy day photos to choose from. You might also take a look at Bella Umbrella. They have a huge selection of umbrellas and parasols for rent – I had some as back up for our wedding party in case it rained. We didn’t end up using them, but they were lovely nonetheless… and their pagoda styles look so great in photos, rain or shine!
