- It makes an unforgettable story
Rain on your day certainly makes for an excellent story! On a day that goes by too fast, stormy weather will be difficult to forget.
- Its super romantic, just like the movies
Consider the iconic rain scene between Noah and Allie in The Notebook. A rainy day creates a romantic setting and dreamy atmosphere, and is the perfect opportunity to cuddle closer and take a few risks with your wedding photographer.

- It can be considered good luck
In some cultures rain on your wedding day is considered good luck. For example, in the Hindu culture it’s said to predict a strong marriage as a wet knot is harder to untie (referring to marriage as ‘tying the knot’)
- You’ll have long-lasting and happy blooms
It’s no secret that flowers are sensitive and suffer in warmer conditions, but this will be one less worry if you have a wet weather wedding. Your blooms will be thriving!
