1. It will add to your wedding album
A rainy wedding day is usually a bride’s biggest fear, but it actually makes for unexpectedly beautiful photographs. Think cute shots huddled under umbrellas with your bridal party, or kissing your husband.



  1. 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.  

  1. 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.

  1. 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’)  

  1. 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!
