Since this is a particularly busy time of year for many of you brides and grooms planning your incredible upcoming wedding, I thought that I can start passing along some very important information to consider while selecting your wedding date and location.

So, let’s get right to the point and one of the biggest concerns.  Rain.  Even though having a wedding in California is less concerning when it comes to this soggy version of Mother Nature, we still have to be prepared.   We comment to our brides and grooms all the time… It will work in your favor if you plan for rain even if the chances are slim.  Don’t you remember “Murphy’s Law? 

If you are still on the hunt for that perfect venue, be sure you ask questions  that include what the back up plans are for rain.  How many guests will you be able to have indoors if your ceremony is moved?  Can you bring in a tent?  What have they done in the past for rain situations?  What months or times of the year for your location should you be cautious of the seasonal drops?  Your wedding vendors are perfect resources for helping you plan for alternate weather conditions since they have the experience.  And they should have experience, if you know what I mean.

Now don’t be nervous or think rain will automatically cause problems for your wedding.  Some of our best events were filled with umbrellas and the biggest smiles ever. 

Rrain or even snow can add an element of uniqueness to your wedding photos and video as well.  We love to sugggest to our couples that having personally selected umbrellas or fun rubber boots can add a lot of personality to your images.  There are so many incredible colors and brilliant designs of umbrellas to select from.  We are even adding to our collection for variety and to help with the experience of the day.

Let us know if you have a perfect rain story or even if you have questions about weddings in the rain.  But most of all, don’t be shy about asking your vendors for help and ideas.   We want your day to be as perfect as planned.
