If you’re reading this, you’re probably curious as to what I have to say about how rain on your wedding day isn’t the worst thing. I’m a textbook optimist, glass half-full type of gal.  SO it only makes sense that I’m trying to think of all the positives as to why rain on your wedding is actually a good thing. 

1. Rainy days make for unique photos

Misty and soft-lit photos make your one-of-a-kind day look uniquely “you”! You and your photographer can get so creative with photos while also remaining true to traditional portraits. You can incorporate great props like clear umbrellas or cute bridal rain boots. Also, if you’re planning a wedding and rain is expected, ordering personalized umbrellas as wedding party gifts could be such a fun addition to the day!

2. Flowers last longer in the rain

Nothing seems worse than spending hundreds of dollars on your floral arrangements, only to arrive at your venue and see that the heat has wilted your floral beauties. Rain (and cooler temps) allows for your arrangements to last longer and not wilt in the heat – a TRUE benefit of a rainy wedding day.

3. Your guests (and you!) won’t overheat

Rain cools down a venue, it’s just a fact. You, your guests, and your wedding party won’t succumb to overheating and exhaustion from a hot and humid day. It’s one less thing to worry about!

4. Rain reduces airborne pollen and eliminates allergies

I suffer from seasonal allergies like no one’s business (so wedding season makes for a v sneezy time for me). Hot, sunny skies usually mean my allergies are kicked into high-gear. Usually during a rainy wedding day, my allergies are gone and I can finally breathe again. Your wedding party and guests will be thankful!

5. It means good luck!

I’m not a huge believer in superstitions, but I rememebr hearing that raining on a wedding day actually symbolizes good luck, and encourages fertility, prosperity, and a healthy marriage!


I know rainy days aren’t ideal for your once-in-a-lifetime day, but there are definitely positives. Keep thinking on the bright side – it’s still your day to celebrate your new marriage

WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.
