Enjoy Your Wedding Whatever The Weather

It feels like weddings are all around at the moment and are you surprised? There’s nothing quite like a spring wedding here in the UK but with spring weather comes a level of uncertainty. While you can’t predict just what will happen on your big day, there are ways you can prepare for it and here at Marygreen Manor, we’ve become experts when it comes to planning for unexpected weather on your wedding day. Here are some of our top tips for keeping everyone warm, dry and most importantly focusing on the bride and not the pouring rain.

Talk to your venue – despite everyone’s good spirits and insistence that it “won’t rain”, we can’t emphasise enough just how important it is to talk to your venue i.e. Marygreen Manor. You want to know if they offer a plan B should the heavens open and you find yourself in the middle of the biggest storm to ever hit Brentwood. From the ceremony to the wedding photos, you need to ensure that there are options to cater for such events. Thankfully, here at Marygreen Manor, we have halls and suites to cater to every wedding party size should the weather stop you from enjoying the spring sunshine.

Secure a tent or hall indoors – while it’s all very well and good knowing a venue has a hall or suite available should the weather turn disastrous, simply knowing this information isn’t enough. Take the smart step and secure a tent or hall indoors should the weather turn nasty. This not only allows your day to continue without pause but also prevents any stress or worry on the day…something any bride and groom could do without.

Plan ahead – it’s always best to plan ahead when it comes to weddings instead of leaving it until the week before your wedding to decide what you’ll do should the weather turn nasty. Consider everything, from the placing of the cake to the flowers, wedding music and more. Whether it’s an extra layer to go with your bridal gown, a few logs beside the fire should the wind pick up or even the necessary ingredients to put together a batch of hot chocolate, it pays to plan ahead. It may involve spending a few extra pounds but we guarantee it’ll be worth every penny if you wake up on the morning of your wedding to bad weather.

Keep everyone in the loop – if you really have your heart set on a wedding out in the open space, such as our landscaped gardens for instance, then we suggest you let your guests know what they’re getting involved in. Even if you decide to leave just a small note on your wedding invitation, or even a popular addition to all wedding invites now known as the “rain card” that simply suggests your guests prepare for an outdoor wedding. This reminds them to dress appropriately should the weather take a turn for the worse. The more information you give your guests, the better they’ll be able to prepare and the happier they’ll be. This makes for far less stress on the day and anything that helps towards smooth sailing is good in our books.

Last but not least…embrace it – as any resident of the UK knows, you can’t control the weather so if you can’t beat them, join them and embrace a little rain. Think about the most romantic scenes in your favourite romcoms and remind yourself of the rain that often fills them. At the very least, you’ll have some of the most memorable wedding photography moments to look forward to.
