What If It Rains On My Wedding Day? - Look At The Positives
It's only the day you've been planning since you first
discovered the romance of the prince and princess living happily
ever after in wedding bliss. Everything is confirmed and maybe even
paid for but there is no magical wand to wave when the clouds
accumulate the day of your wedding. Maybe it's an omen?
Hang on ... no need to get it all out of proportion! There are
some positives to come out of this even though you may not be aware
of it. A rainy wedding day could turn into the most romantic day of
your life. Just read on and find out why.
Why The Romance?
Have you ever lain in bed at night with your loved one and heard
the rain pelting down on your roof ... or fall against the window
softly in the morning? Rain invokes feelings of intimacy and
enchantment. Imagine your forthcoming wedding night and think of
the metaphorical possibilities that rain could symbolise. Rain can
be romantic and inspiring. Take the opportunity to view the rain as
being like the prelude to a new beginning. Your marriage is a new
beginning, therefore it is natures way of helping you start your
marriage with a clean new world.
Photographs - The Difference Between Stunning And
Rainy weather produces the right kind of atmosphere for
beautiful photos to take place. It creates a soft and misty
lighting and shimmering surfaces that create romantic and
captivating props to assist the visual memories that will last
forever. Soft misty lighting can produce an ethereal glow, rain
drops on car windows and beading water on cars, gates, fences and
the like can be used to produce photographs that are completely
stunning. In fact your photographer will love the opportunity to
show off their creativity and flair when they have a misty rainy
day to photograph. Brightly coloured umbrellas, bridesmaids
tip-toeing through puddles, your new husband cuddled into a picnic
blanket with you are just some of the many rainy day shots that you
can adapt to your already carefully laid photographic plans.
Remember to ask your photographer about black and white photography
as this will further enhance your artistic shots.
Fresher Flowers and Make Up
Maybe no one else worries about these things, but it means
everything to the bride. On a rainy day - your flowers will last
longer, the hot sun sees your precious bouquets shrivelling up
within hours, sometimes even before your wedding starts. Even an
overcast day sees your flowers remain fresher for longer. The same
for your make-up - your face will be easier to maintain without
sweat from overheating or the shine that can be evident in photos.
In fact, your skin tone will be improved under the misty, ethereal
glow of a rainy day.
So all is not doom and gloom if you turn out to have rainy day
nuptials. The trick is to remain calm and positive. And remember,
if the Bride and Groom are relaxed and happy, then the guests will
be relaxed and happy too. Providing you with the perfect
ingredients for a splendid wedding, come rain, hail or shine.
