We are getting married in December and I want to plan ahead for the inevitable: bad weather. Not snowy weather which would look beautiful in pictures, but instead I’m talking about gray rainy muddy cold weather. We will be able to take pictures in the church and at the reception site, but could anyone think of any other good indoor locations for pictures in case the weather is nasty and we are stuck indoors. Do you think we could just stop by like a winery tasting room and take some pictures? Any ideas are welcome I just figure if I give my photographer a list of possible locations we can see what happens that day. Thanks!

You may have better luck posting on your local board for feedback from ladies who are fimiliar with indoor options in your area.

I second museums! And any old buildings with cool architectural features!

+1 for museums!
Do you have trendy/well decorated coffee shops? I knew a girl who had her photos done at the lobby of a gorgeous hotel and inside a restaurant (she asked permission prior to her wedding date).

I’d ask the winery for permission first, but that sunds gorgeous!

@jenibee9512 I’m in the same boat getting married in January and from browsing around for winter wedding photos these are some I’ve seen that I liked:
- Nice hotel lobby (I may do this as the hotel across the street is gorgeous, will ask permission in advance)
- Hotel bar area, saw some cool ones through the window or of the couple having an intimate coversation over a beverage
- Saw a cute one at a Starbucks, also through the window
If you’re going to be near a winery you could take a bunch of pics at their location, think unconventional like their wine cellar or storage type things too, picturing lots of barrels for a fun contrast to your wedding finery!
I would have a chat with your photographer too, they always come up with fabulous ideas!

I’d not leave it until teh day to wing it. Pick two spots and get permission and reserve them in advance just in case. the last thing you want to do is have to drive around town begging and wasting your photo time. I’d never let a client pick a location that we were just goingto “show up”. it makes it very uncomfortable for all involved if they refuse.
