Hi everyone! Oh my gosh, I can’t believe I hadn’t found this site until today since I’ve been wedding planning for 2 years now! haha. Well, it all comes down to this…. Our wedding is in September, and though it has been known to stay nice weather here (in BC) all through to the end of September, I am wondering if anyone has thought of solutions for an outdoor wedding should the worst happen (a little drizzle isn’t bad, and honestly I prefer cloud cover for photos… I’m talking wind and rain storm!)
Figured I should start thinking about a plan B before it’s too late!

victoria.pearson: Not knowing anything about you or your wedding, it’s hard to make a backup suggestion.
What is your wedding venue like? Do they have an indoor alternative?
Can you put up a tent? What else is available nearby?

Do you have a tent? Many companies will let you reserve one and then cancel if the weather looks ok a few days before (you will lose your deposit most likely). Consider a tent with flaps if necessary, indoor alternatives, and maybe those outdoor heaters if necessary.

I am also having an outdoor ceremony and worry about rain. I was thinking of buying a bunch of white umbrellas and then reselling them after my wedding. I found these ones for a decent price http://www.ckbproducts.com/white-wedding-umbrellas-p-3529.html

Oh having a bunch of umbrellas is a great idea!
So sorry, you’re absolutely right I should have given more information:
we are getting married on Vancouver Island at Merridale Cider. It does have an indoor fascility but not large enough to have the wedding inside unfortunately, I believe they have tents available but not ones with walls. The dinner is to be held outside as well, so we have blankets and heaters for when it gets cold. I hadn’t found white umbrella’s yet so FutureMrsW2015 those are great!
