It’s crazy to think that in exactly one month today were going to be dancing away in celebration of our vowels… gosh I’m feeling rather stressed at the moment as for such a long time the wedding has been miles away and there is a ton of lil things that still need to be arranged i.e. wedding signs and string balls to be made.
It’s just occured to me that the possiblity of rain is 50/50 as over here in sri lanka march is rather wet and april is kinda soggy too. However to be able to get our loved ones here the easter holidays was the only choice….
The ceremony is on a secluded beach which mean if it rains we will be totally swamped. The reception is not such an issue as there is a main building that we can party the night away in, so im asking if any of you bees have experienced/planned for rainy weather on your day and what are good ways of keeping wet weather at the back of our minds when the day comes.
Any suggetions appreciated!

@daisy-chain: Could you not have the wedding in your reception area?
Or I am sure if this is a sponsored venue, they have other arrangements on the beach for rain — like tarps or canvas or something?

I guess it depends how hard it normally rains there.
If its just a light sprinkle, you could use umbrellas, and it would make for some super cute pictures. You could also use large stand umbrellas [like the ones for patio tables, although they are costly], to cover a more chairs at once.
Is there any way to you’d be able to pop up a tent? Since its just for the ceremony you shouldn’t need a gigantic tent, and you can hold it down with cement bricks [unless it gets totally windy].

Do you have a wedding planner or a contact at the reception venue? I would get in touch with them and develop a contingency plan in case of rain (like, if it is raining on the morning they can set up seating for a ceremony).
I planned everything inside for mine (getting married in Australian winter, in Melbourne where the weather is notoriously unpredictable) but my plan for photos/getting in and out of cars is just to bring a bucketload of umbrellas.
