You chose to have an outdoor wedding, you really have to just relax and not stress about the weather.

I am having an outdoor ceremony and indoor/semi outdoor (no AC) reception.

When we made the decision to choose this venue we knew what risks we were taking in terms of variability with weather (especially since the last three years that week has been very different here each year!). You can’t stress about it, don’t panic. You’re day will be yours rain or shine!

If you keep your wedding schedule/timing pretty tight people shouldn’t have time to be bored -regardless, it’s a wedding….boredom is for the ceremony only if it’s a really long church ceremony!!

Placement of the tent is also key.

It should be placed in an area where the ground slopes away from it, so if it rains the water drains away and does not soak the ground under the tent.

If that is not possible, I highly suggest you have someone dig a small trench around the tent to take the drainage away. Digging up a 4 inch wide lenghth of sod will be sufficient. Promise your mom and dad that you will help repair it after the wedding.

Also make sure you have a safe pathway from the house( if you are using the bathroom inside) to the tent-place stepping stones or patio squares etc so if the ground is all soggy guests can safely go to and fro.
