Must the photos be taken outside? If not, why not move that to a nice little café, museum or perhaps a farm building!

 

As for your dress and hair you have to make sure that they aren’t affected. I would get going with purchasing wedding umbrellas for the entire bridal party. You could get white matching ones, or perhaps something cute and colourful! As for your train, can you pin it up for those distances you’ll have to walk?

 

I really do hope the forecast will change for your sake, but if it doesn’t – perhaps it will help a little if I say that rain on your wedding day is considered good luck where I come from. It means that all the tears you would otherwise have shed during your marriage has been done with that very day!

It’s not the end of the world. Plenty of people have had much worse on their wedding days. All you can do it be prepared. Go out and buy some big golf umbrellas for you and your bridal party, make sure to carry your dress and train when outside, and find some indoor locations for photos. It’ll all work out!

Don’t freak out. The weather man is very rarely right this far out from the weekend 🙂

This could be worse.

what you can do:

Umbrellas!

Make sure your bridesmaids (and anyone else who help) carry your dress/train when outside or inside if floor is muddy from other guests… This might be much, but maybe even roll out a carpet or something just before you enter…

Have you considered bringing a hair stylist and makeup artist along for the photos? Some people do both: they can do life saving last minute touch ups!

Consider yourself lucky that your ceremony isnt outside… mine will be and if it rains or storms i will have (no offense to your situation) bigger problems, even with a tent
