Rain has a bad reputation as a wedding day nightmare. And we’ll admit it – the Great British weather is not totally reliable! But rain shouldn't hold you back from a special wedding day. Here are some ideas to beat the wet weather!

Sunny Stationery

The sky may be grey, but your venue doesn't have to be dull! Make up for the clouds with some warm, colourful statement stationery. The great thing about bright decorations is that they'll stand out on a rainy day, but still look perfectly fitting if the  sun decides to come out.

Provide some blankets for your guests so they can stay cosy while listening to the lovely sound of the rain. This trend is also great for a bohemian wedding outdoors, where the party usually lasts until the cool evening air arrives.

Dancing to a live band is a great way to keep everyone entertained - and they'll soon forget about the cold weather! There are plenty of musicians and DJ's to suit any taste in music; focus on a genre you both love, or hire someone who can perform a mix of styles to keep everyone happy.
