Rainy Day Wedding

It's drizzling outside in Minneapolis today which got me thinking about rainy day weddings. My own wedding reception was supposed to be outdoors at our family cabin but a week of rain prior made the roads too muddy to pass. We, of course, still had a fantastic wedding day but waking up to the rain that morning, we may have been the worlds grumpiest bride & groom! If you're having an out door wedding, you've probably got an "in case of rain" plan. Even if you're doing everything indoors, no one really wants rain on their wedding day. But before you break out your Alanis Morissette CD to wail away your misery, think about breaking out a cute umbrella or parasol for some outdoor photos that will have your singing in the rain like Gene Kelly!

Even the gloomiest of days can make for a beautiful photo if your smiles are shining like the sun.

Paper parasols are inexpensive, available in almost any color or pattern, & can be purchased in bulk. DIY it & hand paint one with a beautiful monogram or calligraphy. You can buy them here.

Of course the Creme de la Creme of fancy umbrellas come from Bella Umbrellas. Their pagoda style umbrellas are to die for & you can even rent out umbrellas for the whole wedding party. Image from Green Wedding Shoes

Even in the sunshine, a lace or paper parasol is a fabulous addition to a beach wedding.

But if the rain is really pouring down you can still kick of your satin slippers for a pair of cute rubber rain boots & go puddle jumping.
