So you’ve decided to have an outdoor wedding. Congrats! Outdoor weddings can be breathtakingly beautiful. But… they can also be a hot mess (literally) if you’re not prepared for the elements. Mother Nature is unpredictable, which is why it’s important to have a Plan B (and C and D) in place in case your idyllic outdoor ceremony gets rained out, or if the heat-bomb hits on your big day.

Never fear, though! We’ve got you covered. Below is a list of ways to weatherproof your outdoor wedding so you can relax and enjoy your big day, come rain or shine.

  1. Have a Tent on Standby (or Four!)

Tents are an absolute must for any outdoor wedding. They provide shelter from both the sun and the rain, and they can also help keep your guests cool if it’s unexpectedly hot out. Make sure to have several tents on hand so you’re prepared for any eventuality – and so there’s plenty of room for everyone to stay dry and comfortable. 

  1. Invest in Some Clear Wedding Umbrellas 

For guests who don’t want to be confined to a tent, clear wedding umbrellas are a must. They’ll keep guests dry if it rains, and they’ll also provide some much-needed shade if it’s sunny out. Plus, they make for some great photos! (Just make sure to tell your photographer ahead of time that you’ll have umbrellas available so they can be sure to capture them in all their glory). It’s easy to shop for clear umbrellas online.

  1. Make Sure There’s Plenty of Shade Available 

In addition to umbrellas, try to create areas of shade for guests by draping fabric over poles or setting up large paper fans. This will help guests stay cool and comfortable, no matter what the temperature is like on your big day. 

Ready to get started?

Outdoor weddings are gorgeous, but they come with their own set of challenges, chief among them being weather-related concerns. By following the tips above, though, you can rest assured that you (and your guests) will be prepared for anything Mother Nature might throw your way on your big day. From tents and clear wedding umbrellas to providing adequate shade for guests to seek refuge should they need to, we hope these tips have given you some ideas for how to weatherproof your special day. Good luck!
