Looking to get married in Charleston SC ? I don’t blame you! Who wouldn’t want to get married in one of the top tourist cities in the world!? Charleston is known for its rich history, beautiful beaches, southern charm, and its people, however, as much as we hate to admit it, there is one downfall, the weather always seems to be unpredictable. One moment the sun is shining with a zero percent chance of rain and all is right with the world, and then you turn around to face some pretty ominous clouds coming your way. This can be rather tricky to plan around for a wedding, BUT! Don’t fret, we have some helpful tips if it rains on your wedding day! There’s truly no need to stress over having a little rain on your wedding day. Be decisive about where you will have your ceremony meaning if it’s outside, have it outside! Being a wedding planner in this beautiful city on the coast, I have learned over the years to be prepared for the unexpected so, with that being said, I promise that no one will melt! Also, trust that your vendors will know what to do, and breathe….you know I hear somewhere it’s good luck if it rains on your wedding day!
Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind:
(1) Always remember to have towels handy! If your ceremony is outside then your guests will need something to wipe down their chairs. Towels will also help prevent any injuries that can be caused by wet entryways.
(2) Grab some umbrellas! This should go without saying, but you’ve put so much time into the way you will look on your wedding day, make sure you’re protected! It would also be a nice touch to have a stash of umbrellas for your guests as well. Do you have ushers? Send them to greet your guests at their cars with umbrellas and walk them to their seats.
Trust me when I say this, y’all are not the only ones who dread the possibility of it raining on our wedding day! As much as we try to steer clear of the rain, we are always prepared for what could happen!
Happy Beginnings, Mike
