1. Have Umbrellas Ready
Rather than having mass chaos in the wake of water falling from the sky, provide your bridal party and guests with color coordinated umbrellas. Not only are you thinking of their comfort in the chance of a rain shower, but you are also providing your wedding photog with a striking setting for snapping shots.We have to trunks full of custom Granite Ridge umbrella's waiting for your guests, so need not worry if you don't bring your own!
2. Wellies, Hunters, or Bogs
3. Towel Time
Towels are a lifesaver in any wet conditions, especially a rain shower. Have attendants pass out baskets of color coordinated towels to guests as they enter the reception hall. Everyone will appreciate your thoughtfulness, and hopefully you can prevent any sniffles from passing through the crowd due to wet heads.
4. Hey, hay, hey!
A quick fix for an outdoor wedding in Maine is to utilize hay bales as part of the décor. Not only are you providing a rustic touch to your scene, but the hay bales will absorb standing water and rain drops to prevent mud puddles and small ponds from forming.
5. Get Married In the Barn
If the rains truly become a flash flood, then by all means bale out of the outdoor ceremony. After all, you want to make it to your first anniversary, not be washed away before the wedding nuptials are carried out. Opt for our Maine barn wedding venue, which makes not only a pristine backdrop for your event, but a safe and cozy hideaway for an alternative wedding ceremony option.
