Its mid-summer and all this while you’ve been slogging in the heat prepping for your big day. When the D-Day arrives what you see is dark gloomy clouds hovering in the skies and all of a sudden it begins to drizzle. You pinch yourself to check if you’re still dreaming, but it’s a live nightmare that’s taking place right in front of you. Your wedding day is about to becoming your wetting day. Oops, this little joke just couldn’t be helped.
Although it’s an old wives tale that rain on your wedding day is considered good luck and blessings from the Gods above, you ask a bride who has been dreaming of her perfect wedding day if she feels really lucky.
Although we cannot control the heavens above to stop those showers if they are part of the grand plans, what we can control is those showers of emotions that can bring our spirits down and make our mascara run, right brides?! Have a PLAN B, keep that smile on and buy waterproof mascara :)
And if it starts to pour on your big day, keep this mantra in your mind -
‘Hail or storm, come what may,
you will rock your wedding, the pro bride way!’
To help you do so just that, we share with you some fun and practical ideas on how to deal with rain on your wedding with bright eyes and a shiny smile!
