COME PREPARED


1. UMBRELLAS - you don't need one for every member of your bridal party... on large golf umbrella per couple works great for those large group shots. For the bride(s) and groom(s) photos - opt for cute umbrellas like the clear bubble or something fun and colorful!

2. CHANGE OF SHOES - grab them galoshes and start puddle hopping! Or not... but at least have them with you so you don't dirty your beautiful wedding day shoes. You can always switch into your pretty shoes at the photo spot and use your rain boots to walk from location to location.

OUTSMART THE RAIN


3. TAKE COVER - consider some photo backup locations that offer shelter from the rain such as an awning / covered patio. Or of course you can choose an indoor location as a backup.

4. DIP OUT LATER - if your timeline allows, you and your photographer can dip out of your reception at a later time and hopefully catch some rain-free moments (plus you might catch an epic looking sky!).
