Tips for a wedding day rain plan!

 

 

Hi everyone! Today we're talking all about tips for rain plans and how to make sure to save your wedding day if it happens to rain. First and foremost, always plan for rain! That way, you can always be prepared no matter the circumstances.

First, you want to make sure that your venue has a rain plan option. If they don't, that might not be the best venue to choose.
