If you’re planning a destination wedding in Hawaii, you might be wondering what to do if it rains on your big day. While rain is often considered good luck on your wedding day, it can certainly put a damper on things if you’re not prepared. Here are a few tips for what to do if it rains on your destination wedding day:

1. Don’t panic! It’s not the end of the world if it rains on your wedding day

Don’t let the fear of rain clouds sour your special day! All brides and grooms likely dream of a picture-perfect wedding with blue skies and puffy white clouds, but that doesn’t have to be the only way. On your big day, the most important thing is that you make beautiful memories with loved ones. A little bit of rain won’t stop those priceless moments—in fact, it can even add to them if you’re creative. For instance, arrive at your reception in a matching pair of umbrellas or even dance in the rain for some unforgettable photographs. Whatever course you choose, just don’t forget to enjoy one of life’s most precious moments!

2. Have a backup plan in place so you know where to go if it does rain

Rain can often be a surprise, but that doesn’t mean you have to feel wiped out of ideas if it catches you off guard. It’s important to always keep a backup plan so that, even if Mother Nature strikes with a shower, you can continue along with the day without worry or delay. Lots of popular options would be having tents (if it’s an outdoor wedding). Also, you can be prepared with umbrellas and raincoats for you and your guests ahead. Whether it’s a classic black umbrella, a superhero-themed one for your kid, or a stylish monogrammed coat for when you go out together, being prepared with rainwear makes all the difference. They’ll not only provide warmth and protection from the wet weather but will also add to the overall fun of the event – having a contingency plan will ensure a fun atmosphere and peace of mind that no matter what comes your way, activities won’t have to be canceled or postponed. So be prepared and take control by having a trusty backup plan!

3. Take advantage of the weather – use the rain to create some beautiful photos

Taking advantage of a rainy day can be creative and fun. Don’t let the grey skies bring you down, instead, use them to your advantage! Rainy days can add mood and texture to your photos that other weather won’t. Whether it be capturing you and your loved one running from the rain, or framing images with reflections in puddles, you’ll be so surprised by such interesting and unique shots.

Even though it may not seem like the best situation, there are ways to make the most of a wet wedding day. By being prepared and having a backup plan, you can still have an amazing time – rain or shine! And you will definitely end up with unique and beautiful photos as a result. Embrace the wet weather and enjoy your big day!
