Afraid of a bit of rain on your wedding day? Nobody likes it to rain on their parade! As Scar in Disney movie the Lion King once sung, BE PREPARED!!! Ask your wedding party to bring their Hunters or wellies (English term for rainboots). Find classy, fun, or create your own monogrammed umbrella for your wedding parties gifts. Use the rain to your benefit! Incorporate the rain into your day-of wedding theme! Ask your photographer to take pictures with your wellies in a puddle. Ever played with the idea of ‘Trash the Dress’? We have too, but we’ll save that for another blog!

Another great benefit, picture perfect photos with no squinty eyes! Rainy days make for gorgeous photos, setting a romantic tone for your memories. Remember, don’t worry be happy or as we say here at Stable Craft Brewing at Hermitage Hill Farm, don’t worry be ‘hoppy’! Get married in the rain, sing in the rain, dance in the rain, celebrate in the rain, embrace the rain!!
