No bride wants it to rain on their wedding day, but if you’re having an outdoor wedding in Jacksonville, FL a rainstorm can ambush you out of nowhere.

One thing is for certain: wedding dresses and water don’t mix. You’ve already gone through the months-long process of choosing and perfecting your gown, now how can you keep it pristine?

We won’t let anyone rain on your parade (!). If you’re worried about rain on your big day, we have some expert tips to keep your dress dry and dazzling.

Get a Game Plan

You’ll feel more peace of mind with a contingency plan in place. Whether it’s you and your family handling the wedding details or you have a wedding planner on hand, get the gang together and discuss what happens in case of rain.

Put someone in charge of the planning and make sure everyone is on the same page before the big day.

Book a Venue With Indoor Space

Check with your wedding venue on whether they have an indoor area, such as a ballroom or

convention area as a backup up plan in case it starts drizzling during the ceremony. 

That way, your guests quickly run under shelter, your dress is preserved, and the festivities can continue without a hitch.

This is usually easy to book if you’re having a beach wedding at a resort or hotel. If you’re having a large wedding and are unsure about whether there is an indoor area, talk to your wedding planner to see what they recommend.
