One of the most common questions that brides ask me is “what do we do if it rains on my wedding day?” Well, New York is a wet state, and the Hudson Valley is no exception. Not to worry about it! For instance, most farmers are very familiar with rain and they plan for it. So we must do just that, be ready for anything that may happen, and just have fun anyway.
The wedding must go on, and people should have the best time of their lives. It’s important that your vendors are experienced, and helpful. Some of us professionals, come well prepared for any eventuality, and we’re willing to offer advice and alternatives–so you can have the wedding of your dreams.
If you want to be more proactive, you can prepare a list of things that you must have, and have a contingency plan. There are some measures that you can take that are very easy and fun to implement. For instance, you can shop for a stylish umbrella and boots; ask someone to stand-by in case you may need extra help; make sure you have enough time to go to a back-up place, and extra time for make-up and hair touch-ups; if using a tent, always make sure you have more than enough space under it, for guest to mingle; offer umbrellas and raincoats to your guest, if needed.
More importantly, whatever you do, you must do it long before the wedding Day. It’s imperative that you don’t let anything bother you on your most important day of your life. On your wedding day, go with the flow and have a good time.
Here are some photos taken on one such occasion, when the rain did not stop for a moment throughout the day. Please note this bride and groom had a good attitude and were determined on having a great time. Yes they had a blast, and they did everything they desired.
Did I mentioned the band? The Michael Dell Orchestra
is worth mentioning, as they kept the party fired up from start to finish with great entertainment. Beside playing well, they also played very long sets throughout the night without taking many breaks.
