Ask About Rain Locations

Since your wedding day is set in stone but the weather obviously isn’t, it’s a good idea to have a back-up plan for your portraits should the proverbial flood gates open on your special day. Most venues have great indoor spots for photos and most photographers will be very experienced in dealing with the unpredictability of weather on your wedding day. As long as you and your guests stay dry, you’re fine. 

Facetime or Video

If the weather is really terrible and you have some special family or friends who just can’t make it, see if any of your guests, bridal party, or photo/video team can Facetime them in to view your ceremony. Alternatively, make sure to book a great videographer so that all your important moments are captured for those who could not make it. 

Give Yourself Time

If you’ve chosen to brave the storm and carry on with your wedding as planned, make sure that you give yourself ample time to get where you’re going. It may be ideal to reserve a few rooms at a hotel near your wedding venue in NJ so that you don’t have a far commute. You should also give yourself wiggle room when it comes to getting prepared and transportation so that you don’t end up in an accident trying to get somewhere in a rush in poor weather. 


Weather is at the top of the list of things you have no control over on your wedding day. The best thing you can do is plan well in advance to make sure that you’re prepared. Most importantly, being prepared ensures that you, your fiance, and all your friends and family remain safe.
