Avoiding Family Drama At Your Wedding

Tips for a wedding day rain plan!

 

 Hi everyone! Today we're talking all about tips for rain plans and how to make sure to save your wedding day if it happens to rain. First and foremost, always plan for rain! That way, you can always be prepared no matter the circumstances. Instead of just hoping that it doesn't rain on your wedding day, act like it's going to and make sure that you are completely comfortable with the plan if it does. 

First, you want to make sure that your venue has a rain plan option. If they don't, that might not be the best venue to choose. It's possible to get a tent that can help cover your guests, but this is definitely going to be an added cost. There are some rental companies (here in Tennessee) that will allow you to do a deposit on a tent.

You're going to lose your deposit if you don't have the tent arrive, but you don't have to pay for the rest if you don't...
