Rain, Rain Go Away – Airwaves Vancouver & Victoria –
Cities like Vancouver and Victoria are subject to some really sketchy weather in the winter months. Also, this year so far has been pretty tame (I speak form a Vancouver perspective), you never know when the rain will roll in and ruin any outdoor plans. Rain can make things miserable in the southern portions of BC. With so much precipitation from the ocean, the weather can turn on you in a matter of minutes.
In terms of weddings and event planning in general, it can be a thorn in your side. Looking more into the wedding portion, as a couple about to be married, you find yourself glued to your TV’s weather forecast or some app on your cell phone. Wondering how much it could really change in a ten day forecast.
Stressing from an organizational aspect is pointless. Vendors signed a contract and are professionals. They will show up rain or shine and in most cases, they have dealt with this before. Its part of the job and setting a good reputation for their company. That should be in the back of your mind. As for the ceremony and your guests more specifically, use social media and technology like the email to advise guests to bring protection from the rain. Umbrellas can be found everywhere in Vancouver and Victoria. This can also give you the opportunity to buy matching umbrellas for the whole wedding party or take some truly unforgettable photographs. Giving your wedding a “cute” and more unique feeling!
Don’t dwell on the fact that you are not blessed with great weather. Embrace it and make the best of it. Be happy about everything else thats about to change in your life and how happy and rare this occasion is. Find ways to incorporate the bad weather into your big day and have fun with it!
