Rainy Day Weddings

Weather.  It's the one thing brides can't control on their wedding day that they would if they could.  Checking weather forecasts up until the last minute, many brides tend to worry about if the weather on their big day will be inclement or incredible.

The question stands:  is rain on your wedding day bad luck or good luck?  This is a question many superstitious brides ponder as they approach their wedding day.  Some believe wedding day rain be a sign of good fortune while others feel even the slight hint of rain could be a disaster.  

Regardless of the superstitious beliefs some may have about rain on your wedding day, rainy day weddings can offer great opportunities for beautiful wedding photographs that could not be accomplished under a bright and sunny sky.  Brides and grooms may be praying for rain on their special day!  

For the bride in tune with the weather forecast for the day, she may come prepared with appropriate footwear for photographs outside in the rain.  A fun photo can capture the forecast for the day with a simple yet beautiful shot of a bride in her rain boots, like the bride in the photograph below.

Nothing compliments a bride and groom than an umbrella on a rainy day.   Pulling close to one another under the umbrella as the groom shields his bride from the rain makes for a romantic photograph.  Sharing an umbrella on their wedding day may even be symbolic of the new phase of their relationship as the two become one.

The light and colors on overcast days are amazing and allow for a quality of photograph we wouldn't be able to achieve on a bright and clear day.

Bridal party photos don't have to be taken inside on rainy days.  Take a look at the photograph below.  With a few matching umbrellas, a stunning outdoor photo can be taken of the entire group.
