Singing in the Rain

Summer in Montreal has so far been a wet and dreary one. This could put a damper (ha!) on some wedding plans, such as outdoor ceremony and receptions-- but fear not! There are always beautiful and creative ways to keep the party going and still have the dream wedding.

Always be prepared! No matter what the forecasts say about your date, have umbrellas at the ready. Matching umbrellas for the couple, and colour-coordinated umbrellas for the bridal party and the groomsmen, could lead to some really lovely pictures. For outdoor ceremonies and receptions, renting a variety of umbrellas from a party or decor supplier is a practical yet fun touch. 

Location, location, location Researching where you'd like to shoot on your wedding day is a given, but have two lists: one for a sunny day, and one for a rainy day. This will save you time and help you avoid stress the day of, in the case of wet weather. Aside from the church and the reception hall, some ideas for indoor locations are older libraries, subway stations, cafes or restaurants with special decor.

Make it unique Rainy weather + Wedding day= dancing in the rain! Rain in photos can be anywhere from romantic and artistic, to adorable and hilarious. Matching rain boots, jumping over puddles, or even taking shelter; these can all make your wedding day memories all the more special.
