Most brides dread the idea of it raining on their wedding. After all, that means having to change things last minute, worry about wet guests or worse, ruining their dress. But a rainy wedding day isn’t all that bad. In fact, it could be an opportunity to really take your wedding to the next level. So, if you are worried about the rain ruining your wedding day, here are 10 reasons why you should be hoping it rains come the big day.
It Adds Unique Lighting
Wedding photographs are what you will use to cherish your wedding forever. And, there is no better lighting than a rainy day. If your wedding is outside, have your photographer use that natural light. It gives a creamy, calm texture to your wedding day that actually translates quite elegantly in photo.
Try Going Noir

Are you already doing a vintage wedding? Then a rainy day could be the way to pull it off even more. Rainy weather creates an automatic high-contrast noir-esque opportunity. Have your photographer create black and white photos of all of your guests, with the umbrellas included. It can create a truly unique look.
Singing in the Rain, Literally
Embrace the rain
Are you the type that would consider yourself a singing in the rain fan? If so, you can literally sing in the rain on your wedding day. Think of the photo opportunities. Embrace the rain, go outside, get your umbrella and skip with your new husband through the puddles.
Photo Opportunities Arise
Unique Photo Opportunities
There are some photo opportunities that you will never think of until the rain starts pouring down. For example, getting a picture of your image reflecting in a puddle. Perhaps your wedding rings dripping wet over a bouquet of flowers? There are so many unique photo opportunities that you will only get when it is raining. As long as you have a skilled photographer, you will be able to embrace and take advantage of those opportunities.
It’s a Reason to Snuggle
Get Closer in The Rain
If you and your groom are feeling a little stressed, the rain makes everyone want to be close and hold one another. It’s the perfect opportunity to snuggle up and just enjoy.
The Wind Helps

Usually if it rains, there is some sort of wind. That wind can create unique photos too. For example, the veil blowing gently out of the way or your dress picking up in the back to ad a little extra fluff.
Kissing in the Rain is Well, Sexy
Romantic Rainy Day Kiss
You’ve seen all of the romance movies where they kiss in the rain. You have probably even thought to yourself how much fun that would be. Well, when it rains on your wedding day, you too can kiss in the rain — just like in the movies. The only difference this time is you’ll catch it on film and be dressed to impress.
