Planning a wedding in Phoenix usually means avoiding the 100 plus degree days in the middle of summer, stashing sunscreen and aloe in guest welcome bags, or opting for a ceremony program that doubles as a fan.  With so much glorious sunshine, Arizona brides don't often need to worry about the chance of rain on their wedding day.  Having spent years planning weddings in Texas, I can truly appreciate what a blessing that is!  The weather there can turn on a dime - from blistering heat, to torrential downpours, to freak hail storms.  I learned to always have a plan in place should bad weather strike!  Read on for my top three tips!

1. Make A Rain Plan

With rain in the forecast, you'll want a plan in place to keep you and your guests as dry as possible!  If relocating your ceremony or reception indoors isn't an option, installing a tent is the next best thing.   From clear tops to side walls and flooring to water barrels - tent plans are complex and working with a wedding planner is the best way to ensure you select the right options for a seamless tent plan.  

Just a chance of light showers in the forecast?  Keep your guests dry with umbrellas!  Clear umbrellas like these pretties from Totes are an elegant touch and won't obscure anyone's view of your vows.

2. Dress For The Weather

High heels and wet grass are not a good mix!  Save your beautiful designer heels for showing off at the reception.   Stylish rain boots will keep you dry and steady as you walk down the aisle.

3. Embrace It! 

Did you know colors are more vibrant just after it rains?  Yes, really!  Hello, stunning wedding photos!   Don't let the weather put a damper on the spirit of your big day - embrace the rain and the unique beauty it brings.
