What do you do if it rains on your wedding day?

First and foremost, have a backup plan if your wedding is in an uncovered venue. Plan for umbrellas and/or ponchos to keep guests comfortable. In addition, the rain will drop the temperature. Have blankets ready to distribute and prepare warm beverages such as hot tea and cocoa.
