We can try to deny it, but the reality is that it’s difficult to predict the weather, and that is especially true in Springtime. So, planning a spring wedding takes a bit of proactive thinking and preventative measure to ensure that you’re getting the most of the weather- and not the other way around.

Here we go:
|Rain!||Make sure your rental company has a rain policy and choose venues with standby coverage if needed. Plus, makeup protector and umbrellas can be your saving grace.|
|Mud||Pack a stain remover for clothing and extra shoes just in case. If you must wear your heels through mud, heel protectors can be a game-changer.|
|BUGS!||If it’s outdoors, keep repellent abundant, ask your florist to keep it bug-friendly and keep scents like perfume to a minimal.|
|“It’s too Hot”||Keep your hairstyle versatile in case it needs to be pulled up and offer personal fans or even cold packs to guests.|
|“It’s too Cold”||Keep shawls on hand that you can distribute to wedding guests and consider a fire pit that works with your décor.|
