Rainy weddings = gorgeous weddings

David & Betsy Bubbles!

I'm a pretty bride!!It's that time of year when all the outdoor wedding brides are FREAKING OUT over the idea of rain.

Believe me, I remember the panic: I spent the week leading up to my wedding reading the NOAA weather report every half hour, freaking out over impending precipitation.

But here's the thing: rainy weddings can be awesome, if you're prepared. In the case of cutie mcbriderson here, that means the most adorable polka dot umbrella evar! Look at that gorgeous diffused light. Look at those polkadots! Look at that green shrug! LOOK AT THAT SMILE!

So rainy wedding brides … fear not. Your day is going to be awesome!

Here are a few more of our favorite rainy shots…

  1. They can make for the most beautiful photos. Harsh sunlight can make for issues if you’re the photographer, particularly if the bride wants to be shot in the sun.

  2. For everyone asking about the green shrug, click the picture and read the comments to get more information from the bride herself.

  3. hi ladies! the green shrug was knit for me by my awesome sister!! it was really a mixture of patterns. it’s basically just a rectangle that we seamed up the ends to make sleeves. it’s one pattern for the main body and then a lace edging around the edges.

  4. I spotted your green polka-dot shoes in one of the photos! Absolutely adorable 🙂

  5. We got married a week and a half ago on a farm in Western PA in an outdoor ceremony. Right as I started walking down the hill to the pond where the ceremony was going to take place it started raining! Luckily it stopped long enough to exchange our vows but right as we made it into the barn (where the reception was) the sky opened up and it started pouring and thundering and lightning. The bonus? The photographer got some rad lightning shots and after it stopped we had a double rainbow! I can’t wait to get the photos back. It was much more memorable than if it was just sunny all day.

  6. Rent vintage umbrellas and parasols at:


    Bella Umbrella has a great selection, old fashioned white ones, lace ones, colors and patterns. They mail them to you and you mail them back. Or pick them up in person if you live in Seattle.

  7. You can also clear umbrellas (so people can still see at the ceremony!!) with a logo on them for about $10 each… that’s the first website I priced. I just googled for clear umbrella.

  8. Growing up in Seattle, I was so used to getting wet that I almost never bothered with an umbrella. But they’re obviously a must for outdoor weddings, and I haven’t seen one as cute as that in a long time!

    Small caveat, though: in my experience, clear umbrellas tend to rip much more easily because they’re made of a flimsier plastic material, instead of that nylon that most umbrellas seem to be fashioned from. Fine for a one-time event, but I wouldn’t expect it to last – though I’m sure you get what you pay for, like always.
