Weatherproof your wedding
You cant control Mother Nature, but you can control your plans. Heres how to prepare for the worst (while hoping for the best!)
Come rain or shine
Despite the cliché trotted out by well-meaning maids and mums, a rainy wedding day can feel like anything but good luck especially when a deluge threatens all the al fresco touches youve spent the past year perfecting. Still, with some careful prep, grey skies (or worse) dont have to spell disaster. You have to trust that, no matter the weather, youll have an amazing day, insists Gemma Mitchell, events office manager at Ashdown Park Hotel, a 19th-century mansion set on 186 acres of Sussex countryside. Try not to worry about things you cant control and focus instead on those you can, like putting a strong contingency plan in place. These 10 rules will help you do just that.
