When planning a wedding in Oregon, especially in the Portland area, you run the risk of not having sunshine on your big day. There is nothing wrong with a little rain, we have gotten used it and enjoy the slower days (only us took about five years). When it comes to planning an event you need to think a little differently. Being prepared for unexpected weather is something to put on your list. If you are planning your event for spring or fall then be ready that a big dark cloud filled with water could spread droplets over your celebration. It’s no reason to put a stop to the festivities! Grab your rain gear and let’s celebrate!
Let’s start with a good ol’ pair of wellies. You have to protect those pretty feet while moving from one site to another site. Hunter is a brand that has lasting power. Their rain gear is built solid and will last a lifetime so you’ll be investing in something you can use again and again.
Add your something blue with these cute short gloss rain boots by Hunter. $125.00
If your colors are black and white, slip on these shiny black riding boots with gold accents. $195.00
If it’s going to be warm with a chance of rain then try a sandal you won’t have to worry about. These cute and stylish Limington Sandals will get many compliments. On sale $50.00
Yellow is all the rage for weddings. I used it at my spring wedding and loved how it added a pop of vibrance. If you ask your photographer having an umbrella can be a fun prop for your photos. Finding a clear one is even better since it won’t add dark shadows to your faces. This bubble umbrella is $48.00 from Hunter.
Go with a cute clear umbrella with a floral pattern from Totes for only $30.00.
If you feel the need to cover up your dress then slip on this cute white Kenneth Cole Reaction Coat. On Sale for $115.00 at Macy’s.
Whether it ends up raining all day (it is said to good luck in some cultures if it rains) or for a few hours have your rain supplies ready. Of course watch the weather report a few weeks out and as it gets closer to your date make adjustments. No matter what the weather, enjoy the time with your family and friends!
