With all of the rain, we have been getting here in California it is hard not to think about rainy wedding days. I know rain on your wedding day can seem like a bad omen or at least a huge stressor, but I am here to show you that it can also be a blessing! There are a lot of things that need to get done to prepare for rain on your wedding day. One thing you should definitely consider is how to get lovely rainy wedding day photos that you will treasure forever:
- Don’t be afraid to go outside
- Don’t be afraid of getting a little bit of rain on your wedding dress
- Do properly accessorize with adorable rain boots and colorful umbrellas
- Do involve your bridal party in fun rainy day photos
- Do be sure to lift your wedding dress up as you walk through the rain, a few rain drops on your dress is fine (but you won’t want to pay for the cleaning bills that will incur if you get it muddy)!
- Do take fun photos of you and your groom through rainy windows
- Do use rain reflections for fun photos
- Don’t let the rain ruin your day!

Wedding favors have evolved over the years, becoming more of an opportunity for the bride and groom to showcase their personalities to their guests in a unique, memorable way. Rather than simply setting out candies or mints, couples are taking favors a step further so their guests have a token of appreciation to take home from the wedding.
If you’re getting married during the cold-weather months, particularly around the end of the year, a New Year’s Eve wedding favor is a guaranteed opportunity to incorporate the season and holiday into your big day. Not sure where to start? Use the following favor ideas as inspiration for favors that your guests won’t soon forget.
