Have a concise Plan B in place
Every party planner knows that it’s important to have a backup plan. When you’re planning an outdoor event, always have a contingency plan in case the weather doesn’t cooperate. That might mean renting a tent or reserving indoor space at the venue where your event is being held.
Communicate with your guests
As the date of your event approaches, keep an eye on the forecast and be prepared to send out updates to your guests. If there is a chance of bad weather, let them know in advance so they can dress appropriately or make other arrangements as necessary. And if you do have to make last-minute changes to the location or time of your event, use mass communication tools like email or text messages to get the word out quickly.
Just because the weather isn’t ideal, doesn’t mean your event can’t be fun. Get creative and think outside the box when it comes to devising activities that can be done indoors or that will work well in the rain. For example, if you’re having a barbecue, why not set up a picnic area indoors? You can also provide umbrellas for guests to use as they move between indoor and outdoor spaces, or set up umbrellas at each outdoor table and over the altar – umbrellas can serve as a great accessory to making your wedding photos more vibrant and memorable.
