Wedding Rain Plan: Don’t Let Mother Nature Ruin Your Wedding Day

Rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck. It signifies that you and your spouse will enjoy a long-lasting and loving marriage. After all, it’s nearly impossible to untie a wet knot. Others believe that a rainy wedding day symbolizes the last teardrops that will ever fall from a blushing bride’s eyes. These are both beautiful sentiments, but when you spend all of your energy planning a beautiful wedding for months and splurge on the perfect Dallas wedding venue, it can feel like anything but good luck when it starts raining on your special day. Luckily, there are a few things the Hidden Creek wedding coordinator and staff can do to ensure your wedding day goes off without a hitch– rain or shine

What’s Plan B if it Rains? 

Well, you might not need a Plan B if it rains at your Dallas wedding. You can wait up to 30 minutes before your wedding to decide if you want to move the wedding party indoors, but Hidden Creek has turf. That means that no matter how much it rains, once it stops we can help your wedding party avoid sopping conditions. When the rain lets up we can go out with leaf blowers and help clear away the water so you can proceed with the ceremony. Fortunately, this means none of your guest’s wedding day finery or your own white wedding dress won’t be sullied with mud. Also, if you expect it to rain and are deadset on an outdoor wedding you can prepare! Provide fun waterproof props like umbrellas, ponchos, and flip flops in your chosen wedding color palette and enjoy the unique experience. 

Move Your Wedding Inside Our Rustic Wedding Venue

Understandably, some couples won’t want to stand outside in the rain on their wedding day. So, Hidden Creek does offer an alternative. We can move your wedding inside if you choose just 30 minutes before the wedding. We have a beautiful ballroom inside of our chic, upscale barn. There, you proceed with the nuptials in front of the beautifully decorated barn doors or the grand staircase. If you’re worried about the logistics of moving your wedding indoors last minute, talk to our wedding coordinator about contingency plans. Although, we want to assure you that we have the facilities and staff to help you pivot and host a beautiful wedding regardless of the weather or if you’re in or outside.

Then, you can meet some of our trusted vendors, sample some of our catered goods, and still have the opportunity to ask the questions on your mind.

It’s long been a superstition that rain on your wedding day signifies bad luck. Or good luck, depending on which ancient tradition you consult. Regardless, a stormy wedding day calls for some special preparations. Since North Texas weather is especially fickle this time of year, your friends at Hidden Creek Events have come up with a list of things to do to make sure your wedding goes according to plan, rain or shine!

Track the Forecast.

This is one of the most important things you can to do be ready for whatever your big day holds. Keep an eye on the forecast for your venue’s location. Sign up for severe weather alerts, put a weather app on your phone’s home screen, and have a backup plan ready to deploy with little notice; forecasts are most accurate within 10 days of the big event.

Weatherproof Your Makeup and Hair.

Since seasonal storms usually bring wind and rain, you’ll need to take some extra time to protect your hair and makeup. Keep plenty of heavy-duty hairspray on hand for you and your bridesmaids, as well as bobby pins to keep updos secure. Use waterproof cosmetics to keep your makeup from running in photos and during the ceremony.

Wear All-Weather Footwear.

Rain equals mud, which doesn’t go well with high heels. Keep some low-heeled options on hand for your wedding party so you don’t sink into the soft earth with every step. Or choose a venue like Hidden Creek that has outdoor artificial turf that looks like natural grass.

Have Umbrellas on Hand.

A rainy day could actually give you a cute photo-op with your wedding party and guests all holding umbrellas in your wedding colors. You could make inexpensive umbrellas available for all your guests as favors. If you’d rather not preserve memories of the inclement weather, simply send a reminder that guests should bring their own umbrellas to be on the safe side.

Rent a Party Tent.

If your venue has the space, a party tent setup could keep everyone dry during the ceremony and reception. DFW has plenty of tent vendors to choose from. You can rent anything from a 10’x10’ canopy to an 80’ frame tent with window walls. Most vendors provide professional setup and extras like mood lighting, tables and chairs, and linens.

Have a Plan B.

Everyone needs a backup plan in case the weather doesn’t cooperate. If tents aren’t your thing, find a venue that can quickly bring an outdoor ceremony and reception indoors. Hidden Creek has a lovely outdoor ceremony spot, but we can bring the party into our barn reception area that sits just a few dozen feet away. This provides a convenient rain plan with minimal disruption.

Come and Tour Hidden Creek. From our photogenic grand staircase to our enchanted trees adorned with twinkle lights, Hidden Creek makes a lovely backdrop for your celebration. We have every amenity you need, including a full bridal suite with private bath, a groom’s suite, romantic uplighting, and connections to a full array of pre-approved wedding vendors and caterers to make your wedding truly memorable.
