No April Showers but are we heading for a wet summer?
Be prepared with the perfect accessory for your summer wedding

Wedding season is just around the corner and if you're anything like us, your home will be full of scrapbooks, notes and ideas!

But as we all know, planning a British wedding comes with the inevitable risk of bad weather - some days it's pouring and the next we're in our gardens sunbathing! So to ensure your wedding day isn't ruined by a sudden downpour, take a look at our tips below.

1. Remember that preparation is key!

When it comes to your big day, as much as you can hope and pray for glorious weather, you should make sure you're prepared for all conditions. You might want to think about making a plan with the photographer for indoor shots, taking extra footwear and a change of dress, or even having cotton towels ready for guests.

2. Embrace it

The best way to stop the weather from ruining your wedding is to make it a part of the day! From welly centrepieces to little umbrellas in drinks, the options are endless. Instead of handing out wine or champagne for the toast, why not offer guests hot chocolate, tea and coffee instead? Blankets also make lovely seat decorations and could be a nice keepsake or favour for guests to take home with them.

3. Purchase some wedding umbrellas

Another thing you could stock up on is wedding umbrellas! These can be used to shelter you from both the sun and rain, and are designed specifically for special occasions. The great thing is that they come in so many gorgeous designs that they won't ruin the look or theme you were going for.

Many brides and grooms opt to give their groomsmen and bridesmaids umbrellas as gifts as they are such great value. Another amazing thing that we love about them is that the majority can be shared between at least two people, which is perfect if the bride and groom want to cosy up to each other, or they want to share a special moment with members of their family.
