and chances are, you probably checked the weather report before your wedding day, so the rain may not be a complete surprise…so plan ahead….an adorable pair of galoshes & a special umbrella can be an adorable addition to your wedding gown….and make for wonderful photographs….speaking of photographs…i love the grey feeling of a rainy day…its a wonderful time to photograph….i promise….so embrace the unexpected…dance in your rain boots…and kiss your husband in the rain.
