Great Britain’s well known for its inconsistent weather – promising perfect wedding sunshine one minute, then down pours the next.
But don’t let that deter you from organising the outdoor wedding of your dreams. Instead, be smart – beat the weather with one of these wedding-ready accessories.
1. We Heart this Umbrella
More practical than constantly checking the weather forecast is to simply prepare yourself for a spot of rain.
Simcha Central’s heart-shaped umbrella is a sweet way to fend off any showers, while looking adorable and without breaking the loved-up theme of the day.
2. Toasty Twinkle Toes
If you’re marrying anywhere in the UK, it’s likely to get a bit brisk at some point circa the eve. And who doesn’t want warm, blinged-out feet on their wedding day? It’ll be like slipping on a pair of slippers with a Cinderella feel.
Get your customised, Swarovski crystalled boots by Sparkle Your Shoes and step out in comfort and sparkle.
3. Embroidered Brolly
In the case of (somewhat rare) extreme sunshine, threatening to spoil your wedding pics by causing group squinting, why not try this brolly by Henna By Shibeel?
It’s a bit of a showstopper, with its embroidered patterns, and will work for sheilding the bride or her bridesmaids from sunshine *without* casting a huge shadow and interfering in your wedding shots.
An alternative option, in case you’re blessed with lots of sunshine on your big day, is this umbrella will help you nail a shabby-chic, boho or vintage bridal look.
This handmade umbrella by Crochet Tenderness will also score top marks in the ‘pretty keepsake’ category.
5. Waterproof Weddingwear
If you’re planning your own #WedFest or envisage traipsing through mud to get to your wedding venue, these ivory wellies by Ever Creatures have got your back.
The tie-side detail is particularly sweet.
6. Pretty Parasols
We’re not sure how practical this brolly by Pretty Rock Girl is, in terms of rain defense – but for sheltering you from the sun while working your outdoorsy-wedding/floral theme to the max? High scorer.
7. Rain, Rain, Go Away…
So this may not be one to include in your wedding photos, but it’s a definite wedding dress life-saver for outdoorsy brides.
Way more innovative than an umbrella, this design by Rainaway Bride is the ultimate in protecting your wedding look from the weather.
Puddle, mud and rain-proof your gown with this bridal cloak, which not only provides a hood and hands-free detail, but tucks the tail end of your dress away too, to stop it trailing and getting mucky. Genius!
8. A Monogrammed Momento
Could this be the first item you rock with your new initials on? These chic umbrellas by Sweet Southern will not distract too much from your overall look, being that they’re sheer – but they will add a touch of class via the bespoke monogram and can be used again and again in your new, married life.
