What happens if it snows at your wedding? Did you know that in many cultures it's considered a sign of good luck? Unfortunately, it might mess with your wedding plans from traffic jams to power outages.
If you're getting married in an area that does historically snow on your wedding date. Here are some ways to prepare.
1. Talk to Your Venue and Vendors
Since they're professionals, they should have an action/ back up plan in case of unexpected snowfall. Listen to their strategies and make some of your own. For instance, you may want to stockpile candles.
It helps if your venue is close to a main road which will get plowed regularly.
2. Tell Your Guests
Warn your guests about inclement weather ahead of time. And it certainly doesn't hurt to call the night before and remind them to dress warmly. Be prepared for slightly lower attendance and remember to call those who don't show up to make sure they're okay.
Also, be understanding if your guests wish to leave early.
3. Time is of the Essence
In bad weather, you should always schedule extra time for travel. One way you can avoid delays on your end is to have your wedding in a hotel. Not only can you and your guests live there, but everything will be under one roof.
4. Don't Panic
Becoming upset at your wedding won't help solve any problems, so bookmark some meditation breathing exercises ahead of time.
