Rain on wedding day might be your worst nightmare, but at this wedding venue in Athens, GA we’ve got everything ready to keep your day spectacular no matter the weather. A uniquely picturesque farmhouse encased by a wrap around porch, sitting atop acres of rolling pastures, awaits the bride who chooses this Southern gem.

Outdoor wedding venues often have an indoor option as well, so if you have a wedding on a rainy day there is always a beautiful alternative for your reception or ceremony. The surrounding buildings, horse barn, pastures, pecan grove, tree-lined lanes, vineyard, perennial flower borders and the formal, brick-enclosed courtyard garden, make a wonderful fall wedding backdrop and create multiple options for a bride to express herself.

Rain on your wedding day is known to be good luck so check out these five tips to keep rain from ruining your wedding day:

  1. Love your plan B

    What is the plan B for your venue? You want to love your rain plan, so it’s still the wedding of your dreams, rain or shine.

  2. Accessorize your photos with rain gear

    Some of the most magical wedding photos are adorned under the clear umbrellas surrounded by rain. Talk to your photographer beforehand to be prepared--lighting is actually better in the rain! Rain gear makes for the perfect props too.

  3. Prepare for touch ups

    Keep your hair and makeup team close by for touch-ups. If rain passes through it will be worth the extra couple dollars to have them around for photos after the ceremony.

  4. Plan for details

    Think about your guests in the rain. Parking can tend to get a bit messy, so consider having guests park on the hardest surfaces available. Heels in wet grass are not ideal, but matting or temporary boarded walkway would save a lot of falls.

  5. Weatherproof your dress

    Look for a wedding dress with an underskirt that can be pinned up! This will keep the top of your beautiful gown in perfect condition no matter the weather.
