Wet weather options for Wedding Ceremony

Take note ladies - How is this for smart thinking Danika and Tom hired a 6m x 9m marquee from Cape Marquees with silks and a large dance floor for their reception. Due to terrible weather conditions the dance floor ended up being used for their ceremony. What a fabulous back up plan..

But you're not having a marquee reception are you, you're holding yours on the beach and then in a venue? Well, here's a couple of other suggestions you could use just in case you're not able to have your marriage ceremony outdoors in the Southwest.

Firstly take a look around your reception venue e.g Does the venue have a large reception, hallway, boardroom or the dance floor inside? Have you considered utilising the following spaces or ideas?
* Undercover Gazebo on the grounds or on public land
* A shed
* A community hall - and when I say this look for the un-obvious like rural community halls e.g. Here is a list of halls from Yallingup to Busselton
* A cellar door
* A shop, restaurant or pub function room

As your wedding day is approaching, just keep a watch on the weather report if it looks like 50% chance of rain then I would book and pay the second option. Yes you may not need to use it but it is plan B. I always think if you have a plan B in place you a less likely to use it then if you don't have one.

Good luck..Nicole
