Six Tips to Beat Weather-Related Problems That Could Wash Out Summer Weddings, from the Wedding Protector Plan

Share Article

June 1 marks the beginning of hurricane season and is also the peak of outdoor weddings. As the summer heats up, many different weather issues can dampen dream summer wedding plans.

The Wedding Protector Plan offers some tips that may help your wedding go smoothly despite mother nature. When planning an outdoor wedding, it is important to imagine what would happen if the wedding needs to be moved indoors. Even if your venue has an alternate plan of action in case of inclement weather, there are several things a bride and groom should review with vendors prior to the wedding day.

1. Does the venue have proper space to move the wedding indoors? Many times the indoor space available in case of inclement weather is much smaller than the outdoor space originally planned. This causes cramped conditions not envisioned by the bride.

2. Does the venue have generators in case of a power outage? If there are severe weather and power outages, generators will be hard to find quickly. Be sure the venue has a plan.

3. Is your wedding photographer prepared to shoot beautiful pictures indoors? Shooting pictures is much different than relying on the natural lighting outdoors. Be sure your outdoor photographer has the equipment and knowledge to shoot beautiful pictures indoors.

4. Can your caterer move indoors? If you are planning an outdoor barbecue, what options does the caterer have for preparing the menu?

5. Have you reviewed inclement weather policies with all of your vendors? Vendors may have return policies. They may also have up charges for last-minute changes. It is better to negotiate inclement weather options before signing the contract.

6. Have you considered wedding insurance? With the upcoming severe weather season, the Wedding Protector Plan® is urging couples to consider insurance options when the wedding planning begins. The no-deductible Wedding Protector Plan® is helping a growing number of couples protect their budget for as little as $160 by covering items such as lost deposits, unavoidable cancellation due to weather or military leave, lost or damaged photographs, gift breakage, host liability concerns, and more.
