Especially when it comes to the unpredictable weather in New England – it doesn’t matter how extensively you plan, you’ll always be left with one Mother (Nature) of a variable – the weather. If you get married in the spring or summer in Maine, rain is always a possibility. The good news is in Hindu tradition, rain, and a lot of it, is considered great luck. That’s because a wet knot is tougher to untie than a dry one (getting married is sometimes referred to as “tying the knot”) and so rain on a wedding day foretells a long, happy, and financially secure marriage.

Still, tell that to your mother-in-law getting soggy on the lawn. The simplest answer to rescue your mother-in-law and everyone else from drowning is to move the ceremony inside. For minimal disruption, choose a venue whose inside option is steps away from the outside one. At French’s Point, we can easily move ceremonies to the main cottage ballroom, which looks out over the bay and the lawn for that outside feeling without the mess.

If you’re set on staying outside, make sure you have the tent for it. I recommend Massachusetts-based Sperry Tents. Not only do they erect a drop-dead gorgeous tent, but they have a technician on-site throughout the event to make sure the tent is functioning as it should, which is very handy if the weather changes.

Finally, if there’s a good chance of rain in the forecast, consider embracing it by wearing some funky galoshes and providing umbrellas whose color matches the ceremony aesthetic. Rain has a way of altering the wedding mood and there’s that critical moment where everyone watches the bridal party to see whether the unexpected effect will swing the vibe glass half empty or half full. So make it fun, splash around if you want, take pictures in the rain. Enjoy the weather and all the good luck it brings your love knot.
