Weddings are always fun, not just for the couple, but for everyone involved in it, too. From the celebrations to the feeling of excitement and the coming together of friends and relatives, everything is worth the experience. If you are one of those who fancies a monsoon wedding and have planned your wedding in the next couple of months, then this is for you. In addition to being extremely romantic, organising a monsoon wedding can be slightly tiresome, as one needs to keep a few concerns in mind. Here are a few ways that will help you realise the rainy-day wedding dream sans any mishaps. From the venue to food and maintaining your health as well as keeping things dry and in order, here are ideas that will make the ceremony beautifully memorable, rather than a disaster…

Weddings mean a great deal of power consumption. Monsoons are known to lead to sudden electrical breakdowns due to bad weather, so make sure you have all the necessary arrangements to tackle a power failure since you wouldn’t want a blackout on the most important day of your life. It is very important to have a provision of a generator at the venue. Most monsoon weddings have to be supported by an external power supply.


Open shaadi venues look ecstatic, since no one can recreate nature as beautifully as it does for itself. Hence, a lot of couples prefer to have their wedding set up at lavish openair venues like lawns and poolsides. However, the season’s thick cloud cover, might make you do a rethink. Worry not, here’s what you can do. To enjoy the best of both worlds, opt for a venue with large windows that overlook the outdoors or simply opt for a strong water-resistant shamiyana in a lawn, where you can smell, feel and experience the rains without getting wet. Won’t it feel like a fairytale to tie the knot at such a picturesque venue?


Ensure your wedding venue is wellequipped to handle the rains. Keep um brellas and other rain-gear ready, for guests. Try and customise your venue to fit the rain gear in such way that it looks part of the theme. For instance, hang colourful umbrellas, upside down to give it that rainy feel. Even if you are getting married at a closed venue -a lot of weddings involve things like the pheras in an open space -try and make the best of it. For even a small 10-metre distance to your car, make sure you have umbrellas and raincoats handy since you don’t want the rain to spoil your make up or clothes.
