landlocked bride® | midwest + mountain west wedding inspiration

plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

Rain. Most brides (and grooms) dread that lovely little four letter word. We all wish for sun and blue skies on our wedding day. But at the end of the day, shouldn’t you be excited about getting married, regardless of what the weather is like? I think this bride’s face says it all.

  1. Agreed! It gives you an excuse to use cute little umbrellas & parasols! Also, I’ve heard photographers say that clouds are actually great for superior picture quality.

  2. I love this bride. Way to be.

  3. Attitude is everything! You cannot let a litte rain dampen the best day of your life…her smile is all the sunshine she needed. 🙂

  4. Rain would be so much better than a heat wave – trust me! And umbrellas look awesome in photos. She looks radiant.

  5. Couldn’t agree more Brit! It’s about the moment and the reason for the big day, not about the weather! Plus, the rain could make for some cool pictures!
