It’s a rainy, snowy, yucky day here in the Charlottesville area which may be why I’m a little behind on today’s post! Last week, I covered how to start putting together your ‘dream team’ of wedding vendors and weather like this has inspired me to share a few more things you’ll need to consider that definitely may not be at the top of your list!
Whether a tent is your main reception space or it’s just needed as a weather back up plan, there are many great options available. Be sure to build back up plans into your budget!
Transportation & Parking
In good or bad weather, transportation and parking are important to consider! If you don’t provide transportation, consider how far your guests have to walk once they arrive or whether there is enough parking at all. If you are facing parking issues at your venue, you can always make a good first impression with valet parking!
You’ll most likely need some rentals (linens, chairs, etc.) but that need can increase in bad weather. You may need things like tent sides, flooring, heaters and additional lighting. If you don’t have a wedding planner, find out which vendors offer these items in advance. Then, you won’t be scrambling to find them just before your wedding.
There are options available to cover all kinds of unexpected problems! WedSafe is a good option or you can ask your insurance company about options for adding wedding coverage on to your homeowners insurance policy.
