In the Southwest we’re usually blessed with predictability beautiful weather for the festive season.
However, even in the summer we can be hit with rain storms, and if you’re getting married in winter the Margaret river region can be a washout. Don't let rain kill your vibe. Here are some tips on what to do if its forecast to rain:

If it does look like it’s going to be a rainy day, buy or rent some clear umbrellas for you and your wedding party. Make sure they are clear so the light still hits your face. Remember you can always return unused umbrellas if it doesn't rain.
Don't forget about your guests - they'll be affected by the rain too. Make sure there are umbrellas available for everyone. If you're having an outdoor ceremony, consider providing blankets or heaters to keep them cozy. Their comfort and happiness matter, rain or shine.
More from Sue-Ellen:
"At Edith Valley we have a stunning custom built fire place that is perfect for keeping your guest cozy indoors. We also provide outdoor heaters for the veranda.
The evenings do get rather chilly in the southwest so we suggest that clients consider purchasing blankets that can be placed around the venue for guests to use as needed."
