Wedding Season is here…how about some warmer weather!

wedding-rain-kissWell, wedding season is here for 2010, and i just cleared frost off my window! I guess this is a good chance to talk about alternate plans for your wedding reception. I have been performing at weddings in and around St. George for over 10 years, and with very few exceptions, all the weddings have been a huge success. Contrary to popular belief it does actually rain in St. George (even a little snow too) and in the spring and summer, it can happen quickly. You may be setting up your chairs at noon thinking what a beautiful day this is, and then suddenly 10 minutes before your ceremony or reception you hear the lighting and thunder coming!

There are a few thing you can do to minimize the impact of such experiences. The most important thing is to have some sort of back-up plan. It doesn’t have to be great, or expensive, but a plan of attack in case of inclement weather is always appropriate. Even a tent can help! Both Forevermore Events and Superior Party Rentals can help with that. Tents can also help with the sun, so they are a good thing to have either way.

Now some venues already have built in alternate locations, so check with your coordinator or location manager to see what they can do (or have done) in the event your location becomes unusable.

The good news is you probably won’t have to use it, but you never know. Out of the 1000’s of weddings I’ve been to, less than 5% of them had a problem, but wouldn’t you rather be ready just in case?

Now we at Festival Sounds are always happy to help in any way. We have lots of good ideas and ways to make sure your day is perfect, so don’t hesitate to ask.
