Hosting a spring wedding in Washington, DC, Maryland, or Northern Virginia can have weather challenges as we get a fair amount of rain. I remembered watching the weather radar all day, trying to determine if we could have the outdoor baraat for the groom’s procession. In between periods of rain, we were able to take photos outdoors as planned. We were also able to do the baraat for the groom in a fancy convertible. As soon as we entered the covered the pavilion for the ceremony, it began to rain. As a wedding planner, we always discuss what to do in case of rain and have a plan ready to go. But nonetheless, we know it’s not our client’s preference to use the rain plan and will try our hardest to make their original plan work if at all possible. Fun fact: after planning Indian and South Asian weddings for over 15 years, it was our first time being part of a traditional Bengali wedding ceremony. You never stop learning.
