So you’ve planned the perfect spring wedding. Outdoor ceremony? Check. A pretty pastel color palette? Check. More florals than you can count (or afford)? Double check. One thing that probably wasn’t on your mood board, though, is rain, but this time of year it’s pretty hard to avoid.
Spring showers are definitely not a part of the ideal wedding day, but it doesn’t mean your day will be a wash. In fact, there are some pretty great reasons you might actually want rain on your special day. “In some cultures, rain on your wedding day is considered good luck, symbolizing fertility and cleansing,” Aviva Samuels, owner of Kiss the Planner in Palm Beach, Florida, told Brides. “So whether you are superstitious or just prefer to look on the bright side, think of it this way: Who couldn't use a little good luck on their big day?"
One thing you might be feeling unlucky about is having to swap your dreamy bridal heels for rain boots, but you shouldn’t. Not only are the comfortable, but they add a charming and unique element to your wedding that few other people will have, not to mention there are some fabulous versions out there that are totally bridal. See how lucky you are?
From ankle height to knee-high rain boots, there are plenty of styles to choose from, all with a wedding worthy slant. Stick with the bridal white theme for an accessory that perfectly matches the rest of your look. If you were planning on going for a colorful moment with your wedding shoes, that option still stands. Metallics take the place of embellished heels, and something blue and bridal blush hues will provide that pop of color you’ll be so happy was captured on camera.
This edit of rain boots is far from ordinary, so you have your choice of embellishments as well. From edgy lace-up designs to sweet bow details, you can wear boots that perfectly match your bridal style. And if you’re worried about your dress that was perfectly fitted to your four-inch heels, not to worry. There are even high-heeled rain boot options.
If you are expecting rain on your big day, don’t panic—just come prepared with one of the rain boots below.
