Garden Reception - What if it rains?!
Long time forum stalker, first time poster!
The wedding is now just under a year away and the stress and anxiety is beginning to occupy most of my brain capacity!
We have a grand guest list of 20 people. The ceremony will be held at the registry office and then we have a lovely holiday home booked out to hold the reception, it has a garden with glorious sea views. But I recently realised the space inside the house is considerably lacking in comparison to the big garden. So ... what if it rains?
I've gone through 2 stages so far...
Stage 1 - Panic! Google all marquees ever in the history of man! Email all restaurants local to the reception regarding making dinner reservations
Stage 2 - Ehh it's just rain, we're all used to the weather being unpredictable living in the UK - just go with the flow!
We aren't very well off at all in terms of money so we can't just organise marquee hire on the off chance we might need one, or put the deposit down on a group booking... we need to be so careful with our spending.
But if the heavens truly open ... we will need to squeeze everyone into the kitchen and living room... and I don't know how fun that would be.
It won't be the biggest party of the year by any means, but I do want our guests to have a good time regardless of the weather.
I'm not sure what to do! Any advice?
Much love to all you beautiful brides and brides to be!
