There is a rumour of snow and my wedding is in less than a week. Any hints of tips to help us cope? Already had some people say they want to come but don’t want to risk it..!

Have people on standby with shovels. Have your wellies ready. Then just take a deep breath and enjoy it regardless of the weather. What will be, will be and you will have a fabulous whoever makes it and regardless of those who don't. All the best x

I had a snow covered wedding on the 9th December last year and it was absolutely incredible. It made the day so memorable and it really is a one in million chance. The pics are amazing the venue even uses them for advertising!

Just roll with it. Rain, hail, snow or shine you will still LOVE your wedding day! You can't change the weather but you can sure as hell make sure it doesn't dampen your mood. Everyone who truly wants to be there will make it no matter what the weather. And if things don't go exactly to plan don't let it frustrate you. You only get this day once so enjoy every minute and make sure your cup is half full... of wine and champers all day!! Plus if it snows your photos will look incredible and it will be the funny story years down the line of how you had a white wedding in Spring hope you have a magical day

My grandma had her car break down and had to walk to church; she was just over an hour late to the wedding - they’re still married 60 years later 🙂

Your venues will all have plans in place for snow, especially in Scotland where we get lots of it. Just make sure that if you do have photos taken outside that you have coats to wear to keep warm in between takes. I was a bridesmaid at a February wedding and it was baltic, nothing romantic in having photos taken in the snow when everyone is shivering. You will just have to wait until the day of the wedding to see how bad it is, depending on where you stay it may not be that bad.

I think the snow will add to your day! If people want to miss out, let them. As long as they aren't important to your day then don't let it worry you ❤

Try not to worry there are so many things that could happen for guests not to come you’d go crazy thinking of them all.. so relax and think the main thing is you’re getting married and that’s all that matters.
As for snow itself I think it will look beat in the pics. I kept thinking the worst as I had my wedding Oct last year and everything was predicted from gale force winds to heavy showers.. the morning was lush crisp sunshine, then windy afternoon and then rain in the evening! But some of the best photos were in the rain! And the guests didn’t even realise it was raining as they were indoors

Wrap up warm and take see through brollies. You can still have amazing pictures even with wellies on!

Me and my husband got married in august 2015 on the morning of our wedding there was a torrential storm absolutely AWFUL!!!! my husband bless his heart went into town with his groomsmen picked up 2 different pairs of wellies for me to choose from and as many umbrellas as they could carry for us and the guests. Turns out they werent needed after all as luckily during the actual ceremony the weather turned and the sun came out. You never know what is going to happen your guests will make a judgement call on the morning of your wedding they cant possibly comment yet! The snow may well not even come! If it is too bad for some people to come it will be a shame but you will have a wonderful day regardless! Have an amazing day dont panic!

Exactly. The weather is always changing. My daughter got married 29th December, she was hoping for a hard frost or light dusting of snow. She didn't get either but we are a fantastic day. Snow would give your photographer some fantastic shots. Deep breath, shovels, wellies & clear plastic umbrellas (just like the Queen uses) have a brilliant day. Enjoy.xx

Tell everyone to be sensible, pack a coat a scarf and some wellie boots and get on with it! Your photos will look amazing and what a way to start your married life! Quite a story for your wedding! It will be fine! X

If I could guarantee snow I would definitely marry in the winter months. It makes everything look so much prettier!
