Reasons to embrace a wet wedding day | Steelasophical Steel Band Advice

Reasons to embrace a wet wedding day | Steelasophical Steel Band Advice Reasons to embrace a wet wedding day | Steelasophical Steel Band Advice Why Rain Won't Ruin Your Wedding Day While most couples will dread a damp wedding day with visions of chilly guests, muddy venues and damp dresses, there is still every possibility of having a truly memorable day even after the heavens open. Since it is impossible to control the weather, the best course of action is to fully embrace the situation and get prepared for every eventuality. Here are just a few reasons why rain doesn't need to put a dampener on your special day: 1) Great wedding photographs Even light is still possible on an overcast day. On occasion, the bright, sunny days can make it a little more difficult to capture those special moments, especially if taking shots in direct sunlight. However, the cloudy skies create that extra texture for a stunning backdrop for all your wedding photographs. Completely clear or multi-coloured, there are many artistic opportunities to get creative and take full advantage of the shots taken in the rain. Maybe it is even possible to use a rainbow as the backdrop once an awful storm comes to an end. 2) Let down those barriers Rain can help to bring guests together when it is necessary to huddle under a shelter or share an umbrella. Plus, most people will naturally let down their personal space in times like this, which will mean that guests and strangers are more likely to interact and create new friendships. 3) Hilarious and unexpected moments There may be plenty of opportunities to embrace the comedic value of rain. On a bright sunny day, there is the likelihood of everything going just as planned. But, if the rain starts to fall, there is a greater change of hilarious moments ensuing. Wet shoes, leaking roofs, puddles everywhere ñ while it might not seem that funny at the moment, there will be plenty to laugh at later. Simply embrace the situation and even a little rain won't diminish the all-round beauty and love of the day. 4) Flowers last longer Humidity, cooler temperatures and overcast skies mean that your flowers will look and last that much more compared to dry air, heat and sun. Your centrepieces will continue to thrive in rainy conditions and will most likely last for the entire duration of the big day. 5) It can be good luck Perhaps in the moment, many couples will see the start of falling rain as the worst thing that can happen. But, in some cultures, rain can in fact be seen as a sign of good luck which symbolizes cleansing and fertility. So if you do get rain on your wedding day, why not just look on the bright side and appreciate this extra bit of good fortune. In any event, a wedding day isn't simply about the weather ñ it is [...]

Steelasophical Wedding Steel Band 

By | 2018-05-20T09:18:18+00:00 May 20th, 2018|Categories: Steelasophical|

Steelasophical Wedding Steel Band Steelasophical Wedding Steel Band  Steelasophical Wedding Steel Band  Music is such a key element to any wedding in helping to create the right atmosphere. Music is typically played during the wedding ceremony, during the taking of photographs and during the evening reception. It's important to choose your music carefully to reflect the type of wedding you are hosting. For example if you plan to have a formal wedding with all the pomp and ceremony then perhaps an ensemble, quartet or soloist will work well for the occasion. If your wedding is to have more of a contemporary feel then perhaps you might wish to consider a live band. Do however bear in mind there are no hard and fast rules to choosing music for your wedding. You should have music which you like and that would appeal to a large number of your guests. Steelasophical Wedding Steel Band  When trying to find musicians or bands for your wedding ask if they can supply a sample of their music, that way you will be able to get a feel of the music and decide whether you like it or not. They should have experience performing at a wedding. Do they have a play list and are you able to contribute to the play list? If you are considering hiring a band find out whether guests will be able to ask for requests during the course of the bands set, as this often adds to the enjoyment of the evening. Consult with the wedding venue with regards to the music entertainment you want for the evening.  Ensure the musicians or band liaise with the wedding venue in advance so they know exactly where to set up on the day and whether there is sufficient space. Get a quote for their services, ask that it be itemised so that you can see exactly what you are getting for your money. For example, will the quote include travel expenses, lighting, dance floor hire?(if applicable). Do bear in mind to ensure that your performers are provided with refreshments throughout.  If they are performing during the wedding ceremony and the evening reception then it is good etiquette to provide them with a meal.
