Heto ako, basang basa sa ulan. Walang masisilungan, walang malalapitan. ♪ ♫ Ooops. Hold there, lovebug. Rainy season does not mean you will get wet and gloomy. On the opposite side, it actually brings a lot of good sentiments on your wedding day! Allow us to break it to down to you.
Rain Means Good Luck
According to Hindu traditions, rain on your wedding day symbolizes a long and lasting marriage (because they said that a wet knot is harder to untie). Other wedding superstitions say that rain washes way your bad memories and prepares you for a new start. In cultures such as African, Inca, Voudou, Armenian, Cananite, Norse, Hawaiian, Indigenous Australian, some deities are thought to be both bearers of rain that is associated with fertility and abundance. So actually, having rain on your wedding day is a blessing in itself!
Rain Provides a Beautiful Backdrop
We’ve all seen the beautiful episodes of Endless Love. What made it sentimental and emotive was the scene where the lead actress Jenny held up her hand to feel the drops of the rain on her skin. Raise your hands up if you’ve seen this episode too. Going back, what we’re trying to say is that rain makes for a good, creative backdrop to your wedding photos and videos. Imagine the scenic raindrops and the romantic ambient of falling rain on the roof. Your wedding day photographer will have a grand time being creative with all his shots. And while you’re posing for the cam, you cannot help but relax – maybe lean in for a quick hug or two.
Rain Gives You a Chance to Cuddle Up
While taking photographs in the rain, an umbrella is an ultimate necessity. Couples who are not so keen in posing for the camera love a good prop! It takes away the pressure from them by having something to hold as the main focal point. And of course, posing under an umbrella will give you a chance to cuddle up with your forever. Hey, you don’t want to get wet, do you? C’mon cuddle up and warm each other. The cold temperature will not be a bother.
Rain Reduces Allergens
If you are one of the people who is blessed with allergic rhinitis and the sheer heat brings you sneezes and coughing fits, then having rain on your wedding day is a blessing (literally). Because according to science, rainfall can wash the allergy-causing pollens away, keeping it from flying through the air. The humidity that follows helps keep the pollen down too. Hey, science does not lie!
