What If It Rains on Your Wedding Day?

Rain doesn’t have to ruin your wedding day, in many ways it can may the day more fun.

We have an expectation that the weather will be fine on our wedding day particularly if our wedding day is in mid summer. In many cultures rain on your wedding day is in fact a lucky omen. The Italians have a saying “Sposa bagnata, sposa fortunata” which means that a wet bride is a lucky bride. Although most brides and grooms would prefer to stay dry rain is also a good luck in Germany, Sweden and France as rain is associated with a bountiful harvest, and thus, fertility. In fact the rainier your wedding is the more children you will produce!

Not all cultures consider rain to be a good omen. The saying “Happy is the bride whom the sun shines on” can be guaranteed in parts of Spain if the bride’s mother’s chickens can lay a dozen freshly laid eggs and delivered by the bride to the nuns of the convent of St. Clare.  chezbru  Another way to guarantee good weather if you’re catholic is to hang a rosary outdoors on the morning of the wedding. Feeding your cat in the morning will also make the rain go away.

From a photographers point of view rain can really add to the fun, you’ll get some great shots of the guests scurrying around under umbrellas, and you and your new husband can add to the intimacy of the photography by cuddling up together under an umbrella. When you’re getting the wet weather plan in place try and order colourful umbrellas as it will really lift the photographs.  dolldreamersguild  The wedding party under a row of red blue or green umbrellas looks much more fun than they will under a row black umbrellas.

Before the ceremony it’s a good idea to think of an alternative choice of footwear to avoid squelching up the aisle in soaking wet Jimmy Choos. If your dress gets a little dirty a bit of judicious Photoshop work will clean it up for the photographs.

So if you’re getting married in France and the weatherman says it will rain don’t worry, they have a saying “Mariage pluvieux, marriage heureux” which means that  sensoreligi  you will have a happy marriage as a result of a wet wedding. Although I don’t fancy getting wet at a wedding I do know that I’ll get some fantastic photographs if it is.

Caillou is a based on the very curious and adorable French Canadian kid. Caillou was first introduced in books by Chrsitine L’Heureux and illustrated by Helene Desputeaux. The books were later adapted for a television show which is now in it’s 6th season and runs on PBS kids.

Since Caillou is such a curious child with a huge imagination he is always on the go either painting, cooking or even being a scientist. This makes Caillou a very popular character and tv show.

If your child has asked for a Caillou birthday party this year then you are in luck as this is a very fun theme! There are plenty of different party supplies, ideas and creative games to play.

The decorations can be as simple or as complex as you’d like. We suggest primary colors that correspond with the Caillou theme such as blue, yellow and red.  latitudes   This can be incorporated with balloons, streamers and a tablecloth. Then simply add a few official Caillou merchandise to the decorations such as a wall decal or pinnate. You can also have an episode of Caillou playing in the background as the kids arrive or right after lunch. The kids will enjoy watching their favourite show especially if it’s one they haven’t seen before!

Next, the party games. Be sure the party games are active, creative and something that they can use their imagination. This can be as simple as pin the tail on the donkey to having a decorate a place-mat station. The place-mat station would be setup with a white card-stock paper, crayons, stencils, and stickers. The kids can then create whatever image they want using their supplies.  blogholdempoker  Once they’re finished they can either add them to their party favours or use them while they eat food.

Another party game idea would include a relay race where they have to dress up in a silly costume. This could include overalls, striped shirt, hat, scarf and oversized boots. Although, this sounds like a silly idea kids love this game and enjoy laughing with their friends.

Remember with the party games to include time for free-play where the kids get to use their imagination to run, jump and explore on their own.
