Worried about the weather. How do you protect your party from the rain.


The UK weather is pretty hard to predict. Officially Spring (March, April and May) is a time for sudden rain showers. Summer (June, July and August) is the UK’s warmest season, with long sunny days, occasional thunderstorms and, in some years, heatwaves. Autumn (September, October and November) can be mild and dry or wet and windy. How do you decide which is the best month for an outdoor event.

So we conclude that in the UK it can, and does, rain at any time of the year, and no two years follow the same weather pattern.

This makes planning outdoor events and parties pretty tricky, and the last thing you need to be worrying about on your big day is whether it’s going to rain and ruin everything.

How do you have an outdoor party in the rain?

The two most popular ways that you can provide shelter to your party are marquee party tents, and pop-up gazebos. Both will provide you with substantial shelter and shade, and both have their benefits.

Luckily with a marquee you can mitigate against the weather. Marquees come in all shapes and sizes, and have the option to remove outside panels or have floor to ceiling windows, so you can still have the outdoor experience you planned for your event, but with rain and wind protection.bedecked-table-marquee

For worry-free party planning, at Bedecked we can help, we have a range of marquees seating from 36 in a 6M x 6M marquee to 190 seated in 22M x 6M marquee. The sides can be installed or removed easily depending on the weather. If it does rain your guests will appreciate a sheltered area where they can continue to enjoy the event in comfort.

We also hire all the extras – coconut floor matting, so you don’t need to worry about mud or soft grass. Festoon lights to brighten even the darkest dampest day. Sufficient seating is also recommended if you all have to take shelter, and we can provide the tables, chairs, linen etc  As well as the sound system, crockery, cutlery and glassware, table accessories  (candelabra, table lanterns, tealight holders)

We recommend you plan for all weathers when holding a wedding or party.

It’s not only rain that can put a dampener on an event; it’s worth having a hot weather plan, too. So from blankets to suncream, make sure you’re in a position to accommodate your guests whatever the weather.
