The Geil.Briscoe wedding: Why it is important to have a backup plan in Montana
Christine and Mike were married last Saturday at Springhill Pavilion in Bozeman. They were hoping to have an outdoor wedding and had picked a beautiful location. With it's rustic buildings, apple trees, gazebo and green pastures nestled up against the mountains, Springhill Pavilion is a wonderful true Montana wedding venue. However, when planning a wedding in Montana you always have to consider the weather. It can be beautiful and sunny one minute here and hailing the next. Usually the rain showers do not last for very long and can be waited out. Unfortunately, that was not the case with Mike and Christine's wedding day. They had to make the difficult decision at the last minute to pull their ceremony indoors. Luckily, they had chosen a venue where they could do just that. There is also always the option of renting a tent and using it as your backup plan if your venue does not have a building, or even if it does. If you are using a wedding planner they can help you with all of those details. If you are not using a wedding planner, a rental company, such as Montana Party Rentals, is a good place to go to discuss all of your options once you have chosen your venue.
Mike and Christine both have a great sense of humor and were not phased one bit by the weather. They never once lost sight of what their wedding was really about.
I loved how Christine put the names of her bridesmaids on the vases used to hold their bouquets. It added a personal touch to the wedding party's table.
One last look at the rain before deciding what to do.
They say that rain on your wedding day is good luck, but when getting married in Montana it is best not to leave your wedding day plans up to chance. If you are prepared for all of the types of weather that this state can throw at you, you will be able to relax and enjoy your wedding.
