For most brides-to-be, there’s one thing in particular that’s on their minds in the run up to the big day – whether it’ll be a washout.

Despite it being good luck in some cultures for it to rain on the big day, most brides fear having to shelter from the elements under a brolly when they tie the knot – not to mention the mud that could ruin a crisp white wedding dress.

Thankfully fashion retail brand Monsoon has come up with a new tool which calculates the likelihood of showers.

The innovative wedding weather calculator works by identifying how likely it is to rain on a specific date based on previous years.

So bridal parties simply need to select their chosen date and UK location, say, for example, 29 August 2019 in the South East, and the clever calculator will throw out a percentage chance of rain (22.99% in this instance).

It even goes the extra mile, with insightful weather facts, including the driest days of the year – with 29 June, 1 July and 28 August showing up as the best rain-free dates for the summer months.

It’s worth pointing out that the calculator is unlikely to be 100% accurate, but it’s great for getting a rough idea if you’re planning a wedding for 2020 or 2021.

Not only is it a useful tool for brides, but it’s also helpful for wedding guests to plan ahead with waterproofs or umbrellas.

A drowned rat vibe is never a good look in wedding pictures, after all.
