We love outdoor weddings, but they definitely come with an unpredictability factor. What if the weather doesn't want to cooperate on the big day? Nevertheless, many brides and grooms are willing to take the risk—and Princess Eugenie is one of them.

 

The princess and her fiancé, Jack Brooksbank, will tie the knot at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle, just like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. They'll also have an afternoon reception at Windsor Castle, hosted by Queen Elizabeth II. But as we previously reported, they're deciding to throw their reception outdoors at a separate location: the bride's family's residence, the Royal Lodge. They plan to set up a tent on the property, which her father, Prince Andrew, owns.

Tented weddings are quite common, so what's the cause for concern? Well, as many British outlets are reporting, there's a big chance that that it will rain. The royal and Brooksbank are getting married on October 12 of this year, and October is reportedly one of the rainiest months in England—not to mention a chilly one. Though marquee-style tents provide a decent amount of coverage, it's not enough to weather any storm.

 

While it's not clear what the couple's rain plan will be, we do know that Sarah Ferguson, the mother of the bride, may be helping them devise one. As we shared earlier, she has a hand in organizing their day. The bride's sister, Princess Beatrice, is likely assisting them as well—she was just announced as the maid of honor for the highly-anticipated event.
