Outdoor weddings at licensed venues in England and Wales are legalised permanently after the change received overwhelming support from the public, faith groups and the wedding industry.

Now the Simply Be wedding calculator is here to help you choose the best day for your big day. The company have looked at 89 years’ worth of official Met Office rainfall data to highlight which days have historically been the driest, and of course which days have had a pouring:

April is typically the driest, with an average daily rainfall of just over 2mm. So, it appears even the stereotypical April showers shouldn’t put a dampener on your day.The 18th April was supposedly the best day that month.

Now for what we don’t want to hear – the wettest days. If you’re dreaming of a summer wedding, you might fare best giving August a wide birth. It has the most rainfall out of the summer months of June, July and August, and even boasts more rainfall on average than the spring months.
