Weddings by the Season
It’s a fact that weddings happen all year long. Whether it be in high summer, or the dead of winter, celebrations of love know no weather restrictions. Many couples prefer outdoor venues, which are ideal in the warmer months of the year, while others will opt for a cozy indoor ceremony. If you’re considering your seasonal options for your big day, here are a few guidelines and points to consider when setting the date.
Winter: don’t rule out the coldest months of the year for your wedding. Some couples choose a winter month for their ceremony because it holds a special meaning. This also doesn’t mean you have to hold back because of the weather. Indoor reception halls can be the most personable and cozy of all, think of a lodge with a fireplace to set the romantic mood.
Spring: there are few things more romantic than blooming flowers, and what better time to enjoy them than with a springtime wedding? These months allow you the chance to have an outdoor ceremony, and enjoy your reception outside as well. For those on a budget: enjoy better weather before the peak wedding season begins, and prices rise.
Summer: warm nights mean your reception party can go on through the night. Think of a romantic sunset ceremony to start the day, with an outdoor reception under the stars, lit by cozy lanterns. Beach weddings are all the rage, and are less likely to be interrupted by poor weather conditions.
Fall: after one extreme in the weather, and before the next, is a moderate window where you can have the wedding you’ve always wanted, without the peak season prices. The vibrant outdoors offer a stunning backdrop to your ceremony or reception, especially those outside the city, among nature.
