    If the high for the day is going to be 75 and that high is predicted for mid to late afternoon, it will not be 70 degrees at 11 am.

    Also, keep in mind is isn’t just temperature – sunshine, wind, and humidity make all the difference in the world.  65, windy, and no sun is way different than 65 sunny and no wind.

    65 windy and cloudy would be a no go for me.

    As long as you have a solid backup plan you might hit the weather jackpot, but be mindful of wind, sun, clouds, etc as well as the temps.

    It seems fine to me.  That’s warm enough to get by without an overcoat, if you dress warmly.  I’d wear a three piece suit, and expect to be perfectly fine; maybe an undershirt.

    PS I think I voted yes, but I thought that means “yes, I’d go” because I’m lazy about reading.

    Hard to say without knowing where you live. In Seattle the weather would be iffy at best and probably not that nice, for example.

    I think it’s fine. Just make sure guests know it’s outside so they can bring a jacket or sweater.

    Elderly people will likely be cold. Also depends on how long your ceremony will be. I personally wouldn’t mind, but as pps said, make sure people know to bring a jacket.

    last year i went to an early evening november wedding.  the bride wanted the ceremony outside.  i wore a wool coat over my dress.  the bride provided a couple of blankets but not enough for everyone.

    i was cold in my coat, i can’t imagine how the bride felt in her strapless gown but that is what she wanted. well maybe she was too nervous to think about the cold but the bridesmaids were cold.

    your may wedding sounds like the temperatures will be perfect with a light jacket if needed.
