    If snow involved anything to avoid weather delays on plane or driving and storms.

    If I had kids, which I dont, school vacation times.

    Otherwise it doesnt really matter for me personally.

    My husband works in Finance so his year end (his fiscal year is a calender year, but not all companys’ are)

    Moral of the story is, it will change a lot with people.

    The weather here (Ohio) is so unpredictable in the winter! I voted for the other months, as they are all about equal (April through October).

    Thanksgiving and Christmas mean Nov and Dec would be the toughest.

    Feb-early summer, or fall (before Nov). Darling Husband works retail so winter is out. and I don’t like traveling in the heat/summer. Too many other people travel in the summer.

    I picked June because that’s typically when Darling Husband takes time off and we travel!  🙂

    If kids were involved, it would be during summer vacation (late June-early Aug).

    Personally, I’d travel any month if it was a wedding I wanted to attend (and I had enough of a heads up to plan!)

    @kerensa: +1 to everything said.

    My only other stipulation is that I would travel during June/July (aka: hot summer months) because I pass out when I get hot. So a trip away from the heat would be lovely!

    April, May, September, October: weather is calm enough in most places to not make travel miserable, and I’d avoid the summertime fare hikes.

    I didn’t answer because our academic years run at a different time to yours, but in my experience the only “no-go” time is when students have end-of-school or university exams. Outside that time almost any student (and pretty much any worker) can take a couple of days to go to a wedding, but at those times it is simply impossible.

    Here in Australia the universities have two exam periods per year (June and November in our case); I’m not sure if USA is the same. I suggest asking those you know who are (or have kids who are) in the 15-25 age range.

    I’m a teacher in Korea. August or January are the only times I can travel.

    Pretty much any time of the year for me. But this year it really sucks because we have 2 weddings in NOLA and we are in NC. It is about a 12+ hr drive from my house so I am having to miss out on 1 wedding because I don’t have enough days off for both.

    I said May/June/July.

    I’m a student, so this tends to be when my schedule is most flexible. Also couples with school-age children are more likely to be able to travel with their kids or find someone to watch the kids since the kids won’t have to be in school.
