  • Wedding: December 1969

Congratulations!

 I believe June, September and October are considered the peak months for weddings. We’re getting married in August and it is considered off-peak and we were able to get a discount from the venue.

Depends on city/location too.  Here in Seattle any month with potential of not seeing rain is peak 😛  (May to Sept)

  • Wedding: November 2008

sphbride has a point. I just googled it today myself and came away with Nov-Apr but have no idea if this applies to all regions…if not, which regions does it apply to….sigh…..  I’m beginning to wonder of I will have to call a wedding planning service to find out for my area.

Peak season ranges… especially if you’re having a destination wedding.  But in general, May through October is peak, with November-January next up, and February being the least busy. 

Keep in mind, many venues do book up most weekends, but February is usually their slowest. So if you’re looking for the best bargain, book a Friday or Sunday in February, and if you’re lucky, you can plan it with Presidents Day in mind and have a long weekend!

  • Wedding: April 2008

Think about where you live. March, April & May, October and November are peak wedding season in St Augustine, FL. Also, high tourist months here are Jan-April. The weather makes those months the peak months here.

the only thing i will say about getting married in february which in general is cheaper than all other months, you may run into higher than usual floral costs due to valentines day so if you are considering february, i would factor that into the equation.

It varies geographically. I am in the SF Bay Area and I’m sure September is a popular month because it is also the warmest in the year with the best weather for downtown.

If you’re in LA, there really isn’t any off-peak seasons, but I think the most popular months are May-Nov.
