    I’d be fine with 50+ but I’m from WI so right now anything above freezing feels really warm to me! But I think that would be true for a lot of northerners after this winter. If it’s damp though or really windy, that might make more of a difference to me than the actual temprature alone. 50 and sunny to partly cloudy I’d be fine with but if it’s been rainy, damp, and windy then I think I’d get uncomfortable.

    I think for a march wedding, 54 and sunny with little to no wind is fine. My reasoning is that after a long cold winter (I live in NJ so I know what it’s been like) a 54 degree day feels so nice and warm! Now if it were a June or July wedding, I’d say heck no, too cold because people are used to it being warmer.  Make sense?

    It’s 40 here today and we think it’s a heat wave! But we are from Indiana where we’ve had icky cold weather for months now.

    for me – I’d probably be okay at 50 (especially where you warned me) but I know a lot of people who would find that cold, especially older people.  I would probably make the cutoff 60 unless it’s 50 and bright and sunny with zero wind…(the type of day that feels warmer than it really is)

    I voted 60. I live in Boston and it was 55 last weekend after all the frigid days we have. Sure it was warmer, but unless I was standing directly in the sun, in a warm jacket, I was uncomfortable. Guests may not know what your temperaute cutoff is so they may not be dressed accordingly. But on the other hand, it is your wedding and if you want it outside and you are ok with it, then they can deal 🙂

    I’d say 60, and only if it’s sunny with not a lot of wind.

    I have serious difficulties with your fahrenheit temperatures so I’ve had to convert them to celsius – it’s a British thing so bear with me! – and I’d say that 50 is a little on the chilly side unless standing in a sunny and sheltered spot with absolutely no wind. 

    To be comfortable outside I’d vote for 60. Below that it could be a little on the cold side unless you wrap up very warmly. But as I said, there’s a lot of difference between 54 on a sunny day in the sun and the same temperature on an overcast day with a chill wind is blowing.

    StL.Ashley:  I agree! I’m also in NJ, and if the wind is anything like yesterday, I’d be watching the ceremony from the heated tent.

    kergirl721:  If the weather is like how it was on Wed, you’ll be golden! We’ve had such a craptastic winter that I think that people will be thrilled to be outside if it’s in the upper 50s with no wind! Congrats on being so close to your big day! fingers crossed for great weather
