I think you’re right–2nd week in October would be better if you’re looking for rampant fall color.

This was my concern last year…we actually changed the date three times Embarassed

We settled on October 22 to guarantee fall foliage..but we are concerned we are going to freeze everyone out during our outdoor ceremony. I am in PA, so there is a difference in when the leaves will change compared to your area…

Google something like “Leave changing time in New England”

There are people who track it every year..

Some website somewhere should be able to tell you if you will have the fall gorgeousness by your date..

good luck and congrats!

Where in New Hampshire?  The further north you go, the earlier peak foliage.  New Hampshire in general peaks much earlier than where I live (MD).  MD usually peaks the last week or two of October.

I’m getting married next October and all the venues tell me the 2nd weekend is when we are in full fall foliage. Since the fall starts earlier in New England, the end of September should work well for you. If you were in the south, I’d say you’d have to change weekends to get the colors.

I’d try to change it… I went to college in the Berkshires and peak foliage was always first two weeks of October…
