Just wondered which season is favored by your guys and the reason why you choose it.
I am a little vacillating now, and think your opinion will help me. :)
@Jessica2013: We wanted a sunset ceremony but for it to still be warm and not look like fall... so that left us with September. haha. Kinda wish I didn't care about sunset! Would have been ssooo much easier. We probably would have done June or maybe July. We love summer :D Tried like crazy to avoid fall colors... just not very appealing to either of us for some reason... haha. We wanted to get married overlooking the ocean with palm trees and blue water though. Sigh for living in Maryland.
@Jessica2013: OMG date twins?? Seriously??? Nobody has our date... is it really yours too? This is strangely exciting. lol
Oh rigtt... then I read your post again. duh. lol
We had our wedding in October because my student visa was going to expire at the end of the month. If we waited any longer I would have to go back to the US and start the immigration process from zero. It didn't really matter since we live in a mountainous region and it's beautiful.
Jessica2013, thumbs up on the September wedding. I'd be hesitant about having a summer wedding in Maryland. It's so hot and sticky....at least in the D.C. metro region.
We chose March because it worked best with my schedule, FI's schedule, and my FIL's who have restrictive leave policies at their jobs. It was just the easiest time of year for us. Plus, hotels in my area are significantly less expensive, since I live in a very touristy location.
I actually wanted a fall wedding, but with so many teachers and students in the family (including FI), it was just easier to have it in the summer. June is too busy, I don't like July, so August it was. The date we picked was totally arbitrary--I was pretty much trying to get as close to September as we could, keeping in mind school schedules (especially because FBIL will be heading to college!).
We're still trying to pick between spring and summer. Summer makes it more likely to be warm but spring in our garden is simply amazing. That's why I am hoping the summer solstice works out. Usually the garden is at its peak near then.
Winter. It was the cheapest.
We chose the fall because in my area it's the best weather. Summer is too hot, winter is too cold, and spring can be quite rainy. I also wanted at least a year to plan but not 2+ years so fall was the best choice (we got engaged in July)
We went with September because I wanted an outdoor wedding - we got engaged in December, so it was either that summer or wait a whole year more (I was impatient!) and August was already "taken" by my cousin.
We got married on our 6th anniversary which happens to be in winter.
June 1 is technically spring, although it will feel like summer. :) We chose it because we liked the way the date sounded.
We picked early September because September in Maryland is very spring-like. It's technically still summer, but fall is creeping in at the edges. We were already attending 2 weddings + my graduation, in the spring so late-summer, early-fall was the obvious choice.
We got married in late spring. Reason? I work in college athletics and late spring/early summer are the only times I definitely have free.
Spring, because it's just too damn hot in Texas during the Summer! lol And during football season is not even an option.
Summer is way too hot for my taste and I had no other reason to pick it. So I would have picked spring (April) or fall (September or October) all other things being equal. Our wedding date was our first date...so it worked out.
April because there was a special deal at our venue for it! I also don't care if it rains.. makes for some great pics
Our two favorite seasons are summer & fall, and we loved the idea of a fall wedding. We chose to have our wedding at the same place my parents had their reception, overlooking a river. It's always so beautiful there in the fall, and there's also no boats out on the water since it's just become a bit too chilly for that. Plus, we didn't want a long engagement, so we had 7 months to September, which was plenty of time to plan. We didn't want to have to wait until the next summer, so we chose fall :)
Winter. It was the only time other than summer that all family members could make it (and we cared more about our family being present than anything else), and I despise the summer (I had no interest in being a sweaty bride, which I inevitably would be in anything over 70 degrees, lol).
Summer. Because its beautful in Wa, and 'usually' doesn't rain. Our summer highs usually top out at 80's.
We chose summer because it's beautiful here in the summer :) I love the month of June because it's the first month that is sunny and beautiful after a long drawn out winter.
I originally wanted october but my venue was booked every saturday between august 31st and November 19th. Since we have people traveling from Canada we actually like the labor day weekend date better. November would risk snow already in many area. So summer it is for us!
Summer... both DH and I are teachers. Made the most sense!
We live in Florida. For half of the year it is ridiculously hot outside and we wanted an outdoor wedding so that eliminated late Spring through early Autumn pretty quickly. Then we knew we had guests flying in from the UK so we tried to pick months when it would be cheaper for them to fly in but still have nice weather. We narrowed it down to late October through late February with the holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's cut out (holiday weddings get expensive fast.)
We then searched for our preferred venue; a beachhouse that allowed weddings and found one available for the last week in October/first week in November 2013 so that is how we picked our venue and date.
This might sound silly, but because DH proposed on a 21st, i wanted the wedding to also be on a 21st, so the only 21st that worked and was on a Saturday was April 21st, 6 months from the date he proposed and we were so lucky that the weather so FAB!
We chose winter. We got engaged Christmas Eve 2011. I had never wanted a spring wedding. I don't know why just never did. And all the females on my Mom's side of the family were married in April and I wanted something different. I always thought I would have a fall wedding. I love the weather here in the fall. However, with the timing of our engagement and wanting to get married in the catholic church that meant fall 2012 was out. Not enough time. Plus it has become a very popular time to get married in my area and things book up well over a year in advance. So that meant fall 2014 and about 21-23 month engagement. No thank you we are in our 30s. That left winter. The more I thought about it the more it grew on me. I could do a winter themed wedding, lots of white, and silver and little lights. I love that I am not competing with a ton of other brides for vendors. I have received discounts because it is the off season. It makes hotel rooms for people easier (I live in a seasonal resort town). The month my brother got married had 5 weekends in it. They had weddings 4 of those weekends. That seemed insane to me. So I just went with winter. I haven't regretted it once. Now ask me that in a few weeks after I see how the weather turned out. Haha.
Winter, only because of the the anniversary of our first date. Well, our first date was actually a leap day and there won't be another for a while (Plus the next one falls mid-week) But every year we have been celebrating the anniversary of our first date on the 28th if there isn't a 29th that year. So 2014 when the 28th falls on a friday seemed like a pretty good time. We've gotten to used to celebrating our anniversary to change it, even though getting married outside would have been really nice.
We had a spring wedding, I love the weather in spring, it's not too hot and not too cold and I love the flowers and green grass (a hot commodity here in Texas where everything goes brown rather quickly!).
We choose August that is the month and wanted and outside wedding
We chose April because it's just the time when everything is starting to turn green again, but still not considered "wedding season". Our photos will be beautiful, it won't be exceptionally hot, and out prices are a bit lower =]
Spring for us because Im a teacher and on spring break. Its nice weather in Vegas for an outdoor afternoon ceremony:)
We choose the fall because we live in Texas and I wanted an outdoor wedding without melting.
Also, we choose Fall over Spring because Texas is very unpredictable and sometimes it is already burning up by April or it can even snow in the Spring months. So the October timeframe was much more of a gaurantee for nicer weather.
I chose summer because I'm a teacher and obviously I'm off. I always wanted a summer wedding anyway because it's my favorite season. I would never have chosen winter because I don't want to freeze my butt off outside taking pictures. (My husband wanted winter.) I don't care for spring because of the rain, and I'm a cranky person during the fall season because it's back to work.
We married in the summer in August. We wanted to get married the same month as our dating anniversary.
We picked late September, because I love fall colors, but we were hoping it would still be decently warm. This was a pretty big gamble because in ND, it can be anywhere from 50 to 85 in late September, you never know. It ended up being a little colder than I would've liked (a high of about 60-65), but it could've been worse, and we still had a great time! I was a little annoyed though because both the weekend before and after our wedding were PERFECT - high of about 75 and sunny. Oh well, you can't do anything about the weather. :)
