    82 is hot? 82 is a dream temp in July! It was 104 when we got married last July! We had to have it indoors but if there had been an option of it being close to 82 we might have had it outside!

    82 is wonderful.

    I’d be more concerned with getting married on a holiday. No offense, but I hate holiday weddings.

    We’re going to an outdoor wedding next weekend with an expected high temperature of 95 and RealFeel of 100, so 82 does not sound too hot to me!!

    we are getting married oin July when it averages 100 degrees and 90% humidity. We are having everything indoors but pictures and are hoping for a cool front or rain (seriously, I’m from Buffalo and don’t do swamp well, but that was the only date that worked)

    @bunnyharriet:  That’s my wedding date too! A lot of my friends have gotten married in the summer, because we are teachers. So I don’t really see the problem. Most of the weddings took place indoors.

    We did go to an outdoor wedding July of this year and OMG it was so hot. But it really just depends on the weather that you get. My parents got married mid-May, which is usually high of 70s and it turned out to be one of the hottest days of the year. So you really don’t know. 

    And I don’t really find that BIG of an issue with a July 4th wedding (as I am having one too). Most people will just go to a BBQ that day. It’s not like it’s some super serious holiday.  So instead of going to a BBQ they can go to my wedding. Plus, it’s a Friday that year, so they have the whole weekend to BBQ. And lets be honest, someone is going to be upset or complain about the day regardless of what day you pick. So do what you want.

    Great weather! I am getting married at the end of August (2013) in socal and the temps are usually in the 90’s in our location. Our venue has plenty of shaded areas and it should definitely be cooled down by the time our ceremony takes place (5) and will definitely be cooler at night time with our outdoor reception. I say go for it! If people don’t like it they can simply leave 🙂

    We had a July wedding and it was HOT during the day (although we were in the late 80s/early 90s here in SoCal). We picked July because we were having a late afternoon/early evening wedding so by then, our venue was shady and breezy (by the ocean).

    A few things to consider:

    1) The sun is bright/overhead in July. Your photographer will be really sad because that is not the best light for photos.

    2) If your officiant needs to read during the ceremony (vs having it all memorized), the sun may be in his/her eyes during the ceremony.

    3) Depending on where the sun is overhead, you may not get shade from the covered patio or the trees.
