It’s risky, that’s for sure. But if you get a good day….how beautiful! Im in new england (western mass), and the weather is unpredictable as you know! I think if you plan for poor weather (tents, floors, etc), you could do it!

I say go for it.

We are doing our whole wedding outside next month in Maryland. Honestly, there could be anything from pouring rain to 100+ degrees that day. I’m freaking out a little bit but I think it’s worth it to have a beautiful (hopefully) outdoor wedding.

Our plan is to have the ceremony by the water (not tented) and the reception a few yards away in a huge tent. The people we are renting from said that they can add an additional tent for the ceremony and add sides to the tents if needed with just a few days notice (5 day forcast!)

As for bugs, you can spray the area the morning of the wedding. My parents went to a wedding at our location a few weeks ago, they sprayed that morning and there were no bugs that evening. We are going to find out what they used!

Yes, it could be a disaster, but check the farmers almanac and if it’s really your dream, I say it’s worth the risk!

If the weather worked in your favor, it would be beautiful. I vacationed in Eastham, Capecod the weekend of September 19, 2008 and it was amazing weather. We wore shorts, laid out on the beach, walked the pups along the dunes, one of the best vacations I’ve had. My coworker went to Hynannis the very next weekend and it poured Fri-Sunday, she spent the entire weekend at the Kennedy museum trying to stay dry.

It’s risky but with a tent, really good organization and some back up plans, you should be ok. I can only imagine it to be beautiful and something to always remember.

def say go for it! I’m doing an outdoor wedding as well in Florida and I understand the dilema about weather being unpredicable but hey, it’s what I want!


If it’s what you want, it will turn out amazing! Don’t be a worry wart 😉

And, we’re all a little crazy-just some show it more than others… but I really can’t say much–just embraced it and love the crazy life

August and September would be ideal for outside in NE in the Fall; October would not. Aug and Sept are not too cold nor too hot, but it can start snowing as early as Oct, especially on the coast. As far as rain goes, that’s always a concern for an outdoor wedding–no matter what geographic region or season. In Savannah we often have afternoon showers, right around the time of day people want to get married, which makes planning a bit difficult, so remember to have a backup plan–just in case!
