    in my opinion, id say october, as july can be VERY hot for some people, i know we have a few eldery that cant be outside in the heat for long periods of time.

    also theres a lot of family vacations in july, and people book vacations sometimes 2 years out!

    July can be brutally hot, so an outdoor ceremony in July could be really unpleasant for everyone!

    Isn’t there the potential for snow in Chicago in October?  I would normally say October for an outdoor ceremony, but I voted for July because Chicago is so cold.

    I’m originally from Northern Illinois, and I voted July.  October can be awful, even though it’s been mild the last few years.  I remember Octobers with snow, with awful storms, or it being absolutely freezing.

    I’ve been to outdoor weddings in Northern Illinois in July, and yes it can be hot, but it’s not as big of a crap-shoot as October.

    Forgetting the weather aspect–summer is tourist season–therefore much more expensive.  I vote October.

    @veggie_rachel:  I would go with October since July might be too humid and hot for an outdoor ceremony.  I don’t know about you, but I sweat easily so I don’t want my makeup to melt, hahaha.

    Even though October can be cold… I’d chose that over July. But I may be biased. I love October!

    I vote October, although I would probably scratch the outdoor ceremony and make it indoors.

    Why not mid-September? The weather in Chicago is usually nice then.

    As an October 2013 bride, I’m definitely partial to October 🙂

    I haven’t been living in Chicago for a long time, but based on my limited experience, July was unbearbly hot, and October was really nice!
