Firstly well done on such a huge reduction on your numbers. That’s amazing. I don’t know much about the seasons in New Zealand but live in Australia. Maybe you could aim for the in between seasons so that you don’t hit the weather extremes in either country. I suppose it depends on what kind of venue you’re thinking of as well. If it’s completely indoors you won’t be as affected by the weather and that would give you some wiggle room. The pics I’ve seen of some winter weddings look amazing. Good luck!

  • Wedding: January 2013

We got married in NZ this year in Queenstown, and after having lived in NZ for the previous four years I would have to agree that a November wedding is risky because it’s just so rainy there. Even December is pretty hit and miss! I chose the second week of February and my whole family came over from Canada and the UK – no one got snowed in and the weather around and on the wedding was absolutely perfect. I would stick to January or February if you want a chance of it being sunny and warm, especially on the North Island!

  • Wedding: April 2013

Ugh the no kids thing is pretty tricky. However its your wedding not Future Mother-In-Law. I had 2 kids at my wedding both my nieces and both incredibly well behaved. Weather in NZ is NEVER guaranteed. It can poor in the middle of summer and a bit like today (officially winter) its beautiful! We got married on April 20 just north of Auckland. The day before was horrible, it was dark and pouring with rain and freezing cold. Our wedding day was beautiful, blue skies and warm!
