Im so excited for you. Choosing a February date is a much better idea. People can easily warm up but there is only so many layers of clothes you can take off to try and escape the brutal heat. I dont think late February will be that cold. Good luck at your [email protected]

Floridian here…. so late May is the beginning of “hot season”. You might luck out and be ok, but it will proably be hot/humid into the evening. Also it is the beginning of rainy season. 

 

Also, beware of random bugs. I remember going to an outdoor play in late May last year and getting divebombed by giant flying somethingorothers. It was terrifying. That is not to mention the liklihood of mosquiotoes. 

 

I’m not trying to scare you (really, I’m not), but Florida outside is so tricky.

Oooh I was just in Florida last December and I was way too hot. I wouldn’t do it!

Yay! For what it’s worth we went to an all outdoor wedding in Miami in February two years ago and it was gorgeous out. I brought a light sweater just in case but never really needed it.

Yes! For the love of God, yes. It’ll be hotter than fried hell outside in May, especially with the humidity. And don’t get me started on mosquitoes. I’m in the same boat. We had everything all planned out for February 2015, in Brooksville, Fl, then things happened and we’re having to move it to our original wedding anniversary in July. I’m not even considering an outside wedding anymore. Believe you me, its going to be miserable. I’d keep the outdoor activities limited only to exiting and entering vehicles. I’ve been to two outdoor weddings, one in August and even one in April. It was terrible, I was sweating like a whore in church. It was just… It was bad.

it is going to be hot for sure the best date to have your wedding in florida would be november-january before it gets too hot, not only your guests are going to be dying but you and the groom. but remember to take the pictures before you get sweaty and you could advise for a light clothing atire for the people comming. also you could leave some water and manual fans for each guest there are many ideas…
