I’m getting married the end of May in Aruba!  Its great weather there year around and its not in the hurricane belt, so it hardly rains either.  Aruba is known to be a windy island so it makes up for it being hot because there’s always a cool breeze!  You should look into it…I’ve been really happy with the planning process, I’m basically done with the planning part, I just have to send the invites!  If you want, you can look at my bio…I posted pictures of our venue when we did our site visit this past Aug!  Hope this helps!

Rosemary Beach makes a beautiful wedding location. We have a house there, and it’s not too hot in late June, usually, but maybe my heat-sensors are skewed. :p

Are you looking to do something in the U.S. or abroad?

We got married in North Carolina at the end of June. It was hot, but not sweltering. The beach had a nice breeze which kept everyone comfortable. It was also considered their driest month in the summer.

In the Carribean, everywhere is going to be hot but most islands have a nice trade wind that keeps them comfortable.

US destination beaches would be cooler if you focused on ones that are a bit further north than typical. Pretty much the whole California coast on the northern part of the state as well as up into Oregon is just beautiful. Same goes for the east coast. You can find very beautiful beaches and I bet much more affordable than a destination wedding in the Caribbean.

I just scheduled my wedding for June 19th and I’m having it in Southwest Florida.  Even if it may be hot, i think it will be beautiful.  Just plan your dress and your brideaids dresses as light material.  The men can wear khakis or something light too.

It’s hot, yes, but remember there is usually a very nice beach wind/breeze coming through.

If you are getting married in FL, just remember our motto: if it’s raining, give it’s five mins and it will look like it never happened! (unless of course it’s hurricane season but that doesn’t start till August) We usually have “afternoon” showers ..if you are looking for an evening wedding, it will cool down a lot.

I would just avoid the hours between like 12-3! That is when it’s the hottest so plan according as well as lighter materials, sunscreen handouts (or in OOT), and maybe fans.

We’re getting married on the beach in May (the last weekend) and providing fans for our guests. But, we seriously are not planning on having a ceremony longer than 20-25 minutes! We also are planning on having a 6 o’clockish wedding (sunset is like at 7:30 though :()

It is hot in the Caribbean but the temperature never really changes much throughout the year like it does in the states. The only real difference between the winter in the Caribbean and the summer is that the summer tends to be wetter and the winter nights are a little cooler. Other then that the temperatures stay between 77 and 83 degrees year round.

As the ladies have suggested already, the answer to your question really depends on where you want to have it.
