I would honestly worry more about rain than heat.Not to mention it is hurricane season from June 1- November 30. Although there may not be a storm to worry about at the time, why stress about it at all?
For this reason we will be married the end of March.

@danymarie: Why can’t you do it in one of the fall months so you’re not rushed on planning? I think anytime after September would be MUCH more comfortable for your guests. My Future Sister-In-Law & Future Brother-In-Law got married in NYC in July, and when we were taking the photos my poor Future Mother-In-Law was lobster pink and sweating and clearly very uncomfortable. Please don’t do that to your guests, especially your older guests.

I live in FL right by the ocean, where it tends to be cooler in the summer than other places such as Orlando, but I’d still say no on a summer wedding. I don’t think I’d go any closer to summer than late April/early May.

July is def. one our hottest months, behind August. I would recommend against a daytime wedding in July- maybe closer to sunset (although thats around 8pm during the summer!) I attended a wedding last July, outdoors, and even in my sundress I was drenched in sweat. And the poor guys in the tuxes-dripping!! If you are near the ocean, there is potential for a breeze, but thats not always a guarantee either. The upside to a July wedding is that many places do offer a discounted rate during the hottest summer months, due to less business– its worth asking for!

I got married outside in June in Florida on the beach. It wasn’t too hot, our ceremony was at 5pm and even in my wedding dress I wasn’t dripping sweat. (Florida is actually cooler than Kansas/Missouri in the summer.) Our wedding was in Jupiter, FL.

I live in Deerfield Beach, and it would be too hott I think. Not only that but it rains a lot during this time because it is hurricane season. In Florida it gets super humid in the summer. I would choose a winter month instead

We’re getting married just north of Sarasota in St. Pete Beach.
And YES, it will be hot! Luckily, if you’re near the beach, you’ll get somewhat of a breeze. I agree with supplying your guests with fans for an outdoor ceremony. If you’re going to go with an outdoor ceremony, TRY to arrange an indoor reception. And maybe have the ceremony later in the day when it starts to cool down.

I would NOT do an outdoor wedding in July in Florida. It’s going to be way too humid which makes any heat worse. AND it’ll 50-75% chance be raining. It rains like everyday in the afternoon.

Heat, rain, mosquitos, and the chance of hurricanes… I’d avoid Florida that time of year.
ETA: Didn’t know this was a zombie thread!

I’m getting married in Florida in June, and I did not want an outdoor wedding because of the heat (and weather- summer is the rainy season). And July is even hotter.
