@kinsykarma:  Fall is my favorite season so I would say fall! Especially at a vineyard! That would be so gorgeous!!! Depending on what time of the month it is in September that you are having your wedding on, you might be okay with the weather. 🙂

May can sometimes get unexpectantly hot in PA. I live in York, Pa (14 miles in from Maryland) so I am more familiar with that area of the state. Weather is just really weird around here sometimes – we got 6 inches of snow yesterday, which is usually unheard of at the end of March. I think September is kind of the same way though. A friend of mine had her wedding in September thinking that it would be starting to cool down. Nope – she was sweating through her dress. If you go with September I would definitely opt for a Saturday late in the month. With May I’d go with an early one.

I would go fall at a winery because that’s when the harvest is ready and the pictures outside could be gorgeous!

@adoc86:  My Fiance is from the York area too!  I’m from NC, but I’ve visited his family a few times and it’s a really pretty area.

@kinsykarma I also agree that fall would be a better time (though I may be biased with my own wedding date, lol).  The fall colors would be really pretty at a winery too.

@kinsykarma:  I’d say it can still be a bit chilly in May in PA. September is more likely to be warm, but no guarantees because it can be kind of rainy…

@kinsykarma:  I was in a wedding in late September near Philadelphia a few years ago. The ceremony was outdoors in the late afternoon and it was perfect. I was a bridesmaid in a tea-length dress and I didn’t feel too hot or too cold. It had been raining earlier in the day but even with that the temperature was pleasant.

By evening it had gotten a little chilly but nothing that a light jacket couldn’t handle. It was a perfect day 🙂 I think mid-September would be a perfect time for a wedding.

What time is your ceremony at? I’m having an evening wedding (all outdoors) on Sept. 6th and I was worried it would get too chilly at night. I looked at weather.com for daily averages to help me out. I was looking for highs in the mid-high 70s.
