Maya Hampton :  Date twins! We chose the date as well due to the chill in the air. Getting married in MN when the typical temps are 50-60F at that time of year. We decided if it looks like it will be cold, the bridesmaids will get shawls and we will have blankets for our guests.

I do agree about the time of the wedding though, we are starting at 3PM.

I would move your ceremony time a little earlier, and also plan on providing blankets for guests (especially elderly ones). You could look into renting heat lamps, as well, or having a fire, if your venue allows.

Maya Hampton :  Our wedding was the last weekend in September in northern Minnesota.  Our ceremony was indoors, but we did pictures outside by Lake Superior (so there’s a chilly wind).  I think the temp was about 60.  We were fine for the 20 mintutes and my sister/bm just threw on a shawl.

As long as people can figure out that it is outdoors from your invitations, they will know to wear a coat/whatever weather approriate clothing they may need.  Don’t worry!
