    • Wedding: March 2019

    We get married in March. Decided on March for a number of reasons. Way cheaper than summer and in the UK it being summer is no certainty the weather would be nice, so thought we would save some money. Also,  I love spring because of the flowers and blossom and also because March was 14 months away from when we got engaged so it just seemed right.

    • Wedding: February 2018 - UK

    We got married in February because it was the first available Saturday at our chosen venue, which still allowed us enough time for planning. It wasn’t deliberate, but neither of us like hot weather anyway.

    As luck would have it, we had a gorgeous sunny day, cold but dry. The weekend before was torrential rain and the weekend after was heavy snow, so we timed it really well!

    • Wedding: August 2019

    We’re getting married in summer. The only requirement as far as season was that it wasn’t in winter or very late fall/very early spring, because then the weather in our area is just too unpredictable. We wanted to avoid there being a winter storm that kept everyone from being able to make it to our wedding.

    We got engaged at the end of September 2018, and we wanted to get married in 2019. We felt like spring 2019 would be too soon for us to plan, and we were open to summer 2019 but didn’t hold out much hope for availability then. So we decided on early fall 2019. We found a venue that had availability then, and as we were booking them they mentioned they had a date open in August, so we figured, why not?

    I had always wanted to get married outside, so summer was the best option for us 🙂

    We chose winter so we could have a giant ski party! We lucked out with mid 40s during the day & then a huge snow storm came in for the reception. 

    And for pics like this,

    We wanted an outdoor wedding but we both hate hot weather. So we went with Fall. It’s also both of our favorite season

    We are getting married in March, so technically Spring but it still counted as ‘winter pricing’ with our venue, so that certainly wasn’t a bad thing. Both of us hate being hot, so summer was out. My job is very busy when wedding season is at its peak, so didn’t want to do late Spring/Fall either. Middle of the winter we were worried about potential bad weather, so we felt like this was the best option all the way around. Weather is really so unpredictable all year round, but we were comfortable with March. It’s also our dating anniversary month which was a bonus! 🙂

    dylanswifey :  I reeeeally wanted a winter wedding so I’m super jealous! We ended up picking spring because we wanted to have our wedding on our anniversary. Plus we got engaged in May so it would have been more difficult to plan the wedding we wanted in a shorter time period.

    dylanswifey :  We got married in March.

    pricing was a big factor (chose “off season”) and we wanted to stay away from the holidays as it is hard for people to travel (myself included) and I wanted to stay away from the hot summer (melting make up and sweaty guests lol) since our venue was outdoors. 

    Weather was fine but the wind picked up right before the ceremony.

    • Wedding: September 2020 - Summer Camp!

    We decided in fall because the weather was likely to be the best with a lower risk of rain compared to spring. Plus the venue I loved didn’t have spring available.

    • Wedding: August 2019 - City, State

    dylanswifey :  Initially I wanted a September wedding, as I figure it would be a little cooler, but still ncie enough to have an outdoor ceremony. An outdoor ceremony was a very important item for me. Something I would not budge on.

    I also thought September would be great because it would be ‘off season’ for weddings. However, once I started looking into things, September became impractical. It was no longer considered off season and most venues I was looking at were already booked for the following year even though it was only February!

    So then I started looking at July. However, that was impractical for a number of my guests and some close family that had just moved out of country. They only intended to come back once a year and did not want to come back in the height of summer from their new beachfront home.

    So, after much deliberation, and me being really pick with the specific date (I wated a double digit date between 13-29, so there would never be day/month mixups when writing the date down. weird, I know)

    So after looking at all the weekends and dates that worked for us and family, we finally decided on August 17, 2019!
