    • Wedding: October 2010 - The Pearl S. Buck House

    I think October is the new June. When we were meeting with vendors they all said October books up quickly! They’re definitely catching on =)

    I totally agree with @thimble–most vendors said September and early October are just as popular, if not more so, than May/June!

    Yes yes, especially here – June is time for 100F days, definitely not outdoor ceremonies.  When I booked my venue for Sept. next year, the manager said that Sept. is June for California brides.

    Unfortunately, August is the only time that works with my schedule (and then, just barely. Worst case senerio, I may have to fly out the morning after my wedding for a business trip) 🙁 I really wanted a winter wedding!

    My reception venue told me they fill up in October before they fill up in August. Off season here seems to be Nov-April

    We’re getting married in August…  but I see sooo many October brides in forums!  It may well be the next “June”!

    Our wedding season is May – early November. I would have preferred Sept/Oct because it is cooler then, but I couldn’t do it with us both in graduate school. Of season here is because of the rough winters.. December through March.

    I’m not sure it’s just because it’s the off season that people are going with fall months. I think the popular wedding months are just shifting with time. I have two cousins getting married next year and they are both doing the fall because it’s a beautiful season. I myself wanted a fall wedding but settled for late April for a number of reasons.

    1. this fall is too close and fall 2011 is too far

    2. April 29th is on the verge of May so it is still off season but there’s a good possiblity that it’ll be pleasant out. (plus we also got the friday discount on top of off season discount)

    I also agree that vendors are so shifting with the wedding months accordingly. That’s just the way it goes I suppose. I am interested to see the out come of your poll when more people join in.

    My fiance really wanted a September wedding which apparently he thought was very unique – he didn’t want a May or June wedding at ALL because he thought that was overdone (despite us having only gone to 1 wedding in those months).  Oops.  And, yeah, it’s definitely a common month for northern California because it’s generally the best month weather-wise.

    Fall has been pretty popular the past few years! I think this year 10-10-10 will be a popular day!

    Also this October is probably a little more popular because of the 10-10-10 date. For some reason those dates are popular ones.

    I’m feeling a bit like a slacker reading about how some of you have really thought out your dates even considering the season (weather- and wedding-wise). I picked May 7 because it is our anniversary date and it just happen to fall on a Saturday next year. Also because I had enough trouble remembering our anniversary date, the last thing I wanted was to remember another date. I live in coastal Southern California so weather isn’t too much a factor. Now that I am in the thick of planning I am beginning to realize that May is a difficult month to be married. The deadlines are earlier (alterations, fittings, catering, etc.) because the month is expected to be busy. It is also a bit more expensive, or that could be weddings in general.

    We definitely found truth in the “October is the new June” mantra when we were looking at venues.  It seems that the order of popularity (at least where we were looking) is now:

    1. October
    2. June
    3. September
    4. May

    January, February, and August were the least popular.
