    • Wedding: September 2009 - City Hall

    I’d love to do winter, but…

    Winter is very unpredictable where we live. It can be a snow storm, or it can just be bitter, bitter cold (the first week of january it was in the negative 30s; today it’s -15…. We don’t want out-of-town guests to die, nor do I want to get married in my ankle-length parka and sorels.

    Summer’s really the only good time for us anyway, as we’re both in degree programs that keep us well occupied the rest of the year. Plus a lot of our friends/family are teachers or children who have school.

    Purely scheduling. We were going to do Fall (his August break between semesters), but his sister "officially" got engaged first and chose the weekend before the only one he could do due to school, so we had to switch to Spring (his May break between semesters). This is fine by me, though–the sooner the better. Either way, we were doing Asheville, NC, which is just as pretty and temperate in Spring as Fall.

    Summer.  Both of our moms and two of my bridesmaids are teachers.

    That beautiful time in early September when the nights are cooler but the days are warm and the air is clear and smells like change.

    We were originally thinking Sept, but we ran into the same problem with FI’s family having a lot of teachers – so we went with July instead

    We got engaged in November and fall was the soonest we could do it with schedules etc. We just want to get hitched already!

    I’m a Boston girl, but RI bride, I chose fall because I like the weather and temperature best. There are also less tourists in the area we are getting married in the fall.

    Spring for me, cause my fiancee is MISERABLE when he’s overheated, and wearing a tux in the summer would lead to a sweaty, whining, grumpy groom!

    i’m a teacher so it worked out best to have ours in the summer. however, we had it early in the summer since we didn’t want it to be too hot. our wedding was outside.

    winter because we didn’t want to have a long engagement.  it actually worked out because we didn’t really have to compete for any vendors since it was off season.

    if i could do it again?  i’d be a fall bride.
