I always wanted to do it in the winter but my future fiancé is from Ireland and the guests will be comprised of 80-90 percent his family, so we are doing it over there (we live in the states.) They don’t really get snow but the roads are primitive most places and they have issues with ice sometimes so he’s expressed winter might not work. Sucks cause I still wanted to squeeze in a wedding in 2020 if we get engaged no later than June of this year! We’ll see! 😊

 

ETA: honeymoon will be somewhere in Europe cause we’ll already be there lol. Maybe Italy? Not sure! I’m more of a museum/restaurant/shops kind of gal than beaches and stuff so that’ll be a factor.

  • Wedding: November 2014

I’m already married, but my ideal season was fall, and that’s what I picked. However, I live in Mississippi, so weather doesn’t cool off until much later in the season. We got married the Saturday before Thanksgiving. I’m also a teacher, so I had a week off for the holiday, and my husband got 3 days off that week, so it made sense for us. We honeymooned at an all-inclusive in Jamaica for a week. It was perfect to be able to lounge around and relax after all the planning and running around for the wedding. Summer was the only season I refused to get married in though regardless of the convenience. It is way too hot here.

  • Wedding: June 2017

I am already married but we had our wedding during my ideal season, mid-summer as we wanted an outdoor daytime ceremony. If we ever planned an elaborate vow renewal, my second choice would be mid-winter in a (short) outdoor snowy ceremony! 

There are so many places which would be ideal for a honeymoon, but we chose Hawaii.

  • Wedding: August 2018

We got married in August, we live in the PNW so we only get a couple of months without the rain and wanted to do an outdoor ceremony. 

I really like the idea of having a nighttime ceremony at some sort of venue that over looks our city since it looks so pretty at night though, all lit up, which can only happen in the fall/winter so if we ever renewed vows or something I’d do that.

We spent a couple weeks in Europe and close to a week in Mexico a couple months before getting married so we went to New Orleans for a honeymoon which was a blast.

My ideal wedding would have been in the fall, Novermber-ish. Aside from Christmas, its it’s my favorite time of the year! But my for my actual wedding we had to factor in hurricane season, when school was still in, and my husbands vacation time. So May it was lol we got married inMexico, and stayed there for the honeymoon as well. I would have loved to gone to Turks and Caicos. Its top on my list!

courtney487 :  Spring or fall because of the temperature.

Summer = hot and sweaty

Winter = wear a jacket over your dresses. 

But i suppose it depends where you live.

  • Wedding: May 2020

I’ve always wanted a spring wedding. Thankfully my fiancé doesn’t care when we do it, so I picked early May since we’re in Virginia. I don’t want it to be too warm and that seems to be the best fit.
