    Summer is my favorite time of the year!  Plus I wanted an outdoor ceremony, and for people to be able to enjoy the weather.  Not to mention great outdoor pictures!  Plus, some of my bridesmaids are in high school, college, graduate school, law school, etc.  My date ensures that everyone will be out of school and free to have a great time!

    • Wedding: September 2009

    I think the fall is a perfect time. You tend to have better luck with weather, esp. in PA. We ended up choosing September 5 which is late summer leading into fall. It has been seriously hot here (90’s) but they say next week should be in the 70’s… PERFECT!

    Fall for sure.  I would love to be having ours in Sept or October.  Up here, those are practically the only months during the entire year that weather is almost guaranteed to be nice.  Every other season is kind of a nightmare 🙂

    i voted spring or fall because of the mild temperatures of both (i’m not engaged)  but i would probably do a fall or winter wedding because that’s my favorite time of the year.

    • Wedding: July 2009

    We got married in the mountains, so there’s a small window of opportunity when you can get married outside without snow!  That really narrowed down our choices.  I love snow, but we wanted everything to be as bright and green and non-rainy as possible, so the middle of summer in July it was!  We had amazing weather (high of 75 and sunny)…although apparently last year it snowed at our location on the Fourth of July, so we were never really “safe” from the snow!!  Secretly I was kind of hoping it would snow at our weddding…b/c how cool would that be?!

    • Wedding: April 2010

    I kinda cheated!  I picked both Spring and Fall.  Planning for Connecticut weather is a gamble at the best of times but Spring and Fall offer a slightly better chance of moderate temperatures and hopefully a lower risk of rain/snow/hail.  I picked April for our date because I didn’t want to wait until the Fall but I don’t think I would have chanced Winter or Summer – travel can be risky in winter weather and we’ll have lots of out-of-towners and extreme summer heat would not make me happy.  I am hoping there’s nothing extreme about our April date – I am okay with a little sun, a little rain, a little warm, a little cold.  How soon is too soon to check the Farmer’s Almanac!!???

    And color wise I love lots of color schemes so I wouldn’t feel too limited by season – there are so many gorgeous ideas out there for every time of year.

    Summer!  I dream of beaches, refreshing beer and iced tea, clambakes, and fireworks.  But I don’t think the Army will let us wait until next Summer (fingers crossed that they do!).  Looks like it will end up being sometime between Winter and Spring.

    I wanted a winter wedding so bad (looove long sleeve dresses), but the Chicago weather would have made it very likely that most of guests wouldn’t be able to make it, so now we’ve got Spring/Early Summer.  Not a bad runner-up, though.

    • Wedding: May 2010 - The Pierre Hotel

    I’m getting married in spring, but I would be happy with either spring or fall.  I love the flower options in spring, but fall has those vibrant colors and more dependable weather where I am.  Although my inspiration board is apparently very wintry (I just posted a thread about it), so maybe I love winter and don’t even know it!  Tongue out

    I love winter and I wanted an outdoor winter wedding if I had endless funds in order to rent heated everything so guests would be cozy. I always wanted to get married outside in the snow with a big furry shawl and a muff and a really cute furry hat.

    We picked fall, my mom begged me not to do it in the heat of summer or the potential bad weather of winter. I like fall too, it’s so pretty and nice and crisp!

    I voted fall even though I’m getting married in the spring. Fall is still my favorite season, it just wasn’t convenient to plan a wedding for fall 🙂 I’m happy with spring, though!
