@Jamcnair:  It should be. We’re going to FL (gulf coast) the week after our wedding. I’ve been to GA beaches in September a few times and it’s always been nice!

My friend honeymooned mid october in Indian Shores, FL just under Clearwater and it was warm enough for them.

I live in Florida, and it can be downright hot here in October. 🙂 You should be fine.

Moved to the Florida panhandle in Oct.  We could still go to the beach into Nov..it should be fine.

We are often in Myrtle Beach in October, and the weather is lovely… Stats say the average is 77 F for that month (Water temp = 72 F)

If that is warm enough for swimming, depends a lot on what you are used to… coming from Canada this is just like JULY for us up here

The further south you go, the warmer it will be in October… Florida would be awesome.

NOTE though that this is still Hurricane Season (and BIG Storms do happen in October… but they are more prone to effect the Western Caribbean, Mexico, The Keys etc that late in the season).  Overall, Hurricane Season runs from June 1st to December 1st, and one cannot really predict what will happen in any given year in regards to activity ahead of time.  Just something to be aware of if you are planning a Southern Wedding / Honeymoon

Went to the beach October 15th last year in New Smyrna, FL and we went in the water.  I was only visiting at the time.  My Fiance is from FL and said if I wanted my family to enjoy their time down here , they were coming from out of town, and be able to get in the water still, we had to get married in March or October.

I’m getting married on October 20th too!  We are hoping to do the ceremony outside. It’s typically beautiful here during October and then shooting off for a honeymoon right away 🙂
