Choosing the date for your wedding is very exciting, but before you confirm anything there are many things to consider when it comes to the season of your wedding. You will need to settle on a season so that it fits all your needs as it could have a major impact on your wedding day.
Bridal Guide says, “The most popular months to get married are June, September, and October and it’s no surprise why — the weather is absolutely beautiful in early summer and fall. In general, you can plan for weather based on past records and standards, but always remember to continue to track it throughout your planning process as well.”
There are so many pros towards a summer wedding, as this is the time of year when the weather is good (hopefully) and the days are long with daylight lasting late into the evening, it is no wonder summer is the most popular season to marry in, with June a particular favourite month to get wed. If you are planning an outdoor wedding, summer is probably the best season for you. In summer, floral availability is in abundance – which will give you more choice of flowers to fit your colour scheme.
Autumn is a beautiful season to marry. The amazing autumnal colours and soft light of the season create an amazing setting to your wedding photography. The weather in Autumn is cooler, with pleasantly warm days making it still possible to have an outdoor event. If you are looking for a deeper colour scheme with soft romantic hues, this season will be perfect for you.
Autumn produces colours of gold, dark red, orange, and green which look amazing as a backdrop to your venue and bring nature indoors with natural foliage, pinecones and acorns to decorate. Late September and October are the most popular time in Autumn to marry, with rustic themed weddings being a favourite.
Winter weddings are surprisingly popular considering the unpredictable weather of the season. December is one of the most popular months of the year for a wedding, usually around Christmas. If you love the idea of fresh snowfall, crackling log fires, romantic candlelight, hot cocoa bars, and comfort food – a cosy winter wedding could be right up your street!
Bold colour shades of golds, reds and greens look beautiful and festive in the midst of winter. This time of year, wedding vendors are less likely to be booked up and there could also be some great deals to be made because of the low season.
The natural beauty of spring is romantic in itself, making it a popular time of year to get married. Trees full of cherry blossom, everything is in bloom and the weather is getting warmer, spring is the ideal backdrop to your wedding photography. If you want a soft pastel and neutral shade palette for your wedding colour scheme, this is the perfect season for you.
April and May are the two favourite months for weddings. Spring weddings need plenty of planning as it is such a popular season, vendors get booked up well in advance, trying to plan a spring wedding at short notice may leave you floundering for suppliers.
