What’s The Best Wedding Season to Get Married In?

A sunny beach. Colourful leaves. Pristine white snow. Fresh garden blooms.

Each of the seasons has its own unique charm. So, deciding whether to get married in the winter, spring, summer, or fall can be confusing. What should be your basis for deciding the best season to get married in?

It depends on what your priorities are. Check out this guide to figure out which wedding season would be the best fit for you!

The Perks of Getting Married in the WINTER

If you want to begin your happily ever after in a winter wonderland, then here are a bunch of other reasons you should go for it!

The Gorgeous Backdrop of Snowfall

Sure, the weather might not be ideal, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a gorgeous winter wedding. If anything, nothing says “dreamy” better than fresh snowfall. And just about any colour palette pops against pristine white snow!

Heartwarming Winter Produce

You can also take advantage of winter produce such as brussel sprouts, squash, and figs and serve the coziest, heartiest comfort food that reflects the cold season. Think of hot cocoa, mulled wine, winter greens, grilled cheese, and tomato soup!

Magical and Cozy Wedding Decor

What about decorations? Some might think winter is limiting when it comes to decorations. But all it takes is a bit of creativity and some out-of-the-box thinking. You can use candles, fireplaces, and dimmed lights to create a romantic ambiance. 

SUMMER is the Wedding Season for Couples Craving A Kaleidoscope of Options

Variety is what makes summer weddings special. There are plenty of choices when it comes to, well, everything.

Extended Fun in the Sun

You can opt for an indoor wedding or take your guests outside. Because the days are longer you can have an extended celebration without worrying about cold temperatures.

Extensive Flower Selections

Unlike in winter, when the availability of flowers is limited, you have a larger flower selection in the summer: magnolias, gardenias, freesias, irises, orchids, and dahlias, among others. 

Abundant Summer Produce

Summer produce is aplenty too. There are strawberries, cherries, peaches, asparagus, mushrooms, and more which you can use to elevate your wedding menu

Sunshine, Blue Skies, and Bright Greens to Complement Colourful Themes

Are you a lover of bright, cheerful colours? If you are, then summer might just be the most suitable wedding season for you. Unlike the colours of winter which are subdued, summer offers plenty of sunshine, blue skies, and bright greens. 

You can decorate your venue with lively colours, and your entire crew can wear bright hues without worrying if they look right for the season or not—because they simply are!

More Honeymoon Options

You also have more honeymoon options (by the beach, swimming pool, or resort) when you decide to tie the knot in the summer!

But, Be Ready For Higher Prices and Summer Weather Effects

These are some of the reasons why summer is the most popular wedding season. And you know what that means—it’s also more expensive to get married in the summer. 

Not that summer days are always perfect. There’s still the heat, bugs, and occasional showers you have to watch out for. But overall, if the varied options are what you’re after, then summer is the best wedding season for you.

Choose AUTUMN for That Cozy Wedding Season Vibe

So, when should your wedding season compass point toward autumn? Find out all the reasons below.

Comfortable Weather

With an autumn wedding you can get the best of both worlds—warm days, and cool nights, all without having to worry about the bugs, running makeup, or clothes sticking to your skin because of the intense heat. The temperature’s not too cold for a backless or sleeveless gown either. Generally, the weather is just more dependable.

Deeper Colour Schemes

Do you prefer a deeper colour scheme? Consider it done! If you’re into burnt orange, chocolate brown, bronze, deep purple, and vibrant red colours, then they’ll all perfectly complement the natural colours of autumn.

Rich Food Choices

The food is as colourful and as rich as the season too. Think apples, pears, sweet potatoes, broccoli, rhubarb, quince, and more. Fall wedding menus also tends to gravitate towards richer sauces and more yams and chutneys.

Venue Flexibility

The flexibility of getting married in the fall is endless: an indoor or outdoor setting, beautiful autumnal flowers or more foliage in your bouquets, and a more cozy texture like wool in linens and table covers, not just cotton or polyester.

The problem is, if you don’t book an indoor venue in advance, you might have trouble finding a spot because a lot of people seem to have the same idea. 

Let Your Wedding Unfold In Full Bloom During The SPRING

Spring weddings are for couples leaning toward whimsical setups, a more romantic atmosphere, and a unique fragrance in the air. If spring in full bloom makes your heart flutter, then here are more reasons this should be your wedding season!

Garden of Your Dreams

Spring is an amazing time to tie the knot if you’ve been dreaming of getting married amidst a garden of hyacinths, poppies, tulips, forsythia, pansies, violas, and other spring-blooming flowers. 

Combine them with DIY flower crowns, table settings filled with romantic details, and soft pastel hues and you’re sure to get stunning wedding pictures as a result. 

Off-Peak Wedding Season

Just like winter, spring is also considered by vendors as an off-peak wedding season. That means venues and wedding packages come at a discount. You can use the extra savings on something else, like serving additional dishes.

A Variety of Produce

Speaking of dishes, there is also a variety of produce you can work with to build your wedding menu: artichokes, avocados, cauliflowers, leeks, pistachios, and more. Your guests would surely appreciate being served a variety of refreshing, healthy salads too.
