It’s common knowledge that one of the first decisions that needs to be made concerning your wedding is the date. Once you choose a date—or at least your preferred time of year—you can book the venue, find a photographer, plan the décor, and take care of everything else you need to create your dream wedding!
If you’re struggling to determine which season will be the most ideal for the celebration you have in mind, we’ve got you covered. Take a look at the major perks you can expect from a wedding in each of the four seasons, so you can confidently narrow it down to the right one for you and your partner!
Ah, spring! The season of rebirth and new beginnings. The birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and romance is in the air.
Vibrant, blossoming flowers, freshly budding trees, and flawless natural lighting make spring a top contender for a lot of weddings. The sun is out but there’s enough cloud coverage to keep it from blinding your guests and washing out your photos. Take advantage of the full bloom by opting for a pastel, earthy color scheme!
As an added bonus, it's not football season! If you live in an area with die-hard football fans or have a heavy population of them among your friends and family, it can be a challenge to avoid big game weekends. That's something you won't have to worry about in the spring!
The long, beautiful days of summer make this season the most popular time for a wedding! You have plenty of daylight and sunny weather to work with, giving you the opportunity to be flexible with your ceremony time and venue.
Everything is in season during summer, so you’ll likely be able to find whichever flowers and tasty treats satisfy your heart’s deepest desire. There are a ton of color options to play around with and the style of your dress will know no bounds!
The stunning autumnal foliage that comes with cooler temperatures will provide a breathtaking backdrop for your photos and the ceremony itself. If you envision a wedding filled with bold, rich, and romantic colors, then fall is the season for you! With its deep reds, elegant golds, rich purples, and warm oranges, the seasonal hues will not disappoint.
Fall is also great for weddings because of its comfortable, flexible weather. The air is refreshingly crisp and cool, but your guests will still be kept warm by the afternoon sun! Daylight is ample and the atmosphere is ideal for both indoor and outdoor venues.
Many couples overlook winter as they make their plans, but the magic and joy this time of year brings out in the world can really make your wedding special! Plus, winter is the slowest time of year for weddings, which can translate to savings for you. A lot of venues have plenty of openings during off-season and will offer you discounted rates to fill them.
Say your vows during a cozy and romantic snowfall; take your pictures against an enchanted, snowy backdrop; and embrace the deep, jewel tones of the season with your color scheme. Get creative and watch your wedding turn into an unforgettable winter wonderland!
