If you haven't already decided on when you'd like to get
married, consider first the different months and seasons of
the year. Each month has its own qualities that can give your
wedding a special tone.
The late winter months of January and February are advantageous
because many sites and services are readily available. This
would be an optimal time to set a wedding at a quiet ski village
or even a warmer vacation spot that isn't so crowded during
the winter months. The time of New Year's resolutions is also
the perfect time for marriage vows and new commitment. If
you're thinking February, don't forget the most romantic wedding
date of them all: Valentine's Day!
Everyone knows that when spring comes, love is in the air.
Weddings in March, April, or May all show that. In March,
the weather bounces between winter and spring, resulting in
unpredictable rains and wind depending on your region.

while ushering in the year's prettiest flowers. May is very
similar to April but with better weather.
The most popular month to get married is June. In ancient
Rome, the month of June was named Juno, goddess of women and
Those who were married in her month she vowed to
protect. Another advantage of June is that in many areas it
is the first month of predictably nice weather. It is also
the month of roses, the most romantic flower.
June is a perfect
time for honeymoons for college-age newlyweds since most schools
end in June. One disadvantage of June weddings is that many
services such as wedding and reception locations, musicians,
florists, caterers, and clergy get booked quite early because
of the volume of June weddings.
Keep that in mind as you plan
early. June weddings often require extra planning because
of this, although it is worth it to get that beautiful wedding
you have always dreamed of.

areas, weddings in this month can be just as wonderful as

weddings that will almost always have good weather.
and August, it is easier for friends and family to get time
off to travel to your wedding while children are out of school.
Just remember to send out invitations earlier than usual for
these months as many families plan their own vacations during
September and October bring cooler weather, yet it is still
mild in many regions. Also, many parts of the country boast
these months as their most beautiful time of the year. The
colors are bright and warm, and couples can use the autumn
foliage or a harvest motif as part of their reception atmosphere.
Travel plans are also easier to make and honeymoon destinations
are less crowded this time of year than in the summer months
as family vacations end and school starts.
As planning and services go, November is the easiest time
to book wedding locations, musicians, caterers, and florists
because so few couples marry during this month. Those who
run these services will be happy to spend more time with you
than in other busier months, helping you create a magnificent
wedding and reception.
December is a favorite wedding month for obvious reasons.
The beautiful white snow, the smells of cinnamon and pine,
and of course, mistletoe are all romantic accents to a cozy

in a hotel or restaurant, many are already decorated for the
season, which can save you money if you like the look of it.
