Amongst all the other planning and decision-making you have to do for your wedding, deciding when the best season for you to get married is crucial. Whether you want to see your wedding venue surrounded by snow or covered in autumn leaves, choosing your favourite time of year is very important and can even say something about the whole atmosphere of your wedding.
With the month of spring being about rebirth, what better time of year to start your new married life with your other half? With the weather remaining at a steady temperature which is not too hot or too cold at this time of year, you don’t have to accommodate for a sweltering heat wave.
Flowers will be growing everywhere, so you could integrate them into your wedding, and surround your special day with fresh smelling flowers. Alternatively, if you have a specific favourite, you could decorate your reception with that flower. By having lots of flowers, it represents a fresh new love between you and your other half.
Having your wedding during one of the summer months means that the days will be longer for you to celebrate in. If you are someone who enjoys spending time in the sun, this is the best time of year for you to get married in. Although you can pretty much guarantee warm weather during these months, weddings do tend to be more expensive in the summer, due to their high popularity.
Due to the warm, summer heat, your guests will be happy soaking up the sun, particularly if your venue offers an outside terrace. With no mud to ruin the mood, there is less chance of the wedding dress or suits getting ruined.
As a bride or even a groom, you may be a fan of vibrant shades of red, brown, orange and yellow, which fall from autumn. If a more rustic-style wedding is what you dream of, then September through to November are the months for you. Although the chance of rainfall increases during this season, you could have your dream wedding at a much cheaper price.
Why not get married in a country house with a fire crackling inside?Here, your wedding photos can be taken in the grounds surrounded by the colourful leaves all around you, followed by hearty, warming food served at your reception.
What’s more, arriving in style with a smart horse and carriage will look stunning against the fallen, colourful leaves and make for some very romantic pictures for the album.
Many couples dream of a white wedding, a magical winter wonderland – what could be more romantic? Even though the chances of it snowing when you want it to are rather slim in the UK, frost is likely to make an appearance outside during the winter months while you warm yourself up inside your beautiful venue.
A frosty backdrop will look stunning with fairy lights for your wedding pictures that you will cherish forever. With December being one of the months that falls in winter, you could even intertwine a Christmas theme into the wedding, if you are a Christmas fan. Mulled wine, mistletoe, hand and ear muffs, would fit in nicely with a wedding in the winter months.
Due to the days being shorter and colder, it gives you the opportunity to enjoy your wedding venue to its full potential, so choose an interior that takes your breath away.
All of these seasons provide a different piece of magic to your wedding, from the fresh spring to the frosty winter. Each brings a special element and a unique atmosphere. Choose your venue wisely to fit well with your chosen season and your dream theme.
