The past few years weather patterns have been shifting. Everyone knows about global climate change and how we need to help our planet to really help ourselves. Since weather has a huge impact on our wedding days we of course really know the ideal months to have a wedding. Are you ready for this? The best month to have a wedding is September, NOT June. It seems unlikely because college students and kids go back to school, people are snapping out of vacation mode and it's a busy time of year all around. The weather though, is pretty unbeatable. The last couple of years we've noticed that June has been one of the most unpredictable when it comes to weather. We've had years where Spring started late and there was a high chance of rain - making us use the backup indoor plan for ceremony and pictures. We've also had some years where there was barely a Spring and June felt like it was August with heavy heat and humidity. The heat makes picture taking quite the challenge. Between getting everyone waters (we lug around a cooler on those days), dabbing the sweat off a Bride's face in between pictures, and literally going under her heavy dress with a paper fan to try to cool her off - it's not a pleasant experience for anyone. With September you kind of get the best of both worlds between Summer and Fall. Think of it as an Indian Summer, if you will. The sun is still shining and it's still hot but with a the slightest crisp feeling in the air - in other words JUST PERFECT. If you're lucky you may even start seeing some colorful foliage in late September which makes for breathtaking photos.
You heard it here first folks: September is the new June!
