If you’re newly engaged, choosing the perfect wedding date is probably on the forefront of your mind. Before you break out the calendar, the phone, your astrological chart and whatever else you need, we recommend giving serious thought to which of the four seasons you want to get married in.

NYC wedding planning is greatly affected by the time of year that a couple chooses to wed. Brides who want to walk down a grassy aisle wearing a flower crown will most likely choose a date in the spring or summer. On the other hand, weddings in the fall and winter are ideal for couples that want to exchange vows by candlelight.


Spring is a popular season for weddings, and there are many good reasons for this. With flowers blooming everywhere, it’s easy to find a picture-perfect outdoor venue, and floral arrangements will be more affordable. There are also fewer conflicting holidays in spring than in other seasons, so picking a weekend date is easier between April and June.


Summer is another popular wedding season for couples that want to plan an outdoor wedding full of flowers and pastels. There’s less chance of rain during the summer months, so you won’t have to hang on the weatherman’s every word a week before your big day. Just remember to book your wedding venue early, as many couples get married in the summertime.


If you think piles of colorful leaves are just as beautiful as trees full of white blossoms, you may want to consider a fall wedding. At an elegant venue like The J Room, guests could enjoy warm spiced apple cider at tables adorned with pumpkins and maple leaves. Remember that there are many holidays in fall, so plan around them or incorporate them into your celebration.


The early nights of winter can be the perfect time to celebrate a cozy indoor wedding with your close friends and family. A ceremony and reception could be held at the Flatiron Penthouse, where guests can mingle beside the fireplace and look out over the city on the rooftop terrace. If you get married in winter, your wedding will be the highlight of the season and not just one of many nuptials.
