The truth is that choosing what month to get married is always a personal choice. And each season in New York has something totally different, unique, and beautiful to offer when it comes to wedding photography. However, we’re here to help you. Let’s start this journey and see what it is like to get married in New York City season by season.
Spring Weddings in New York: March, April, May
There is something magical about spring in New York. This is the season when the snow melts, the temperatures rise, the birds sing, and the flowers blossom…Awesome! In our opinion, the cotton candy cherry blossoms (that are in peak bloom in late March and early April) are the perfect romantic backdrop to get married in New York. Spring is all about fresh, new, and rejuvenation, so what better time for a couple to tie the knot and start their forever together?
The only holidays in the spring are St. Patrick’s Day, Passover, and Easter, so there aren’t many calendar conflicts.
Summer Weddings in New York: June, July, August
It’s no secret that summer in New York is hot and humid. With temperatures reaching upwards of 100+ Fahrenheit, an outdoor wedding ceremony can get pretty sizzling. However, the warm summer nights definitely make up for it. June is traditionally the most popular wedding month, so keep in mind that prices will be at a premium and you will need to book your venue and vendors far in advance.
Most people vacation in the summer due to more relaxed work schedules and school breaks so many of your guests will be able to attend your wedding, but it’s important to send out the invites early to avoid a lot of vacation plans and other wedding conflicts.
Fall Weddings in New York: September, October, November
Fall is a good choice for brides that wish to get married in New York. The leaves change, there are beautiful autumn colors, and the air is cool and crisp…. In addition, Fall foliage makes for a gorgeous wedding backdrop, especially with the golden light. It can get a bit chilly, so layers are the key.
September and October are both very busy months for weddings so make sure to plan ahead. Fall is also the beginning of a new school year, Halloween, and Thanksgiving, so there are a few more calendar conflicts.
Winter Weddings in New York: December, January, February
Winter weddings in New York can be especially beautiful with the snow, lights, and cheerful spirit. New York is so festive in wintertime and there’s something magical about cozy indoor weddings in the coldest months of the year. A huge upside to winter weddings is that it is a slow season so there is less competition and prices can be lower.
Christmas, Hanukkah, New Years, and Valentine’s Day all fall in the wintertime, so you might run into more calendar conflicts during these months.
In New York, there’s a perfect season for everyone to get married! You can’t go wrong. Securing your wedding date is one step closer to the big day of your dreams!
