5 Reasons Spring Is The New Wedding Season

Updated: Oct 14, 2021

After saying “YES!” the next big question a newly betrothed couple has to answer is, “When’s the big day?” June, July and August might get all the press, but spring is quickly asserting itself as a wedding season contender. While every season has its own charm—autumn weddings feature a gorgeous color palette and many winter brides say “I do” while a soft snow falls—there are hidden benefits to tying the knot in spring. So, before you order save the dates, discover what a spring wedding has to offer.

1. A spring wedding is easy on your wallet.

From your dress and the entertainment to favors and flowers, it’s no secret that weddings are bursting with expenses—why not save where you can? Summer weddings may be a popular choice, but with that comes competing with other brides for venues and often paying a premium during “peak” season. A spring wedding will give you greater date flexibility and can save you enough to get the cake you really want!

2. Spring is the Goldilocks of seasons.

Spring is one of the most temperate times of year: It’s not too warm or too cold—it’s just right, especially on Long Island. Late fall and winter weddings may see a reception filled with winter coats and visible shivers. Summer weddings are at the mercy of the sun, when temperatures in New York can skyrocket into the upper 90s and higher. Your wedding album may be filled with sunburns and running makeup.

3. Your “Regrets” pile will be much smaller.
