There are 12 months in a year. For those who are about to prepare for the wedding, they don’t know how to choose the right wedding month and can’t start with their wedding dresses. Don’t go away and continue reading on the Lalamira blog.
When is the wedding season?
Anwer 1: The US is a big country, so it depends upon the region. People get married year-round, but in some parts of the country (e.g., New England, the upper midwest, etc. where there is a winter) the most popular time to get married is during the warmer months. Late spring-fall is popular because the weather is better.
But if you live in a region that is prone to hurricanes, then getting married during hurricane season might not be as popular as another time of year.
If you live in southern California, then the weather is nice year-round.
And even in New England, plenty of people get married during the winter, some because the venues are cheaper, others because they want a winter wedding, etc.
Wedding season is 12 months per year.
Answer 2: In parts of the country that experience extreme winters, the deep winter months: January, February and March are the least popular for weddings.
In warmer parts of the country typically around coastal lines (FL, GA, NY etc…) June, August, September and October are the least popular due to the threat of tropical storms and hurricanes.
No matter where you reside, the “Wedding season” will be different. The important thing is to know your area and to consider the time of year when in-climate weather is most common. Avoid those times of the year altogether and you should be fine.
Answer 3: Depends on the location and if you want an outdoor setting. In Southern California business picks up in April and continues through October. Other areas might be limited by seasonal weather. Venue and service provider availability for June and October fills up quickly. Also, due to numerology and/or customs, certain dates book out fast.
Answer 4: June is the most popular month for weddings, but late Spring through Fall, when it’s warm and the foliage is in bloom, is most common.
Answer 5: In some parts (where there is winter) people prefer warmer months to get married and in some parts, they prefer romantic winter months to gets hitched.

Tips for Wedding Dress Shopping
#1. Make a Wedding Budget
Before you get carried away Pinning all those diamond-encrusted wedding dresses, take a look at your wedding budget and set a number you’re willing to spend on your gown. This will not only narrow your choices (such an endless amount of beautiful gowns out there!) but also help you hone your expectations in the wedding dress shopping process.
#2. Keep a Positive Attitude
The best things you can bring to your wedding dress shopping experience are positivity and perspective. And here are a few key reminders to help you keep those two in check:
You will probably feel terrible and ugly in at least one dress you try on. Don’t let it get you down.
You might fall in love with a dress that doesn’t look like anything on your Pinterest board. Just go with it!
#3. Start 9-12 Months Ahead
Believe it or not, wedding gowns typically take anywhere from 4-10 months to be made. Factor in shipping times alterations and multiple fittings – in the end, your gown could take up to 12 months to be ready.
Some designers offer rush services, but be prepared to pay an extra fee. If you’re happy to get a professional cleaning and are lucky enough to fit in sample sizes, salons often allow brides to buy samples off the rack for a lower price.
#4. Consider Your Honest Entourage
Of course moms/sisters/aunts etc. make for a great wedding dress shopping posse, but sometimes the people closest to us are more concerned with making us feel good than telling the truth. So consider bringing one of your bridesmaids (or your most brutally honest friend) to your appointment so they can help lift you up — while keeping it real. This trusted person will tell you if you look like a sparkly walrus in a dress and you’ll thank her for it later.
#5. Try on Different Gowns
It’s so helpful to know what you like, to narrow the gowns pulled at your dress appointment. But don’t be afraid to try on something totally out of the box.
For example, try on a gown that’s not white – maybe ivory, champagne, nude or even raincloud blue! You may be surprised to find out you like something different. I fell in love with a taupe colored gown and was totally surprised by how much a city girl like me loved twirling in a full skirt.
#6. Keep Your First Idea
Bridal stylists are super smart, and if they can tell you have a serious favorite during your salon walkthrough, they’ll likely put it on you first. Our experts say often brides think they are being too quick to decide, but then they come back to buy the first gown they loved anyway. So remember to keep the first idea for your wedding dress. When you went shopping I had been waiting for months to try on one particular dress from Lalamira designer. Maybe you kept your other appointments but the whole time you were ready to go back and buy the first wedding dress.
