June and October are the most popular months for weddings in Memphis and most other areas in the south. We can tell you right now, it has more to do with the weather than anything else. We thought we would explore a few of the things we know people take into consideration when leaning towards these months for their wedding.
The weather is most cooperative during these months. These are the months that you usually see people enjoying all types of festivities outside. Can I be honest about something? One thing that personally irritates me is having to handle a coat. I am so serious. Don’t get me wrong, I have some cute coats. I also love the winter simply because I am crazy about all things cozy. But if I have somewhere to go that has me getting dressed to the nines, I do not want to tussle with a coat. The same goes for the heat. I was born in August, the hottest month of the year. Do you know where you can find me for the majority of August (if I can have my way)? At home, in the AC. I sweat hard, so being at a function where all I have to do to start to sweat is stand is a no for me. Now I know this post is not about me. But let me tell you, I am not the only person that feels this way. Now imagine how many of your guests would agree with me. Heck, do you agree with me?
Outside is gorgeous in Memphis during the month of June and the month of October. Again, the weather is usually amazing and it feels great! Even if your wedding isn’t taking place outside, you can get some really beautiful photos during these months outside. It isn’t super hot, which means you aren’t shining from sweat and ruining all of the hard work of your glam squad. You also don’t have to worry about searching for sunlight with the overcast of cooler months.
With popularity comes competition. Not trying to scare you, but want you to be aware that if you are thinking about having a wedding during either of these months, you want to be sure to grab your vendors and venue pretty quickly. Venues and vendors in high demand will be retained pretty early on, so if you are interested you want to be sure you act fast.
Now we have a question and we want you to be honest. Would you have thought that June and October were the most popular wedding months in Memphis? Some people guess June, but are often super surprised by October. So, if you are in Memphis and interested in getting married in either of those months, you definitely want to jump on your wedding planning duties.
Until next time…
be sweet & happy planning!
