According to The Knot’s Real Wedding Survey, June is the most popular month for weddings. For the rest of the country, outdoor weddings during summer months are extremely popular.
While The Knot unveils their “2013 Real Weddings Survey” captures detailed feedback on wedding budget, style preferences, event characteristics and other key information related to the bridal demographic, Arizona is clearly an exception to the June wedding stat.
When out-of-state visitors come to Phoenix, Scottsdale, Glendale or Tempe, they discover that our weather is good enough to “come back here to get married.”
Unlike parts of the United States in the Midwest and East, Arizona has two wedding seasons. When everyone there is having June weddings, I usually take some time off in June or July because most of my weddings are outdoors and those months are when things begin to heat up here in the desert. It’s summer and it’s the desert, however, when you plan your wedding for the warm early evening rather than the blaring mid-afternoon, the temperature change can make quite the difference. Grassy areas and tents can also make your outdoor wedding much more bearable.
Spring and Fall are prime times. We basically have two wedding seasons: March, April and May, and October, November and December. Weddings occur in other months too, however fewer weddings are scheduled during out hottest months; June, July and August. Most of those weddings are indoors. The greatest percentage of weddings are usually outdoors at resorts, hotels, and some in private home back yards.
A romantic wedding as the Arizona sun sets is an inspiration for you and your guests. Arizona is a very popular spot for destination weddings. It’s summer and it’s the desert, but if you plan your wedding for the warm early evening rather than the blaring mid-afternoon, the temperature change can make quite the difference. Grassy areas and tents can also make the desert sun much more bearable.
The Greater Phoenix area has more than 325 days of annual sunshine with an average high temperature of 86 degrees and an average low of 57 degrees. With only 7.66 to 8.32 inches of rain per year, our area offers an ideal setting for outdoor weddings.
