Your wedding day will be one of the most extraordinary experiences in the course of your life, ascending towards crowning your love with eternal devotion and adoration. Naturally, as such, you will want to realize your ethereal bridal vision and curate poetry in every single anxious emotion as you walk down the aisle. A great part of the wedding planning process will play the season in which you wish to tie the knot. The season will adorn your aesthetic and let you complete it with what you have envisioned. If you are planning a destination wedding in France, be certain that whatever month you pick, the breathtaking beauty of these lands and ambiance will let you paint your own dream most beautifully. The one thing you need to take heed of is your own preferences and wishes. That being said, let us go over some aspects of celebrating in certain periods and discover which is the best season to get married in France.
Generally, the most popular period to have a France wedding is during Springtime, Summer, and Autumn. That doesn’t mean that Winter is less whimsical or breathtaking, on the contrary, if you are planning a cozy indoor French chateau wedding, the Christmas period is especially magical. Yet the most desired months are May, June, July, September and October. That primarily is tied with the pleasant weather and many opportunities concerning the decorations of your iconic day. In our opinion, if you are tailoring your destination wedding towards the weather conditions, the best months are from April to the beginning of August, and September to November.
When it comes to this season, especially in France, not only nature awakens but also romance itself. With the coming of the warmer weather blooms embellish the trees that mark a new beginning and infuse all of us with hope. Even though it can be quite chilly in April, there is a surreal charm that ignites affection and the desire to tie the knot during this period. From an aesthetic point of view, from May to June you will be able to use a plethora of spring blooms such as peonies who are poetic with their gentle ruffles and garden roses that are simply enchanting. The gardens are green and nature provides mesmerizing backdrops especially for a Paris wedding! You can work with your florist to curate sublime centerpieces and the floral aisle that will praise the beauty of spring and revival. Decorating possibilities are quite endless, that is why spring for many is the best season to get married in France.
It goes without saying that the Summer months are for many couples the holy trinity of loving celebrations – especially for an outdoor destination wedding in France. These months infuse the late evenings under the stars with a romantic atmosphere that is unparalleled and exceptional. The weather during this season is quite pleasant and embellished with many varieties of flowers. A word of caution though, it can get quite warm so curating a later timed ceremony outside would feel more appropriate for both you and your guests. Another option is to have your ceremony and reception inside with a choice to transfer outside as the sun weakens its grasp. We, personally, adore an outside ceremony and dinner for a French chateau wedding during those late hours of the day. The sophisticated poetry of such events is memorable and exceptional.
We would like to suggest avoiding mid-August as it will be hot in general and most of the people are taking vacations – including the restaurants and shops. That won’t be very convenient for your guests so if you are considering Summer as your best season to get married in France, we recommend to avoid mid-August if possible. Of course if you don’t have a choice, you’ll always find a solution. On another note, there will be fewer choices for florals since a lot of flower suppliers will be taking a vacation then. Nevertheless, our professionalism is our forte, so we will be able to curate bespoke floral artistry even then. We will further advise you not to choose delicate flowers because due to hot temperatures, they might lose their freshness and wane.
If you are planning a wedding in Paris during the Autumn period, you will feel a dreamy melancholic beauty that is hard to resist. Soft breeze whispering through fallen leaves and golden foliage stretching to cover the lands with its splendor. Ahh, Paris is gorgeous in Autumn! Also, there is a stunning medley of floral choices for your special day like roses, dahlias, and magnificent autumn flowers with rich tones. If your soul is drawn to this period and considers it to be the best season to get married in France, we can tell you that it will be divine. Usually, September is still hot so there will be beautiful transitioning flowers to portray your vision
France weddings can be whimsical during the winter period. Imagine a French chateau wedding reception, crackling of the fire, historical grandeur, and snowing outside. A fairytale celebration at its finest. December is enchanting if you love Christmas ambience as Paris will be decorated most quaintly. January, February, and March are cold but an indoor intimate celebration is delightful as in any other season. In contrast, during the Summer and Autumn period, we wholeheartedly recommend outdoor ceremonies and wonderful dinners with a chateau view, but during Winter you can tailor an intimate Parisian apartment dinner or a Museum ceremony for your Paris wedding. In that manner, you will achieve a chic ambiance infused with the authentic Parisian flair.
