Top wedding destinations for outdoor weddings by month

You’ve decided to plan your wedding at a dreamy destination where you and your guests can relax and enjoy beautiful weather. When you plan a wedding in a warmer climate, you have to be concerned about extreme weather such as tropical storms, hurricanes and even hot weather advisories. You can’t control the weather, but you can choose the place and time of year that is more conducive to better conditions.

We’ve compiled a list of the most popular wedding destinations for outdoor weddings and which months are the best for weather, based on past climate data provided by the National Weather Service.

6 top wedding destinations and months with the best weather

1. Bahamas – November to April

2. Caribbean – December to May

3. Florida – March, April, October and November

4. Hawaii – March to July, October and November

5. Las Vegas – March, April, October and November

6. Mexico – October to May

Even with the best planning, extreme weather can still occur. Weddings can be a huge expense and purchasing event cancellation coverage can help protect you if the weather takes a major turn for the “worst.” Markel offers wedding cancellation insurance, which reimburses you for lost deposits and non-refundable amounts if you have to cancel or postpone your wedding due to extreme weather such as a hurricane or tropical storm. Coverage can be purchased anytime up to 14 days before your event, and policies start as low as $130

We hope this list helps you prepare and book the perfect destination for your special day.
