What time of year is best to marry?

If you're choosing a country in which to get married you really need to think about what the weather will be like when you want to exchange your vows. You don't want to end up getting married in the hurricane season, or want a summer wedding but choose a country where it's the rainy season in the summer months.

Below is a table showing the types of weather around the world. It should give you a good idea of when is the best time for you to arrange your wedding. Don't forget that we also have weather charts on each of our wedding country pages, just in case you'd like even more detail!
