Why you Should Get Married in Minnesota during the Summer

Summertime is hands down the best season to tie the knot and celebrate the union of marriage with your loved ones. Minnesota and the summer season calls for the perfect marriage ceremony and reception (If you have not checked out our top choices for Minnesota Wedding Venues, click here).  D’Arienzo Psychology wants to help you prepare for your Minnesota wedding. In this article, we compiled the top reasons why we think you should tie the knot during the Minnesota summer.

1. More Flexibility

During the peak wedding season, vendors are busy. Not only are vendors busy, but family members are too. The summer season allows for vendors and family to have more flexibility for your big day. Wedding vendors will be more readily available to correspond with you over phone or in person to ensure that everything is squared away for your wedding. The flexible nature of the summer season will work wonders relieving some of that wedding-related stress.

2. More Wedding Attendance

A wedding is so special because it brings together different people that are special in you and your partner’s lives. The odds are, some of the people that you are inviting live out of town. Your loved ones are more likely to attend your special day if you plan for the summer season. Your family and friends are more likely to have more availability and vacation time during the summer.

3. Outdoor Weddings Options

Many of the most popular Minnesota wedding venues, like stonewall farms and Mill City Museum are outdoor venues. Summer calls for some of the most beautiful outdoor wedding venue options. You can opt for an evening ceremony and reception if you are worried about the summer heat. The temperatures become much more comfortable toward the end of the day and wedding during sunset is unbelievably breathtaking.

4. More Color Scheme Options

A summertime wedding is perfect for you if you do not want to limit your color scheme possibilities. The color scheme that you choose makes up a huge part of the wedding planning process. Most colors are fair game in summer! Phew, that is one less thing for you to stress about. Check out the Knot’s favorite versatile wedding color schemes here. 

5. Best Time for a Destination Wedding

Are you thinking about a destination wedding? Not only is Minnesota a beautiful place to host your wedding, but the summertime is the best time to do so. As we mentioned before, summer is a flexible season for your loved ones to attend your wedding. Look no further than Minnesota if you want a destination wedding.

6. More Flower Choices

During summer the most popular wedding flowers are in full bloom. This means that you will have access to your dream flower arrangements. More flower choices also mean that you will have more budget options to decrease some of those hefty wedding costs (Flowers are a large part of a wedding budget!)

7. Easier Travel

As we discussed, you may want to invite out-of-town family and friends to your big day. Summer does not have as many travel limitations. There will not be any snow/sleet issues or as many flight delays during the summer season. There are already so many things for you to worry about, travel should not be one of them!
