May is a great month for a wedding

May is a great month for a wedding whether you are a Royal or not.

The royal family have confirmed that Princess Beatrice like her cousin Prince Harry before her, has chosen May as the month in which she will marry. So with this month proving popular a reportedly over 11% of couples choosing May as the month for their special day. It is interesting to understand why May is a great month for a wedding .

Firstly, whilst technically still spring the weather historically is kinder to those getting wed in May compared to the showers of April. The average temperature normally also rises at the time of year but not to the sometimes-stifling heat of high summer. This is a good advantage for food flowers and guests.

May is a great month for a wedding as it is pre high summer when many guests are not away on their annual holiday. Months such as July August ca be difficult to plan with many people away. On a similar theme a May is a great month for a wedding as there tends to be 2 bank holidays in the month which may mean it is easier to accommodate travel ,  a two day celebration or perhaps having a wedding on a different day than the popular Saturday .  

Saturdays have historically been the most popular day and tend therefore to attract a premium rate. If you are able to choose a different day then then the cost may be cheaper. Similarly, as May is not seen as a premium month certain dates may attract some great value wedding packages. Lastly may is a great month for a wedding, is not the most popular month for weddings, you are less likely to clash with another couple that have chosen May for their special day. To that end you are also more likely to get the venue, florist and entertainment etc you prefer.
