The Triangle is a very seasonal area—the summers are hot and humid while the winters are cold and dry. Late spring or early fall is a promising time to host your wedding so you can avoid any uncomfortable conditions that could throw your day off track. While the summers can get hot, it’s still a popular season to wed when planned correctly. Having an indoor option or a shaded area is key for those outdoor weddings. Banking on an indoor event? Winter weddings are beautiful in the Triangle. If you’re hoping for snow, January or February is your best bet!
No matter your wedding theme, adding the Triangle touch will truly take it to the next level. Whether it’s the charm, the traditions or the tasty food, (sorry we can’t get enough of it) it is certain to be a crowd pleaser and a night you won’t forget.
