What Are the Best Seasons for Weddings in Ocala?

Autumn: A season of transformation, of lying back, of elegant movement. Summer: Blazing, brilliant, animated and brazen. Winter: Still, mysterious, serene, noble. Spring: A time for awakening, of new life, of blossoming, of unquenched youthfulness.

These are our seasons, the three-month stretches of time we have been using for millennia to mark nature’s dramatic presentations. And these are the periods in which we choose to get married (and it is here we explore the ideal season for weddings in Ocala).

While we at Golden Ocala Golf & Equestrian Club recognize the beauty and the awe of the wedding season, we also understand the importance of choosing the right time of year to best represent the tone and personality of a betrothal.

So, why are particular seasons chosen by people and what is the best time to hold a wedding?

Wedding planners recommend different seasons for different reasons, depending on couples’ desires, budgets and how they want their weddings to look, according to WeddingVendors.com:

  • Fall: This is the best time for color with the changing of leaves and the upcoming holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving. While the weather is generally cooler, couples may still hold weddings outdoors and receptions indoors.
  • Winter: This season is the least popular, but couples often choose this time for its proximity to the festive holidays like Christmas and New Year’s. While the cold and sometimes the snow may hamper guests and wedding parties, the stillness and clarity of winter are sometimes preferred.
  • Summer: This is the most popular season. Outdoor weddings are obviously so much easier to plan and brides can choose a variety of color themes without fear of the contrasts. Wedding settings are also more plentiful: the beach, the tropics, the country.
  • Spring: This season is the most ethereal, mixed with so much idealism and new life. Colors are most abundant as flowers blossom and the weather stays relatively cool so bridal parties need not fret about heat. For all of its wonder, spring can be the most capacious with its sudden showers and moody climate changes. Spring also offers the best choice to hold outdoor weddings.
