Picking a wedding date can be the funniest part of your wedding planning process. If you're planning to say 'I Do' in 2025, then you have a variety of wedding dates that pair with fantastic holidays and celebrations to choose from. No date is a bad date to get married, but if you're hoping to find a date with special significance, explore our recommendations below.
January, named after Janus the Roman god of new beginnings, doorways, and passages is a great month to marry with its connection to the start of a new year. Begin 2025 right with cozy winter nuptials. Delight guests with a hot cocoa bar, fireplaces, and fabulous indoor ballrooms similar to that of Ken Caryl Vista by Wedgewood Weddings.
During this month blue, silver, and white delight wedding color palettes. Similarly, pairing burgundy, rose gold, and wintergreen together makes for a warm selection of colors that compliments the feel of the season.
In February 2025, the hottest wedding day will certainly be Valentine's Day as it falls on a Friday. Valentine's Day, the day of love, is always a popular choice, but with it occurring at the start of the weekend, it's certain to be a date that is picked up fast. Be sure to book your February 14 date before it's gone!
We also love February because you can still fulfill a winter wonderland-themed wedding or you can start enjoying the vibrant colors of spring. Pick up hues like white, blue, and silver for a winter wonderland theme, or go with vibrant pinks, reds, and purples of Valentine's Day for your wedding day colors.
There's so much to celebrate in March, if you're a genuine math nerd though you'll be happy to hear that Pi Day actually falls on a Friday in 2025. In addition, Friday, March 14 also has a full moon! Go all out for Pi Day with mini pies for guests, Pi cookie cutters as guest favors, and even Pi symbol accessories. On the coattails of spring, you can also delight your guests with a variety of different pie flavors and make the day one to remember.
With the first day of Spring on Thursday, March 20, it's easy to understand why March weddings have all of the beautiful spring colors added to their color palettes. Pink, purple, yellow, green, and blue are popular choices during this month and flowers such as yellow daffodils, purple irises, pink roses, and blue cornflower make great additions to a Spring bouquet.
HOLIDAYS: Shrove Tuesday/Mardis Gras (Tuesday, March 4); Daylight Savings Time (Sunday, March 9); Pi Day (Friday, March 14); Holi (Friday, March 14); St. Patrick's Day (Monday, March 17); First Day of Spring (Thursday, March 20)
LUCKY DAYS: Wednesday, March 5; Thursday, March 6
CUTE DAYS: Friday, March 14 (3.14.25); Tuesday, March 25 (3.25.25)
FULL MOON: Friday, March 14
Go all out for Pi Day with pies and cakes for guests.
Spring is in full force come April and this is the time when our weddings are usually ramping up for the season. With green starting to come out in the surrounding scenery and flowers in bloom, alfresco celebrations are a must in the Spring and Summer months. With the lush greenery around, we find many couples let the beauty of their surroundings guide their wedding décor with more ethereal designs. Embrace beautiful nature views at venues like Hacienda de las Flores and add all of your favorite florals to your décor.
Are you a big fan of Earth Day? Embrace eco-friendly celebrations on your special day with take-home plant favors, renting décor and equipment (we've got you covered there!), and eco-friendly aisle toss options like flower petals from recycled kraft paper bags. When it comes to renting décor and equipment, as we mentioned a moment ago, we provide all linens, tables, silverware, etc. for you so you don't have to worry about spending loads of money on items that would only be used once.
May is another beautiful month for our outdoor properties where the natural surroundings really do all the talking. Venues like Bel Vino Winery by Wedgewood Weddings in Temecula, California provide beautiful outdoor views and a perfect space for a Springtime wedding.
No date is a bad date in the month of May, but if you're looking to do some extra celebrating this month, try and book your wedding for Memorial Day weekend. These long weekends provide ample time to spend with family and friends with most companies providing that Monday off for their employees. Enjoy a rehearsal dinner on Friday (psst, ask us about rehearsal dinner options at one of our venues), marry on Saturday, and celebrate with your wedding party on Sunday before heading out for your Honeymoon.
Let's be honest, summer celebrations really kick off over Memorial Day weekend, so hosting a summer wedding is totally in the cards throughout the month of June. Summer weddings embrace the vibrant colors of spring combined with the warm tones of summer. Different shades of terracotta including pink, peach, green, and dusty blue are very popular during this month.
June is our most popular wedding month and with it also being Pride Month, it is a very favorable month for LGBTQ+ weddings. Love is love and we love to see the different weddings that occur during the month of June. From Zach & Karthik's Colorful Wedding at Jefferson Street Mansion to Kayla & Robin's beautiful wedding at The Retreat by Wedgewood Weddings, we've seen so many beautiful same-sex weddings and can't wait to see more. Let us help you start to plan your ceremony with our blog: Planning Your LGBTQ Wedding.
The warm days of summer are in full swing come the 4th of July and what better time to get married than with warm summer days and cool summer nights? Incorporate summer favorites like ice cream, popsicles, and watermelon into your wedding, or use them to inspire your overall theme. If you're going for a more classic look, light pinks, blues, and greens provide great color schemes to work with. Go for more breathable attire selections including mid-length spaghetti strap dresses, dress shirts with suspenders, and sandals. Additionally, keep long hair styled in an updo fashion for extra breathability. Your photos will thank you later on.
Go ahead and opt for a beer bar for your August nuptials because August 1 is International Beer Day! From craft to domestic, we have a wide variety of beer selections available for your wedding day. If you're a big beer lover, add a bit of extra love for your favorite hoppy brew with specialty pint glasses to have at your sweetheart table and custom beer cozies for your guests.
In addition to International Beer Day, August also celebrates National Dog Day. Bring your favorite pooch with you for your ceremony as your Dog of Honor and let them share in your special day with you. Go all out with super cute additions such as a mini tuxedo, custom color, or tutu. Check out Etsy for some super cute inspiration!
Onward to the start of fall, September starts to see a bit of a cool down and is another popular wedding month for many couples. With the long Labor Day weekend, take advantage of the holiday and marry at the end of August and take a few extra days to celebrate. If you're obsessed with all things chocolate, let International Chocolate Day inspire your mid-month festivities with a chocolate-covered cake, chocolate fondue fountain, and even chocolate favors for your guests.
If you get to plan a September date and find that all weekend afternoons are taken, go ahead and plan a brunch wedding! We've hosted many a brunch wedding and with National Pancake Day on Monday, September 26, this is a great time to enjoy a temperate outdoor wedding followed by all the flapjacks and bacon you can handle. You can also add on a Bloody Mary or Mimosa Bar to complete your brunchtime reception.
October officially kicks off the holiday season with Halloween at the end of the month. Go fall festive in October with orange, yellow, and red tones in your wedding color palette. If you celebrate Diwali, host your wedding near the middle of the month and delight with a variety of twinkle lights, and red and gold hues to kick off a Diwali-filled weekend.
October 2025 will also have the presence of a supermoon. If you feel a strong connection to influences such as the moon and the tide, then you'll be delighted to know that marrying under a supermoon will start your new marriage with great energy and will be blessed with balance from the moon.
The beauty of fall is in full force in the month of November and you're sure to enjoy beautiful weather, especially if you're marrying in Arizona, Nevada, or Southern California. If you're hoping to add some fall foliage to your wedding photos, head for slightly colder climates in Colorado, Northern California, and New Hampshire where yellow, orange, and red leaves can easily be seen.
November is another popular holiday month with Dia de Los Muertos, Veterans Day, and Thanksgiving occurring during this month. Weddings are great in the month of November as it adds to the wonderful family gatherings and celebrations. With many folks already planning to visit home during the Thanksgiving weekend, plan your wedding on November 28, 29, or 30th to include special relatives who live states away.
As 2025 wraps up, the month of December has a lot in store for holidays near the end of the month with Hanukkah starting on December 25 with Christmas. This provides many open dates for your nuptials. New Year's Eve is a popular wedding date for couples as they anticipate the start of the new year while December 12, 13, and 25 are fun dates to choose this month for their numerical power.
Keep with the feel of winter and New Year's with classic colors like gold, black, and white. The end of fall/start of winter is a great time to implement a rich color palette. Turquoise, raspberry, and marigold are fantastic tones to use during this month with your indoor ceremony and reception spaces.
