Mexico is a country renowned for its stunning landscapes, vibrant culture, and warm hospitality. It’s no wonder that many couples from all over the world choose to tie the knot in this beautiful destination. However, when it comes to selecting the best time of the year to get married in Mexico, there are several factors to consider, such as weather, budget, and personal preferences. In this article, we will explore the different seasons in Mexico and help you decide which one is the most suitable for your dream wedding.
The Romantic Winter Wedding (December – February)
Winter in Mexico is the perfect time for couples who appreciate cooler temperatures and a touch of magic in the air. It is the season of sunny days and cool evenings! The weather is relatively mild, making it ideal for beachfront weddings, especially in popular destinations like Bahia de Banderas. With clear skies and comfortable temperatures, you can enjoy your special day without worrying about sweltering heat. Just remember that winter is considered high season, so you may encounter higher prices for accommodations and services. Our recommendation avoid Christmas and New Year’s, as it is very crowded, and services are extremely expensive not only for the couple but for the guests as well.
Springtime Blossom (March – May)
Spring is the season of rebirth and new beginnings, making it a symbolic choice for weddings. The weather in Mexico during this time is pleasant, with warm days and comfortable evenings. It’s also an excellent season for outdoor weddings and garden ceremonies, as nature is in full bloom. Our recommendation is to avoid Semana Santa and Semana de Pascua, two weeks vacation in México.
Summer Love (June – August)
Summer is the most challenging time of the year, it is the beginning of rainy season. Unfortunately, some couples are restricted to these dates as it is the time frame their friends and families can get away. In that case, be prepared for rain from the beginning, and have a plan A and B at all times. Have a space in the budget for tents and make sure the dressing code is suitable for high temperatures and humidity. Try to keep your wedding small, it will be easier to handle under rain conditions. Make it fun, unformal and casual, do not expect and elegant blog type wedding =). Our recommendation, if summer is your only date, the first two weeks of June could be your best option.
Autumn Affair (September – November)
Autumn is an extended summer, rains continue and hurricane season is usually September and October. For autumn weddings, we recommend extending summer wedding advice. If Autumn is the season you need to celebrate, we recommend doing it towards the end of October as the rains start slowing down in November.
