If you are interested in getting married in one of the most popular locations in Florida, then this is the read you need! Today we are going into the subject of how to figure out the best time to get married. Let’s see what you need to cross off the list to figure out the perfect time.
Check the weather
Tampa is considered to be pretty wet during the summer, so one of the best seasons to get married there is either in winter or spring (October through May). The rainy season in Florida is in the summer period, from May to October. The moment you start planning a Tampa wedding, the months to consider are November or March.
PRO TIP: if you wish to plan a summer celebration during the rainy season, we recommend choosing venues where you can set up earlier in the morning just in case the pop-up storms do take place. If the venue doesn’t allow morning setup, it would be more difficult to be achieved during the afternoon.
Getting around the city
Once you have determined the best time to get married in terms of which month, the next thing would be getting around the city. Having a Tampa wedding can be a pretty exciting event, and we advise you to make the most out of it. It is a perfect place to visit a festival or an event, and research some places where your guests can be accommodated (whether they are for couples, friends, or maybe parents that have small children).
Start browsing through venues
The next (and maybe one of the most important) step is searching for the perfect venue to have your wedding. Make sure to get synchronized with the season and start looking through the options! Let’s categorize to make things easier –
– Wedding on the beach – Tampa is best known for its wedding venues that are located right on the beach, and if you are looking into dipping your toes in the sand while saying your “I dos”, there are plenty of options to choose from.
– Wedding off the beach – on the other hand, for those who feel like having a wedding in Tampa should be in an off-beach venue, the array of locations is just as wide! There are plenty of hotels and ballrooms, as well as historic venues where you can swear to eternal love with your partner.
– A rustic wedding venue – if you are a lover of the rustic style, Tampa, yet again, has you covered! The rustic venues set the perfect scenery for those who wish to have a countryside fairytale.
Avoid the ruckus
When you are looking for the best time to get married in Tampa, one thing that should stick out is that Tampa is considered to be a pretty busy city at certain points – there are plenty of events and festivals. If you are one of those people who want to blend in with the crowd, then you can set the date at the same time as a nice event you and your guests would like to visit. However, if you want to avoid the crowds, check whenever Tampa is not that busy with traffic and set your date then.
PRO TIP: In essence, the most crowded period is in November, so if you are planning a Tampa wedding during this month, make sure you plan extra cushion time for transport as the traffic can be very busy.
