Beginner May 2023

Is May a good month for Socal wedding?

Anita, on October 9, 2022 at 2:56 PM Posted in California Planning 0 2
Is there anyone who got married in May in Southern California? Or attended a wedding in May? What was the weather like on your wedding day? Our venue would be 15-20mins from the beach in Orange County (so not super close to the water, I know its cooler by the coast but we’re not inland either where it gets warmer). I’m debating between May or Sept/Oct. I know in May you might get that gloomy, cloudy weather (May Gray/June Gloom is usually that time). So I was just wondering if it will be too chilly and gloomy in May? But again you might get those gloomy days in September/October too, it just rained 2 days here in September so I guess you never know when it comes to weather. Anyways, I would appreciate if anyone can share their experiences. Thanks!

    We’ve lived in Southern California for 6 years and the weather is pretty consistent. It rains a few days between January and March at the coolest time of the year. March to April is when it starts to heat up and it cools down at the start of October. We have never experienced “June Gloom” so can’t comment on that. If you want to avoid heat, go for September. Peak season as far as vendor costs is year round.

    The fog and overcast that makes things gloomy along the coast should not go 20 miles inland. May should normally be okay weather. It does not get stuck in a hot mode until August or September.
