When to Go

Orlando is crowded with tourists for most of the year especially during national holidays and school spring breaks. Therefore, it is advisable to plan your wedding around the off-peak season months, between June and August to ensure you have a less hectic ceremony. This is also considerate to your guests as it allows them to travel into the city easily. Additionally, wedding planners and vendors are more likely to work with a lower budget at these times compared to the high season.

You can also choose a weekday as the day of the wedding instead of a weekend. This will a long way in helping you to get special rates at some venues or even trim down your guest list. If you are planning a summer wedding, we recommend you choose an indoor venue due to the extreme temperatures experienced in the city. Do not put your guests through heat exhaustion.
