This Is The Best Time Of The Year To Get Married, Based On Your Zodiac Sign
After you get engaged, there is one question everyone wants an answer to, and that's, "Have you set a date?" It's a basic question, but in some ways it’s the most important one of all, because so much about where and how the wedding will play out is based first and foremost on what time of year it will take place. For instance, if you want an outdoor wedding, the winter is probably not the best time of the year to get married, but it might make for a really cozy ceremony in a chalet. So, before you can even pick the venue, the first thing you need to do is decide what time of year you want to walk down the aisle. Not to mention, what day you want to be celebrating your anniversary for the rest of your lives.
How do you pick the perfect time of year? Well, it has a lot to do with your personality, which affects what you consider to be your dream wedding. That said, it makes sense to consider your astrological sign, which can help you decide if you're more of winter, spring, summer, or fall wedding kind of person. So, before you book that chapel, here's how that all breaks down, based on your zodiac sign.
A Winter Wedding: Taurus, Cancer, and Scorpio
TAURUS (APRIL 20 TO MAY 20): Late winter and early spring is a special time of year for Taurus. They associate all of the month of February with romance thanks to one St. Valentine. So, why not make that month officially special to you in particular by planning your wedding to coincide?
CANCER (JUNE 21 TO JULY 22): For Cancer, a winter wedding has all the magical coziness of a dream wedding. Being surrounded by friends, family, and the person they want to spend their life with while the snow and wind blow outside is basically what love feels like to this sign, so it just makes perfect sense that they would love a winter wedding.
SCORPIO (OCT. 23 TO NOV. 21): For dark and mysterious Scorpio, a winter wedding with its long nights is the ideal time to walk down the aisle. In fact, the perfect day for a Scorpio nuptials is the longest night of the year, the Winter Solstice.
A Spring Wedding: Aries, Capricorn, and Pisces
ARIES (MARCH 21 TO APRIL 19): For impulsive Aries, why wait until later in the year to get married when you can do it the minute wedding season starts? In fact, maybe you should just go ahead and elope. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that, by getting married early in spring, you’ll probably be the first to make it down the aisle — not that it’s a competition or anything. Ahem.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22 TO JAN. 19): Capricorns love a wedding, not because they're overly romantic, but because it's an event steeped in layer upon layer of tradition. So, of course this sign is going to want to plan their wedding day in spring, the time of year that's traditionally considered "wedding season."
PISCES (FEB. 19 TO MARCH 20): The innate romance of a springtime wedding makes this season the ideal time for Pisces, the most traditionally romantic sign of the zodiac to get married. Just think of how beautiful you and your soon-to-be spouse will look surrounded by blooming flowers as nature is reborn, in your wedding photos.
A Summer Wedding: Leo, Virgo, and Sagittarius
LEO (JULY 23 TO AUG. 22): For Leo, their wedding day is the day they truly get to be the star. I mean, really, all days are days they get to be the star, but this time it’s tradition, too. So, of course they want to show off in a gown that highlights all their various assets — which isn’t going to work in the dead of winter. So, a sunset wedding in the middle of the summer when the light is gold and dreamy, sets just the right tone (and temperature) for this sign.
VIRGO (AUG. 23 TO SEPT. 22): For Virgo, their wedding day needs to go perfectly and without a hitch. They really can't risk the temperamental weather of the rest of the seasons to cause a problem, so early summer is perfect for a Virgo bride. It’s not too hot or too cold, so you can have an indoor or an outdoor wedding. Either way, it will be meticulously planned.
SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22 TO DEC. 21): For a nature-loving wild child like Sagittarius, there is no question that they will want an outdoor wedding. They need the sun on their skin and breeze in their hair when they say “I do.” It reminds them that they are still free and independent even after they tie the knot. So, a summer wedding, when the weather is warm, is perfect for Sag.
A Fall Wedding: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius
GEMINI (MAY 21 TO JUNE 20): For mercurial Gemini, fall is the season with which they most identify. It’s a season of transformation, and the changing leaves being caught up in cool breezes just feels like the right time to head down the aisle to this air sign.
LIBRA (SEPT. 23 TO OCT. 22): For Libra, their wedding should be both a ton of fun — they are, after all, the social butterflies of the zodiac — but also full of glamour. Fall is perfect because the weather isn’t so cold that people are in hibernation mode and are still ready to seek out the last of the summer fun, but also, the stunning leaves in all their bright fall colors will make a gorgeous background to your wedding photos.
AQUARIUS (JAN. 20 TO FEB. 18): If Spring is the traditional wedding season, then it follows that Aquarius would choose to wed in the opposite season. There is nothing traditional about this sign. They favor something unique, edgy, but that still boasts a ton of romance, so late-summer, early-fall is when Aquarius should walk down the aisle.
While knowing which season works best for your sign to get married is useful, the most important thing is that it feels right for you and your partner as you kick off your life together, and all the adventures that are sure to follow.
