Destination Weddings: Avoiding Rainy Season?

Q:

We definitely want to have our ceremony, if not our whole reception, outside. How do I find out the rainy season for the locations that I am considering?

A:

Rain is one thing many couples fear will put a damper on their special day -- it's certainly one thing you can't control! Luckily, you can hedge your bets. There are a number of online resources that specify the rainy seasons for places around the world. The CIA World Factbook and any of the major travel guide websites are great places to start. For a complete list of the best places to get married during each month, check out Destination Wedding Basics: The Best Times to Get Married .

What's the Basic Wedding Reception Timeline?
